My understanding of the freeze function is a means to free up cpu usage.  In 
mantis you mentioned the ability to add effects to a track without the cpu 
requirements affecting the realting capabilities of the rest of the tracks.  
Well that is where the freeze function comes in (I think).  You can freeze 
the track/s with high cpu usage and that will I assume store the track / play 
the track in some way that will reduce the cpu overhead that the effects have 
placed on it.

What is isnt, is a way to make life easier when editing a region/track/file in 
an external sound file editor.


If that is completely wrong It will probably provoke enough interest for 
someone to correct me.
