  1. Go into arrange view, expand the master track enter image description here
  2. Enter draw mode: press ctrl+b or click on the pencil button at the top of the screen next to the little keyboard. You want it to be yellow. enter image description here
  3. Use draw mode to zero out a region of the Master Mixer - Track Volume automation enter image description here
  4. Exit draw mode: press ctrl+b again, or click on the pencil button so that it is no longer active.
  5. Use the pointer cursor to click on one of the automation corners to the right, deleting it. enter image description here
  6. Delete the other rightmost automation corner. Now the automation curve should be down at the bottom for the rest of time. enter image description here
