Unify 1.0.12 is available NOW

Recommended Posts

If you expand/scroll that view database window really, really wide, there is a column "InstPlugin" that may be where the instrument tagging is coming from.

Are you using the Instruments drop down and selecting PG-8X or are you using the Tags drop down and finding the PG-8X tag?  Using the Tags I only get the Spitting Piano. But the Instruments drop down gives the larger list, since it's built from the plugins on the patch.

 This ^^^^^

When you initially said that those patches showed up under the tag PG-8X I naturally went to the browser and selected "Tags --> PG-8X" which only shows the single piano patch. However, selecting "Instruments --> PG-8X" does indeed show all of the patches in your original list.

So, essentially there is no issue with my install. I will close the ticket. Thanks for help in to getting to the bottom of it Matt.

Although Unify seemed to work fine I really dislike little anomalies that cannot be explained - it kinda eats away at me (especially when I have lots of time to think about it like at the moment). 🤪

Unify's dependence on open source VST plugins seems to take some of the value out of it for me.  The presets are pretty nice though.  I wish the content management was a bit better.  Plugins that have their own/expandable content/presets aren't new but lately it's been a lot of focus.  But in almost every case the end user headaches are way too high.  The idea that a community will share patches and content for free hasn't ever really worked all that well, Native Instruments Reactor I suppose is the only "good" example I can think of, and it's a zoo.  Unify has a bit of that still, instead of supporting a managed a curated library of high quality (and perhaps paid) content.  I don't want 9999 patches of various quality and value.  I want 10 excellent patches with well thought out macros and controls.  I need less quantity and more quality.
