Can I copy tracks in ProTools without copying the audio regions on those tracks but still preserving the input, output, and pan settings?
I believe when you do "Duplicate Track", you have the option of what to duplicate; you can choose to not duplicate the regions, but preserve everything else…
Don't have it in front of me to test, but I remember seeing those options last time I duped a track.
Yes, you can use "duplicate track" dialog for this. Alt+D if i'm not mistaken although i usually mess these ones up when I'm not actually working
