Spitfire Labs & Albion One
LABS - I could find the VST3 location and Unify now shows this as being registered in the database. All of Unify's Instruments display and play fine but when I select "User Library" nothing shows except "USER Patch". Do I need further steps to have Unify show my Instruments in Spitfire LABS?
As for Albion One (orchestra), I cannot find any VST on that but it plays using Kontakt 6 free player so I can find the VST3 for Kontact but that does not display with the UNify Library either.
My apologies if I'm missing something basic here. I have read the Manual but none the wiser. Thank you for your time.
Unify is an amazing product.
Third-party presets/libraries don't magically show up in Unify. You need to register the plug-in, then open it and use that plug-in's own GUI to browse patches. If you find one you like, you can save a new Unify patch, e.g. to your User Library (which starts out with just that dummy "USER Patch").
@getdunne Thank you. I was able to create two patches for two of the instruments in Spitfire LABS. Now on to the Albion One challenge...
( I don't think Albion One can work as it requires Kontakt Player to work so no VST of its own)

You can register the Kontakt Player VST for use in Unify. See https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=scanning.
Albion one is working perfectly in unify (I have this library and it sounds great !) , but it's not a vst ! it's a kontakt library. and this library must be registered in the NI center, often you will not see it in kontakt.
Thank you for your posts. I have registered the Kontact Player 6.6.1 but do not see anything about Kontact or Albion in the Libraries list. Albion One is registered in my copy of Native Access. Any help will be appreciated as I realize there is something I don't understand and will also keep looking. I want to buy some new Kontact Related libraries on sale from Unify but I want to be sure they will work.

Which "Libraries list" are you referring to, Kontakt's or Unify's?
Only sample-libraries for Kontakt itself will appear in Kontakt's libraries list. Only patch-libraries made for Unify (completely different thing) will appear in Unify's libraries list.

I think you mean you would like to buy Kontakt libraries from PlugInGuru.com. They will ALL work in Unify, the same way they do in any DAW: you load an empty instance of Kontakt, then use Kontakt's own GUI to load the sample-library you want to play. If you save the resulting Unify patch, you can get that sound back more quickly later. (This is basically the same as saving a "project" in a DAW.)
If you were to do this for every single sound in the Kontakt library, naming every Unify patch the same as the corresponding Kontakt preset, and saving all your new Unify patches into a new Unify library with the same name as the Kontakt library, this would be what we call a "unified" library. I don't think anyone has ever yet done this for Albion.
