Logic 9 duplicating multiple tracks with folders - independence problem

    I have a stack of tracks that I'm trying to wholesale duplicate for overdubs (many mics on one drumset).

    I'm trying to use the "pack folder / unpack to new tracks" trick to avoid the very-clunky duplicate-each-track-rename-all-and-reshuffle dance.

    But the new tracks that result in the arrange window do not have their own channel strips -- they just route to the original strip from which they were copied. They aren't truly independent tracks, so they won't work as overdubs.

    Is there any way around this when I unpack the folder? Or is there a way to tell one of these child-tracks "be independent, make your own channel strip"?

    Thanks for your help!

    Two things come to mind that you could try.

    1. Try saving the track stack as a patch. And then create a new track and call up that patch from the Library. I'm not certain if this will work, but it should, in theory anyway.

    2. Do a "save as" command to save the project as another version. Then in your source version, use the track import feature to import those tracks from your "saved as" project.
