How do I get the GenesysControl plugin?

The Neve GenesysControl plugin is available for a 30-day trial using a trial license which starts on the date of the trial license key being generated and sent to the contact email submitted below. The license key must be entered into the ‘License’ details in the Neve Genesys Desktop software to activate the trial period for the plugin. During the trial period, the plugin is fully functional. The plugin will cease functioning at the end of the trial period, and a Full License must be purchased and registered with the Genesys or Genesys Black console for continued use. A trial period License Key is free and issued only once per console.

To function, the GenesysControl plugin requires a correctly connected Genesys or Genesys Black console, which has a valid license registered to it. Without a correctly connected & licensed Genesys or Genesys Black console, the plugin will run in standalone mode (the Dynamics meters will increase in cycles), and the controls may be altered. Still, they will not affect either the DAW audio/track/automation or the analogue settings in the Genesys or Genesys Black console.
