Transform to Rendered Audio to include selected Plugins Only

asked Mar 8, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by tshadgett (4,590 points)
When Freezing (or transforming) a track to Audio, it would be nice to select the plugins that I want to include.

Example: I might have a track with a DI'd guitar running through an Amp Sim, then an EQ and Compressor or some other effect. The Amp Sim is the biggest CPU hog in that instance, so would be good just to render that plugin and commit to the Amp sound, but leave the rest of the plugins in place as I might want to tweak them later.

Sometimes, it is really tough for me to understand why some FR don't get good result. This FR makes complete sense and should really be useful to anybody nevertheles the workflow.

Especially important for people that uses UAD accelerator to free up the dsp.

Pro Tools' track freeze/commit has a similar feature. This is a big one for me.

Agreed!  I'll add to that and say that maybe whatever inserts are either bypassed or disabled can be ignored when transforming the track to audio and remain on the channel after.  I believe this is how Reaper does it.
