Hi everyone. I’m new here. I recently crossgraded from Pro Tools (2018) and I’m loving the flexibility, customization, and workflow enhancements. So far there is very little that I prefer doing in PT over Cubase, but the way that Pro Tools does the Freeze and Commit functions is vastly superior because I can do those functions across multiple channels (even Aux tracks) with a simple right click.
I’m shocked that, for a function that’s been around in Cubase for such a long time, that the ability to freeze does not exist on Group and FX tracks. In a normal mix session where I’ve got 50 audio tracks, I’ve probably got 50-70 group and FX channels up those channels have about 80% of the plugins I use. So not only is the freeze function tedious (click a track, wait, click a track, wait, click a track, wait, etc…), but it is incapable of addressing the majority of my DSP usage.
Cubase is already smart enough to know that when I solo a group channel, it should solo all the tracks feeding it and all the FX channels being fed by it. I’d like to submit that a similar kind of logic for the Freeze function would be very helpful, like the way Freeze is done in Pro Tools.
