After eight years of creation, the Dutch-Turkish DJ and producer Ummet Ozcan announced its own Genesis Pro synthesizer.
Genesis Pro can perform subtraction, phase distortion, FM, and ROM synthesis. It has three generators that can generate sounds independently or simultaneously. You can smoothly switch between them in real time using a special slider. A filter can be applied to each generator. Eight filter types and five saturation modes are available to choose from. Genesis Pro also has a 32-step sequencer, arpeggiator and the ability to load external custom MIDI sequences. It allows you to split these sequences between the top and bottom keys of the keyboard and even split the keyboard so that you can play one instrument with one hand and the other with the other.
There is a huge variety of modulation options. You can modulate any pen on the interface, and each pen is animated in real time to show you what is happening. The feeling “connect everything with everything” is associated with it, which is even more evident in the function of the modulation matrix and in the fact that five ASDR envelopes can be connected to more than 100 destinations.
Genesis Pro also has a mastering section (with a filter, limiter, more saturation and stereo extension) and an impressive set of fourteen built-in effects, including a whopping twelve types of distortion, an eight-stage phaser, a delay, ‘hyperspace reverb and a vowel filter (accompanied by amusing graphics on the center screen) ) To top it all, for ease of use, you can assign commands from CTRL + 1 to CTRL + 8, and there is a “Picasso mode” with a wide range of aesthetic settings, although it already looks very smooth.
The developer was in big hurry to release this plugin: I have noticed, that during installation on 32 bit systems it intalls sound content in not proper folder for next functioning LOL. (instead of putting it in C: \ Program Files (x86) it puts it in C: \ Program Files and then after run gives tons of errors that can’t find that the plugin can’t found the sound content).
I have installed everything with legit serial, then packed it and gave info on how to put eveeything on its place, so that it would load sound content properly.
The current version of plugin gives me next bug in Ableton (not necessary for another DAWs i believe) the message “Please get your license on oz-soft.com” that should be ignored by clicking ok. This message (checked on Ableton Live 9 + 10)) was present on both 64bit / 32bit platforms after original retail install with valid serial. Except putting the serial in installer i don’t see any copy protection – no any option for extra activation – no any license import.
STEP 1 (FOR 64 BIT AND 32 BIT)
- Put content of the folder “GenesisPro” (Sound Content) in path:
C: \ Program Files (x86 ) \ GenesisPro
Please note, If this folder with precisely the same name (for both x64 and x86) doesn’t exist at your hard – just create it and then put the folder with Sound Content inside!
FOR 64 BIT (x64):
Put content of the folder “x64” in your x64 VsT Path.
By Default – C: \ Program Files \ Steinberg \ VSTplugins
FOR 32 BIT (x86):
Put content of the folder “x86” in your x86 VsT Path.
By Default – C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Steinberg \ VST plugins
