Trigger a track in Ableton while muting all others

Trigger a track in Ableton while muting all others

Hey Everyone.

My goal is to play some additional backing tracks via midi foot pedal.

I am trying to keep my midi assignments simple within Ableton so I've mapped each of my 5 pads to the play buttons at the bottom of each track. (see the MIDI map screenshot)

This works great and allows me to trigger clips in each session with the same midi note. I can use the same 5 pads over and over as I move down to the next scene.

But, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to stop the previous track when the new track is triggered. (Similar to how it works when clips are stacked in a single track). Seems like once the clips are broken up on to separate tracks they will only play out in entirety.

Is there a way to stop the previous track when a new track is triggered? Or am I just not doing this the right way?
