Consolidate, Bounce, and Freeze are all different terms for similar,
but distinct functions. What exactly they do varies from DAW to DAW,
and I can't always keep straight what Ardour refers to them as. Going
Consolidate - Used to make a single audio region and file from
multiple audio regions without any processing added. Typically if you
consolidate a track it will create one large region for all regions on
the track by creating a new soundfile on disk.
Bounce - Typically used to create a new audiofile to represent a
region on disk. Generally refers to doing this with processing. In
Ardour's case this will create a new region in the region list to drag
onto a track.
Freeze - Generally creates a new region in place IIRC with all
processing. Typically used to bypass all processing on the track and
save CPU cycles.
