 Unify's built-in **MIDI Monitor** plug-in is a simple utility that helps troubleshoot MIDI issues by displaying MIDI activity. It's easiest to use in an Instrument slot, but can be used anywhere in Unify, as it passes MIDI messages through unchanged. Unify's built-in **MIDI Monitor** plug-in is a simple utility that helps troubleshoot MIDI issues by displaying MIDI activity.

     * Some CC numbers are traditionally used for special functions, rather than indicating actual //continuous controller// activity. For example, CC#0 is used for //bank select//, and CC#32 may also be used to extend the bank selection to a 14-bit value (aka "sub bank"). Unify is quite capable of interpreting even these "non-CC" messages to e.g. control Macro knobs, and furthermore, several commercial MIDI controllers (notably the KORG nanoKontrol) use such "non-CC" messages in this way.     * Some CC numbers are traditionally used for special functions, rather than indicating actual //continuous controller// activity.

 +===== Caveat =====
 +We recommend that you do not leave //MIDI Monitor// in a patch indefinitely, because the amount of text will build up over time, consuming extra memory and possibly bogging down your CPU.
