Copy and paste audio effects between tracks and make custom presets for tracks in the audio mixer.
In most of the times I work with audio effects on a track, not on a clip. There is no way to copy the settings.
the 13.1 release is now available, and this workflow has been implemented.
Thanks for the productive feedback on this forum, let us know what you think.
This is not completed as you can only do it between tracks in the same sequence, and not between sequences
Agree with these latest comments. It's great you can now alt+drag rack effects to another track within a sequence, but still not being able to copy between projects, or even different sequences within the same project is pretty ridiculous.
This should not be marked as completed. Basic copy/paste functionality should apply here

Echoing the desire to be able to copy track effects between sequences.

@Patrick Palmer, half the request was completed, we still have no way to copy the effect settings to another project. This is useless to me and like 90% of the others.
This doesn't appear to copy between sequences or save presets... Am I missing something? This is like the emperor's new track effects... It doesn't seem like this was implemented. If the team does think it was implementedthen the request was misunderstood in fundamental way.
What is so different about the audio data that it can’t be saved as a preset like just about EVERYTHING ELSE? Make it savable please....it’s not that big an ask

This is quite a slap in the face! Not only are we asking for a BASIC functionality here but also you mark this ticket as COMPLETED (WHEN IT'S NOT!!) which I'm guessing resets the votes on this request so now we have to start collecting votes on the SAME issue again??
I guess thanks for the copy/paste functionality. It's definitely better than nothing. But don't tell me you implemented this request when you haven't. No one likes a half-a** job.
@ Darren You're right, at least there's momentum in the right direction! One day we'll get our Track Mixer presets. (I may be retired, but...)
Darren Manden commented
Ah, so pretty much track presets? Totally agree.
My current workaround is to have a basic track template, and that is duplicated for new sequences, etc. It's the best I can do at the moment.
Believe me, I'm not saying to give them a pass. I agree with you, but I wasn't sure if you realised that they have FINALLY given us basic functionality...so thought it might help to check in :-)
@Darren The majority of my audio effects happen in the Track Mixer. I have specific Compressor & EQ settings for VO and SOTs which live on specific tracks. It's a big PIA to have to manually enter these settings every time. This is such a no-brainer request and is baffling why Adobe can't/won't implement it. Giving them a pass isn't going to get it done. We must keep advocating. After all, they're not the only NLE in town. The feature set of DaVinci Resolve continues to evolve and is quickly becoming a serious contender. While I appreciate some of the major updates to Premiere, this small request has far greater utility and value than the new Freeform Project Panel (which is prosumer gimmicky).
Darren Manden commented
Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but you can now copy and paste effects between tracks. On PC, hold Alt, and drag the effect to the new track.
No presets though, and copying and pasting between sequences seems to not be possible (unless I'm missing it - entirely possible), but at the very least, we can copy and paste between tracks. Baby steps, but still...steps.

This is only halfway completed. The functionality for copying effects within a sequence is helpful, but most people wanted capability to save effect presets and transfer channel settings between projects. Most of us have a certain way we like vocal tracks, and would like to not have to set up the effects every single time but instead just load a preset.
Every single audio DAW has had this functionality for well over a decade, so it seems like an understandable request.
Another release and our simple request has been ignored by Adobe. Patrick the Product Manager just unfurled his "Mission Accomplished" banner and is celebrating this big victory, BUT, it's not a win for pro users. Pros utilize the Track Mixer for most audio effects across multiple tracks. In case we haven't made ourselves clear for the past couple years, I apologize. Let's try again...
Dearest Adobe, please take pity on us humble editors and allow us to copy and paste AND/OR create presets of audio effects used in the Audio Track Mixer. Perhaps our previous requests got cut off and you only read "Audio Track". Totally understandable. To avoid any confusion or text truncation, I'll hit -return- and let you know what part of Premiere Pro we need this functionality:
-->The Audio Track Mixer
We're not asking for advanced Augmented Reality functionality, but a feature circa 1989 known as "Copy & Paste". Please ignore us no more and add this ASAP. This is something that should've shipped with P.Pro v6. Thank you.

The new version allows moving and copying within the tracks on a sequence. This is a big improvement, but is there any way to move/copy between sequences? The release notes do say "Copy and paste audio effects across clips and projects" but the instructions only talk about moving/copying effects within the same sequence. Maybe I'm missing something.
Any plans for saving presets? I often apply the same compressor/limiter settings so it would be very helpful to be able to just save those settings and use them again in any sequence or project.

Not sure why this is such a huge deal to implement. There's plenty of comments here explaining that this has been a big oversight for years.
Maybe there's a big discussion about adding some radical new feature set that would take care of this and be a paradigm shift for the entire audio UI.... but that shouldn't hit pause on this basic feature. Throw this into the feature request list, plz! Copy and paste shouldn't have to wait on a huge discussion at Adobe. There's been a break down of priorities!
Saving and copying fx would be great! Even better would be saving stacks of Fx in a track, like in video
I've been following this topic for YEARS. Clearly, Adobe isn't listening or doesn't care. This isn't a monumental effort in coding, either. We're asking for something pretty simple in functionality...copy & paste. It's only been around since...well, the beginning of word processors! I feel we've been too nice for too long. It's time to "take to the streets with pitchforks ablaze". ;) We need to step-up our efforts to make this happen. Imagine all the time we'd save with this -simple- feature. No more Mr/Ms Nice Editor, Adobe. We DO have options for quality editing apps. Who will join this revolution for auditory change??
Matt Lyon commented
Wes, I'm glad Adobe is looking into this. There are also some bugs with the existing functionality that need fixing: Many times I have my track filter settings reset themselves with no warning, and I have to redo all the settings from scratch. This seems to happen when the program quits unexpectedly, or when I force quit. I've seen this issue affect the surround reverb, the single channel compressor, the multi-band compressor, and others.
It'd be great to add essential sound effects to a track. I often use essential sound to level dialogue in interviews or elsewhere, when revising edits to add other sections of interview I need to copy or load the preset. It'd be great to just have those effects on a track so anytime I add person 1's dialogue to track 1 it's effects and I have a separate setup for person 2 on track 2. Would be huge.

Please please please assess and implement for 13.0.3
