|Summary||0000472: Copy/duplicate track|
|Description||A feature to copy a track and all its settings to a new track. This will speed up duplicating tracks with surround panning layouts and insert/send settings for example.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Is this covered by templates, and if so does that resolve this issue ?|
oofus: you mean save a single track as a template, then import it or something? I'm not even sure if that works, but it would be a lot of work to go to, if you're halfway through a song, and just want to duplicate one of 5 tracks (delete all the other tracks, save as a template, quit without saving, re-open, import template??).
There is a good use-case here: http://youtu.be/HOWTTEHw4k8?t=13m26s - basically, you have a complex synth plugin configured with lots of settings, then you want a simple variation of it (a few parameters differnt), without having to screw around with automation.
I think "duplicating a track" for "screwing around with plugin setting" is the wrong approach.
The reason for this:
* You *do* want to "screw around with parameters"
* You *do not* actually want to duplicate the track.
It's just a 'creative workaround', not a solution.
For Audio-tracks there are already various proper solutions (A/B plugins, or use Busses, Aux-send to effect-busses,..), which of those is right depends on the context. Midi-tracks are still behind (only one synth, no A/B possible)
PS. You can also already 'duplicate' audio tracks without the associated automation data, by simply creating new track and choosing the playlist ('p' button of the track-header) of some other track. For Midi-tracks this is yet another feature on the ToDo list.
PPS. You could edit the raw ardour.session XML and duplicate the track by copy/paste (just change the unique IDs).
