Genesis3 (discontinued)

Larger Images
The GENESIS3 is ideal for the professional or project recording studio, it places all the GENETX sound creation and processing flexibility in a compact desktop unit. The GENESIS3 includes a knob based editing interface, eight segment display, stereo outputs, and 48 user and 48 factory presets.The SPDIF digital output provides a direct interface for recording in the digital domain. The Dry Track feature taps the signal before the effects processing and sends it out the SPDIF output while effected signal can still be monitored out the 1/4" outputs. The MIDI capabilities provide easy computer- based editing functions, and virtually unlimited preset storage. The Genesis3 can be quickly converted into a live performance piece with the addition of the optional DigiTech Control X foot controller.

Genesis3 FAQs

GenEdit will not connect with my Genesis3.
If you are having trouble with genedit detecting your device, take the midi
out from the genesis 3, connect it to the midi in of another device (i used
a behringer 1010 foot controller) connect the midi out of this device into
the midi in of your computer.

Can you make a hypermodel from a hypermodel?
Yes, you can. Once you have created a hypermodel, it can now be selected as either a red or green amp and combined with another amp to create a second generation hypermodel.
Why is modeling cool?
Modeling gets you as close to the sound of your favorite amp without actually having to own one, thus saving you thousands of dollars and lots of space.
How is modeling limited?
Modeling is essentially an endpoint. Any given amp model offers a specific sound
with limited control over that sound.
Do GENETX products still do modeling?
Yes, they do. Each GENETX product has factory based models of popular modern and vintage amplifiers.
What does the Warp control do?
The Warp control allows you to combine the characteristics of any two amp models in varying ratios. This resultant ratio can then be saved off as a new hypermodel.
How many hypermodels can I save?
The GNX 1 allows you to save off 9 user hypermodels within the GNX1's internal memory with the GENEDIT Computer Editor Libarian software you can save off as many hypermodels as your hard drive will allow. These can then be imported to the GNX as needed.
Isn't Warp just pan or a crossfade?
No, warping extracts the characteristics of each amp and combines the two into a completely new sound. Whereas panning or crossfading simply increases the level of one while decreasing the level of the other, while not actually combining their actual characteristics.
What is cabinet tuning?
Cabinet tuning is as if you actually changed the size of the cabinet and speaker system's physical dimensions, making it larger or smaller. This changes a cabinet's response and resonance characteristics.
Can a I warp between 2 amps in real time?
Yes, This can be done either via the expression pedal, internal LFOs, or MIDI CC control. There are three different ways you can warp: you can either warp between amp models only; you can warp between speaker cabinets only; or warp between amp/cabinet combinations.
How does the GNX differ from the Genesis?
The GNX is designed primarily as a live performance system and the GENESIS 3 is designed primarily for recording. Although the GENESIS 3, with the optional foot controller, can be used for live performance as well.
Can I use Genetx products as a multi-effects?
Yes, every GENETXs product is equipped with a vast library of studio quality effects.
When I create a hypermodel does it sound good?
We're confident that the combination of any two amp models will produce exciting new sounds and we absolutely encourage you to experiment. We also invite you to join our online community of users in sharing your creations with others.
After downloading updated firmware, my unit shows "TOE DOWN" in the display, what do I do now?
TOE DOWN represents a prompt to calibrate the pedal. Rock the expression pedal all the way in the forward position and press the footswitch that is flashing, (On GNX2 this is the EFFECT footswitch, on GNX3 it is the CHORUS footswitch) The diplay will show "TOE UP" Rock the exression pedal back towards you and press the lit footswitch (Delay) It now shows VSWITCH, push the pedal forward and put pressure on the toe, then back the pedal off again.
