ReaScripts Pack: Render Tracks in Projects (Freeze feature alternatives)


This packs is about rendering tracks in project.

It can be used to print an unstable VST, but the main purpose is to render to audio virtual instrument, to avoid any kind of randomization down the line. Indeed, most sample-based have some kind of randomization to prevent a similar sounds to be triggered twice in a row, but this means that if you press play two times, it will not trigger the exact same sample. If this is ok composing, when you rich mixing stage of a project, it is good to something final printed, so that sounds is 100% reproducible.

One other use case of rendering to audio MIDI tracks is to allow to press the play cursor anywhere on the track and have a predictable result. For eg, if you press play cursor in middle of a note, it will send note start event from there, despite the fact the note start was before. This kind be problematic for some instrument with long attack etc.

These script can also be used to render plugins to allow manual edition of the audio part, or to compensate some bugs it may has (some of them were actually designed to overcome a bug – now solved – in EZ drummer, and one in ML SoundLab Roots – still unsolved).



Render selected tracks bypassing FX after first FX with matching name and moving items on a send track

This script allows to render a track after an FX of your choice, based on a name pattern. The original track is muted and bypassed for backup, and a send is created to the new track so no new FX instances are created (saving CPU).

Render selected tracks bypassing FX after first instrument and moving items on a send track

This in fact works just like the script above but without popup. Really handy to render synths or other virtual instrument, while keeping post processing FX editable.

Render selected tracks sends as stems on sends tracks

Very handy to render multi-out VST like Drums VSTi on the send tracks, directy on the sends tracks. This mute original tracks as it is not necessary after this. As you can see, render is directly made after send on the signal chain, so FX on the sends tracks are not printed, which allows to continue mixing from there.
