I would avoid freezing because once you do this you cannot retrieve your midi.

So you're happily editing your audio and slicing and mashing it up.

And then you think "I'd like to change my piano chords a bit" - but you can't because your midi has gone and you may not even remember how to play the original!

I have made this mistake before - don't do it this way!!!

Either do shift control r to export the track(s) and the drag/drop back in using windows exploder or resample it.

You still could freeze the track. Just make sure you copy your MIDI files to another track for future editing or export them out and then freeze. And yes, I made that mistake before too lol.
