is it possible to restore a single patch from a patch library? 

i overwrote a unify/hive patch and i would like to reset it to the original parameters.

@zzz00m's solution will work for both Mac and Windows. To locate the correct file to overwrite, right-click the patch in Unify and choose "Reveal in Finder" ("Reveal in Explorer" on Windows).

To learn about the structure of .guru files and how Unify uses them, read https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=guru-files in the Unify manual.

On Windows, I recommend that you install the excellent free 7-zip utility. Then you won't even need to rename the .guru file; you can simply right-click it in Explorer and choose "open archive" from the "7-zip" sub-menu, navigate into the Patches sub-folder, and drag the .unify (or .upf) file you want straight out and drop it to your chosen location.

Hi - I realise that the focus is probably on 1) Shane moving house and 2) getting the next version of Unify done, but there is slippage with some of the Unified libraries and I don't know if help can be found.  The spitfire labs library needs an update, and I think the link is dead.  The G force OB-E needs updating for the V2 patches.  The newly added Softube Model 82 library only has a handful of the presets included - when John demoed this in the video he said he would be updating it, but it looks like he hasn't.  It would be great if these very useful files could have a bit of love from someone?

Thanks

Actually I see that spitfire link is restored, but is out of date (June 2), and the softube library is not on the list yet.

These are my concerns. John maintains the unified-libraries list, and his focus is mainly on developing new paid libraries so he can continue paying his bills. Free libraries are lower priority.

I have forwarded your post to John, as he doesn't check the Forum as often as I do.

Hi Robert! I appreciate the note - Labs is updated as a February - I am updating Labs with the newest libraries - maybe it will be available by next Saturday but my priority is always with bringing out libraries for Unify that are libraries we create. With OB-E and even Model 82, if somebody wants to take an existing patch (which as Mastering Effects, Knob assignments etc), open the plug-in, change to the new patches and save each one in Unify format and send them to me, I'm happy to put them into the libraries. Probably 75% of the Unified libraries is created by GuruNation™, not me. I have my hands full with a number of new libraries for Unify so I don't have time or resources to put into updating these free libraries. There are times I can put some love into these libraries but right now I can't. But all links are working and provide as advertised.  😀

@pluginguruforums Thanks - I understand that, and have indeed contributed to Guru files myself (the original labs file).  It would just be a help if you stop making claims in videos that you don't then back up.   Unless there is some kind of system in place to keep the Unified libraries updated, then their usefulness as a resource will simply erode over time.

I have now done all the factory patches for Model 82 - sent it through last week so it can be shared when it has been checked.

We prefer VST2 over VST3, when available, because VST2 patch data tend to be smaller

Would this practically rule out the possibility of writing a common script to convert unify xml patches to VST3?

The VST and VST3 preset blobs are very different in structure, and different plug-ins may require different conversion steps. I have done some semi-automated conversion the other way (VST3 to VST2), but it's complicated.

I've just been flicking through the Unified Serum library and I notice that Serum patches with a release tail click pretty badly when played via Unify due (I think) to the transport in 'MIDI / Quick Stop' mode causing it to panic abruptly on note-offs messages. Obviously note to self when building my own unify patches using Serum, but also wondering if the unified serum library patches should be updated with transport in different mode.

Serum has a "silence note+effect tails when host transport stops" checkbox in Settings, which is on by default. Switch off and all is well. Make sure to hit the little disk icon beside "Preferences" to save the change.

I saw mention that someone had done it on the FB advanced Unify Users page, but do not see it in the pinned post on all unified libraries above.

I have a feature request for the website section where Unified patches are listed. The list is growing quite big and there are a few listed that I do not recognize. I find myself coming back to this list a lot to see if a VST/library I just purchased has a Unified version.

I think it would be nice to have the following information along with the link for the zip file:

  • Name of the Developer/Manufacturer of the VST/Library
  • A link to that Developer/Manufacturer's website/product
  • Name of the actual VST/Library (usually, this is already a part of the filename of the zip file)
  • The link to download the zip file

It would also be nice to have this list searchable/sortable/filterable, like the main libraries. I think this would make it more useful and make owning Unify more desirable for those that own these VSTs and Libraries.

@despondo

These are all great suggestions, but will require considerable work--not just up-front, but forever. The amount of time John has to put into maintaining what are essentially free giveaways is limited.

One idea I've had is that perhaps someone could create a "community supported" list of Unified libraries, on another web site altogether.
