Freeze Track/column/plugin

I’d really like the ability to ‘freeze’ my plugins that are CPU intensive, like my EWPlay based stuff (Voices of Passion, anyone?). The reverb is very nice, and I’d like to keep it on and listen to it, which could be done by freezing the track or plugin.

By this, I mean bouncing a track (or plugin) to audio and simply hiding or disabling changes to the notes in the track. The corresponding VST/VSTi/FXChains could be freed from resources and the audio ‘frozen’ would be played back instead from a stream. Of course, when you’d need to edit the column again, you could unfreeze (which would load back all of the VSTs) and get back to work.

Just a thought! It would be VERY handy.
