Default How to quickly link all parameters between two Identical FX

I will often double or triple track lead vocals. I use slate's virtual mix rack (VMR) on all of the tracks. I usually want the same chain on all tracks with identical settings. What I'd like to be able to do is open the FX chain for my lead vocal, make changes to the settings and/or swap out VMR modules and have all of the changes automatically apply to the FX chains on the double and triple tracks. How would I go about setting this up in a way that wouldn't require going in and manually linking every parameter whenever I add a new VMR module?

You can't directly link parameters on different tracks, unfortunately. There are a few ways to work around that limitation though - for instance, having a script that automatically updates the children when you change the parent. Have a look for Set selected tracks FX parameters values from last focused FX (real-time) on ReaPack, or just search for "fx parameter" to see a few others.

And, once you have set it all up for the three tracks, save them as a Track Template for next time.

or, I imagine, adding Automation item to all source FX parameters, then adding pools to child FX. But in this case you can control stuff only with TCP.

There are a couple of JS plugs out there that can help you link parameters across tracks. It’s a little fiddley but works. Another option might be to put them all in one “rack track” where linking parameters is easy. Assign each a different pair of channels and route from the vocal “tape tracks” through the “rack” and on to another set of “mixer tracks”. I don’t think the hassle of feedback routing to have them back on the original tracks is worth it, but it could be done, too.

Thank you all for the answers! "Set selected tracks FX parameters values from last focused FX (real-time)" is close enough to what I need.
