Topic: effect_clone and empty slots
NicotuxHome userMember since 2014
There is no way AFAIK to unload an effect from a slot
Cloning effects only clones currently loaded slots
So that the result is not the clone from original but a mixed set of effects : those present in cloning source deck with those present in destination deck
when this is not really a problem with 1 slot, with 3 this becomes one and with 6...
Note only "numbered slots" are cloned, not videofx and releasefx and colorfx ones

What is the problem with having a slot non-empty?

the problem is:
as cloning do not clone status of slots (but only plugins)
if the effect in destination is active in a slot and corresponding slot is empty in source, fx is still there and active after cloning so that this is not a clone but a mix with already present plugins in destination deck

this can be a functionality, but a full clone (including empty slots) would be fine too
as well as a clone with slot state.. (and maybe effect parameters if possible too)
