Wow, Thanks guys. I spent a while coming up with a dummy track solution that worked. I basically created a separate mix bus for all my effects parameters and sends. The idea being I could just put dummy clips at the beginning of songs to reset parameters. It worked alright, but using the push it's a bit more navigation, and not seeing all the playing clips makes it difficult to find your bearings in a large set.

And then I saw the ClyphX suggestion.
I can't believe I've never checked this out before! It provides such an elegant solution to my problem! I don't need to have a whole bunch of extra tracks cluttering up my set. There's no overriding. And I don't have to mess around with setting envelopes which means less tedious mouse clicking when I'm building my set!
So many wins!

Yes, Clyphx is pretty great.
Now must remember to use it more often...
