Hi Chipi - The title of the video was Unify 1.1 Video #1: Installation and I made more of a fixing a problem video instead of a video on how to install Unify 1.1. We have 2 files, it's very easy to install and also to update. I want to make a better, more direct video with more helpful information instead of a problem solving video. If there are problems, people can contact us at UnifySupport@PlugInGuru.com and we will help them out no matter where they purchased Unify. Customers from other websites can also contact UnifySupport@ilio.com and they have a wonderful team of technical support people ready to help as well whenever needed.

There is no cover up. I don't think anybody is stupid. I also don't want to give information that if anything will confuse customers even more...

If that is a problem for you, chipi, please let me know.

Shane and John yesterday uploaded a video to youtube trying to explain the disaster that is the installation process in UNIFY and instead of improving it they decided to remove the video from youtube and all the comments, they think the users are stupid. Why don't they know how to absorb the criticism instead of wanting to cover it up? ... 8)

hmm, nks is on the way. When I first saw the 8 macro knob on unify, i thought that could be mapped to KK.
KK have week points too, but provides this mouseless "hands on" experience for the computer musicians, and this is a cool thing.
i'm curious to see what will be with unify nks.

So, apparently there's an update again. Unify 1.1.7. :

Version 1.1.7 (released 26 June 2020)
This update is recommended for all Unify users running Unify 1.1.2 or 1.1.3. It is primarily a maintenance (bug-fix) update, but there are a few changes, mainly to facilitate license-activation management and use of embedded Unify instances. See the online manual for details.

License activation: If licenses become invalid, e.g., due to major OS update:
Unify will prompt for re-authorization of ALL existing licenses, one at a time.
(It is no longer necessary to re-install licensed libraries to trigger this.)
Patch database will no longer rebuild automatically after re-authorizing each library.
(It may be necessary to rebuild manually after re-authorizing multiple libraries, but user decides when.)
Buttons:
Every view except layer-stack views now features a "close" button at top right.
"Revert" button is disabled until a patch is either loaded or saved.
Patch database:
Library names may now contain apostrophes without ill effect.
Database rebuilds automatically after loading any .guru file which contains patches.
SAVE dialog automatically fills in last-used values for Category, Tags, and Author.
Settings:
"Plug-in windows always on top" checkbox is now always available.
Two new checkboxes to select options related to embedded Unify instances.
Macro knobs:
Knob text is bright if parameters are linked, dimmed if not.
Each knob's ops button has new "copy/paste" functions.
Ops button for entire Macro Knobs view has new options for managing links to embedded Unify instances (see manual).
Macro parameter links:
When any layer is deleted, all macro links referring to that layer are deleted automatically.
When layers are renumbered (e.g. after deleting a layer), links are also renumbered automatically.
In embedded Unify instances, macro knobs are NOT linked to MIDI CCs (and cannot be).
New options for automatic creation of links for embedded Unify instances (see manual).
Linked parameter windows:
Restored double-click to edit parameter path as text function.
Changing the parameter path no longer resets the curve to a straight line.
Resolved an issue with clicking to select specific parameters in list.
VST3 plug-ins:
Improved compatibility with VST3 plug-ins (some will work now, which didn't work before).
MIDI CC-out is now supported for VST3 plug-ins.
MIDI implementation:
New Settings option to enable MIDI CC#7 linked to Master Volume.
New Settings option to enable MIDI CC#11 linked to Volume Expression (volume scaling).
(When either is enabled, those MIDI CC messages are not propagated to plug-ins.)
(Volume scaling is automatically reset if you adjust master volume manually, or init/load patch.)
Bug fixes:
Patch save/load:
Fix crashing when reloading certain (mainly VST3) plug-ins.
Fix crashing when changing patches while linked parameter windows are open.
Fix bug where patches and layer presets saved using VST3 instruments would not receive MIDI when reloaded.
Layer muting:
Fix bug where muting all layers had the effect of muting none.
Replacing an AUX or INST layer from a layer preset does not change layer's mute/solo state
Load Plug-in State: Fix restore plug-in state functionality.
JitterBox: Fixed multiple bugs in pitch-jitter functionality.
MIDIBox and JitterBox: will no longer leave stuck notes if bypassed.
NoizBox: fix incorrect dry/wet mix when plug-in is first loaded.
Macro presets: Loading a preset now sets Macro knob positions correctly.
Many smaller fixes.
More BPM please

Continuous improvement. Great attention to detail and customer feedback. Wish more developers were this attentive.

Yeah great that they continue to update. But it wouldn't harm sending a mail to customers to inform them about an update ;)

Oh, and 1 issue : When you switch size and the ui grows out of bounds, there's no way to switch it back. Maybe put the "settings" button on top, like all other plug-ins do...
More BPM please
