Hi,

There's a behavior in Unify that's driving me crazy and constantly interrupting my workflow. I use the computer keyboard for a lot of commands in my DAW (Cubase), the problem is that when I select a sound in the Unify Browse window the focus stays on Unify so I have to click back in my DAW somewhere to bring the focus back to the DAW so I can run a command (like start/stop/navigate, etc. within the DAW). 

If I forget to click in the DAW to change the focus Unify will capture my computer keyboard output and usually ends up moving my cursor in the Unify Browse window to the end of the list of presets. I like to scroll through the presets from the top down and audition the ones that look useful but this screws up my workflow because I have to search through the huge list of presets to find where I left off before the cursor moved.

Anyway, it would be great if there was an option to disable computer keyboard input in Unify or an option to not leave the focus on Unify after you select a preset. That would make it so that I'm not swearing at my computer every 5 minutes.

Other than that I'm loving Unify. Thanks for listening to my rant.

 

-Sean

I hear you! Keystroke processing has been a sore point in Unify since day one. The programming framework I use (JUCE) makes this very challenging, so although I hope to improve it in the long run, it's not likely to happen any time soon.

I appreciate your feedback and I'm sorry that Unify is giving you some frustration, but glad to know you're enjoying it at least.

Thanks for the reply and the explanation. I am very much enjoying Unify and hopefully I can develop some new habits with my workflow to avoid the situation happening as often.
