Hello UNIFY

I purchase UNIFY a few mouths a go, i´m very happy and pleased with your product, but i would like to suggest, if possible two features.

-Note quantizer to choose specific notes and keep always in scale, i think it will very nice and useful.
-Zone constrain is handy for keep all midi notes converted and always inside certain zone definable by the user.
This is very useful for playing drum zones or maps like Halion or Grove Agent...

Sorry if those features already suggested and for my poor English.

Thank you for your time and patience and all the best.

Dionisio

Note/scale quantization can be done using the included BlueARP MIDI-effect.

Please explain what you mean by "zone constrain". You can already set upper and lower note-limits per layer in Unify. What else do you need?

Hi @getdunne 

In Blue Arp we have scales quantization and it´s not possible to choose specific notes , in note quantization is possible to choose specific notes and it´s freely customizable.

Yes, is possible to adjust a layer's key-range, but i think the notes outside key-range will be lost and not converted to that key-range, the idea is convert that notes to a nearest ones inside a customizable key-range

Thank you for your reply and time

Dionisio

Please explain exactly what you mean by "choose specific notes".

How exactly should notes outside the key-range be converted?

Hi again

Sorry for a late reply

choose specific notes means you can design your own scales by selecting notes, note quantizer is a note processor used in modular systems
maybe a link helps to explain more clearlly 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rz8u0b30mM&t=999s

notes outside the key-range will be converted to same correspondent note but inside the key-range definable by the user.
as example if a sequence of notes are C2, F#2, D#6, G6 and the a key-range between C3 and C5 to match a drum map in Dark Planet,Groove Agent,or Kontakt it will convert to C3, F#3, D#4, G4

Sorry to bother you

I see. I'll put this on the to-do list, but I'm sure there are already MIDI-effect plug-ins available that provide this capability.

Ah yes. This is what I would call "folding" of the note range, and it's something I've been thinking of adding to Unify for a long time. I'll give some more thought to this.

Sorry to bother you

No need to apologize! I'm happy to discuss these ideas, even if I can't add them to Unify right away.

 Hi @getdunne 

In my case i use note quantizers from Reason Rack and VCV Pro inside Unify as midi processors but i think if Unify have a dedicated one natively will be very nice and bring´s a new exploration possibilities, new harmonies and out there are thousands of scales to explore and maybe in future the possibility of Unify import microtuning Scala files.

Yes folding you are right is the correct technical term, it will be very handy for match note sequences with zone maps and drum maps

No worries thank you once more and all the best

I think you'll be able to find everything you're looking for with these free MIDI utilities (I use them constantly) in addition to those from Unify.

Hi @papopap 

Thank you for your reply and suggestion, i use them too, but PIZ unfortunately are no longer active.

My idea is to make Unify more independent, versatile and stronger.

All the best

Dionisio
