It is possible to use in line and send FX through Unify?  I was curious how I can port Gatekeepers presets to Unify.  Thx.

Audio input capability is coming soon, but is not available at the moment.

@getdunne Awesome!  I am looing forward to it.  Even just using the favorite system, or writing notes is welcome.  Plus the million other possibilities.

@topaz No update just yet, sorry. My top priority is to get the next Unify update out, probably within the next very few weeks. First version is with the beta testers right now.

Any chance of setting up an effects chain in Unify, and saving that as an FX preset that I can use on a bus?  TY. 🙂

You can save any layer configuration as a Layer Preset, but it will only restore to that same type of layer. I think what you're asking is, can you set up an effects chain on an INST layer, and later load that chain onto an AUX or MASTER layer.

The short answer is no, but I'll look into allowing this in the near future; it's a good idea.

The longer answer is yes, but only if you happen to be able to edit XML files manually. I'm attaching an INST layer preset (which gets saved into Presets/Layer Presets/Instrument Layers under the main Unify data folder) and a new AUX/MASTER layer preset containing only the FX chain (which you would put into Presets/Layer Presets/Audio Layers). The trick is to save an empty AUX-layer preset, then copy just the <AudioInserts> tag out of the original INST preset into the Audio preset.

I realize the above might be overwhelming; my apologies. I'm only including these details in the answer on the off chance that you're comfortable with this kind of thing, and for the benefit on later readers who may be comfortable with it.

@getdunne awesome thanks!  I'll at least take a look and give it a shot.

@dlarsen If you want to save an instrument-layer preset, zip and attach it here, I'll convert it for you.

This is not really what I meant.  I meant using unify as a DAW effect.  Putting it in the Fx section.  Is that on the roadmap?

It is absolutely on the roadmap, and I understood what you were asking from the start. I was simply explaining how you might achieve some of the results you seek with features that exist now.

BTW which DAW do you use, and are you on Mac or Windows?

I gotcha, that probably came across wrong.  I was just checking in for my annual "is it soup yet?"  @getdunne Most of the time my daily driver is Bitwig on Windows.  I have a Linux and Mac test rig.  I test Traction Waveform from time to time.  

 

My endgame is to create presets for U-he Uhbik.  I see it being so powerful and a viable commercial preset library.

You could get started by Kushview Element, a free plug-in similar to Unify's ComboBox. Because this is free, Uhbik owners would not need to buy anything else.

We learned early, that a preset library for products X and Y (e.g. Unify plus some synth) appeals only to those who already own both products (or are willing to buy them). There is no point limiting your audience this way.

It's been a bucket list thing for so long.  I was originally developing the library in combinator in Reason, then Urs said no more U-he reason support.  Then Unify came out... 🙂
