Introduced in the version 5 update, plug-in tagging allows the user to append their entire collection of plug-ins with an arbitrary amount of tags to make plug-ins easier to find across all of Mixbus’ interfaces.
The new Plug-in manager:
The new plug-in manager allows for plugins to be tagged, and searched via their tag, name, or creator (or a combination of all three) making it very quick to find plugins you need for your session. By default we take whatever the plugin reports as its category. However, for most plugin formats, these aren’t very useful.
To tag a plugin all you need to do is:
- Select it in the plugin in the plugin manager
- Erase it’s contents
- Replace it with whatever you want it to be searched by

Additionally, plug-ins that appear in the favorites pane will now be able to be sorted by tags:
And they will appear in a strip’s right click menu under plug-ins:
