For those of us (maybe it's only me) who rely on presets a great deal, it would be very helpful to have some short tutorial videos about the Unify effects that have no presets. For me, it's kinda just fiddle with the knobs until I get something close to what I want. It would be great to have one of Skippy's great videos about settings and what the knobs do.

I agree tutorial videos are a great idea, but please note all built-in effects are documented in the Unify manual: https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=bundled-plugins

They are documented, but in a way that is for someone that already knows how the plugins work at a basic level. Take delays for instance. How do I make a ping-pong delay with 1/4 notes that follows the tempo in the DAW? That kind of question is not clearly answered in the docs for someone that does not already know the purpose of the knobs. They are clearly labeled, and the docs explain clearly what they are for, but not how to use them for an end purpose.

A few examples of how to get THIS RESULT would go a long way, where THIS RESULT is a commonly found preset in other delay plugins.

I've been there as a programmer. I write docs, but there are assumptions that I understand, and many end users do not. When I look at docs for a new programming language, which I've done numerous times, it is the examples that help far more than the technical description of a particular construct.

When John does his weekly videos, he goes through using the effects plugs, but a slower paced tutorial about how to do specific things with them would be amazingly helpful.

I have been making music with DAWs for over 20 years, but it's still somewhat of a mystery to me as to how to use the knobs to get the effects I want. However, I have been able to get exactly what I want using presets, and adjusting them to fine tune the results.

Frankly, I have numerous effects plugins that do have presets that I could use, but I would like to understand how to use the built in effects in Unify as I am using it more and more in my projects. And in order to make UniSCREAM patches, I must use the Unify ones. 😉

What you and John are doing with Unify is pure genius. I'm not going to speak for anyone else, but for me at least, twiddling knobs is new. I've learned a lot since getting Unify and am willing to learn more, but I just need some direction. If Unify is meant only for people that do understand twiddling knobs, then none of this is probably necessary, and I will be content using its patches developed by others and combining them in new and exiting ways.

FWIW, I have watched every Unify video, and all of the Livestreams since Unify came out, some more than once, and have learned a tremendous amount. After watching the one from last Saturday, I was able to edit sounds to make changes that made them more to my liking, using the parameters that John displayed while he was editing certain sounds. Like changing the attack, and the starting point in the sample for instance.

I'm not looking for long tutorials that explain every nuance. Just very short ones that explain concepts.

Great suggestion - I will make some videos like this after 1.2 comes out.... Thank you.

Great! Thanks. I am anxiously awaiting the release of 1.2. Can't wait to use the orchestral library.
