I’m confused and need some guidance. I’m trying to organize my VST’s and I’m going mad!! I’m try to be as to the point as I can. (BTW, I’m on a mac if it matters)
1. Is there a way in cubase to tell it to ignore VST2 plugins if VST3 are available?
I’m personally tied of having duplicate plugins in my cubase plugins list, especially since I only use the VST3 plugins anyway. How do I get the VST2 plugins to stop showing up in cubase? Do I need manually remove them from my VST2 folder, or is there a way to tell Cubase to not load specific plugins?
2. What is the deal with subfolders?
It seems some plugins are automatically put into folders by category if you have that option selected. So for example, some of my plugings automatically show up in a “delay” subfolder for example, while some delay plugins do not and just appear by name in the list. Is there some way to organize all my delay plugins into this delay folder?
3. Is the answer for plugin organization to create your own subfolders to store the .vst?
For example, I want all my compressors into a “compressors” folder, so they show up under this subfolder in Cubase. So I was thinking of going into my plugins -> VST folder and creating a “compressors” folder, and then manually moving all my compressor .vst into this folder. First off, is it ok to organize my VSTs into subfolders in the first place? Or will I run into problems (for example I’m also a bit worried when I update plugins, as for example UAD updates all their plugins with every software update, and I’m assuming wouldn’t install them into my custom subfolders.) Secondly is this the best way to organize your plugins in Cubase, or is there another way?
All I have to say is THANK GOD cubase has a search feature when loading plugins, as 90% of the time I know what I want, type a few letters and load it. However on the times when I what to try out different “distortion” plugins for example, I would like to see all my available distortion plugins in a single folder. It seems I have to manually create these subfolders in order to achieve this. If this is not true, PLEASE let me know, as I’m simply looking for the best way to organize my plugins in Cubase.
So if you’ve had any success and/or any problems PLEASE share them. I would really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance!
