Auganizer, a new Audio Unit management app, is now available for OS X. Auganizer lets you rename, reorder, organise and arrange your Audio Units the way you want to.
Here's what they say: "Until now, renaming and arranging your Audio Units in Logic, Ableton and Garageband has been impossible. The Audio Unit standard hasn't allowed for your own naming and organising conventions since it was released by Apple. Now Auganizer has made it possible to arrange plugins by group, sub group and custom name, for instance following Logic's native plugin naming scheme, you could use the top folder "Dynamics", sub-folder "Compressors" followed by the name you like to use to identify your plugin."
Auganizer has powerful filtering and search tools within the app so you can quickly find and edit the plugins you want to rename. You can select multiple plugins to rename them all into the same top, or sub group quickly and easily, useful for organising all your EQ or Compressors in one change.
To make identifying your plugins easier in the list Auganizer has OS X's native Cover Flow which loads up the GUI's of your plugins so you can easily be reminded of the more obscure ones as you organise. You can disable plugins for Logic X, work with 32-bit and 64-bit plugins, export and import your settings and best of all it works directly with Logic (versions 7 to X) Ableton and Garageband so there is no need to rescan your plugins each time you make changes, simply close and reopen your sequencer and any changes you've made will be visible.
You can find out more about Auganizer at auganizer.com and it is available now for $34.99.
