For those of you working on a Mac OS X with a big plug-in library there's now Auganizer. This app allows you to organise all your Audio Unit plug-ins however you want. This way you can come up with your own way of sorting them to find the ones you want to use in a production much faster.
Granted, this is a software that only is useful for those who do have lots of plug-ins and bundles. If you only have a couple of Audio Units, finding the one you want to use is not so difficult. However, there are plenty of music producers out there who practically collect all plug-ins that are released. And if you have dozens or even hundreds or Audio Units, the way they're natively organised by manufacturer or developer seems rather impractical and downright unmusical. Auganizer offers a simple way out of this dilemma.
