Right click on an empty spot in the track pane (where, solo, mute, pan, volume is written), select 'duplicate track'.
In general when you are having a problem with something in Vegas, check out what 'right click' might give you.
Keep in mind that duplicating tracks, including the audio data, is the fastest way to use up all your resources. You're opening new instances of all the plugins, and if you have a healthy am't of plugins, you'll start noticing slow downs, stutters when redrawing the screen, scrolling, etc. Better to use busses, and send each track to a bus with all the plugins you are using.
yes - thanks for that - I have specific purposes for doing this and I am aware of the resource problem but in most instances do not have a problem
But I was wondering what people's experiences are with different manufacturer's plugs and if you think some are worse resource eaters than others.
Say Sony , Waves , GRM , OhmBoyz , Native Instruments etc.
And any dif between VST and DX?
