Thanks everyone for their suggested work arounds and alternative options for accomplishing what I seek. They should work in the interim. But I definitely believe that having the freedom to select to transform PRE as well as post fader is the most streamlined, convenient and professional way of temporarily rendering tracks to free up your CPU usage in a modern daw such as Studio One. Thank you so much for your votes and keeping my dream alive. I recently upgraded from 3 to 4.1 and have to say that pretty much every missing feature from studio one I have been hoping for has been implemented (better tempo mapping, session data import etc.) EXCEPT this one so I will continue posting and bumping it in hopes of getting more peoples attention and votes until hopefully it is implemented and I am a happy man.
Thank you again for your replies and votes! Cheers!
robertgray3 wroteThanks for pushing this, yeah I wish for this just about every time I transform a track!
No problem! Thanks for your comment and hopefully it gets implemented sometime soon. It's unfortunate I haven't been able to get more votes with this post being viewed over 600 times but every vote counts and I appreciate it!
Of course this is really needed. I read praises on some forums about S1's Transform function and I wonder what are they comparing it to. I mean I use it, it's there, but it's not a "mature" feature by any stretch.
The default behaviour should have been "pre fader/pan" from the beginning, that's a given. But the functionality could improve a lot, here's some examples inspired by Reaper's freezing system, wich is really good at this:
- freeze ANY track, bus, fx. (maybe if you freeze a bus, the bus turns into a stereo audio track, and the tracks that are sending to that bus get disabled -and hidden?-)
- multiple Transform steps: you have a plugin on a track, you freeze it, you put another plugin, you freeze it, you unfreeze the track and the last plugin you inserted appears on the track again, you unfreeze again --> now both plugins appear on the track.
Anything that can help you save some CPU in Studio One, is the best thing the developers can do for Studio One.
I forgot something that would also be a nice addition to the Transform feature (inspired on Reaper too):
- When you transform a track, only the ENABLED plugins get rendered... and the ones that are bypassed or disabled stay on the channel. IMO this is a must-have.
I found some feature requests for the functions I mentioned above:
Transform bus channels to audio (freeze bus)

Transform to Rendered Audio to include selected Plugins Only
https://answers.presonus.com/14876/tran ... 876#q14876
I think it would be really nice to unify all these feature request into a unique "FR: Transform to rendered audio features"

Thanks for your replies, I agree with you completely! I also really love the way reaper does a lot of things except comping.. but i’m starting to feel like I might bite the bullet and adapt to it’s modus operandi and start using it instead.
