I run a mainly hardware setup with a lot of inputs open at once. It would be really nice if I could select multiple tracks and arm them for recording at once, and also do the inverse. It's such a pain to have to click each track individually. Is there a setting for this somewhere?

Hello! Make sure "Auto arm" is selected in the preferences. Then just Shift+select all your tracks you want to arm. And you can always "Arm" and "Unarm" selected tracks at once in the inspector.

I don't want to auto arm every track though. That would be a major pain in the editing stage, after I'm done tracking and don't need to arm everything I click on.

Then just select tracks you need and click "Arm" in the inspector.

You can also assign a shortcut key to “clear all armed tracks” with one keystroke. Same for solos and mutes.

I do ~ to clear all armed. Shift-~ to clear all soloed. And Ctrl-~ to clear all mutes.
