A hybrid rig is any setup that combines your traditional backline - be it modelling processors, amplifiers, a pedalboard or a hardware amp sim device - and GENOME’s suite of PEDALS, TSM Amps, DynIR cabinets, 3rd-party IRs and STUDIO FX. In the setup scenarios below, we cover the main use cases in order to incorporate GENOME into your rig.
As GENOME is a plugin application, you will need to have the following studio peripherals available to create a hybrid rig:
For real-time playback, configuring your audio settings within your DAW is paramount. Within your DAW, navigate to the Audio Preferences:
To use your modelling processor’s built-in amp simulation, ensure you have disabled the unit’s onboard cabinet emulation and use GENOME as your Post Amp signal chain to apply cabinet simulation with our DynIR Engine and additional effects with the STUDIO FX Suite.
GENOME can be used with your physical amp collection to provide cabinet simulation and additional effecs. For this setup, please ensure you have a suitable load box available (like the Torpedo Captor or Captor X); the line (TRS jack) or DI (XLR) output of the load box needs to be connected into your audio interface and all DSP processing of should be disabled from the loadbox where applicable. If your load box is analog and has a built-in analog speaker simulation, please disable it if possible. If you can not disable it, do not use the DynIR component in GENOME.
In order to configure GENOME with your physical Pedalboard, first check if the last device in your Pedalboard’s signal chain is outputting a Line or Instrument Level signal. In the instance that this is an Instrument Level signal, connect this pedal to a compatible Audio Interface and engage the Hi-Z switch to optimise the interface for instrument-level inputs. Then, once GENOME is instantiated in your DAW, you can:
If your pedalboard features a cabinet simulation pedal (like OPUS or C.A.B M+), do not use the DynIR and the IR Loader components in GENOME.
