Default How to quickly organise all plugins by manufacturer?

So here`s question. Long time ago I worked with Nuendo and it was great in organising. Right now I have a large list of plugins and can`t find smth I need fast. And I don`t want creating folders and sort everything manually. Sorting by manufacturer seems to be the best way, causе many plugins are from the same manufacturer. So how can I do this?

When you open the FX window, you can create new folders on the left hand side...just name them as your manufacturers and drag your plugs from the main FX screen into there.

Before you do this, ask yourself a couple of questions....

How many delay VSTs do you have?
Who makes them?

If you are unable to answer both, consider sorting your plugins by what they actually do.

You can simply type a part of the plugin name and Reaper finds it. If you really want them organized in folders by manufacturer name, then simply do the following:
- create a folder with the name of the manufacturer
- type the name of the manufacturer and Reaper will find them
- select them all and drag them to the manufacturer folder you created. Done :-)

Myself, if I want a specific plugin, let's say MeldaProduction MStereoSpread, I simply type mst. If I want ReaComp, I type reac. Etc...

Well, I see)
Nuendo, come back! LOL
Thanx anyway! I wanted that process being automatic, but nothing can be good at everything. Besides I just don`t remember names of many plugins, only their UI)
I have about 15 delays but rarely use them, they are more just parts of different bundles) I like using pitch/delays instead)

I actually install my plugins to a VST folder with subfolders. Each folder has a category that maps the plugin type. I only use manufacturer in the circumstance that I use a large amount of their plugins or a pack.

I find this arrangement better than using the Reaper method or organisation.

Delay was the wrong example for me to choose, then....

I used to sort my plugins by manufacturer. Once I had a few hundred plugins, the arrangement didn't help me at all. I have no idea who made some of my favourite VSTs. I can't even spell 'Kjaerhus' without looking it up. I got into the bad habit of always using my favourites (which were often just the easiest ones to find) while some great plugins, perhaps better suited for some jobs, went neglected and forgotten.

Oh well.... your rig, your call....

"your rig, your call" means that Reaper is on your computer, so it's your decision on what the workflow should be.

Your rig - it's your computer, your REAPER, so
Your call - it's your choice to make, because you're the one who'll be using it.
