Anyone else report issues with the stand alone version of Unify 1.1.3 where the midi keyboard notes are not detected? I press a key and no midi key press messages are being recognized.

When I open the soft keyboard on the screen and press a note there, Unify will play the notes.

Under settings, I have all active midi inputs checked. (See attachment - first screen capture is showing my midi settings on the settings window, second screen capture shows the virtual keyboard playing notes successfully).

I was successful in using other stand alone applications like Kontakt, AAS player. These apps recognized the midi key press.

I pressed midi panic to see if that would reset something.

Also, the plugin version of Unify 1.1.3 works fine within Logic Pro X.

I just can't get the keyboard to work in stand alone version.

Any suggestions? Is there some setting that I need to adjust?

Thank you.

 
 
UPDATE #1:
Checking the boxes and restarting Unify stand alone did the trick. Thanks Shane!

After checking the checkbox to enable your controller, quit and re-start Unify stand-alone, and it should be working.

You guys really need a Quick Start .pdf on plugins & midi setup. We know the settings are there someplace. Also for those of us who are familiar with your libraries and have only heard about Unify itself, you might offer a short description of how the Unified libraries work. It took me a few days but now I understand. Other folks with less experience fiddling with DAW's might just give up. Definitely worth the $79 now that I understand what you're doing.

Did you check the manual? https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=scanning

Also for those of us who are familiar with your libraries and have only heard about Unify itself, you might offer a short description of how the Unified libraries work.

From the main Unify page at https://www.pluginguru.com/products/unify-standard/:

UNIFIED Libraries – a Unified Library is where we save out each factory patch from a Plug-In in Unify format.

Maybe we need to do a better job of telling people where to find information like this? Help me out; I'm not sure exactly what the problem is.

@getdunne The advantage of a QuickStart is it’s usually a single page which features things a newbie might miss in a manual. I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I still needed a hand.

Got it, thank you. I agree a short PDF should be included with the Demo. I've passed this on to John Lehmkuhl and we will discuss.

@getdunne A simple request, include a file called Quick Start with the basic setup.

The manual is for detailed instructions and often you need to know what you’re looking for to find it.

I’d never heard of your company before last Sunday. From what I can tell you’re known for making plugins and you’re using that experience to make a shell with low overhead that allows multiple plugins to work together. Cool. I’d say don’t assume users know anything about your product.
