  • What is Genki Wave?

    Genki Wave is the ring that allows you to control sound with motion. Wave has three buttons, a LED display for visual feedback, micro USB charging port and an adjustable strap.

  • How do I get started?

    Wave is a Bluetooth MIDI controller, and needs to connect to your computer, tablet or another Bluetooth MIDI host. You can also use Wave in combination with WIDI Master by CME to connect Wave straight to your hardware that doesn't support Bluetooth MIDI.

    In order to get started, download Wave's companion software Softwave, to explore all of Wave's possibilities.

    From there you can connect Wave to your DAW of choice.

  • What functions does Genki Wave have?

    Wave has six functions that can be used individually or combined in any way you like. Each function has its own characteristics.

    You can assign any CC number, but make sure each function has an individual number.

    Softwave uses this number to communicate with your DAW.

    Some DAWs such as Cubase and Pro Tools have some of their CC values hard coded, so you won’t be able to use all of them.

    Tilt, Pan and Roll allow you to control parameters in a new way.

    Vibrato lets you add natural vibrato to your playing.

    Tap lets you hit any surface to trigger notes or samples.

    Click lets you use the buttons on Wave to send MIDI or Key commands.

    Additionally you can assign:

    1. PB (Pitchbend) to Tilt, Pan, Roll and Vibrato.
    2. Notes (C, C#, D, E, F etc.) when using the Tap function.
    3. Notes and Key commands/Shortcuts (cmd+T, R, f12 etc.) when using the Click function.

  • What do the buttons on Genki Wave do?

    The buttons on the Genki Wave come with default settings. These settings can be customized to your own liking in Wave’s configuration panel.

    Wave has 3 buttons: Up, Middle and Down. The Middle button activates and deactivates Wave. (Simply put you can deactivate Wave so you can scratch your nose without affecting sound every time you do it.)

    Holding the Middle button will Reset the movements to their starting point.

    The Up and Down buttons act as navigation buttons. You use them to navigate between the presets in Softwave. Try navigating between presets while playing to change the sound in Softwave and functions on Wave.

  • What’s the latency like?

    The latency generally depends on the host system you connect Wave to, and is limited by the Bluetooth LE standard.

    When connected to a MacOS, Windows 10 PC, or even iOS and Android, the overall latency can be around 7-20m, and around 7ms when using the Widi Master.

    Wave and Wavefront use a proprietary protocol instead of BLE, that achieves under 1 ms latency.

  • What computers are Genki Wave compatible with?

    In order to use Wave you need a computer that is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0. Wave uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) which was first introduced with Bluetooth 4.0. Additionally you'll need a PC computer with Windows 10 or a Mac computer with OSX El Capitan or higher.

    To see if your Mac is compatible to work with Wave:

    1. Click the Apple logo in the top left corner of your screen.
    2. Select About this Mac.
    3. There you'll see your Mac's OS X version. You need to have El Capitan or higher (v. 10.11).
    4. Click on the System Report... button.
    5. Navigate to Bluetooth in the sidebar to the left, it's under Hardware.
    6. Navigate to LMP Version down the list that appears when you've selected Bluetooth.
    7. If LMP reads 0x6 or higher, your Mac is compatible with Wave.

    To see if your PC is compatible to work with Wave:

    1. Right click the Start button and select Device Manager.
    2. In Device Manager navigate to Bluetooth and expand it (the arrow).
    3. If your PC supports Bluetooth 4.0 and is compatible with Wave, you will see Bluetooth LE Enumerator on the expanded list.

  • What is Softwave and how do I get it?

    Softwave is Genki Wave's companion software. Softwave allows users to fully customize Wave by creating their own presets and preset banks. It can either help users intuitively map Wave's functions to their DAW of choice or host their favourite VST3 and AU plugins. Softwave also has a built in sound engine and comes pre-loaded with fifteen curated presets so you can start making music immediately.

    - When using Wave with your DAW, keep Softwave open in the background.
    - Softwave is not a VST plugin.
    - Softwave does not work on your mobile.

  • What DAWs are compatible with Genki Wave?

    If your DAW has MIDI learn/mapping functionality, you should be able to use Wave within it. Check out the following list to see if your DAW is listed. If it isn't, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

    Genki Wave is compatible with Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, Cubase, Reason, FL Studio, Reaper, Bitwing, Studio One, Cakewalk, and NI Traktor Pro 3.

  • How many Genki Waves can I use simultaneously?

    The number of Waves you can use simultaneously depends on the device you are connecting your Waves to. The official Bluetooth specifications say seven is the maximum number of Bluetooth devices that can be connected at once.

    Through Softwave, you can connect up to two Waves at a time.

  • How long does the battery on Genki Wave last?

    A full charge takes 90 minutes and gives 8+ hours in constant use.

    A quick charge of 20 minutes gives you approximately 2 hours of use.

    In order to charge Genki Wave, connect one end of the charging cable to Wave and the other one to a power source, such as your computer's USB port. You may want to charge Wave before using it for the first time.

    In order to maintain a good battery life, Wave must be charged regularly. If storing Wave for a long time, please make sure that the battery is charged above 70%.

  • Can I use the Genki Wave on my iPad, iPhone or Android device?

    Genki Wave can be used as a stand alone MIDI controller with your iPad, iPhone or Android device or by using WIDI Master by CME which allows you to connect Wave straight to your hardware instrument, without the need of a computer.

    As a default, Genki Wave only has one preset in Standalone mode and the CC numbers Wave sends, and each movement's range is predetermined.

    You can configure how Wave behaves in Standalone mode, creating presets and customising everything to your liking, by using Softwave's Standalone mode editor, on your mac or windows computer.

    The LED display indicates whether Wave is active or not. A stable horizontal line indicates that Wave is inactive while interactive horizontal and vertical lines indicate that Wave is actively sending data to your device.
