1 Cubase FREEZING explanation
I am still confused on exactly what FREEZING does to VST instruments (and effect for that matter). Can someone please explain it in simple terms? From what I am gathering on my own, when I make a MIDI track with a VST instrument, save the song & then freeze that track/instrument, I am still able to hear (playback) & mix down the track like normal. However, I simply cannot edit when in freeze mode…all of this to save processing power. THIS IS AN ACCURATE SUMMARY EXPLANATION OF FREEZING?

yes, you are doing exactly that when you freeze a track. The processor won't have to calculate that effect or VSTI in real time (which is something that takes up cpu resources). It's especially helpful when your cpu is having problems keeping up.
