Upgrade to Unify Pro
If I understood I right John said that the pro version will include libraries. Does it make sense to buy cloudy city if I will upgrade to the pro version later on.
This is a road map plan, the Unify Pro might be seen to public next year, and it will have its own new content, which can be totally different than what's on Unify we have today, so we will have two different products. Those who want to do more with Unify, like having more articulated samples, more features, can have the Pro version.
"In heaven, all the interesting people are missing."
I don't think the content for Unify Pro has been worked out yet. It was suggested that Pro might have the full versions of Plugin Guru libraries rather than the light versions that are included now in standard Unify. Also it was suggested that if you have a number of Plugin Guru libraries purchased already, Pro might come with a discount for the number of libraries you have. This is something that Rob Papen does with his Explorer Bundle ... if you have 2 of his products, you get a discount, ... if you have 3, you get a bigger discount ... etc ...
In any case, considering all the work that is being done now on Standard Unify, I would expect Pro is going to be way down the road for a release date. Even then, I am sure the extra features it will have will make Pro irresistible to Unify fans.
You really need John to talk about this. Personally, I wouldn't expect Cloud City or any other Unify library to come bundled w/Unify Pro. What I understood John to be saying about bundling older libraries w/Pro was that he's looking at converting the samples in his libraries for 3rd party products (like Omnisphere) into the Unify format and that those might be included in Pro or have bundled pricing.
I plan to buy libraries I like as they're released so that the guys have the cash to to complete the work on Unify and Unify Pro. They are great about releasing free feature updates that other company's would bundle and charge for. Like all of us, they have families to support also.
I thought that only we Poles can constantly complain, when I see there are more of us. Gentlemen, let's enjoy what John and Shane have and what we will see someday. Have fun.
Unify Pro is still just an idea at this point. We don't know exactly what it will be, but we have some ideas. Basically it will be a bundle product, including various Unify libraries, paid feature upgrades, etc. plus some new "Pro only" features.
We'll make sure customers get credit for any bundled items they already bought. No one who buys early should end up paying more.
It will be at least a year before this happens.
I don't know if I can raise another topic here but I'll try. I installed the free ADSR Sample Manager for download from https://www.adsrsounds.com/product/software/adsr-sample-manager/, entered into Unify myself, I added all my libraries to ADSR and now I have a lot of nice sounds from additional samples. I would recommend.
