I use the arranger track on many of my projects to create different arrangements/edits of songs (I simply flatten various arranger chains and then export the stereo out of the flattened project), and I started to freeze my VST tracks to save CPU and be able to work with smaller buffer sizes. Even though I have a high end PC, the latency is unworkable otherwise, for example, when trying to record vocals and monitor through Cubase.
However, when trying to flatten an arranger chain in a project with frozen VST Instruments, I get an error dialog box saying something like (“Can’t flatten arranger chains of a project with frozen tracks”). This is maddening, since this means I can’t use two major features of Cubase together! Am I doing this wrong? If not, are there alternative ways to accomplish the same thing)? Thanks in advance for any feedback!
