Fast render of VSTi instrument clips to audio

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Is there function in Cakewalk for fast bounce/render VSTi instruments instead of manual recording like live instruments? For example in Cubase there is feature when right click on midi clip of virtual instrument (VSTi) there is option to render that clip to audio (it will automatically create new audio track and render selected VSTi clips to audio). This feature is available on almost any other modern DAWs I know and I dont fond this how to do in Cakewalk... If this function available then could someone tell how to done this?

I have attached screenshot with how this looks in Cubase 11 PRO.

@the arlicht    You can drag the clip from freezed track to the next empty audio track, and it becomes an audio clip, not linked to VST Instrument. After you can delete the original tracks, and the original VST Instrument itself, the audio material will remain intact.

Yes.

And both freeze and bounce to track are track level operations.

There is no clip level rendering in CbB.

Bounce to tracks works on selected clips (it's actually a time-based selection of the track so technically still a track level operation).

That what I mean - just bounce only selected clips to audio, not whole track indeed. Thanks again scook! Unfortunately this thing with freezing and then unfreezing, then cropping whole rendered track to a needed single clip - it all feels too messy, too oldschool and just too much time needs to make so simple task unfortunately... I hope that maybe in future there will be added this great function to CW...

I tested after I wrote the reply and corrected it.

Bounce to track(s) can create a new track based on a time range.

Freeze is not applicable.

I use freeze in Cakewalk it works better than the freeze in Cubase. What you are talking about in Cubase is Render in Place. Cakewalk's is more elegant. For example try render in place multiple MIDI outs of say Kontakt? Cakewalk will freeze each instrument in Kontakt on its own track if that is how you have Kontakt  setup. Nuendo, which I have, will make a mess of it. In Cubase if you use freeze the audio tracks are hidden. In Cakewalk use freeze in the Synth Rack.
