Unify v1.9.1 is now available with Native Apple Silicon Support and an incredible new MIDI Effect called CC Rider included!
Unify now includes 40 Patches including 38 NEW or Updated patches with this update!
Please scroll down the page to see the list of all the libraries available for Unify – NOTE: Unified libraries are FREE support libraries that consist of the Factory Patches from over 80 plug-ins. You HAVE to own the plug-in for these libraries to be useful. Install the VST2 version into Unify or the VST3 if a VST2 is not included.
We also offer a FREE DEMO VERSION of Unify so you can try before buying if you wish. Everything works (saving is disabled, it can’t load any of our libraries, just play select patches from our factory content and scan your plug-ins to confirm how cool it is to layer multiple plug-ins you own inside of Unify!) The demo version will quit after 15 min of use. You can restart it again if you wish.
Anybody can now get the Full Installer or Updater files to download from either logging into your PluInGuru.com account or from our Distributer partner Ilio’s download links: https://www.ilio.com/unify-updates
Listen to the audio demos, watch the patch and interface walk thru videos (as well as other support videos) and you will be inspired with what YOU can create after adding this amazing plug-in instrument to your toolkit!
Say hello to a NEW WAY of working with Plug-ins of all types! Unify can work with MIDI Effects, Instruments and Audio Effects in creative fun and inspiring ways. Unify includes plug-ins VST2, VST3 and Audio Units (Mac only) PLUS a Standalone application for PC and Mac. One of the cool things with Unify is that any format of plug-in can load other formats of plug-ins – meaning the Audio Unit version can easily load VST3 and VST plug-ins while you’re using it in Logic Pro X (which doesn’t know what to do with VST or VST3 plug-ins). We talked to a number of small (like us) developers who have made some rather amazing free plug-ins in the last 20 years and received their blessing to include their plug-ins and audio effects – along with our own Guru Sample Player and 14 Effects we built ourselves so that Unify ships with 625 ready-to-play patches when you install it.
That puts Unify in a totally different class than any other “Host” PlugIn: we include 6 Instrument and 40 effect plug-ins that John “Skippy” Lehmkuhl used to make the 625 patches that are included and play the second you install Unify. From simple basses and pads to complex 12 layers of plugins doing incredible rhythmic wavesequence types of sounds and everything in-between, it’s breathtaking what has been created here.
Plug-Ins Included with Unify (placed in their own Plug-In folder, away from your existing Plug-In folders):

UNIFIED Libraries –
FEB 2023: I’ve just released OTT#13 (One Topic Tip video #13) on loading your own samples into Unify. I created a empty template library called “My Sample Vault” that you can download from HERE. If you would like the 30+ min step by step video on how to load your own gazillion samples into Unify, it’s available to watch HERE.
A Unified Library is where we save out each factory patch from a specific Plug-In in Unify format. YOU MUST OWN THE PLUG-IN the library of patches if from. The advantages are:
All the factory patches in our easy to view browser, organized by category.
In Unify Patch format, by simply changing the Patch Loading Mode to “Unify / Layer”, any new patch you select is added to your existing patch for immediate layers/building of sounds. This is impossible in every other plug-in out there and makes Unify truly unique.
In order to use these Unified Patches, you need to own the specific Plug-In, and have for the most part the VST2 version of this plug-in added to Unify’s “Known PlugIn” list.
If you get an ERROR MESSAGE (Plug-In MISSING) when trying to load a Patch, Watch This.

I’ve been on the fence since watching the videos on unify and also enjoying the patches for bx oberheim and knifonium VSTs. I ended up purchasing it. The capabilities of this VST is amazing. You can load all your vsts in an instant through the plugin. Effects are good. you can Layer with ease. I mean just the presets themselves are great but it takes it over the top with what is capable. Super impressed with the macro controls for the Cherry Audio VSTs. For the price point I definitely recommend.
Simply extraordinary achievement. Nothing like this has ever been done before in the history of sample music production. Exhilarating and inspiring. Displays the power of Unify like nothing else.
Unify is one of the most creative and versatile plugins I have ever seen. It allows an extensive amount of creativity and stacking of plugins on the fly. Very useful for live jam-style one-man-band performances. I love the fact that it allows me to host AU and VST3 plugins, as the DAW I use (Reason) does not yet support these formats. With Unify, I can run all three main formats (AU, VST2 and VST3) together in the same session. Brilliant!
Hi Plugin Guru Community,
Unity finally caught my attention after purchasing Arturia’s Pigments 2 VST. I ran across the Unity/Pigments Unified promo video luckily as I had downloaded Pigments 2 on sale, and then tested it and thought, this plug in is great but not multitimbral meaning I have to load new instances of the Pigments plug in to have another patch in my midi set up on my computer. THEN, I just happen the next day to see Plugin Guru’s Unified Pigments titled video. I was like what’s Unified Pigments mean and is this some new ink product or is this the same Pigments plug in I just bought? I was glad to find out that Unified Pigments was what I was imagining needing the day before testing Pigments. I downloaded and installed Unity after testing the Unity Demo. The demo worked and was enough to confirm it was a good purchase and would work on my system. (I should note that Pigments patches will not load into the Unity demo, that’s a bummer, but I figured Pigments would work as advertised!). And it does work! And exactly as I would have imagined even with more work flow features that I had imagined in my mirage of Pigments wish list dream features the day before. Unity does it. Super slick Skippy. HIghly recommend this Unity purchase and Unified Pigments download as an add on functionally to Arturia Pigments 2. With these 2 apps you are getting an under $200 dollar “in the box” more powerful functioning (because of the multiple parts and polyphony benefit of Unity and Pigments together) version of say Waldorf Iridium’s hardware desktop synth which is limited to 16 voices and 2 parts for about $2,500!
Many possibilities, sound quality. BPM split patches are true pieces of art, its sounds like a complete song. I just wondering what Unify can do in the future when it will be pro edition.
Price/Quality unbeatable. Sounds combinations and creativity in general, just amazing. Such a good work.
Just buy it, really a no brainer.
The ability to map Breath CC02 to any plugin parameter even if the synth doesn’t accept Breath is priceless. The ability to play all your monophonic emulation plugins with polyphony is a game-changer. The ability to use your finely-tweaked layers, that took hours to create, in any DAW and on a Mac or PC, makes Unify a Must Buy. 🙂
Unify renewed my enthusiasm for making music!
I am fascinated by the myriad possibilities that this Plugin offers!
Best purchase ever!
Thank you for offering at an affordable price!
All The Best 🙂
Amazements, I purchased Unify a couple of days ago trying it for the first time.
It’s a game changer, opening up a whole lot of awe inspiring creativity. Go on try it…
Have fun!! 🙂

Needless to say, JL has changed my life. All his patch collections were great and inspirational. But Unify is a crowning achievement. Don’t even think about it. Just buy it. Great investment!
I really can’t believe what is here in this PlugIn It’s so complete 🙂
There is such a variety of sounds and grooves and setups, I’ve not experienced anything quite like it. Everything I try to put into words just sounds dumb, like ‘there is love in this plugin’, dumb right…
The install was simple and Unify worked stand alone without having to change anything, it also shows up as a vst3 instrument in Studio One and after scanning for vst’s and vst3’s I can load any of my existing instruments into Unify.
Some of the Split Keyboard patches could be complete songs in themselves and they cover so many genres of music…
Next level stuff. I’m really excited about getting more familiar with it and seeing how it can fit my creative workflow. Early days but I am very impressed!
Only a musician could invent this. It is the missing tool that resolves incompatibility. Sure Omnisphere has multi instrument, Kontakt too, but only within their own libraries and yes you can layer in a daw, BUT not like this and so easily. I described it to my wife as its like looking at a long buffet table and all you have to is grab a plate. To install this is ease, for it to see your entire library of instruments is so quick and easy that within minutes you are in awe of beholding a new level of power, ease and creativity. Not only that but it is so very well thought out with touches like the instant favorites. It's easy to use, intuitive without needing a diploma. I love it, its already transformed how i work. The cream is comes with great sounds as usual – add the new Cloud City and youre in plugin guru heaven. I suspect this is just the beginning of where Unify will take us!
To say that Unify is a cool plugin would be a gross understatement. I own over 800 plugins, so I have a pretty good frame of reference. And I can say without reservation that Unify is the most amazing music making tool ever created! And it will undoubtedly never be replicated. John and his colleagues who put this together are absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t even begin to describe all the useful features and do it any justice in a reasonable length review. You just have to get on the PlugInGuru website and check out some of John’s tutorial videos. Admittedly, the sheer volume of helpful instructional videos is a bit daunting, but once I understood how incredibly powerful and useful this plugin is, I knew I had to have it and that it would be worth investing whatever time it takes to learn it. It’s actually very intuitive and exquisitely designed. It’s just that John is extremely generous about taking the time to ensure that all of his customers are well educated. To cite just one property of Unify that I never thought I’d encounter: I have an older OS that struggles to run Logic with multiple instances of high CPU-consuming instruments, like Serum or Omnisphere. And I used to have to bounce MIDI files to audio and remove the instrument from a project to add another instrument. But with Unify, I can now run multiple instances of any of my 800+ instruments and plugins (within Unify) without crashing the project. The presets load almost instantly. This is some truly ground-breaking technology! That alone would have sold me on Unify. BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE!!! It far surpasses anything your mind can imagine about making a giant leap in music-making technology. You have to see it to believe it.
Great way to combine different plugins directly and together.
Also in Logic Pro X or Mainstage different plugins in a patch!
Great, thanks to John en Shane.
I’ve been using Unify since its first release. It was the patches that hooked me at first. Then you get your head around the processes, and then you begin to see the possibilities Unify provides and you begin to realise just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Great support from John along the way too, with excellent live streams and direct tech support when I needed it. It really feels like there is a growing Unify community and I’m so looking forward to seeing how other users creatively employ Unify in the future.
