Default How to reset volume automation of a segment to 0dB

Hi there

Is there an easy way to set the volume automation of one audio segment to 0dB (reset)?

Just deleting all breakpoints in a segment doesn't always work. Sometimes there are breakpoints next to the the segment border. In this case, i get a ramp, or i have to adjust the border breakpoints manually...

Or maybe this is just an editing/operation setup option?

"Write to" commands are HD or CPT only.

I've only worked without HD features on my mobile rig for a little while, so there's probably a better way, but one way is to:
  • put track into Write auto mode
  • make selection
  • Option+click fader to make it jump to unity
  • start playback
  • stop, and select a piece of the newly recorded automation
  • copy
  • re-select the clip/part you want to set at unity
  • Option+Command+V to paste to fill the copied volume automation to the entire selection
  • follow up with an optional Backspace to delete "surplus" breakpoints
