Gotta love those blue colors on blue, the cluttered word bubbles and the mini pictures
I'm glad the Reaper dev doesn't spend time on doing something like this but actually improves the features and options inside the DAW.
Used Reaper for editing work but switched to ProTools because I enjoy mixing in there much more. Also some of my plugins just didn't behave as they should inside Reaper (non updating editors, non working edit fields, resizing issues, ...). The support of those told me Reaper does something unusual. Don't know how it is now.
(See previous my edited post you quoted)
If you love white backgrounds (or any particular shade of the spectrum) you can have that as a background to match, blue on blue is optional, and you're not just limited to gallery mode either, you can have vertical stacked images and text as before and entirely text stack based as well, all at a click of a button.
The advantages of images are that you don't need to be precise in your selection with the mouse, images are faster to recognise from colour and form and it's super fast to select and drag them out.
Studio One goes deeper with filtering plugins from view in the browser, not just in searching but also in removing them from view and besides setting up favourites, and setting up custom folder search paths for your content as well in the browser. Currently it's not possible to detach the browser in Studio One, but I've never found that to be a problem as other areas provide access to the plugins from dropdowns. Other than that, it's a faster, clearer and visually more attractive browser that's easy to use. Stineberg even went to the effort to try and copy it...
Oh, and I should add that, the larger you scale your plugins that you capture, the larger they are in the browser, there are practical limits to that however.
