I typically have 20 or so VSTi tracks in my projects and have to freeze them all to take them to another studio for recording live overdubs and mixing. It is taking a tremendous amount of time to have to wait for each individual VSTi to freeze before starting the next one.
Is there anyway to set a macro for this? Even if they froze sequentially, I could at least go do something and comeback once it's done. Sitting for 20min freezing VSTi's 1 by 1 is getting really tiresome.
Any ideas would be showered with praise and undying affection

In Sonar X2, for example, I can click on a single button and almost instantly turn an instrument track into an audio one. Because a frozen track, unlike with Cubase, is a fully-editable audio track. In Cubase, a frozen track is a dead one, it won't even stretch. Which means that you can freeze tracks only when you're completely done with tracking and editing. I.e. useless.
I wish the people at Steinberg took this issue seriously, but from what I've seen, it's been ignored for years, despite many people asking for improvements in this area.

No it isn't
In Studio One you can just mark all midi files (on the midi track) and hit Bounce like on any audio track. It will add an audio track to your song from that midi instruments output.

Rather they will complicate things in their own way, just to be able to say that they are not copying Studio One. Whatever Studio One has already implemented, Steinberg will surely ignore. Instead they wil try to reinvent the wheel, and we will get tons of some strange and unintuitive functions and toys, just so that the title "update" can be pushed on.
Good thing is that Studio One team is not like that - they seem to have no problem with implementing good features, even if they are already existing in Cubase or other DAWs. It is only a matter of time when Studio One will take over. They are much more open, quick and adapt much better to modern production techniques.
Cubase is a good DAW, but it is not a modern one. It is like an old Mercedes. It is reliable more or less, it drives well, servicing and updating is a bit expensive though.... But for all the latest technology one must look somewhere else. Studio One is a really good choice, and it will become even better with time. And it evolves much more quickly than Cubase. Of course, even Studio One will reach its plateau, but then there will again be another fresh DAW, leaving all others in its shadow... Thats just the way it is with things, time leaves things behing.

programming is not so easy
