This forum is where you can let us know about problems with the Unify online manual at https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual . Maintaining a user manual for software as complex as Unify, especially while that software is undergoing changes, is a challenging task, and we welcome your help. If you spot anything in the manual which is missingconfusing, or otherwise problematic, please let us know by posting comments here.

If the issue is something that may need a bit of discussion, please click the blue "Add Topic" button to start a separate discussion thread about it.

Thanks in advance for helping make the Unify manual better!

Hi, thanks for keeping the User Manual updated. I'm currently adding Unify bundled plugins to my customised plugin subset list and I found out that some of the MIDI effects (MidiBox, PolyBox) are not listed on this page: https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=bundled-plugins#midi_effects

Good eye, thank you! That page was a relic from an earlier version of the manual, superseded by what I had added to the main start page. I have simply replaced it by moving the newer content, leaving just a link on the start page.

Also, there is a Passthru built-in effect which seems to do exactly what it's name suggest: passing audio thru, but I couldn't find any information about it

Thanks, I thought I found an Easter Egg;)

BTW I found the Passthru plugin very useful! And this is why: a default INIT patch always loads a Sine Wave Synth as a instrument, but there are scenarios where I don't want the new (INIT) patch to play any sound till I load one of my favourites synths into the instrument slot. Now, I can replace the Sine Wave Synth with the Passthru plugin (that I already added to my instrument plugin subset list) and save it as a template. Thanks to that, I can have multi-layered Instrument template with 8 Passthru placeholders as a instruments and predefined channel strips on each audio layer, and once loaded, I can easily swap the placeholders with my synths. So why is the Passthru placeholder better for me? Because it doesn't make any sound when I press the key on my keyboard (a template with 8 Sine Wave Synths playing the sound straight away doesn't sound nice to me;)

 Very interesting! Thank you for the tip. I'll mention that to John.

@getdunne The manual is looking very good and being online can be kept up to date with changes.

Today I thought I would remove the free Obsession Library I was too quick to add during the Livestream as I probably won't be buying Obsession even though the demo is pretty good as I already have quite a few OB synths (Arturia, PA and the free one in Unify).

So after a few fruitless minutes spent skimming through the Unify menus looking for a "Delete Library" function I turned to the online manual. There is a section on adding libraries but I couldn't find anything on deleting them. Is this something that can be added in future? Also, can you briefly tell me how to do it? Thanks

@zinct

I have edited the appropriate page https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=libraries . Scroll to the bottom for instructions on how to remove libraries. Thanks for pointing this out!

@getdunne Thank you, that looks just the ticket.
