it would be great if plugin presets could be sorted to folders, separately from the plugin itself. Example, I have Soundtoys rack, and all presets are under this plugin in browser (I have folder with all racks-soundtoys,waves etc.)...but I would like to sort them out independent form the plugin, some of the presets would be in the category "distortion", some in "modulation" ...

If I understand you correctly, you want the Browser > Effects > Folder view to allow for you to create a custom Folder called, for example, "Distortion Custom", and in there, you'd want to move, for example, the following presets ONLY (rather than the entire plugins):

SoundToys > Decapitator > Guitar > Beefy G 2

SoundToys > Decapitator > User > Awesome Distortion

PreSonus > RedlightDist > Big Meanie

Is that what you're suggesting ? And of course, you want to be able to achieve this right inside the Browser in S1, rather than having to navigate to the "presets" and "plugins" folders inside your computer's and/or user's hard drive (copy/paste, move presets around these folders, etc.)—is that all correct ?

something like that


so I want to sort the presets independent from the plugin itself, I want to have "Decapitator" preset with the rest of the distortion/saturation plugins, but I want to keep Effect rack plugin inside "Channel" folder
