Digging down in Plug-in menu's in Logic Pro is tedious and takes you out of the creative flow. You need to dive into menu's and submenu's just trying to find the Plug-in you wanted. Wouldn't it be great to be able to just type the name of the Plug-in and have Logic insert it for you?
Unfortunately, Logic Pro doesn't allow for text-based Plug-in search. PlugSearch solves that problem once and for all.
How it works.
Activate the PlugSearch popover for any empty Audio FX, Instrument or MIDI FX slot with a single keystroke.
Start searching for any native or 3rd-party Plug-in, and select a Plug-in from the results.
Press enter or double click, and PlugSearch puts the Plug-in in the empty insert slot.
Do More Than Search.
Don't want that Plug-in? With a single keypress PlugSearch removes any Plug-in from an occupied insert slot.
Feeling lucky? Type a question mark and PlugSearch selects a random Plug-in for you. Yes, of course you can put a stereo delay on a sub boom kick!
Disable Plug-ins so they won't appear in your search results. Perfect for expired trials or UAD Plug-ins you don't own.
In A Nutshell.
PlugSearch does the hard work for you. Think of a Plug-in, type a few letters, and PlugSearch finds it for you. No more menu diving.
PlugSearch is a utility that lives in the Finder taskbar. It has a minimum system and memory load and adds Plug-in search functionallity to Logic Pro.
