Volume audio effect presets replace clip volume instead of adding to clip as an effect
I tried to create a Volume audio effect on a clip, boost the levels to +6, and save it as a preset so that I could just grab that preset whenever a clip had maxed out it's volume and I wanted to quickly boost that clip by another 6+dB.
But when I tried to drag the effect onto an audio clip, it REPLACED the existing clip audio volume setting with the named preset --- instead of adding to the clip as an additional effect. So essentially it had no effect whatsoever on the volume, just replaced the primary clip Volume at +6dB with a named preset at the same level.
When adding a Volume effect preset to an audio clip, can the behavior be changed so that it adds to the clip as an additional effect/volume boost?

Hi Phil, despite this being almost 3 years ago… I think they kind fixed it by breaking something else.
Right now with version 15 in 2021 you can no longer save the "Main Clip Volume" as a preset and use that. You HAVE to use the "Volume Effect" to add volume keyframes or changes if you want them to be savable as a preset.
So they broke one thing (my preset for a predefined keyframe fade) and in doing so added your feature request 🙈.
Not sure where to go from here… but I'm not happy mainly because:
The new way does not show the Keyframes on the clip. I will make an extra post about that here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/42916389-clip-volume-keyframes-can-t-be-saved-as-a-preset
