Multi-MIDI Channel Outputs in Ableton Live?

Hello!

I found out about UNIFY from a comment in this YouTube video, and I am really grateful for that!

But I am overwhelmed with all the options in UNIFY and I cannot figure out how I could use it with InstaComposer from W.A. Production, in a similar way as what is explained in the above-mentioned video.

I have read the part mentioning InstaComposer in the Unify Manual (Latched MIDI playback 1: Third-party MIDI plug-ins), but that does not clarify how to get Multi-MIDI channel outputs to Ableton Live.

Can someone please point me to a video or a place in the  Unify Manual that would explain this to a newbie like me?

The current version of Unify does not have any MIDI outputs. You can use InstaComposer to generate MIDI to send to other plug-ins inside Unify, but there is currently no way to send the generated MIDI out to Ableton Live.

@getdunne That is what I thought, so thanks for clarifying that! 

I still need to find some time to sit down and study how to do that, but any hints on where I could start (reading or video) would be appreciated.

Cheers!

@sa11e

MIDI routing is very basic to Unify's design. I'd suggest you start by reading these pages in the online manual:

You need to think in terms of putting one instance of Unify onto one track in your DAW, and then loading all the plug-ins you need to use to create that track's audio, into that Unify instance, and do all MIDI/audio routing among those plug-ins inside Unify. It may take a while to get used to this new way of thinking, but once you do, it will quickly become second nature.

Also have a look at this recent YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJhsqeWY94M

@getdunne Thank you so much! I can't wait to get working on this! 

And thanks to everyone who has been a part of developing Unify! 😊
