Here lately when loading Drum patches with a midibox using the Unify/Drum option it's still allowing the Note->Coarse to be active.

I've also had issues with ghost patches showing up and having to refresh the libraries multiple times to get them to disappear.

I've currently got 145 libraries and almost 40k patches. This is on my PC Windows 10. 1.9.1

One example please, so I can test?

A single refresh should be sufficient, unless there are extra copies of patches in folders where they don't belong. Using the right-click "show in Explorer" trick should help you locate duplicate copies, if there are any.

Note that the database-rebuild function doesn't check to see if patch files are actually in parent folders called "Patches". That's just a convention we established once we started creating libraries.

Finally got the ghost patch to disappear. I did check in the explorer and it wasn't showing a second patch. So I was worried I had accidentally renamed a patch with the patch name, but that worked itself out. I can never remember which does a full rebuild.

I was adding Drum patches from the Standard library. Each in a track with an embedded Unify. Ive attached a Jpg with a view of the pop out window of a track with all the drums in it showing their names on the track. This will be the 4th time I've rebuild the patch I've been working on. I could have sworn I had hit the "Update" button at some time to save it. But thankfully each time I rebuild it, I like the new version better. 😀

Thank you for the screenshot. I just built a similar patch, making sure to load the second, third, and fourth patches in "Unify/Drum" mode, and in every case, "Note->Coarse" was off in the MIDIBox instance in the embedded Unify instance, as it should be.

However, since the original "BPM Kick - 4 on the floor 5" patch was not loaded into an embedded Unify layer, its MIDIBox instance had "Note->Coarse" left on. This is probably because that patch was made back in 2020, before the "Note->Coarse" option was added in MIDIBox. You need to switch it off manually, unfortunately, ideally right after loading the patch and before playing any notes, which could otherwise result in sending an update to the Guru Sampler's coarse-pitch knob. (If the knob does get moved, just double-click it with the mouse to reset it to the center position.)
