Freezing of plug-ins is not working
- Live Versions: 5 -9
- Operating System: All
When routing MIDI tracks to a track containing a multi-output plug-in, freezing these MIDI tracks is not possible and the message “The track 'x-MIDI' has no audio output to freeze” is shown.
Freezing MIDI tracks without audio output is not possible.
- Insert the multi-output plug-in on a MIDI track.
- Create several additional MIDI tracks.
- Insert Live's External Instrument on each additional MIDI track and route it to the track containing the multi-output plug-in.
- Use the 'MIDI To' and the 'Audio From' choosers of the External Instrument devices to create the desired MIDI and audio connections.
- Freeze the tracks which contain External Instrument devices.
This is only a solution for multi-output plug-ins because plug-ins with a single stereo output are not available in the External Instrument.
Please note that the track which hosts the multi-output plug-in can't be frozen due to a routing restriction in Live.
