Compiling a New Effects Collection

You can create a new collection of effects or VST instruments for use in the plug-in selectors.


A number of effect plug-ins is correctly installed on your computer, and these plug-ins are listed on the VST Effects tab of the Plug-in Manager window.


  1. In the Plug-in Manager window, click New Collection and do one of the following:
    • To create a new collection based on the list of all effects, select Add All Plug-ins.

    • To create a new collection based on the current collection, select Copy Current Collection.

  2. Enter a name for the new collection and click OK.
  3. Drag items from the list of all effects and drop them to the new collection. A line indicates the drop position.
    • Click New Folder to create folders and place items directly in them.

    • You can drag items to new positions within the collection.

    • Drag items from the collection list to the list of all plug-ins to delete them, or select items and click Delete.


The new collection is saved automatically and made available in the plug-in selectors.

The procedure is the same for compiling collections of VST instruments.
