Tool for converting presets from 3rd party synths into to .unify format to maximize the potential of the Dice feature
First of all, I've got to say, that the addition of the "Dice" feature is the best thing that ever happened to Unify, imo. I am really thankful for it.
For me, Unify is primarily interesting in regards to layering sounds, not playing complete musical phrases with Drums and Key splits in all. That's why the new Dice function really gets me to using Unify more than before. Unfortunately, it completely relies on having presets of any 3rd party plugin in the unify library in unify format to work.
I just wished there would be some kind of tool to automate the conversion process. I've seen a post for a Windows script to automate the process to some distinct, but I am on macOS, unfortunately. It's just such a tedious process to manually convert presets to they can be loaded in Unify.
I've installed the Unifed Libraries for 3rd which are available on the plugin guru homepage, but I also own the complete Arturia V Collection 7 and it would be incredible to have them integrated since soooo many synths (about 25 or so).

We would like that, too. The problem is that there is no general way to do this; it depends on the specific plug-in.
There is a very active group of Unify users making new unified libraries all the time. If you're looking for something specific, post in the Unified Libraries & PlugIns section.
I managed to create a little script in Automator to open existing presets in unify, replace text in the author field and update it.
The big hurdle is creating presets. Opening plugins, calling up presets, saving them and getting the name is especially difficult. Maybe if create a list with the presets name so the script can step through it would be an option. But Autonmator is not reallly that powerful, I believe. Will fiddle with it a bit more.
