Hi Shane

 

I'm using Unify live ( and in the studio ) - and my setup is maturing well (getting more complicated)

Those macro's are awesome.

 

2 things I've encountered:

 

#1 / Dynamic Key Ranges controlled by macros

 

I have my piano loaded constantly. [ keyscape - Spectrasonics ]

I'd using an 88 note keyboard.

Depending on the song ( live ) - I sometimes need different key ranges

And sometimes I need to change the key ( maturing singers like to drop the key )

Is there away for macros to dynamically alter: loKey, hiKey and keyOffset?

 

#2 / Expanded Midi Filter Plugin

I'm using a macro - to send CC changes to Polybox on an additional instance of Unify.

There are lots of CC events flying around

I'm using ImpOscar-2 - but this listens to every CC to change the sound dynamically.

Which means, depending on what order we play the set in - any patch using impOscar2 - will be vastly different from the saved preset.

It would be nice to have a blanket CC filter with exceptions ( I think Unify midi filter has up to 6 CC's that can be filtered? - or is this the other way round ?)

 

I've been using eareckon MIDI POLYSHER

This blanket filters out CC's

And also has keyranges - which helps towards ( but doesn't solve ) the above issue.

 

Idearly:

Could Unify Midi Filter - have the feature to blanket filter all CC's - but have exceptions? (e.g. CC1, 7 and 11 )

// if this isn't the way that your midi filter already works //

 

Many thanks,

 

  David

Update:

 

The Dynamic Keyranges, Transpose I've got controlled with Macros and eareckon.com MIDI POLYSHER

So that's all working

 

Just need to find a midi filter ( with exceptions ) now.

Hi, you can find free PizMIDI "MIDI Notch Filter" (Mac/Pc) here:

https://code.google.com/archive/p/pizmidi/downloads

Unzip the latest archive compatible with your OS and find your file (in my case it's "midiNotchFilter.dll" - Windows10 PC) 

Up to 4 messages can be passed thru (all other messages will be blocked)

Thank you. These are both excellent suggestions.

Regarding CC/macro control of key ranges, etc., this will be possible eventually, as I gradually expand Unify's vocabulary of supported parameter paths. I'm glad to know you have an interim solution using eaReckon's free MIDI Polysher plug-in.

Regarding CC filtering with exceptions, i.e., passing only (rather than blocking only) specific CCs, this is a fantastic idea and could be added to our MIDI Filter with a single checkbox (block/pass). Unfortunately it's too late as Unify v1.5.3 has already shipped, but I'll put this high on the list for the next release.

Great stuff - looking forward to the next release.  Thank you

 

Also – I’m using Maschine Jam for my live controller. ( lots of buttons )

 

I can’t get the Maschine Jam buttons to send CC values using trigger in the assign mode in the NI Controller Software / Hardware.

Toggle mode works.

I’m toggling between 126/127 ( it swaps these two values every time I press the button

To get the transpose to reliably work – I’m having to offset the curve slightly ( see attached )

It would be great if NI controller trigger assign could send an absolute value to Unify.

But the toggle mode and scale gets round it.

Great news! For me it’s one of the essential features, and I’m happy to hear that it comes to the built-in MIDI Filter soon. Thank you!
