Hi guys,

I just got a Genos.  :D

Today I played a bit with the Yamaha C7 Studio Grand and I was truly amazed by this voice. You can hear very distinct key noises at low velocities, among other details. This adds an amazing character to the sound!

I'm attaching a cover of one of my all-time favourite songs, Blackbird, using this voice. There is no post-production; everything was done in the Genos. I hope you enjoy!

Nice song, nicely done. But maybe even more important, it’s exactly the kind of recording that is great for this forum, because it so well demonstrates a feature of one of these keyboards that should be interesting to many.
On a side note, I have a CVP which has both the C7 and the Bosendorfer grands. Initially I loved the rich tone of the Bosendorfer and still do. But I have become progressively more and more impressed by the C7 for some of the reasons you said. The clarity and tone grows on you. I got a chance to play a real C7 once and the real thing is one heck of an instrument.

Hi Fabio,

Welcome to the forum.

You have a nice voice and play beautifully the piano.

If you wish, you could also post your song in this section of the forum dedicated to music played by the forum members:

https://www.psrtutorial.com/forum/index.php/board,5.0.html

That way more people would see your post and could listen to your music.

Regards,

Vinciane

Many thanks for the kind words, guys! This forum is very nice and welcoming. I am so glad I've found it!  ;D

I've been experimenting with the voices and I will be posting more stuff soon.
