While there are great features and functionality. There is a point where there should be a pause and fix/add basic features not working or not included.

(Windows 10)

+Sticky features
    - the window size should be maintained normally like file explorer; if it is maxed, stay maxed, and upon next load up. Switch from browsing or open the plug-in screen, size should also be maintained.
    - if I display the MIDI keyboard @88 keys, it should keep that upon load up, also maybe stack those features like macros as well and/or make as a user preference.
    - when I first learned about this software, a lot of talk was about the amazing threading (most DAW do that too, hrm), so--- make a more obvious thread usage; for instance, Studio One has a window showing processor # and usage, the current one in Unity could be adjusted as is (bar) just add process # and maybe usage %.
     - option to keep plugin windows open (All the time)--- for some reason, this is a skipped or (done badly) feature on almost all DAWs. For non-multiple monitors may not seem like much, but when playing, or whatever on 4 monitors is it. 🙂
     - on crashes, maybe better internal catching to hand off to the developer; possible reminder "hey, last time I crashed, please check the event log and report it, if possible."

Thanks all.

Improving Unify's overall usability is high on our priority list for 2021, so this kind of feedback is both useful and welcome. Thank you.

From your post it's not clear whether you're talking about the stand-alone Unify app, or Unify as a plug-in. As an app, most of these matters are under our control (except crash handling, which is primarily an operating system issue). As a plug-in, we are at the mercy of the DAW.

Hi. I'm talking about the stand-alone, I know with any plug-in controlling size and such isn't always fixable/doable with in a DAW as a plugin. Although with other plugins most modern DAWs I've used don't seem to have an issue maintaining/resizing as needed.

Thanks for clarifying. As I said, improving usability and work-flow is a priority for us in 2021.
