How to Use GENOME with the ReVolt Series

How to Use GENOME with the ReVolt Series

GENOME has been specified to work seamlessly alongside our all analog amp simulator series, The ReVolt Series.

Considerations for all ReVolt Series Setup Scenarios

As GENOME is a plugin application, you will need to have the following studio peripherals available to integrate ReVolt Guitar or ReVolt Bass into a GENOME-centric workflow

  • An audio interface with suitable line level inputs
  • A Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) in which GENOME can be instantiated
  • Suitable cabling to connect ReVolt Guitar or ReVolt Bass to your audio interface

For real-time playback, configuring your audio settings within your DAW is paramount:

  • Make sure you are using the latest drivers of your audio interface for Windows; if your audio interface does not have dedicated drivers, use a third-party ASIO4ALL driver
  • Set your buffer size and latency to as low as possible; when using GENOME if you experience pops and clicks while playing, you will need to raise this buffer / latency setting until these non-desirable artefacts are no longer audible. For guides on setting your audio preferences in all mainstream DAWs, please refer to the following articles:
    1. "Logic Pro"
    2. "Ableton Live"
    3. "Pro Tools"
    4. "Cubase"
    5. "Studio One"
    6. "GarageBand"
  • Finally, if your interface features a zero-latency monitoring/direct monitoring option, please ensure this is disabled to avoid hearing your GENOME-processed and DI signal simultaneously

Technical setup

Connect ReVolt Guitar or ReVolt Bass’s ¼-inch OUT (TS jack) or DI (XLR) output into your audio interface. Create an audio track in your DAW and configure its input and output routing in accordance with the input and output specifications of your interface. Load GENOME on the related audio track to apply the plugin's effects.

Using GENOME in a Setup Where ReVolt Guitar or ReVolt Bass are Used Standalone or With Other Pedals

In this setup, ReVolt is sending the full guitar/bass signal from any one of the 3 channels; note this may also include any additional pedals either front-loading ReVolt or placed within ReVolt's FX loop. The signal is sent via ReVolt's DI (XLR) output. On ReVolt, set the CAB SIM switch to "Off" / O. For optimal tonal results, do not use the following Components in GENOME:

  1. TSM Amplifiers or CODEX
  2. Drive PEDALS

You can then use GENOME’s DynIR cabinet simulation and suite of Post FX to build on your tone alongside GENOME’s dual lane routing options to create stereo cab and FX rigs.

Using GENOME in a Setup Where ReVolt is Configured in the 4-Cable-Method With an Amp

In this setup, ReVolt adds 3 channels to your amp's channels via the 4-Cable Method switch. Connect the DI (XLR) output of ReVolt to your audio interface to send all the companion amp's and ReVolt's preamp channels to your DAW. For optimum tonal options, set the CAB SIM switch on O.  For optimal tonal results, do not use the following Components in GENOME:

  1. TSM Amplifiers or CODEX
  2. Drive PEDALS

You can then use GENOME’s DynIR cabinet simulation and suite of Post FX to build on your tone alongside GENOME’s dual lane routing options to create stereo cab and FX rigs.
