Hi Friends,

I just downloaded the Unify 1.10 update on my sample development machine, which still runs on MacOS 10.11 El Capitan, mainly to maintain support for old tools like REDMATICA.

Apparently the updated App suddenly requires OS 10.13 which prevents me from working. This may be a simple oversight since the documentation still lists OS 10.9 as the oldest supported version.

I would love to use the new features as I work from this machine. It would be a big hassle to have to jump between computers as I make patches.

Would you kindly look into it.

Best Regards!

Unfortunately, Apple's recent versions of Xcode (C++ development IDE tool) no longer support targeting MacOS versions earlier than 10.13. I kept up support for systems back to 10.9 for as long as I could, but I can't do it anymore.

I must update the documentation. Can you give me a link to where it still says 10.9, so I can fix it? I will update the official Change List right away.

If you need to revert to Unify 1.9.1, you can find the updater here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dhy64p9skb9yfdx/MAC_Update_Unify_1.9.1.zip?dl=0

However, you will probably need to remove the Unify app and plug-ins manually, because the installer is not set up to replace newer versions. See this page in the Unify manual, and look for the heading 2. Remove the Unify app and plug-ins. You'll need to remove all five items listed, then run the Unify 1.9.1 installer. You will not need to use the included .guru file.

Hi Shane,

 

Thank you for responding so swiftly.

Unfortunately, Apple's recent versions of Xcode (C++ development IDE tool) no longer support targeting MacOS versions earlier than 10.13.

Complicates things, but we'll just have to live with it then.☹️

 

If you need to revert to Unify 1.9.1, you can find the updater here:

 

I already managed to restore 1.9.1 using the full installer, the one that came with my initial download, which was 1.9.1.

 

Can you give me a link to where it still says 10.9, so I can fix it?

 

Sure, if you look here: 

removed link

You'll find 10.9 specified under both the Contents and Details tabs. (under the big plug logo)

 

Before I close this, I was wondering if you could consider adding the following feature:

I can generally describe it as a Track Focused listening mode, a sort of feathered alternative to a hard Solo function. It would be engaged when users click on the Solo button using predetermined modifiers. Once activated, it would lower the volume of all the other tracks by a user specified amount (In the settings) while either maintaining or boosting the target track's volume depending on the modifier being used.

Something like this would be highly instrumental when programming multilayered patches, especially BPM and MIDIBox Multies which need to sync rhythmically and melodically. Being able to "zoom" into one track while retaining a sense of the others in the background would be highly useful to the way I design. I suspect John would like it too, from what I've seen in his videos.

I hope it's something you would be able to consider if it's not a taxing endeavor.

Since this is my first time here, I sincerely want to thank you and John for giving us this wonderful tool.

Wishing you all the best!

Your link got deleted automatically by our forum software. Please retry, adding spaces e.g. blah . blah . com / blah . html

The layer focus idea is VERY interesting, thank you. I will put that one straight onto the to-do list.

Here's the link again as specified:

www. pluginguru. com /products /unify-standard /

Or you can just log into the main Unify section at the PluginGuru website

You'll find 10.9 specified under both the Contents and Details tabs. (under the big plug logo)
