Did fresh install of Unify 1.1.2. On closer inspection of the PlugInGuru Unify VST folder there was no PG-8X folder. Luckily, I had a copy of the PG-8X folder. Was the PG-8X vst package left out of Unify 1.1.2 installation? Also, BlueARP is still a previous version.

Yes it is a recent decision, due to incompatibility issue of PG-8X and new macOS. You may still able to install it individually though.

PG-8X cannot be notarized for use on MacOS. Attempts to reach the developer have failed. Unless we can reach him, we have to consider PG-8X as "no longer supported", and thus we can no longer support it ourselves.

Of course you can install and use it yourself, but there is no guarantee it will work after future OS updates.

The BlueARP version should be v2.3.1. Which version are you seeing, and are you on Mac or Windows?

Unify 1.1.2 within its plugin manager that BlueARP is 2.2.0. I replaced Unify's 1.1.2 BlueARP 2.2.0 with BlueARP 2.3.1. Also, PG-8X appears as a built-in Unify VST instrument along with presets after installation. I've never had an issue with PG-8X but had crashing issues with mda instruments. I don't need PG-8X. I still have database issues for both User lists and patches. Overall, Unify is much more stable and better optimized for system resources. During the next week I'm going to test Unify's features and database handling and will report any issues.

The version numbers Unify shows in the Known Plugins list may be out-of-date; it's read from a file, not actively updated from the plug-in. I'm pretty sure the actual BlueARP VST is v2.3.1.

Thank you for your continued help and feedback.

PG-8X was updated in august 2020. So maybe it would work on MacOS now

When we bundle a third-party plug-in with Unify, it effectively becomes part of our product, and Unify therefore becomes dependent upon it. We can't take a risk with plug-ins we don't control.

You're perfectly free to useĀ PG-8X or any other third-party plug-in with Unify.
