I have a problem with the way my plugins are displayed in ableton. i can't right click on something and delete it right? How do i edit the waves plugin list.
I have the mercury bundle. the folders show up as 6 waveshell folders and then the plugins inside of them. I have 2 problems with this. one is that i wish i could put them all in one folder called waves instead of the 6 waveshell folders and second i wish i could remove some plugins.. for example i dont need Rverb mono and Rverb stereo or pitchshifter in 3 voices and 6 voices and mono and stereo, its too much i dont want to search through all this stuff.

is there a way to trim it in live, in soundforge i can do it just fine, i can move things around, delete them, make favorite folders.

thanks
-jeremy

Heya.

Go to the root folder for the VSTs (Lets say your using MAC and these are located in your LIBRARY/Audio Plugins (Blah Blah).

Delete those you do not want in this folder and rearrange the folder here.

Then run a (Plug-ins Search) in Ableton, so it refreshes your folder.

Tell me how that goes ^^

if you put them in a rack, you can save them in live devices folder, which you can arrange/rename... with the added bonus of being able to chain them together, map macros to parameters etc...

Thanks you So much,
I made Instrument Racks with each individual VSTi and Audio Effect Racks with each individual Plugin that I want to use with ableton. This means I dont have to scroll through lists and lists of stuff that I wouldn't even use within ableton. Since I use Sound Forge for audio editing, I dont need all the mastering and Xnoise type plugins to be listed in Ableton. Also the chaining capabilities within the rack are really dope.

Killmono- for most plugins editing the file tree in the vst menu could have been the easiest solution, but waves plugins are listed as 6 different shells with 10 to 20 plugins inside each shell, you cant take them out of the shell in the vst folder , you have to do it inside the programs you are using. i heard that his is beacuse waves are actually dx plugins inside a vst shell

thanks again

Also keep in mind that on Windows you can easily use shortcuts which will be picked up by Live.

So, for example, when I installed my N.I. stuff I told it to install all vst's in d:\program files\native instruments. My vst directory is in d:\ableton\vst, but this allowed me to keep more control over it.

I merely created a directory for it, linked the files I needed (obviously I have no need for a reaktor surround plugin in Live) and that's it. Not messing with the original files will also make sure that whenever you update your stuff at a later time you'll avoid possible errors about missing files.

Yeah, using shortcuts is the way to go!
However, I've experienced that some plugins do not get detected by Live if they are shortcuts.
