Quick search access to plugins in Logic (like Ableton)?

Mon Apr 11, 2016 1:46 am

I'm sure this has been discussed, but whenever I search this, I only get people who are asking about why Logic can't find their plugins.

I'm asking if there is a search feature in Logic similar to Ableton, where you can just hit command-F (in Ableton) and type in, for example, "soundtoys" and it will pull up my soundtoys plugins for me to drag and drop onto the intended track?

i have already set up a quick access plugin folder, but switching between ableton and Logic, even having to navigate to the plugins through the inserts is a bit cumbersome.

i'm not lazy lol...just looking for efficiency.

thanks!

Here is a mockup I did back in June 2014

I'm assuming this feature has not been implemented yet. Does Apple listen to customer feedback about Logic? This seems like it should be relatively easy to implement but what do I know about software programming?

If you guys haven't done so already, please submit this feature to Apple directly: https://www.apple.com/feedback/logic-pro.html
