I've been using Unify standalone successfully but I recently had to delete the audio driver That was using. Now when I try to start up, it attempts to load that driver and then crashes when it can't. Is there some failsafe trick to reloading a default configuration or something like that? Or editing a config file that would allow me to start it without trying to load the previously selected audio driver?

That certainly is a nuisance. You need to locate the Unify.settings file, and edit it with a true text editor. Make sure no Unify instances are running when you do this (not even in a DAW).

On Windows, enter %appdata%\PlugInGuru on the address line of an Explorer window. On the Mac, navigate in Finder to ~/Library/Application Support/PlugInGuru (that's your personal Library in your own home folder, not the system-wide one at the root of the drive).

The Unify.settings file is an XML file, which means you have to be careful about preserving the format. I recommend making a safe copy before trying to edit it, so you can revert back to that if you run into problems. (You can also use any of several online XML validator tools to check the contents after editing if you're uncertain.)

Search for the text "<VALUE name="audioSetup">". Delete this line, and every following line up to and including "</VALUE>". Then save the file, re-run Unify, and it should start up without crashing. You can then go to Settings and select your Audio/MIDI devices, buffer size, etc. as usual.
