"Freeze Instruments"

Post by fishmac » Fri Apr 29, 2016 3:48 pm

You are done with production and it comes to the mixing part. You want to free up ressources, so you freeze tracks. But you still want your Effects to be tweakable.
Right now you would have to: Remove all FX from your track, Freeze the Instrument, put the FX back on the track.
What about the Option to freeze only the Instruments while keeping the FX online?

+1 Never thought of this but this is actually pretty smart!

especially on my underpowered dual core work laptop

Yep, really good idea. I'd like that too.

+1. It's mostly polyphonic patches taking up resources, not the effects I have on the track. Also, with this in place, we would finally be able to freeze instruments with sidechain and other routings on them.
Please vote! Live 10's "multi" clip editing should allow selection+editing of multiple clips in one action:
