I am currently using a sequencer (HY-SeqCollection2 https://hy-plugins.com/product/hy-seqcollectionwinmac/) inside an instance of Unify hosted in Nuendo. The sequencer is designed to start and stop playing with the host transport (producing no MIDI output when the transport is stopped).

What I am trying to do here is have it play when I hold a note on my MIDI controller and stop when I let up (note-off).

I can get this behaviour when Nuendo is stopped and Unify is set to "Trigger: MIDI/Quick Stop".

Problem to solve: I want to keep this behaviour when I hit "play" in Nuendo (responding only to "note on" and "note off" instead of the Nuendo transport). 

I thought that logically, unchecking "follow host" would achieve this, but it doesn't. 

I tried many permutations of the "trigger" and "follow host" settings and did not find one that worked in the fashion as I describe here.

 

Is there a way to do what I am asking of it?

If Unify's Transport is set to "MIDI / Quick Stop", with "Follow Host" un-checked, it should work as you want.

If it does not, tracking down why could be difficult. I don't have either the HY sequencer plug-in or Nuendo.

Also, I'm not sure this is actually up to Unify to fix. If I understand correctly, you would like a third-party sequencer plug-in, which is designed to start and stop following its host's transport, to instead start and stop based on input MIDI that it receives. You might be further ahead asking HY about that.

Thanks for your help 🙂

 

It appears on my end that this feature of the Unify transport trigger may not be working as intended.

Here is a short video on that:

Thank you for the video. I've done some testing here, and I can verify that this is a bug in Unify 1.8. It's fixed in Unify 1.9, which will be available in the next few days.

I tried it with Studio One with the same results
