Making track inactive has no effect on DSP load

Going through a session and “bouncing” tracks by exporting/importing them, and subsequently making inactive the “bounced” tracks, I notice there is no change at all in the DSP load, which defeats the point of bouncing (for my purposes, anyway). Is this known? Could there be something wrong with my setup? Version 3.5.403.

I think I know what happened. Using the bass character plugin from Mixbus adds a huge jump in the DSP level the first time you add it, and thereafter an incremental level. If I deactivate all but one track with this plugin and then deactivate that remaining track, the DSP level drops as expected.

You will also find that the Track Freeze operation does what you want in one step.
