    I don't like having a track copy just for making a different sound which probably originates in the time when track count was still important because of the CPU you had.

    I even do Warren's vocal thickening trick completely with FX Sends. I've got an Aux for exciter, distortion, 8va, 8vb, whisper and micro shift.

    But now, that I work more and more with sub-busses, I have to be more careful, because if you use sub-busses and the effects are coming from the track's send, you can't simply change the volume of the sub-bus because that will change the amount of effect on the tracks.

    A benefit of FX sends is, that if you decide you want that same effect on a different track you simply dial in the send.
