Hey guys, 

I think a nice feature would be the ability to save a master effects layer as default so that anytime you loaded a 'normal' layer it would keep it automatically without having to select it each time you called up something new.  I have 7 or 8 effects in a saved layer with most of them bypassed so this would be convenient to quickly toggle them on and off with the layer already being there.  Just a quick time saver.  Also helps when you get fast inspiration and want to call up a library to have it ready to roll to noodle around with.

Thanks, 

--Brent

Interesting idea. I'll put it on the to-do list.

Several users have asked for a way to define the default patch, i.e., what you get when Unify first starts and/or when you hit INIT. This might be a special case of that.

@getdunne That would be great, I rambled but that's exactly what I was trying to say  🙂

-----> Update 8/14 - I liked your idea as an overall default.  I'm having issues with some Kontakt libraries working with omni midi and others that want midi channel 1 as default.  In Unify, the NC midi channel convert seems to work for both scenarios if I set it to '1' but I have to do it each time.  Is there a workaround for this that you can think of Shane?

Thanks,

I have a workaround for now that only takes one additional mouse click to mimic the behavior of having a Default  preset. However, it only works when the Unify Standard Library is one of the libraries currently displayed.

When you click on "Init", a preset named "Untitled" is highlighted in the preset list. I created a new preset with all my desired layers and settings and saved it using the name "Untitled Default" in the Unify Standard Library folder. The name of this preset means that it will be listed immediately after the "Untitled" preset. Now, every time you click the INIT button, just click on the Preset Down Arrow button next to it and your custom Default patch will be loaded.

Being able to define a true default patch would be ideal, but this will do for now.

BTW: Some VST's have a "Make this the Default Patch" option when you right click on the preset name in the Preset Browser. This would be an easy and intuitive mechanism to make any existing preset be your default.
