Pro Tools RTAS Plugins - Folder Names

Is it possible to change the plugin folder names in pro tools, or create you own? Has anybody ever done it?

I just think it would be so useful if, for example, I could make a folder called "Bass", and then put my go to plugins for bass guitar in that folder. Or one called vocals, etc...

Also, instead of moving plugins to the unused folder, I could make a folder called "rarely used" and throw all the plugins in there that I don't use very often. I get tired of searching through plugin folders to find specific plugins. It would be much easier to just find the one I'm looking for, quickly.

A feature like this would definitely save me time, and I assume others as well.

If I'm not mistaken, you can make your own plugin folders in wavelab, and maybe even nuendo and cubase too.

Also, is it possible to move plugins from one folder to another? A few of my plugins show up in "Other", and I would prefer them to be in one of the other categories

I don't think it is possible at this time to do so, though it would be a very useful tool.

They could incorporate it into the Digibase Browser or just recognise it from Finder or Windows Explorer.

Plugins allow you to make folders for your settings alongside their defaults, not quite the same but still a little useful.

Understand this thread is 2 1/2 years old.

However, in that time; has Avid provided support for this?

This is one reason I prefer Reaper.
