Default Confused with freeze/bounce of VI-tracks

sorry for the newbie-question - I did some research beforehand, but not to my satisfaction. Just starting with VIs.

I was under the impression, that due to the nature of VIs and their use of samples, there is no such thing as track freeze and offline-bouncing and that the workflow needed to be to record each VI-track to a separate stereo track in real-time, and these new tracks then can be bounced to a stereo-file.

I was really surprised, that freeze and offline-bounce did work (using VSL and NI Kontakt). But since I only was experimenting, I did not fully test things, just a 6-track minimalistic arrangement.

So: does freeze/bounce really work (flawlessly?), or did I encounter a happy circumstance, where it worked and the normal workflow should be to record to individual tracks and work from there?

It works, as it should. And you just proved it. There is no reason freeze should not work, some code runs saves a copy of the audio and replays that instead of reprocessing it each time.
