What is live.grid's freeze option?


    Dec 20 2013 | 3:23 pm
    I saw in the help for live.grid that there is a color for frozen cells, but i can't seem to figure out what it is or does. The reference tells me that i can send a "freeze step-index [int]" message, but i didnt succeed in getting anything to happen.
    What is this exactly?

      weird - it doesn't seem like there's a way to "freeze" any way...
      devs?

      Just played with buffer shuffler 2.0 today and it had a freeze parameter that freezed the incoming audio.

      Yes, i think it has something to do with the chuckle~ object, that one can freeze audio and the live.step help says you can use those two objects together (i assume buffershuffler uses chuckle~). However i just use live.step to be able to select some steps, and the manual lacks any explanation about what freezing does for live.step.
