    UAD Plugin Mover - Updated July 9, 2013

    I don't get it... why do I need this? Not being snotty... just don't understand the benefits. Now if you told me I could organise the -display- of all plugs in Cubase? THAT would be something!

    Depending on how your host displays large lists of VST plugins, going into your powered plugins folder and trying to find a particular plugin could mean a lot of scrolling/hunting before you find the plugin you want. Using these folders will cause a sub-menu to appear which should in theory allow you to find the plugins faster.
    - Oh and UA: please get rid of the DSP-only requirement, lower your prices, make my UAD-1 work again, and create a system that allows for the reselling of plugins. I'll even settle for any three out of those four.

    You can also use the same subfolder names that Steinberg uses within their program's "local" Vstplugins folder and they'll get merged in with existing ones. To do this, make sure you delete the "Powered Plugins" name as the destination folder (should just say "NewPlugins=" in the ini). That way, the new folders end up in the root of the main VST folder rather than inside another one.

    Very useful Phil -Thanks!

    Yes guys thanks.

    The whole idea is to stop that HUGE list of plugins and break it up into manageable, viewable chunks.. I have been using this for a loooong time but only decided to release it to the public as a bit of a project. Part of doing that, means that the whole thing has to be customisable. That's why the ini file exists. You can choose pretty much any location, folder name and sub-folder names that you wish.



    I will post a screen shot in first post so you can see what I mean more clearly.

    Yes mate it will work with any app that uses VSTPlugins folder. All it does is move the plugins to sub folders on your HD.

    It's perfectly easy to do this manually but with all the UAD plugins it takes a long time. Once you have it set up in the ini file it's easy and fast and can be repeated any time.

    Just a quickie, if you are using this, don't forget to add the new plugins to the ini file (remove the line with 52=END first):

    Code:
    52=UAD EL7 FATSO Jr/Compressor
    53=UAD EL7 FATSO Sr/Compressor
    54=UAD EMT 250/Reverb
    55=UAD Neve 31102/EQ
    56=UAD Neve 31102SE/EQ
    57=END

    I just did this Phil, thank you. One thing I am wondering about however which drove me nuts about your little app. It mentioned it does the mono plugins as well, but you failed to mention that it will not do this if the mono plugins are in a separate directory. By default the installer for the plugins puts all mono plugins in a MONO folder. I assumed this would be fine since the installer did this and not me. Running your little app however consistently skipped the mono plugs. I must have ran it 3-4 times before I manually copied the mono plugs right into the directory containing all the stereo versions and finally it worked. Perhaps a small addition to the readme is in store to help with further confusion?

    BTW, it worked wonderfully with my automapped plugs however. Thanks a ton for this nifty little app.

    Hi there Cantankerous,

    Indeed that is my mistake. I don't actually use the mono plugins and it has been a long time since I installed them. I had completely forgotten that they get installed in a separate folder.

    I will update the read me and also add the new plugs to the ini file while I'm at it.

    Cheers,
