Okay, I'll move this thread if no one else is going to . . . because I have a question. What is the difference between inserting Konatkt, or any virtual instrument, as an effect in an audio track in Sonar vs inserting it as a synth? Is it just to get more control of the panning, as discussed in the earlier thread, or are there other reasons?

I have been using it only as an effect and I've never had to freeze tracks to free up memory. I have 2GB of RAM on a dual core intel chip pc. I am using Konakt 2 and Sonar PE 6.
