The great thing about Reaper is, there's a few different ways to do operations, especially rendering.
I have not yet used "fx on an item" , thought it was a neat idea , very granular , very flexible, but thought it more of something to use as an exception. I also assumed that if you used fx on an item basis , that one would be instantiating more fx i.e. 7 items that needed compression , if on an "item" basis then 7 instantiations of the comp plugin, after all it follows that you can have different settings per item.

Finally, I find "render to stem" more analogous to "freeze" function in AA which I am familiar with.

I'll check out how that works, thanks for pointing it out.
