Hi there,

The following drivel is what I want to accomplish but I don't know if it's super easy, and I just can't find out how to do it, or it's not possible at all and in that case I'll add a feature request... but knowing me it's probably super easy and I'm an idiot! 🙂 Here we go...

There are a zillion preset patches right? Say I want to apply a midi effect, in my case Obelisk (my midi chord fixer of choice) to ALL layers in a patch super quickly.... how? What I'm having to do right now is add Obelisk to layer one, then I load up my own Obelisk preset file, then right click & copy that plug in state, go to layer two, add it again, paste the plug in state, etc etc etc. No big deal BUT some of the patches have quite a few layers built in so it takes ages, especially if I'm only really auditioning presets, have I explained that well enough?

In a nutshell, is there some method (right now) of telling Unify... after loading a patch, apply this MIDI Effect (in my case Obelisk) to all INST Layers? Or if not automatically, at least if I add it to one layer THEN how can I easily copy that MIDI Effect & state to all the other layers in one go?

If I use my DAW, Logic Pro X, then I can just add Obelisk first on a separate midi FX input and Unify on a software instrument layer and it's easy peasy... but I like to use Unify as a standalone 90% of the time that's why I'm asking.

Thank you.

  1. Load empty patch
  2. Add Midi Layer
  3. Insert your MIDI Fx
  4. On the Instrument Layer replace the Sine Synth with the Unify: "Swap: Unify Standard -> Instruments -> Unify"
  5. Set the Instrument Layer MIDI Input to your MIDI Layer as shown on the picture
  6. Use "INST 1 | Unify" to browse your patches. Bypass MIDI Fx if needed.

You Sir, are a genius! And I've learned more functionality that I never knew about before. Thanks a million, really appreciate it, very happy boy here 🙂

Also, this can be simplified by adding MIDI Fx directly to the Instrument Layer
