Thanks for the intresting link.
We use a lot OMF when recording drums in another studio on Logic or PT, and then we come back to Cubase 6. I think it would be an overhead to export a track from Cubase 6 in OMF and then re-import it on another Cubase 6 machine.
The Track Archive function is absolutely genius for replacing individual tracks recorded elswhere (on Cubase 6), just like replacing a single track on a multitrack tape recorder… my request to Steinberg is to have the same genius function to work on frozen tracks.
Looks like we are the only ones using this feature since nobody understands my request…
Frozen tracks is a useful facility, but it could be so much more.
A one button solution for rendering a VSTi or audio track with processing into an proper audio track with the same routing would be immensely useful.
Since Cubase’s track export functions developed to enable individual tracks/instruments to be exported then re-imported, I seldom use freeze, but it could be so much simpler. As it is, I select the track to export, mono/stereo, where to send the file, select re-import into project, then it re-appears at the bottom of the track list…
All the dolts who asked for freeze (because they overloaded THEIR computers) and who never shut up about how limited it was. Now you want it to Export. How do you / we want it to export?
Basic track? Plus all FX? Plus all FX settings? Plus all VST synth Settings? Mind you it would keep the forum buzzing for weeks about how awesome it was and then years or how awful it is.
Render it all to audio and get on with life. Rather than trying to invent things that you can’t see enjoy what’s there already. Sometimes I think that to use the tools that make you creative is better than looking at the tool and saying “If it only was shaped like X I could then make my fortune!”
Study the Export carefully and I’m sure you will find something already there to do a similar job.
