Default show / hide sets?

Is there a way to show / hide a group of tracks with a keystroke?

I am familiar with Screensets / Layouts Track Views, but each entry saves the state of ALL tracks, rather than a certain group. I would like to show or hide a group of tracks with a keystroke, leaving what ever tracks are currently visible (or hidden) as they are, which may be different at any point in time.

IE if you're working on your drums for a while, then want to show your bass tracks, then maybe your drums bass and synths, etc... using Screensets / Layouts, you have to predefine all these possible combinations and save them, rather than just hit a keystroke to show / hide each of those groups as you want to see them.

Is anyone doing this?

Thanks!

use SWS snapshot. It works for saving track state visibility and much more. also you can assign single shortcut to load/save any snapshot you need.

Using SWS Snap shots, to get track groups to toggle visibility with a keystroke, do you use a cycle action or does SWS Snapshots support toggles?

I usually name my tracks in such a way that the visibility filter in track manager allows me to filter to certain groups multiple groups of instruments etc.
