Better Freeze options

Post by djrustycans » Tue Mar 06, 2018 9:45 am

Cubase desperately needs better freeze options, especially to cope with projects which contain resource demanding plugins such as Acustica Audio etc..

The ability to freeze groups and fx channels like in Reaper and Pro Tools would be literally life-changing. Being able for example, to work on a drum group/bus until you are satisfied with the sound and then freeze the result to conserve CPU whilst you work on the rest of the mix.

The freeze process should render an audio file which is then shown in the arrange window, in place of the group track. There, you can add extra plugins if you desire!

These features would also make ‘stem’ creation within a project, a much easier process.

+1 YES YES YES!! Cubase is lagging in this area for sure. Let's bring it up to the better level of others like Reaper and Pro Tools (and more). Freezing Group and FX tracks is a giant advantage.
Cubase 9.5, Trashcan Mac 6-core 3.7ghz, High Sierra 10.13.4 OS, AMD FirePro D300 Dual, 64 gig RAM, plugins galore, some hardware, a bunch of real instruments and synths, Apollo 8 TB, etc., etc., and two cats

+1 Freeze / Unfreeze a selection of tracks. Keep the selection memorized when freezing again.
And keep the frozen tracks synchronized when inserting / deleting bars from timeline (calculate them again)

I couldn't agree more. This feature is a must for cubase 10. Remember: Freeze Groups and folders. Show Audio.

Also, when Freezing a MIDI or instrument track, do what SONAR does and display the audio waveform that represents the frozen track content in place of the MIDI.

OS: Win 7 64-bit
DAW: Cubase 7.5 64-bit (and SONAR X2 64-bit)
Synths and effects: More than I care to contemplate, but only the 64-bit stuff ever gets used
