Chapter 39. Project Optimization > Using VST Plug-Ins

Using VST Plug-Ins

VST plug-in effects, as you saw earlier in this book, can be added as inserts or used as send effects on an FX channel track. When doing so, you are processing the audio in real time, as described in Chapter 20. You also can apply VST plug-in effects available on your computer to a file directly, if you want to affect only a portion of a track or don’t want to add an additional real-time processing load on your computer’s CPU.

Remember that when you apply one of these offline process effects to all or part of a selected object, the processed result is saved in a special file, leaving your original file intact. This new file is seamlessly integrated into your project. In other words, you won’t even feel or see it’s a different file, other than the fact that this portion is processed.
