Use of Unify fx vs VST Fx
I'm just dipping my toes into the Unified libraries and had a look at the Diva Unified library. Just for my understanding, what is the logic in having Unify Reverb and Delay fx in the patch when there is already access to those FX through Diva? I'm just keen to understand the approach so I can work out whether these Unified libraries are something useful for my workflow.

In a sense it's redundant, but using Unify's resources provides:
- Slightly easier parameter linking
- More flexible routing
- Option to use different delay/reverb algorithms than what the third-party plug-in (in this case Diva) provides
- Greater tutorial value, to illustrate patch design for Unify, independent of the third-party plug-in.
It's also very effective once you add more than 1 layer of instruments. You now have global effects ready to be used.
Since they are very CPU efficient, having AUX bus effects are great once things get more complex.
Life is Sound / Sound is Divine
Thanks guys - makes sense. I'm at the early stage on these unified libraries, but beginning to see how they can be really useful. More so when I'm in production mode rather than Live performance mode (which has been my focus to date and where Unify has been incredible....unifying;=)
