To silence. Commonly refers to a feature on larger mixers where a button (switch) on a channel will silence (turn off) the input source (microphone, tape playback, etc.). Used so that fader and auxiliary sends (post-mute) can be turned off without having to turn down the control (fader or rotary knob) and lose the settings. Some wireless microphone transmitters have a mute switch which silences the microphone but leaves the power on to keep the receiver locked-onto the transmitted signal.
