There is something about walking into a room and knowing exactly where plug-ins are located rather than having them sorted at the whim of the user.
I personally would trust the sorting of the studio admins more than any sorting by any vendor. I don’t think any pro colleage would sort the ‘dynamics’ under ‘tools’, I think the given menu is a very clear one (except this ‘filter’/‘eq’ diff…), so that any of my studio users should be able to do a proper sorting, which I could work with.
And, btw, using Nuendo in a multiroom-fac could also lead into different prefs, different keystrokes, different color-scheme, etc in every room, which could also be very frustrating, if there is no professional handling.
Look at my example: I now have the 6 VST3-iZotope plugins always on top of the plugin-menu, very confusing, and no chance for any solution…
I would wish the option to sort by a) vendor-name, b) VST3embedded-type, d) user-definition
