1. Unify standalone keeps bugging me to delete the demo folder though I've said "yes" everytime
The Unify Demo installer puts the Demo library into the default Unify data folder (C:\Users\Public\Documents\PlugInGuru\Unify
on Windows, /Users/Shared/PlugInGuru/Unify
on Mac), so if you chose to put the main Unify data folder somewhere else for the full install, you might need to go back and delete that whole default folder manually. This is supposed to happen automatically when you click "yes" as you described; if it does not, this could indicate either a bug or a folder-permissions issue on your machine.
2. Global velocity curve is not taking precedence over the patch's volume curve. I need to modify every patch to a playable curve.
The global velocity curves (one per MIDI channel) don't "take precedence over" the per-layer curves. The global curve is applied first, before any per-layer curves. The idea is to match the velocity response of your keyboard (and your playing style) to what the patch designer used when creating patches. See https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/dok ... ity_curves
3. The "reverb baked into a patch" is a nice concept, except for when you pitch bend a note and all the preceding notes (the tails) get bent, so it's kind of useless for that. Better approach would have been to include a convolution reverb with those reverby patches. Having no control over them sucks.
You're talking about John's "MegaMagic" technique of baking reverb into samples. This is not specific to Unify, and has also been used in Omnisphere, Kontakt, etc. (It was done because Omnisphere only allows one user sample per layer.) Unify includes a nice convolution reverb called Klangfalter, which you can add on an AUX layer (or even on the Master layer) to any patch you like. To achieve the response you're seeking, either use dry samples, or, if you're using "MegaMagic" samples, shorten the Release time in Guru Sampler.
Wish there was a "global mute" button so I can mute the standalone app.
You could set this up by linking a macro knob to master/mixLevel
(see https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/dok ... ime-params
), but I'm curious why you ask for a master mute. AFAIK no one has ever asked for this before. Can you explain how you would use it?
