    Removing unpurchasing plugins.

    This huge list of demo software looks unprofessional?

    http://snag.gy/A7mLC.jpg

    It irritates the hell out of me. So much that I avoid installing your software and using your plugins until I'm desperate. Which ones have I got a license for? I don't actually know without referring to my e-mail or hunting through the list.

    It's shit.

    How about an option to move the demo versions to another folder? I know it's possible to work around the problem by moving files around, but that's hardly the right experience.

    Perhaps it sells plugins? But it does it at the expense of your brand. Fix it.

    Thank you.

    PS. Obviously that subject should have been 'Removing Unpurchased Plugins' but we all have flaws

    I will agree, it is a bit annoying this endless list, and I do configure my set up with a "DEMO/Not Bought" folder, but that is all OK until there is a new update, and then of course everything goes back to one folder, so it all has to be reorganized again after the update.

    and why does UA call their install folder "Powered Plugins"? I always rename it UAD, why don't UA name their own plugs-in folder "UAD".


    It is only a minor gripe, but it is always there though.
    equipment list:- more than I need
    plug in list:- definitely more than I need

    i disabled the standard plugin directoy in my daw (cubase) and have set my own vst plugins folder for it
    that way i have a perfect control which plugins show up a

    when i updated the UAD Firmware, all the plugins get installed into the standard plugins folder which are inactive, then i just copy the few updated plugins into my custom folder and be done with it

    i have also made some folders like
    UAD Reverbs
    UAD Compressors
    UAD etc

    to have a better overview and sortation in my daws plugin menu

    I would love to do the same but I can't figure out how to make the default Powered Plugins folder inactive? It must be easy and I'm thinking to difficult, but I couldn't find it. Perhaps when I try again I will figure it out.

    A show/hide unauthorized plugins option has been high on the list of requests for a while.

    No argument from me about keeping the pressure up with more posts like this! I love being able to demo the plugins, and it's definitely sold me on some. But sometimes I just wan to work. We need a simple way to show/hide them from the Apollo Console (where it actually can cause errors to move them to a different folder) and an easy way to move them in/out of the DAW plugin folders. It's the least UAD could do since we have to install them all each time and update comes along.

    Yup. Using Live 9 here. I create a folder with all my purchase plugins and point live to it. That was a real headache at first before this work around.

    Softube has a great solution for this problem.
    A simple app that installs and uninstalls desired plugins. Very effective, clean and the best solution.
    Why don't Uad use a sistem like that?

    This is annoying and wouldn't take long for UA to implement.

    Easy to do yourself if you use Audio Units. Navigate to your AU folder (Macintosh HD->Library->Audio->Plugins->Components), I make a folder in it called _unauthorized (starting with the _ so it stays at the top of the list alphabetically). Then just move anything you don't want to show up everywhere into the unauthorized folder. Simple as that. Might also work for VST and the like, I'm not sure if they scan subfolders or not. You just have to remember to add back plugins when you want to demo them or you have purchased them
