How many parts does the Genos control?
« on: December 01, 2017, 11:47:01 AM »
Is the architecture expanded beyond the 3 right hand parts and one left hand part of Tyros?
In demos I saw the volume sliders used to bring in parts.. and wondered if more than three parts are possible?
I use T4 as a drum machine. Playing my own acmp and bass. MIDI songs are my latest interest. If anyone wishes to share knowledge on MIDI songs let me know.

The standard panel setup gives you L, R1, R2 and R3 i.e. just the same as the Tyros.

I think in the demos they are adjusting the relative volumes of the (8) style parts and possibly the multipads.

If you want more then 4 parts.
Soon the V-console will be out to help you with your Genos.
Its a very nice program that gives you 8 additional Genos sounds.
They steal those sounds from the Song department trough a midi routing.

No, the number of parts is unchanged:

* Song play: 16 parts
* Style play: 8 parts
* Multi pads: 4 parts
* Panel voices: 4 parts

What V-Console does, is routing keyboard notes externally to the song parts. No magic.

Remember you can do this yourself just by connecting a cable from MIDI OUT to MIDI IN and setting up the MIDI send/receive parameters properly. This works on every S and Tyros model too.

Actually this is far from the same.
There is no integration when doing this.
The strong point of the V-console is the integration with the instrument.

You can reconfigure your settings with a single button on the V-console
Where changing midi in your proposed setup is a burden.

Where things are all about the ease of setting up, and sit and play.
There V-console is a blessing.
Because it not only works as a midi router.
But also adds many switch and filter and control options
right under the players hands.

Also it comes with a whole prelude of high end presets.

Youre quite correct, the V Console makes all this simple.

But if you just want, now and then, to create a mulitple layer for the one-off cost of about 2 - buy a midi cable and plug it in.
