How to save plug-in settings in Pro Tools

After adjusting the plugin settings to your liking, you have two choices for how to save the settings of the plugin. If you want the settings to be saved to the root settings folder of the plugin, click on the Plug-In Settings button and select “Save Settings As”. Give your settings a recognizable name. The root settings directory for the specific plugin is selected by default. The benefit of saving the settings in the plug-in’s root settings folder is that they will then be available anytime you use the plugin, across any session.

If you want to save the settings for the session only, you need to create some directories in your session folder. In the main session folder, create a directory titled “Plug-In Settings”. In that folder, create a folder with the name of the plugin you are trying to save settings for. Inside that folder is where you will save session-specific plugin settings. (click on the Plug-In Settings button and select “Save Settings As”. Give your settings a recognizable name.) These settings will only be available when using that specific plugin in this specific session. The benefit  to this method  is that  the settings will be transfered with the session, and available to users of the session on other computer/Pro Tools systems.
