Audio Track Effects workarounds

For several years, users like me have been looking for a way to copy and paste audio track effects.  Almost every project I edit has voice tracks that need sweetening or sound effects that need some reverb to make them match the environment.  I edit hundreds of sequences a year and every time, I have to start from scratch adding EQ, voice enhancements, limiter and adjusting all of those parameters by hand.

I don't understand why this simple feature has never been addressed.

I have 2 workarounds I'd like to share and wondered if anyone else has a suggestion ...

1. Build a template sequence with commonly used effects and settings applied to the audio track mixer, then always start a project by importing the template sequence.  (Drawback is that the template can't anticipate how many tracks of each you will need)

2. Take a snapshot of the UI so that at least you can use it for reference when applying all those settings from scratch.

Does anyone else have a suggestion?  Or a friend at Adobe you can bribe to add the feature?

It can't yet be done in Resolve, either.    So don't feel too bad.

I find myself in the same position and I too am using templates which works for most cases.

You are absolutely right, this is a very basic feature that shouldn't be exclusive to DAWs


I'm working on projects with different sequences that each have similar mixer settings and EACH TIME i have to apply EQ, compression and whatnot (Because of course the mixer doesn't "save" settings from other sequences within the same project eventhough they use the same track setup)... Very very tiring if you do this the whole day

"Correct answer" doesn't solve the issue. It seems to explain how you can now copy effects from one track to another by drag-and-drop, but does not explain how to copy and paste from one sequence to another. Not so helpful...
