Author: Technoir  
Description: Shortcut Buddy adds the ability to quickly launch Ableton plugins, VST’s/AU’s, and effect racks with just a key command or midi mapping! It greatly expedites workflow by allowing frequently used plugins to be opened with just a single press of a button.


- Up to 16 plugins can be mapped to launch.

- Save with your default template to always have launch macros enabled.

-Now works on Windows and Mac.

To Use:

Save any plugin in an Audio Effect Rack and save it. Drag that file from the Ableton Browser onto Shortcut Buddy to activate the launching of that plugin.

NOTE: Dragging an Ableton plugin or VST without grouping it and saving it first will not work.

Very cool! Price seems a little steep, but it does seem like it'd be pretty useful.

I'd imagine the 16 buttons can be key-mapped and/or midi-mapped?
Would be cool to have a 64 button grid version to use a dedicated launchpad for and actual launch pad. :)

I think 12$ is perfectly fair, love this concept, could you add 64 keys? I'd Gladly pay 20
