Eucon Command to mute sends A-E on all channels

Hey everyone. I posted this over on the DUC forum as well, but thought I'd give it a shot here too.

Anybody have a suggestion for how to setup a softkey in Pro Tools Control to mute sends A-E on all channels in the session? I always send headphone mixes from send A, and would like a one button solution to turn all of the headphone sends off. I've been working on it for two hours and can't seem to figure out the right combination of commands.

I know it's not a EUCON command for you, but how about setting up a mix group for all of the channels with headphone sends? Uncheck "Follow Globals" and under the attributes tab select only "Send a mute". Also de-select all the boxes under "Mix Attributes". Then simply activate or de-activate the group when you do or don't want the headphone send solo.

Another option is to route your headphone sends to a "solo safed" aux input whose output is the physical out your headphone system is hooked to. Muting that send will mute everything to the cans.

I tried creating a group for all tracks with only the mute sends attribute selected, but the eucon key command still only affects the selected track.

Im using a furman headphone mixer system, which makes it more complicated, but I guess I could make aux tracks and route the headphone mixes through them, but there could be delay issues.

I like your thinking though!
