No way to organize plugins?
 
Hi Guys

Man, I would love to be able to organize my plugins. I have sooo many, and I need them all but 90% of the time I am using the same 10. Have any of you found a way to organize plugins better?

Is there any way to make a folder somewhere on the Mac that pro tools can read?

You can add them to your favourites list and they will appear at the top of the plug in list.

You’re on a Mac, so if you Command click the plugin in the list, it should be added as a favourite.

For Windows users, its Ctrl-click. You should also start using Track Presets. That can add ALL your desired plugins to a track with a single command:D But wait! There's MORE:p:p:p The recently added search feature can save lots of scrolling:o

Yeah, I use all of that, but actually didn't know of the favourite plugins thing. Very nice.

Once you get into habits(like the rest of us;)), you may also find that there are a lot of plugins that you don't really care about. If you drag those out of the Plugins folder(I would move them to a new folder on the desktop) and they will not take up space on the lists(and PT loading may speed up a bit if you removed a lot). Any time you decide you need one of those, just drag it back into the Plugins folder before opening PT:D

I do this like twice a year at least. If I can't remember the last time I loaded it it goes in the bin.
