Sonar plugin utility: MenuMagic - Cyber Week Sale

MenuMagic is the plug-in management tool specially designed to work with Sonar.
Its powerful tool set enables you to analyze, fix issues and organize your plug-ins (VST, VST3, DX, 32-bit, 64-bit) into menus quickly and easily.
 
MenuMagic has been supporting Sonar since Sonar 6 (was in beta during Sonar 5) and supports Sonar 2015 (all flavors).
 
If you are asking Why does Sonar need a plug-in manager tool? or doesn't freebie XYZ do the same thing? then you should check out MenuMagic's currently implemented features
 
Now for a limited time you can pickup MenuMagic for only $19.99!
and it comes with a 15 day money back guarantee. Click here for more information.
 
Buy now and you will receive the latest version of MenuMagic, access to beta versions and receive a free upgrade to version 2 when it is released.
More info on MenuMagic is available on our KVRaudio forum
 
Peace out, 
...Steven
 
Note - for purposes of full disclosure MenuMagic was created by my company AgitatedState.
I created the program because it was something that I needed for my use with Sonar.
(sorry about not including this info on initial post, wasn't thinking that this post might be taken as an unaffiliated endorsement)

Amazed I've not heard about this before considering how long you've been working on it.

Other MenuMagic info & resources
Here's a couple a screen shots in case you don't want to check out the links



 
Not going to post any more screen shots (I've got lots) because I don't want to be accused of abusing the forum's CoC. 
 
Edit:
Just to be clear MenuMagic does not work inside Sonar - it's a separate application.
After doing your name fixes and building the menus you then 'Save the Layout" (under the Menu Creation tab) to whatever installed version of Sonar you have in mind to any or all areas within Sonar (SynthRack, TrackAudioEffects, etc.).
Pages 4 & 5 of the PDF run you through a quick walk through of the process.

It's been mentioned here and there on the Cake forums but (as far as I know) not recently.
Occasionally one of my customers will pipe in on a plug-in manager thread and make a recommendation but they're not my salesmen and I never was much of a promoter.
Prior to Cake having the Deals and Software forums I couldn't say too much for fear of getting banned.  Also due to some issues on the home-front I've been pretty quite lately.
 
Many people back then didn't see the need for better plug-in management tools and many still don't. 
It wasn't that long ago, just a couple of years ago actually, where if you mentioned that you had a large number of plugins you were often accused of nefarious behavior or the discussion went off in a tangent (no one needs XXX number of plugins! Must be a pirate!) .
 
Anyway I think times have changed and my personal situation has improved or at least changed, so I'm back.

I ordered it today.
 
It should help me with my 1780 plugs.
 
Granted that count includes VST2/VST3 dups as well as Stero/Mono dups. It's probably about 1300.

Re: Sonar plugin utility: MenuMagic - Cyber Monday Sale 2015/11/30 13:22:53 (permalink)
I've decided that for the most part I "collect" plugs. AFAICR I have no more than 5 free plugs.
 
My mother in law collects elephant figurines. I'm pretty sure that she does not go through the house each and every day and look at each figurine.
 
I'm that way with plugs. I may not use them all each and every project (whew, I just had an image of what that projects would look and sound like), but I know they are there.

Just found this thread - and bought it hopefully for the $15 that was offered and authorized from paypal. This looks like an answer to prayers so to speak. Thank You! Can't wait to put it to good use!
