Copying and pasting track inserts from song to song

asked Jan 16, 2020 in Studio One 4 by Riker (390 points)
Does Studio One 4 pro have the ability to copy all inserts (comp, verb, eq, tape emulation etc.) from one audio or instrument track to another audio / instrument track in another song ? At the moment I have to copy and paste each insert's settings one by one. Running latest version

Thank you.

I'd create a song template with those inserts and use that.  FYI, Check for updates. 4.6 is the latest.

There is a really cool way to copy things from one project to another.

Go to Song/Import Song Data.

Select the project (song file) that has the inserts you want.

Once the Import Song Data dialog comes up you will see all the components of that song.

Select the track with the desired inserts.  On the right side of the dialog check the boxes for the items to copy/import.

In your case, un-check everything except for "Inserts".

Thanks for the answers. Import song data works, but it brings in the entire track (with inserts) so I have to move the audio from the original track to the imported track then delete the original. Not as time consuming as copy and pasting every single insert so its a step in the right direction. A Right Click - copy all inserts - Paste on any other track in song or even another song, would be ideal.
