  Duplicate Track Alternative    ⌃⌥⌘D

This looks interesting. I haven’t really paid attention to track alternatives – they use the same channel strip and plugins which is typically what I want to manipulate.

My typical workflow is to separate the interesting part into a new region and place that region on a new track. I can manipulate as much as I want, only affecting the isolated region(s). It is clearer to me working this way as opposed to doing region-based processing which I might use for repair. Think special processing on chorus vs. verse.

You can create and edit track alternatives and switch between them. Each alternative can contain different regions or arrangements, while sharing the same channel strip and plug-ins. Track alternatives are like “playlists” for individual tracks that can be used to try out different ideas or archive tracks at different stages of development.
