+1.

I suppose the difficulty is that most audio effects are stereo and freeze is printing the output of the effects if there are any. I can't say that I see an easy way around this since Live doesn't have a notion of a mono track, only mono clips...

Yes, but 'frozen' tracks are clips at heart

hi, yes, but they are post-track clips at heart, meaning that they capture the output of any effects that are inserted in the track. it looks to me like Live treats all effects as stereo, even if they are mono or effectively mono because they're doing the same thing to both channels of a mono input (like a mono clip).

I agree that they could produce mono clips, just looks to me like it would be a little tricky to figure out when exactly that's possible...

Just use the utility to produce a mono signal to be shure?!?
The cool thing about techno still, comparing it to most jazz is the improvisation coupled with raw energy.
