So, "consolidate" 'joins' adjacent sections together, doesn't 'apply'
any effects, and puts it in place of the old multiple segments?
"Bounce" creates a new audio file which includes effects/EQ/plugins, but
doesn't put it in the project anywhere?
"Freeze" replaces the current region with one which has all
processing/plugins applied. All you have to do is remove the
plugins/EQs/etc and it will already be in place and active?
Check out the website I've been cobbling together. It will never be
done, but it's a start:
My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer. Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
