price & release date subject to change without notice

The Ultimate DAW Plugin Manager (UDPM) simply allows you to control what Plugins are loaded when your DAW software starts. Easily disable or remove incompatible, or malfunctioning 3rd party plugins. Configure sets of Plugins as presets and only load the plugins you plan to use for task at hand. The Ultimate DAW Plugin Manager can be used as a AAX Plugin Manager, AU Plugin Manager, MAS Plugin Manager, RTAS Plugin Manager, VST Plugin Manager, VST3 Plugin Manager,  Waves Plugin Manager, and if your familiar with file extensions UDPM can act as any OS X Plugin Manager you require. 

The Ultimate DAW Plugin Manager works like a plugin switcher, UDPM switches plugin(s) "On" or "Off" before you launch your DAW, or NLE software.
