Correct. One can mute/unmute anytime without glitch. One can also
automate mutes (in Ardour4).
Mutes affects output processors only (ie internal(aux) + external sends,
and the track's main output port). Right-click on the mute to further
specificity which send are muted (pre-fader, post-fader, ..)
If you want to disable effect processors and mute the complete track:
deactivate the track. Right click on the track-header in the editor to
do so. Note that this can only be done while the transport is stopped
and cannot be automated.
