Hi, The 3 things that I really love: SA2 Voices (they are very easy to play) Revo!drums technology and the musicality of the styles.
The 3 things that I donít like: You canít create MegaVoices or SA voices, you canít import samples directly on the keyboard, you donít have a dedicate function to create Strum patterns for guitar parts on the style.

MULTI PAD CONTROL
1.   They currently donít remember the last chord applied and always reverts back to C-Major when played on their own. Letís say you are playing a song in D-Minor and would like to stop the style, play freehand guitar and only start a PAD and continue playing the guitar, although the song is in D-minor the PAD will play C-major Ė this is not good. The PADs should remember the last chord applied, just like Korg keyboards.
2.   It should be possible to turn on/off PADs individually. On Korg keyboards, you can just select the PADs you want turned on and turn off the ones you donít want without having to stop the whole lot.

DATA WHEEL
1.   The primary job for the wheel needs to be to control the tempo. If a window is open it can then control whatever window is open.

SMOOTH TRANSITION
1.   Unfortunately, in many situations, the smooth transition does not take place; changing a OTS or a Registration can create a loud ugly sound due to the effects or sounds saved within each OTS or Registration. Would be great if this is fixed.

Data wheel - No! the primary job for the wheel has to be to control the value of whatever parameter you just selected on the touch screen.

Which is handy, because that's what it does :)

Just press a Tempo +/- button, and you'll get a window that makes the data wheel control the tempo.

Derek, when there is no window open the data wheel does nothing. I wrote, if any window is open (whatever it may be) then the wheel can control that, which is completely logical. But when there is no window open the data wheel does nothing, that's when it would be handy if it controlled the tempo.

I don't agree. If I touch a value on the screen - say a slider on the mixer page - then the data wheel controls that slider. No windows are open, but there's a border round the selected widget.

Multi Pads can be turned off one at a time. IF you hold down the mutli pad button and select stop It leave the other pads playing.

Hi Eileen, a small correction, you have to hold down the STOP button and press the pad number you want to stop.

Like
- sounds, espescially the sa2 voices and ensemble voices
- community and user created content shared freely
- the interface, both hardware buttons, knobs etc as well the screen, make operation very intuitive

Dislikes
- onboard edditting is to basic, there should be a piano roll for midi edditing, and the whole yem should be part of the keyboard allowing for real time edditing, and edditing of other things like the arps is not possible ar all..
- connection with the outher world lacks for a 2020 keyboard that claims to be a workstation.. no audio/ usb, midi has man limitations, daw and ipad integration are lacking. Everything inside the Genos breathes stand alone
- many things can not be saved, like OTS sets, user effect settings, and ARPs should have an option to save user sets as specific save items, with the same options like we now have for saving styles sounds performances and songs.

I like the idea behind this topic, it forces people to indicate the biggest problems.. but also the top highlights

There is another thing i must name tough, it doesnt make my top 3 yet its a major concern..
I would love to be able to assign more sounds to the keyboard,,... or have more then 4 multipads..
It would be awesome if yamaha allowed us to assign song parts for this..
Just like we now can reroute the dsp effects in the song parts..

Why do most people only post negatives?
The OP asks for 3 possitives and 3 negatives?

This allows people to see things in perspective..

Forgive me for asking, but how does this topic fit under the heading of "Genos Demos"? I believe it would have been more appropriate in the General section for Genos.

Dislikes:

1.Missing Song Syncro Start Off/On . Neded for all players who use MIDI songs and style together for play. At this moment on Genos and SX is almost perfect ,just need a little  to complete that functions:

MIDI play and style play at same time,MIDI stop style continue play,Midi start again style ""CONTINUE"" play.

2. Missing:  Note shift to all individuals tones +/-12 separate for R1,R2,R3

3. Need 10 GB sampling room.

2: 10 of Registrations memory botons.
3: Touch screen

Tyrosman,
It is in the general section now but the post originally started in the Genos Demo section and was changed when I queried the appropriateness of the posting.

Precisely,

Seems to many people overhere only visit the general section...

You made a good call, as it was clearly in the wrong place 👍




So now everyone should go back on topic, naming their 3 tops and 3 downs before making any other comments 😜

LIKE:
1. Touch screen( thought I never would say that!!)
2. Great sound and intuitive OS.
3. Sleek design.

DISLIKE:

1. File managing system. Folders should be in a different colour, and it should be easier to go beck and forth between foldere
   without being just flung beck at the root of the USB stick.
2. The awful 8-pin DIN contact on the subwoofer. Easy to break, difficult to put in, a pain in the but.
3. Too little contrast of the display. And it should be even more tilted towards the player.

Final comment. I love my Genos, my lovely black monster keyboard :)
