All right, now we are going add one more track to our song, and we've set up Craig over there with his fiddle, and we've got a microphone on him. I have already routed the mic to the next track here in the song, we've labeled it properly, over to Input Matrix and so we have routed the mic over there. Now Craig asks if he could have a little bit of reverb on his fiddle as he was recording this track, so I have turned on a Convolution Reverb setting. Watch what happens if I go to record, though. Go to Record Enable and hit Record, it will roll for a little bit, and now I am seeing this CPU Overload message here, it's telling me to use a higher record buffer size or reduce the number of active plug-ins in your project.
Basically what this means is running the effects simultaneously with the recording is taxing the CPU of the iPad a little bit too much. Now one option you have here is to do what's called freezing your tracks. This basically bounces your tracks in place and just locks them so you can't change them in the effects but that freeze up a lot of the CPU cycles so you can focus them on your recording. Now the way to do this is to go to the Tracks, tap the FX button, and here you will see the Freeze button. I'll tap that, it will take a couple of moments to freeze it, and when it's frozen you see this little snowflake icon on top of it.
You will see a little asterisk or snowflake icon next to the FX button there so you know that that track is currently frozen. And you basically want to go through and do this to all of your tracks. So I am going to go through and just freeze all of these tracks now. All right, so we kind of fast-forwarded through that process, but now all of the other tracks are frozen in place. That will free up enough CPU cycles for us to be able to record this track with some reverb on it. So the track is Record Enabled, rewind all the way back to the beginning, and here we go.
