If there’s a way to get where I need to be, please let me know. Otherwise, I’d like to suggest an improvement to Render In Place.
To my eyes, the most beneficial use of Render In Place is to commit INSERT effects. Like a freeze, but allowing some INSERT effects to remain active on the track.
What I’d like to do is to Render IN PLACE, rather than to a new track. Ideally, to render into a new Track Lane or new Track Version. This way, I could commit some INSERT effects (like Melodyne, for example) and continue using other INSERT effects.
