Yes, we need Freeze Tracks in Ableton; it will significantly lessen how often this message appears:

"A serious program error has occured. You should try to save your work under a new name using the Save As command from the File menu and restart the application."

Aside from "computer freezes all the time" I see this wonderful thread. Please, please, please Ableton: freeze tracks! You are soooo close to the perfect CPU-efficient recording/mixing software if you can just manage the plugin issue! How else can we possibly run all our EQ, compression, reverb, guitar amp plugins on all our tracks? If at all possible, don't wait until version 5 for a feature like that!

it's not a no-brainer because naturally we would like to see the freezing happen without the music halting in the process, right?

Wouldn't you like to be able to drag a midi clip to an audio track and have it automagically render the clip to audio for you? I guess it's not freeze in the "traditional" sense but it's quite similar. If they implemented that I think I would wet my pants, seriously. I'd even pay $100 extra for it.
Great idea! Should be a way of doing it with audio tracks too!!

I think automatic freezing would be pretty great!

It would be mega handy. HOWEVER, are we really wanting live to replace our (traditional) daws here?

don't get me wrong, i've never been more productive since i moved to live, but i think the reason it's so fluid is that i've never seen a progress bar come up on screen while it 'thinks' (consolidate tracks doesn't count).

I've had along good think about this, and there are certain processes which a computer just can't do in realtime (which is the point of 'LIVE' is it not). I don't think they can keep adding this stuff whilst keeping it so easy to use ya know?
