PlugInGuru Unify 1.1.10 UPDATE

Unify is a TOTALLY UNIQUE Plug-In that combines over 50 plug-ins when installed, producing over 500 John Lehmkuhl designed patches with a powerful HOST plug-in that can load all of your Instruments, Audio Effects and MIDI Effects in a  flexible and fun environment! It also comes with 505 patches and over 3.5GB of samples from John’s 12 PlugInGuru sample-based libraries that were originally designed for Omnisphere 2.

Version 1.1 brings 2 new MIDI Effects to the family: MIDIBox and JitterBox. 4 new reverb audio effects are also added in this free update along with interface enhancements and a bunch of new capabilities! Seamless Play is one of the coolest things – you can now right+click on any patch and load it INTO your existing patch and it will do this with no audio glitch! You don’t really need playlists or a Live button when you can seamlessly load ANY Patch using ANY PlugIn at ANYTIME into Unify 1.1. It’s a complete game changer!

This update is recommended for all Unify users. It includes a number of new features, some of which are not yet documented in the online manual. Keep checking; the manual will be updated ASAP.

Version 1.1.10

  • Drag/drop to reorder layers:
    • Linked parameter paths will be re-numbered automatically.
  • Velocity-based fading for layer note-range bounds:
    • Key-range part of title strip does not extend under ops button
    • Active key range is always shown, and right-mouse can be used at any time
    • Double-clicking right mouse button (or left + Ctrl) resets whatever would be changed by a drag, depending on other modifier keys:
      • No modifier: reset to min or max
      • Option/Alt: reset fade region to zero width
      • Shift: reset fade curvature to zero
  • MIDI bank/patch selection based on user-edited “bank” text files:
    • Plain text files in MIDI Bank Files folder under main Unify data folder.
    • Files are named e.g. BB_SS.txt where BB is bank number 1-128 (MIDI CC#0 values 0-127) and SS is sub-bank number 1-128 (MIDI CC#32 values 0-127).
    • Blank lines and lines beginning with # sign are ignored (comments).
    • Active lines consist of a patch number (1-128) followed by the name of a patch (spelling must be exact) OR name of a patch file (ending in .unify or .upf.
  • PolyBox: New “Random” checkbox activates layers in random order, instead of strict round-robin.
  • MIDIBox: Output note-range defaults to C1-C6 instead of C-2 to G8.
  • Patch loading:
    • A patch-load request (by mouse click or MIDI) will be ignored if it occurs less than 500 milliseconds after the previous patch change.
    • This avoids multiple redundant patch loads due to accidental double-clicking, or rapid-fire MIDI events.
  • Sorted lists in patch browser: All lists in the patch browser (libraries, tags, etc.) are explicitly sorted.
    • In previous versions, lists were generated in the order the items appeared in the patch database, which was usually sorted alphabetically, but this was not guaranteed.
  • MIDI CC-assignments can be saved for embedded Unify instances only.
    • This allows e.g. MIDI CC messages generated by MIDI effects in the outer Unify to be linked to macro knobs in the embedded instance.
  • MIDI Monitor has new option to filter by MIDI channel:
    • Default setting is “ALL”.
    • Active key range is always shown, and right-mouse can be used at any time
    • Channels 1 through 16 may also be selected.
  • Copy/Paste plug-in state: special handling for embedded Unify instances.
    • If the plug-in is an embedded Unify VST instance, its state will be decoded before putting it onto the clipboard.
    • The instance can then be swapped for a built-in Unify instance, and the state pasted directly in.
    • This is to faciliate quick conversion of older patches built with the Unify VST, to use the newer built-in format.
  • Guru Sampler: now has a “reverse playback” option.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Layer-stack scroll position no longer resets when Unify window is resized.
    • MIDIBox: bar count, start bar number are retained after loading a new MIDI file, unless they are not valid for that file.
    • MIDI Monitor: Display updates when GUI is opened, Clear button resets relative event-times.
  • Bug fixes (partial list):
    • Previous Unify versions would crash if more than 1,000 layer presets were defined. This limit has been raised to 100,000.
    • Fixed bug which caused crashing when loading patches with Kontakt instances.
    • Numerous issues involving linked parameters.
    • Fixed bug which caused non-4/4 MIDI files to play incorrectly.
