AU Manager....?

Post by tobybennett » Wed Jun 29, 2011 1:48 pm

Does anyone know of an Audio Units manager that would let you put AU's in custom folders such as your most used? I saw one on-line but it's out of production. Is this something I can do myself or by re-arranging my AU's this will mess up how my Mac and Ableton finds them?

Thanks for your help

I do not use VST's, mostly use Live and sometimes Logic 9.

There used to be a bunch of them, all free, but now all discontinued. I haven't found one in a while....

Audiofile Engineering used to have a free separate Audio Unit Manager, however they now have AU/VST management rolled in to Backline:

:arrow: AudioFinder does have a plug-in manager and it's quite a good audio tool too.
