Would be good if it was possible to add more than one/custom VST paths in Bidule Mac please
Hi we believe the right decision from Apple was to centralize/standardize this folder so that we did not have to mess with multiple paths, merging them, figuring out which are dupes, which is the latest version etc. I guess I need good reasons to believe it is useful.

The problem is I have separated out all my older VST32 plugins because most of them (being so old and no longer updated) cause instability in modern hosts. Bidule is the only host I have reliable enough to still be able to load things like Hartman Neuron VST for example, but ironically it's also the only host that I can't point to my new custom VST32 plugin folder!

Also I actually have all my other hosts pointing to a folder of symlinks to plugins rather than the actual plugins, means I can organise them all how I want and also exclude plugins from certian hosts if they are incompatible.

The Bidule 32bit builds will disappear in the near future, so that argument would not apply, sorry.
