With all due respect [and heartfelt thanks] to the makers of the plugins, I don't understand this sorting by dev/company. If I have in mind a tool to do a particular thing, I only need the name of the dll not when it was born and who fathered it. So if I were to organize, it would be by my own defined categories.
There are more and more plug-ins that defy categorization because they either function as several categories or are in themselves "suites" (like T-Racks, or the iZotope ones).
That's why I choose to have builders folders, and organize that way. It's easy for me to remember if a plug-in I want was made by U-He, or iZotope or IK Multimedia, therefore, it's just a matter of go to that folder, and I have just a small bunch of options to choose from.
However, I noticed that, on the Mac, some react bad to this (eg - Nativwe Instruments and Arturia are two companies which VSTs I can't put in sub-folders (they crash if I dod that).
I think it's because, somehow, the VST and the AU plug-ins are interconnected.
