Well this was based on our common thinking but I am a bastard and I
forgot to credit you, sorry for that.

I agree. This guarantees that the number of categories remains
controlled and helps string reviews.

Actually, I did not think of having all audio filters in one page.

I tought of keeping the current global layout (a tree + a page).

On the "audio filter" page, we would have the list of audio filters that
we can check to enable them.

This audio filter page would have children nodes : the audio filter's

I think having everything on one page would be a real mess.

The concern that can appear with having one page for each filter is that
you need many clicks to reach your option ("Audio" -> "Audio filters" ->
"yourfilter" )... But at the moment, we already need 3 clicks.

Or maybe I simply did not understand your concern :)
