I’m aware that one can freeze VSTis, but i’m experimenting with a workflow / style where (during the composition stage), i don’t want to freeze.
So is there a way to automate a VSTi so that all load is taken off the CPU?
So, for example, at bar 33 in my song i have a VSTi with a very CPU intensive patch that only plays for a couple of bars. Instead of freezing, i’d like to use automation so that this VSTi is turned off and causes no load in the rest of the song. Because i’ve noticed that a VSTis will use CPU, even if they’re creating no sound.
Actually, i don’t think it’s possible, but just thought i’d check with the experts over here!
