      Mixing a session in studio one with lots of track is a challenge when it comes to tracking overdubs with amp sims.
      For my mobile rig I use a new scarlett 18i8 2nd gen.
      The latency is quite good at low buffer setting (down to 5ms).
      But with some tracks loaded with plugins I have to raise the buffer to 256 or 512+ to avoid crackling noise.
      This gives me a latency of 20ms and more. Horrible for tracking guitars.

      Is there a easy way to freeze the tracks but maintain the sound and change it back afterwards?

      Thank you!

        You can monitor directly through your interface without latency, with the "monitor" turned off in the daw. The problem is if you are using amp sims you just hear a dry di sound until the amp sim goes on it. Thinking out loud, could you split the track and monitor with an amp to get your overdrive or effects and a real feel, and record the dry di and put your amp sim on it in the DAW.
