The free & open sources Surge synthesizer just got an update, so I thought it would be a good candidate for being Unified. I have started doing the factory banks.
The common format is VST3, and it has no VST2 so I will do the VST3 version.
Bravo, thank you!
VST3 should be fine, and the resulting Unify patches should work on both Mac and Windows. Let's find out!
Okay...619 patches later, I have the Factory Soundbank for Surge Unified. There are a few Template Patches included and 3 Vocoder patches that I included to be complete. Not sure if they can be used inside of Unify using CombBox or not.
I did not assign Macro knobs since I think you guys have an easier way to do that.
Where do you want them Shane and John?
I will plan on doing the included 3rd party patches at some point. Any ideas on how to organize/name/give credit, etc?
Please send me a link to the library and we can finalize it and host it for everybody.... we typically credit all the patches author as "PlugInGuru" for these types of libraries. Thank you for doing this - I REALLY was interested in selecting Surge to be included in Unify but it's not possible since it is being worked on by so many people and being updated often. That type of activity is great to see for the plugin but challenging when you're building a stable environment.... people asking all the time for the latest version etc just made it not feasible.
But a Unified Library is WONDERFUL! Send a link to email@example.com when you can. Thank you!

So, as previously mentioned, I've been unifying the 3rd Party Presets for Surge as well, but have run into a snag. Most of the categories make sense, but there are a few odd ones in there. What do you suggest I do when I get to the oddball ones like in the attached image? I want to make sure they make sense, but these do not.
1,395 Surge 3rd Party patches have been Unified and sent off to John. Hopefully released to the community soon!
Unify doesn't know where to find your third-party plug-ins unless you tell it; see https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=scanning.
@getdunne Ahhh, Newby mistake - I didn't scan my VST3 folder thinking that they couldn't be used in Unify - all scanned and working fine. Thanks for the rapid response!
No problem - enjoy Unify!
Note you don't have to scan every plug-in you have, although you might want to do so once, at some point. The easier way is just to register plug-ins individually, whenever you want to use them.
@getdunne Cheers, I did the whole lot! But since I intend to make use of them all I Unifuy anyway at least it's done now.
Keep up the great work.
