#23 Add a Silent Play Mode


I use to play bass by listening to MP3 songs played by my computer while reading the corresponding bass scores displayed by TuxGuitar. My problem is that I must stop playing the bass at the end of each page in order to scroll down to the next page, which is not such an easy thing to do while playing a song and trying to minimize the amount of notes missed during this time. One way to go around this is to make use of the TuxGuitar player so that it scrolls down automatically but then it does also play the song which is not what I want. I can not turn off the sound on my PC as it is playing the MP3 song at the same time.

Could you add a feature in TuxGuitard to mute the volume (additional feature in the Play Mode window), in such a way that I can make use of the TuxGuitar Player without any sound coming out of TuxGuitar ?


  • As a workaround for now, if you're using Win7, you could just mute TuxGuitar in the Windows 7 mixer.
