New test of multiple patches in Unify
Here is a patch that I created to see what I could do with Unify and multiple patches from Pluginguru libraries.
I used it to create a piece that I will upload when it's finished. I included a short excerpt from the piece as a midi file.
I did have a slight problem with this patch. In my larger song file, the bass notes would not turn off when the midi ended. However, I have not been able to reproduce this in a second simpler file, and neither could Shane, so I doubt that it is a Unify problem.
There are 5 instruments in the patch.
On the first instrument, I changed the default to Omnisphere, and loaded Pluginguru Megamagic Dreams PAD BoyVoxVerb
The second instrument is also from Megamagic Dreams, but it is loaded in Serum as above by adding a blank instrument and changing it to Serum. PAD - Very Pretty Virus
The third instrument is Serum Megamagic Pads PAD - Worlds Divided
The 4th instrument is Unify PAD - Uberheim from Tetrasonics
The 5th instrument is a mix of PAD - Worlds Divided from both Omnisphere and Serum both from Megamagic Pads
The 6th (and last) instrument is Unify BASS - Solid Butter from Omnichill
You will need all of the libraries mentioned, and Serum, and have installed both to Omnisphere and Serum to use the patch.
The instruments are panned in different directions, and volumes adjusted. It is also a Split with bass (Solid Butter) from C1 to C3, and treble from C4 up.
Included in the zip is a small mp3 that shows how the patch sounds. It was made entirely with this patch.
The patch should be copied to your Unify User Patch folder, beneath the Libraries folder.
Then re-scan the libraries (lightning bolt upper right) to have it show up in the User Libraries list.
It was just an experiment to see how Unify would handle those instruments together.
I am creating a song with it (the midi was an excerpt) that I will post later. It has this patch, along with 4 other instances of unify, two of which load Unify patches.
My plan for now is to use Unify for all VST instruments.
The single file was too big, so here they are separately.
On both zip file uploads, I got a message that "You are not allowed to attach a file of this type".
Is there something I need to do to be able to upload files?
Normally .zip files upload without trouble. The maximum upload size is only 10 MB right now. Could that be the issue?
No, I first ran into that problem. Then I split the files into two zip files that were smaller than 10 megs, and still got error messages. I will try it again now.
It worked this time. The files are in the applicable messages above. When I edited them and uploaded, it worked.
Big thanks to Martin for sharing this. I'm sorry there were problems uploading.
Martin contacted me directly at first, describing a number of problems he had when working with this multi-layer patch, but I was unable to reproduce the issue. He later told me the problem went away when he created a new song project in his DAW (Cakewalk by Bandlab). I'd be interested to know if anyone else experiences difficulty with this material.
