How does GENOME handle mono & stereo signals

How does GENOME handle mono & stereo signals

In the following knowledge-base article we highlight how GENOME is configured for Mono and Stereo Signal processing both at the input stage and within the component level processing of the application. 

GENOME's Input Stage

GENOME (V1.03) has been configured to process a Stereo or a Mono signal at its input stage. There are dedicated options to select how a Stereo signal (via a stereo track in your DAW) is processed into a compatible Mono source. In order to configure GENOME’s routing of the related input signal into the plugin, first reveal the dedicated Input Routing dropdown menu by clicking the icon next to ‘IN’ in the top left portion of GENOME’s Global Parameter Pane. The following options are available: 

  • Stereo: In this instance, the stereo signal at the input is processed in stereo by GENOME
  • Mono LR Mix: In this instance both channels of the Stereo signal are summed to a Mono signal
  • Mono from Left: In this instance GENOME takes the left channel of the Stereo signal only
  • Mono from Right: In this instance GENOME takes the right channel of the Stereo signal only

Mono and Stereo Signal Management at a Component Level

Within GENOME, the Mono source input can be processed into a Stereo signal via Component-level Stereo processing. Within GENOME’s RIG Builder pane and Lane outline, you’ll notice between component slots there are single and double lines - this simply indicates whether the component is fed by - or sending - a Mono or Stereo signal. This is a handy reference as GENOME automatically processes all Mono-to-Stereo signal conversion so you stay focussed on dialling in the perfect tone.
