FX Freeze

VST Instruments and VST Effects are supported

Product overview

FX Freeze is a DAW CPU resource management tool, which will help you forget about CPU, RAM or poliphony shortage problems while working with VST instruments and/or FX.

How does it work?

Special programs, called FX Freeze wrappers, are installed into your VST plug-ins folder. Use them instead of usual FX or instruments. All works in the normal way, except in the plug-in window there's an additional line with two flake icons. To freeze a plug-in just click on the flake icon, play the desired portion of your song, and all the plug-in outputs will be bounced to disk. During the following work the frozen plug-in will stream from disk and the DSP part of frozen plug-in will be bypassed. In Ultra-freeze mode both the plug-in and its libraries also will be unloaded from RAM. The resources previously taken by the plug-in are ready to be used for any further processing. Therefore you can maximize the CPU and RAM resources for DAW work. All frozen plug-ins are saved within your song. Also it takes just one mouse click to unfreeze the plug-in. FX Freeze wrappers make no overhead and are not at all noticeable until you decide to turn on the freeze function.
