Logic 9 Freeze file conversion?

    My buddy told me that freeze files are converted to AAC... I have actually printed while files are frozen. Is this true?

    No.

    Freeze files are saved as 32-bit WAV files.

    You can't open them in Logic either. IF you wanted to access them, you could do a bit rate conversion using Quicktime or maybe Peak lite...

    That's true, but just to be clear, Logic can't open any 32-bit files. Not that you were suggesting that any others could be, just because of your phrasing I didn't want the original poster thinking that there's some unique reason that freeze files can't be opened, but other 32-bit files can be.

    The thing is, there's no reason to open freeze files in Logic. Back in Logic 6, it was not possible to export multiple tracks as 24-bit or 16-bit tracks, nor was it possible to bounce in place, so you could chose a lower bit-rate for freezing and use that as a "hack" for importing tracks. Since Logic 9 offers both full track export and bounce in place, there is no need for that, and freeze files can always operate at the highest bit-rate possible.

    That's not to say that it wouldn't be nice to save/open 32-bit files in Logic; but if I could, I'd still never use it for freeze files.

    They can be opened and converted in Sountrack Pro.

    :cool:

    Thanks George, and good to know about soundtrack pro..

    btw. not sure if this needs to be a new thread, but if you varispeed(pitch & speed) a whole session up or down does that alter any conversion? I love the feature to add a little energy at the end of a mix, but it sounds a bit "wanting" sonically compared to protools vso. I am not saying that I like protools better at all. Logic's varispeed is still passible as long as you don't push it far, like any vso, just wondering what's happening under the hood.

    I agree..


    Thanks for all your post. I am new to the group... but not to logic. I love logic 9!
