So I'm having an issue when duplicating sequences where some of my audio plugins will reset their settings. I'll often duplicate a sequence when moving to a new round of client revisions. Specifically, if I'm using the Dynamics plugin on audio interview clips, when I open the newly duplicated sequence, the Dynamics plugin settings will have reverted back to factory defaults. I'm using the compressor within the Dynamics, and suddenly, the compressor box is not checked, and any dials I tweaked will have reset. Has anyone else had this problem? It's a massive time-waster. For instance, in a documentary project, I'll have different settings for each interview clip, and I inevitably lose them all and have to copy and paste individually from the previous sequence. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For reference, I've included screenshots of the Dynamics plugin from the original sequence, and from the newly duplicated sequence.
Currently running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 on a MacBook Pro (Retina, Late 2013) and the most up-to-date version of Premiere Pro CC 2018.
Is that a plug-in, something you installed from another software company?
Or just one of the native effects included with PP?
Good question, I should have clarified. The native Dynamics plugin within Premiere.
Can you update Premiere Pro to see if the issue is solved? Let us know.
We've been running into this issue extensively the last few months across all projects and sequences. It's completely crippling as we are never sure that clips are retaining their settings and have to constantly quadtruple check everything each time we open the project. The problem occurs when duplicating the clips with Dynamics already applied via various methods. Most people seem to do this by duplicating the entire sequence. But we are seeing it even with just copy/pasting clips between sequences and we're getting the exact same problems. Or even selecting a clip, alt+dragging a duplicate in the same timeline will reset the Dynamics.
This does not appear to be fixed in CC 2019 as comments on these threads show. Please see these User Voice links for many, many examples of the same problem:
Sorry for the frustration. Thanks for sharing all those link. I located a bug on file that closely matches these issues is being worked on as we speak. I expect to see the bug addressed in an upcoming release. I apologize that this is causing you so much grief.
In the mean time, continue to get colleagues to upvote these bugs so we can get even more traction for them.
Thanks for the quick reply. Glad to hear it's being investigated. I will definitely get more people to upvote the posts in the User Voice forums.
Since Adobe is working on it, would it be possible for you to mark the thread(s) on User Voice with an "Under Review" tag so people know the status? That's one of the best things about User Voice is seeing progress happening and I think people in those threads are beginning to wonder if their voices are being heard.

Sorry, I don't have admin status, so I can't do it personally. I'll message the powers that be, so we can get that taken care of for you.
Honestly, User Voice is more frustrating than anything else. Coming over to these forums, we're getting responses to the bug submissions, while in UV it's pretty much total radio silence from Adobe. I posted about bug in May, and in the 65 comments, there's not a single one from Adobe (Bug - Audio effect settings being reset when duplicating sequence – Adobe video & audio apps ).
Matt's message here about tracking the bug, and having a workaround/interim solution is basically the first we've heard.
Would it be better to not use UV, and post here instead? Please understand that I'm not flaming at all, but am genuinely curious on this.
We are tracking this bug and have a fix in the works. From what I have found about this bug there are a very particular set of steps that cause it. The good news is that it also makes it relatively easy to sidestep. If you are hitting this bug could you try the steps below and report back if you are able to avoid the issue?
Steps to reproduce:
Note that the key to reproducing seems to be playing the sequence as the first thing done after the duplicating step. So, one way to avoid the bug is:
Please let me know if you are able to avoid having effects reset by following those steps, and thank you for your help.
I'm having the same issue, and I agree that this is super inconvenient for the client revisioning process. Would love to see a fix for this ASAP.
The workaround I've been using at the moment is to delete all audio tracks on the duplicated sequence, and then copy over all audio tracks from the previous sequence. This seems to be working for me at the moment.
