Unify (Standard Edition)

Unify v1.5.3 is NOW Available!

Watch the V1.5 Video to see the update in action!

This is a FREE UPDATE to all existing customers! Version 1.5.3 is a maintenance update which fixes a serious issue on Windows systems using VST3 plugins. No new features are added but stability and functionality is improved on both platforms.

Version 1.5 added the following new abilities to Unify:

  1. Auto-Save up to the last 10 patches you edited (click Revert button to see the recall list of patches) Easily get back a patch you lost by clicking a button and changing patches by accident.
  2. “Are You Sure?” question when changing patches – only happens if the patch has been edited but some plugins “dirty” the patch when loaded so this question could pop up often – which is why it is OFF by default. Turn it on via the Settings page.
  3. Browser Always Open – On by default – open settings, back to main page, the Browser now is still open!
  4. Softube software compatibility with VST2 and AU plug-ins (not VST3)

Also includes optimizations and fixes reported by our customers!

Unify is ALWAYS ON SALE at $79!!

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 super creative fun ways. Unify Comes in VST (technically known as VST2), VST3 and Standalone for PC and Mac (Mac version also includes an Audio Unit version of Unify).

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 400 ready-to-play patches when you install it. BEFORE you even start loading your own plug-ins! That puts Unify in a totally different class than any other multi-plugiin: we include 6 Instrument and 40 effect plug-ins that John “Skippy” Lehmkuhl used to make the 400 patches that come with Unify. From simple to complex and everything in-between PLUS Laurent “AIRWAVE” Veronnez was able to add 30 additional Patches that push the limit on what Unify can do even farther than Skippy did. It’s breathtaking what has been created here. I spent 1+ year making this with Shane Dunne (the programmer of all the code in Unify) and I am still in awe at what we have created.

New Libraries for Unify:

Libraries that require ONLY Unify to work:

UniChill V1

UniChill V1 is an AWESOME chill oriented library created by Matthias Sauer and John Lehmkuhl. 260 patches of pure bliss for your musical adventures that require only Unify to work! Over 100 BPM Patches (Basses, Pads, Drum grooves, Keys and more!) plus 160 patches of Bass, Guitar, Keys, Lead, Pads and Plucks! While aimed at Chill, these sounds are useful in virtually any modern music genre.

 

CloudCity V1

CloudCity V1 contains Steel Tongue Drums (x2), 4 Urban style Hip Hop drum kits, 30 Percussion Instruments (multiple samples), Sub Basses, Granular Pads, Wind and environmental sound effects, Samples + phrases from Sunny Heartly playing custom built Native American flutes, Vocal Chops and more! A complete EDM/Dance/Chill/Ambient library.

Skippy’s BigBad Beats

300+ Recycled Drum Grooves created 20 years ago – still sounding awesome today! Also includes the grooves as audio loops.

UniScream 2020 (FREE)

Uniscream is a community programmed Sample + Patch library that is free for Unify. A Pipe Organ, screams (or course!), incredible drum and metallic hit samples recorded while in a huge mine, a pipe organ and so much more. Any day can be turned spooky with this library!

Libraries that require using an additional Plug-In to work:

DiscoverStation for the BBC Symphony Orchestra plug-in by Spitfire Audio

A very special library where we use the incredible capabilities of Unify to layer all 5 of the Strings section (or brass section or woodwind section or all 3 at once + more) across the keyboard so you can play the entire BBC Symphony Orcehestra in real-time! Tons of MIDI Files give MIDIBox a chance to show off what a single MIDI file containing 1 note played in whatever rhythm chosen can turn into an entire string section in one of many BPM patches.

Airwave Melodic Techno for the Serum plug-in by XferRecords

245 Patches for Unify and 133 patches for Serum (378 Patches total!) This library pushes Serum into new territory! Listen to the demos to hear what it is like when multiple instances of Serum (up to 8 in some cases) are running to make the entire groove of a huge mind blowing dance track – all in realtime and thanks to Unify’s multi-core management! Synthesis never sounded SO GOOD!

UNIFIED Libraries a Unified Library is where we save out each factory patch from a specific Plug-In in Unify format. This way you can easily combine any of the patches from ANY libraries you have to make new sounds. Instead of opening up a plug-in Interface to load patches, they are all there in Unify format. Right+Click to load ANY Patch into your existing patch to create a more complex PATCH!! Once you’ve start doing this – it becomes something you’ll do all of the time and wonder why no other plug-ins work this easily!

In order to use these Unified Patches, you need to own the specific Plug-In, Unify and have for the most part the VST2 version of this plug-in added to Unify’s “Known PlugIn” list so the patches will load without error. Some PlugIns only come with a VST3 plug-in, so that is the format we support in those cases.

PlugInGuru Libraries that come with Unify Patches:

Massive Power Pack V1: One of the earliest libraries I created was for Massive and it is still a BARN BURNER 10 years later! If you own the Native Instruments Komplete package (whatever version over the last 8 years) it has included Massive and Massive NEEEDS these patches! They provide a solid foundation of basses, pads, rhythmic patches and more to get Massive deeper involved in your productions!

TetraSonics by Tim Dale – brand new library released in July 2020. 256 Patches plus 10 of the 64 Multis plus 27 new Patches by Tim Dale and John Lehmkuhl that combine Unify and TetraSonic’s together for incredible bonus patches.

OmniVerse I: The Beginning – The first patch library for Omnisphere I ever created. Still one of the very best, imo!

OmniVerse II: The Dark Hope – The Ominous 2nd chapter of this Trilogy about the planet OmniVerse.

OmniVerse III: Aurora – the surprising magical Aurora light that saves the planet. The most cinematic of the 3 and includes bonus comic book and demo song by Amin Bhatia.

OmniChill – Huge Basses, plucky synths, cool BPM patches galore.

OmniPulse V1 – Nothing but Rhythmic Patches that are all tempo sync’able to your DAW! Something for EVERY Genre in these inspiring patches for Omnisphere 2 and as magical layering elements to quickly stack in Unify!

OmniPulse V2 PERPEKTIV – I made rhythmic Multis FIRST and then saved out the Patches for a super special 100% rhythmic library for Omnisphere 2 and works incredibly in Unify.

OmniPulse V3 CineFire – Rhythmic Patches focusing on Cinematic pulses, STRING Orchestra-ish patches (as close as I could get with the limited string samples in Omnisphere 2 as well as a TON of the phrases, tempo sync’d by using the Granular sample effect. A very cool and useful library!

MegaMagic PADS – My best seller by far now with Unify Patches. 28 Unique Pads that have 6 samples across the keyboard in both Pad (slow attack) and Synth (fast attack) sample maps. Again – you MUST OWN Omnisphere 2, the VST (VST2) version MUST be known to Unify and this library MUST be installed IN Omnisphere 2 for these patches to work.

ESC Personal Flavours for Omnisphere – 256 Patches, 50 Multis and 45 NEW samples are in this super diverse library for Omnisphere 2.5! Created by 15 world-class programmers (some of them sell patch libraries on their own websites), this is a special library because the programmers made sounds that match their personal passions in sound design and patch making.

Percussa V1 for Omnisphere 2| Unify – Mind Blowing Cinematic Percussion created with unique NEW samples and synthesis in Omnisphere – over 800 Patches/Multis that will give your productions a totally different flavor because of how the sounds are created. The Unify version is 

Bass Box for Trilian or Omnisphere – With 161 Patches and 110 effect “Rack” presets, there is some serious BANG for the BUCK in this library in the Bass department!

Repro 1 | Repro 5 Power Pack – 128 Patches of Yummy Analog Inspiration – 64 patches for Repro-1 (monophonic with an awesome step sequencer) and 64 patches for Repro-5 (8 voice polyphonic with MASSIVE Unison capabilities) in a single Power Pack.

FUTURE LIBRARY BONUS:

We’re working on an incredible library for Spitfire Audio’s BBC Discover Symphony Orchestra. This is a $50 plug-in that comes with 33 instruments (5 string sections, 5 brass, 5 woodwinds plus celeste, harp, glockenspiel, untuned orchestra percussion, timpani and more!). With the Spitfire Audio plug-in you can load 1 section per track…. however, with Unify we can load every section if we wanted into a single huge Patch! These 6 Bonus Patches show just the tip of the iceberg of what we’re working on for this library. With MIDIBox playing MIDI Files we’re going to present sounds you can interact with that will have your head spinning!

DOWNLOAD the BBC DiscoverStation BONUS 6 Patches

NOTE: You must own the BBC Discover Symphony Orchestra and have the VST (VST2) plug-in known to Unify.

  • The greatest invention since the DAW

    UNIFY is a gamechanger because
    1. it’s ultra-deep flexibility.
    2. it’s lightning fast

    Because of UNIFY
    a. All your vst’s, effects and sidechaining midi-modifers (arpeggiator, phrasegenerator, … ) work superfast together without noticeable lag. On my outdated pc I can now sidechain PhraseBox (Venomode) without lag/ delay driving multiple patches and effects. It has now become so easy to design you sounds on each and every level (midi,sample, effects)
    b. a fun and inspiring workflow that evolves like ever-growing multi-dimensional universes and later omniverses (= multiple universes) instead of the usual boring, inspirational-killing linear approaches is now possible in UNIFY because of it’s superior organisational abilities that allows you to save, rename, group and regroup everything you do. When you start a new project you have at your disposal these fresh (sub) categories that you designed yourself and work for you. With each project you can expand it as you go along. The more you used the more it will be fine tuned to your needs, and it is so inspiring.

    I was so happy that PluginGuru personally helped me(during the weekend!), when I made a user-error: he actually reads the technical support and will mention solutions on his YouTube blog! This company supports it’s customers👍

    p.s. I LOVE the GUI. But I use a 40inch 4k screen right in front of my keyboard tilted at an angle of about 75 degrees (I am not reminded of my desk job with a pcscreen that is not tilted at all). The GUI is very readable and calm (non-distracting) to the eyes, showing all the parameters you need to see.

    THANK YOU PluginGuru!

  • Absolutely Amazing!!!

    I am new to music/sound production and played around (rather frustratingly) with VST instruments and effects in Cakewalk by Bandlab before discovering this gem of a product. Very user-friendly interface and the YouTube videos from John cover all the bases of how to use it to its fullest potential. Great work on Unify, John and Shane. It is worth every penny. Looking very forward to the updates.

  • Just keeps getting better!

    John and Shane – you guys knocked this one out of the park. Thanks so much for this wonderfully creative and inspiring piece of software. I still have so much to learn about Unify but the videos and livestreams John has produced really help demonstrate the potential of this instrument. I’m using it all the time and starting to create my own patches which is great fun.
    Bought this on day of release and can highly recommend to anyone considering a purchase. Can’t wait to see what the future holds and where Unify goes from here.

  • Fantastic way to recreate and connect with all my plugins

    Title says it all. While some may say I can just use multiple tracks in my DAW, there is no way to create the sounds you can get from Unify. We need a lighter skin for us old guys. We are lucky to be at the beginning of a fantastic sonic journey. Strap in.

  • So beautiful!

    Thank you John and Shane,
    I am so grateful for your work. Not only did you deliver this mindblowing plugin called Unify, which in itself is a masterpiece allowing completely new ways in experiencing your other plugins, but you a continuing to expand it in ways that are just insane. Best example is this PolyBox MIDI effect. Just load the patch “SYNTH – PolyBox 8x Baby´s Dancing” and get lost in a total new way of sound. Increadible.

  • Amazing on so many fronts

    I’m normally a preset only guy. I haven’t had time to jump into sound design, although I’d love to. Unify is the first product where I spend equal time crafting new patches and writing with them (and vice-versa). It is constantly being updated with MAJOR updates that would normally cost a considerable amount. John’s videos are compelling and the community surrounding this product is incredibly supportive. This is how things should be done.

  • Great Tool

    I am more of a preset person (a bit lazy and bad eyesight ). But I am having fun mixing all my plugin, layer, split ……you name it. Thank you it’s great.

    Nothing is perfect, and I imagine you want to know about the ”irritants” .
    For a start the first library out would cost me +/- 300$ CAD Serum + library…… a bit to much for me.
    But I suppose there will be library using plugin I already have…..
    The second thing is more general, since Unify, plugin guru is really becoming a trans,dance…….. thing with Airwave taking much space. I am not a techno guy so the omnipresent kick drum ……. not for me. So I hope there will be other style of music with variations in drumbeats……. and a melody once in a while.
    I’ve been a follower since the beginning of plugin guru, love what you did for omnisphere and keyscape. Just hope there is still some of that in you.

    p.s. sorry for the weird English, I am french…….

  • Loving this app!

    I’ve had Unify now for a while (since the release) and thought it would be a good time to give my two cents on it now that I’ve used it for a while. I absolutely love it! John and Shane did not disappoint!
    Yes it may have a bug or two…but it’s evolving and just keeps getting better. I’ve been a long time user of Cantabile for live gigs and this will eventually be integrated into my live rig. For now I use it in Cubase 10.5 and it works as well as it does in standalone mode. I’m still experimenting with it in Maschine 2.
    The videos created by John/Plugin Guru are great and I can’t wait to see how Unify will evolve in the future…seems like every week there is something new!

  • New to this

    I’m moving to a new place and that means rebuilding my studio again. No time to dig in deep but I bought it right away.

    This is a great tool, needs the right support. If you keep that in mind, old farts such as myself will be able to do some interesting stuff with it. It’s so great I don’t even know what it looks like yet. So, what are you gonna do next?

  • Patches then Possibilities.

    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.

  • Mind-blowing

    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.
