Feature Suggestion: Vst Instrument Grouping

Hey guys,

I would like to recommend a feature I have been missing for quite a while now. It’s kinda easy to do, I think.

It’s grouping of VST instruments. When I open my instrument list I get tons of stuff listed. I’m just the try-out free VST guy, you know.

So it would be wonderful if I was able to group instruments according to my own definitions, like “pads”, “drums” or so. Ultimately I don’t mind the manufacturer of the plugin.

I hope this hasn’t been suggested yet.

Best regards

Group - using renaming for now, right click on instrument and put description in front of the instrument. Then searching on description auto sorts them in the list.

This feature exists already for quite a while and it also has been asked for a few times.
You can group VST’s to your liking like this:

To define own categories, simply add one: “pluginvendorname: pluginname” becomes “mycategory: pluginvendorname: pluginname”

Can you explain me how to do this? the link is broken.
