My understanding of the 'freeze' function is that it will apply all effects and 
automations to a track so that they dont require extra CPU time during playback.
This is different from disabling a track because a 'freeze' track will still play
and have output.  You really only want to freeze a track when you are not
going to make any more tweaks or modifications to it.
