Duplicating Tracks

You can create multiple copies of tracks in a session, which lets you use the original as a guide while editing or mixing the copies.

In the Duplicate Tasks dialog, you can choose to copy data associated with the original track, as follows:

  • Active Playlist copies only the Edit playlist currently displayed on the original track.
  • Alternate Playlists copies all Edit playlists in the original track.
  • Automation copies all track automation data from the original track.
  • Inserts copies all insert assignments, associated plug-ins, and plug-in settings from the original track.
  • Sends copies all send assignments and settings from the original track.
  • Group assignments copies all group assignments, which adds the copied track to the same groups as the original track.

To duplicate tracks:

  1. Select the track or tracks to duplicate.
  2. Choose Track > Duplicate.

    The Duplicate Tracks dialog appears (Figure 4.42).
