Using External MIDI hardware with GENOME

Using External MIDI hardware with GENOME

For MIDI control of GENOME, use of your Digital Audio Workstation’s (DAW) MIDI control functionality is required for hardware control of those parameters exposed to your DAW as automation assignments.. Within GENOME, automatic and manual assignments can be controlled via a compatible MIDI controller.

Automatic Automation Assignments

The following set of parameters are exposed by GENOME for automation in the host DAW as automatic assignments:

  • The 10 User-Configurable Automation Assignments (A1 - A10)
  • GENOME IN Gain
  • GENOME OUT Level
  • Input Gate - Bypass
  • Input Gate - Threshold
  • Input Gate - Type
  • Lane A - Level
  • Lane A - Pan
  • Lane A - Mute
  • Lane A - Invert Phase
  • Lane B - Level
  • Lane B - Pan
  • Lane B - Mute
  • Lane B - Invert Phase
  • Bypass

These are the parameters that can be assigned to your external hardware controller’s control arsenal for MIDI control via the host DAWs MIDI control functionality.

User-Configurable/Manual Automation Assignments (A1 - A10)

GENOME also features 10 user-configurable/manual Automation Assignments (A1-A10) allowing you to take command of virtually any parameter within any GENOME component.


Automation Assignments can be managed in 2 ways.

First, right click any parameter in your GENOME component, select “Assign to” and choose an available assignment slot; once actioned, this will be exposed to your DAW and you will be able to automate this using your DAW’s internal automation options.


Alternatively, click the Automation button within GENOME’s Rig config pane to bring up the Automation assign / un-assign window. This highlights in blue all the automatable parameters of the GENOME component you are currently editing/viewing. You are free to navigate through effects while staying in this mode - great if you want to make multiple assignments within your RIG in one hit.

Don't need an automation assignment? Either right click an assigned parameter and select un-assign, or open the Automation assign / un-assign window for batch changes and click the X icon to terminate any assignments.

Like the automatic assignments outlined at the top of this article, these manual automation assignment parameters can be assigned to your external hardware controller’s control arsenal for MIDI control via the host DAWs MIDI control functionality.
