Using GENOME in Logic Pro

In the following knowledgebase article we highlight how to configure Logic Pro for use alongside GENOME.

Configuring Your Latency Settings

The term latency is common-place in audio production circles and relates to the amount of time it takes for your audio to pass through various stages of conversion and processing within a stereotypical studio setup. There are many factors which impact the latency of your production rig and these often include the following:

  • The time taken for your audio (or MIDI) signal to be sent into your interface or computer
  • The time taken for your audio interface to process the analog to Digital conversion of the source audio
  • The time taken for the internal processing of the audio within your DAW
  • The time taken for the Digital to Analog conversion from your interface for the resultant sound to be heard from your headphones or monitors

Latency is a critical consideration when configuring any audio recording or processing setup in order to minimise any lag or delay between your playing and the processed audio being heard. As such, it is vital to configure your audio latency settings as low as possible for the optimal user experience when using GENOME.

Setting Up and Configuring Your Audio Interface and DAW

  • As a starting point, connect your Guitar or Bass to a compatible Audio Interface and engage the Hi-Z switch to optimise the interface for instrument-level inputs
  • Then open Logic Pro and navigate to the Audio Preferences by following Logic Pro> Live > Settings > Audio
  • In the I/O Buffer Size field, pull down your Buffer size to as low as possible - as a guide, 256 samples should be sufficient when using sample rates of 44.1kHz. If when using GENOME you hear audible pops, glitches and clicks, this buffer size will need to be increased to compensate accordingly

Creating a Track and Loading GENOME

  • To create an Audio Track in Logic Pro, click Track > New Tracks
  • Within the “Choose a Track Type Dialogue Box” ensure the Audio field is highlighted and source your input for the related audio track and ensure this corresponds to the input in which you have connected your Guitar or Bass
  • When your track is created you have access to the stereo/mono button located next to the input button on the related channel str. In order to be able to work with GENOME you must ensure a stereo track is selected.
  • To load GENOME, click Audio FX on the related channel strip, scroll to the Audio Units Category and select Two notes Audio Engineering > GENOME from the cascaded list
  • Finally set your track monitoring to monitor the input by pressing the “I” switch located next to the Record Arm / “R” switch
