I had a problem with Unify using an HG Fortune vst called Protoplasm. I am not too concerned about this, but was wondering if I can get any insight into its cause.

With all three DAWs (Sonar, Studio One, Reaper) if I load Protoplasm alone, in the wrapper around the window I can see a dropdown to select presets and to save my own created presets.

When I use Unify, the Unify window shows the wrapper for Unify, but when Protoplasm is placed in an instrument layer and the window opens, there is no way wrapper visible. This means I can't select any of the presets  or save any of my own creations.

I assume the wrapper is being provided by the DAW and no matter what is occurring in Unify, the DAW only sees Unify as a single vst.

Almost every vst I have that has presets and ways to save user presets provide an internal method to load and save so this is not a problem.

 

Just wondering if this will be a limitation in Unify although, as I stated, I am not much concerned if it is.

Here is the same vst in Unify within Sonar. Note the top bar is missing for preset selection and save.

@larry-ludwick

The top bar you are seeing in Sonar is added by Sonar; it's not part of the VST's GUI.

In Unify, at least some of the functions you're looking for are available on the operations menu (concentric-circles icon) for the plug-ins. You can select any of the available "programs" (presets in currently-selected bank), and also load bank (FXB) and preset (FXP) files.

We don't yet have functions to save FXB/FXP files, but I could probably add them.

These functions apply ONLY to older VSTs. Newer ones no longer operate this way.

@getdunne Thanks that is very nice. Being able to change the programs in this manner or load presets/banks is great. Yes, adding a save would be nice feature, but since it effects so few of the instruments I or most anyone else would use, probably something for the distant future. Thanks for the great tip, I did not even think that Unify had access to the list of presets in that manner.
