Feature Request:
A "Global" presets directory for Instrument and Effects that is built [i]automatically[/i] from the directories of all instruments/presets in the database.

Component Feature Request
These "Global" folders should be displayed in the "Subfolder" drop down menu in the "Store Preset" dialogue box

Reason (aka Why Bother?):
There is an emergent school of thought in audio production that it is more efficient to store your presets and samples based on what they are utilized for or what they do/sound like, rather than what program you made them in or where you purchased them.

Our current ability to find assets this way relies on searching for keywords in the filename or tags. Tags cannot be easily added to user-created presets and samples yet (that are not part of a soundset).
