Freezing is very handy indeed smile.gif It just "bakes" the fx in to the track itself. They can't be changed though while froze, but it does save cpu which is very handy!!

Also, you can turn a track OFF with the advanced tools and save some cpu that way as well. Not talking about muting but actually turning the track off, this will save some cpu but you won't hear the track.


*From the Apple Logic Support Site
When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can turn tracks off in the Tracks area. Turning off a track lets you silence a track while still hearing other tracks in the project assigned to the same channel strip.

When no other track is assigned to the same channel strip, turning off a track also saves processing power, because plug-ins on the channel strip are no longer processed. Turning a track off (or turning it back on) takes slightly longer than muting or unmuting the track, due to internal pre-processing. Unlike muting a track, turning off a track can not be automated.

Turn off a track
Click the On/Off switch in the track header.

To turn the track on, click the On/Off switch again.


UPDATE: After talking with Rammikin and learning some new bits about Reaper, I'd say when using REAPER try this.

1.)Try to use FREEZE instead of rendering to a new track with fx. It's more Efficient and it will prevent track glut in your track window.

2.)Make sure the "Don't Process Audio on Muted Tracks" check box is ticked in your preferences. That way, you can save some cpu when you mute tracks.

3.)Start with a higher SAMPLES number and then record/playback and listen for issues, if you don't hear any, lower the number, save the project and try again. The lower you can get that number, the less latency you will have smile.gif
