Freeze Partial Device Chain

Post by alex-weej » Sun Dec 18, 2011 7:43 pm

Seen this in Reaper. Perfect solution to using sidechain compression with frozen tracks. You can elect to freeze only up until a certain device in an effect chain, which means you can leave your sidechain compressor live. Compressors are cheap anyway, it's the 500 voice supersaw that's taking up my CPU time!

Current workaround is to group the track and move the SC compression to the group, and freeze the subtrack instead, but this very quickly gets annoying having so many tracks!

You know, even at least just bring up a dialogue to ask if we want it to freeze w/o the compressor and/or what's after it and let it go it's business.

Hell, even if sidechaining is off in a compressor but something is still routed into it, you still can't freeze.
