At this point it easy to see how both OH tracks (“OH-L” and “OH-R”) appear to be highlighted, this means they have been temporary grouped together. The user can for example pull one of their faders and both faders will move.

These tracks will remain temporary grouped until the user clicks any other track that is not part of the group and highlights it, like the “KICK” track for example. As soon as this happens, the temporary group will be dissolved. At that point, the previous tracks will not be highlighted anymore, indicating the temporary group has been eliminated.
