Clavinova CVP Digital Pianos / Re: CVP 809 available soon ?
« Last post by andyg on Today at 11:58:56 AM »
Mikf is dead right! Yamaha never put everything on one instrument.

CVP's don't have multipads. Keyboards never have the highest quality piano sounds that are in the CLP/CVP series. I asked the question st 'Head Office' many years ago and there was a sort of shrug of the shoulders and a 'That's the way it is' look! So a marketing decision, certainly, as there's no technical reason why they couldn't do so if they wished. I assume They won't change their minds on this, simply because they want some space between the CVP and keyboard ranges.

Genos - General / Re: yamaha genos speakers

Hi Eileen
Even 4000 for a keyboard deserves good speakers
I have realized cutting corners never pays in the long run.
I know that you are happy with the Genos speakers, but I found them very sub-standard for the price.
I find the Genos speakers tinny and not a nice rounded sound.
Well as I said ,that is my opinion only and hopefully not offensive to others.
I have found over time that  if you pay for quality, music is much better at lower volumes and does not hurt your ears and gives you that warm sound. :)

All the Best
John :)

Don't know anyone who paid any where near 5000 for there Genos and a lot are happy with there speakers. I find mine ample for home playing and only use larger speakers on Gigs.

Genos - General / Re: genos automatic turn off function
« Last post by stephenm52 on Today at 11:46:04 AM »
Elaine,

You're welcome.  Based on your post I just set the Genos to turn off in 30 minutes following the protocols in this thread.   I'll let you know what happens.

Ah, I had forgotten about DingeDong, it's a great tune.  I remember first hearing Michel Vonken playing that tune, once I heard it I just had to learn it.   Have fun with your Genos :)

Hi
Get yourself some decent full range speakers .
You will not look back.
The Genos system is like a transister radio for sound and too expensive for what it is .
300 for a mediocre system  is throwing money away. Also comes with cheap battery wires, unbelievably making mugs of us.

We pay 5000 nearly for a decent machine and a 1000 on speakers is cheap in comparison.
700 more than Genos speakers
BUT!!!! they will last you through the next three or four Genos'es and you will make that money up  and more by then.
To me that makes common sense.

Well this is my opinion only  :) 8)

I am still torn between the Genos and the MODX....

One day i am more impressed by the Genos
The other day i just love the MODX8

I am in a good place to.
Glad i don't have to choose.
But if i had to choose, i would choose an 88 key Genos.



Although I'm happy with the 76 key Genos, one with 88 would suit me fine too.

Genos - General / Re: Genos registration numbers fading away !!!!!!
« Last post by EB5AGV on Today at 11:26:52 AM »
I do the same as Eileen. I only use a microfiber cloth and warm water, well wrung out. My numbers are stable for the moment, touch wood. (Lee is currently rubbing his head :).)

We have here so far only two known cases of fading numbers so, yes, it may be just some isolate cases. But, sadly, I think that it is a matter of time all units will begin to manifest the problem if, as I suspect, is a manufacturing glitch. I also care a lot my Genos and don't use anything which may damage its surface, just distilled water (so there is no residue) and a soft cloth. But even doing that, when you press any key, there is some light abrasive action on them by our fingers, even if slight, which will remove some paint molecules... When you repeat that thousand times, if the material is not strong enough, it will fade. I have seen that on professional items which painting on them, as I worked on R&D on an electronics manufacturing company which used some painted keypads. Repeat use can kill even the most resistant paints.

And, on Genos, there is no protective layer over the buttons. Which gives me a hint  :)... Perhaps placing some transparent film on the keys will prevent them to fade. If we could find a suitable material, soft, easy to cut... Similar to old (non-glass) mobile phones protectors... May we have a chance to protect them before damage is done?. I would sacrifice somewhat (it could be made so it would be almost invisible) the looks if they are durable enough. At least for most used buttons, as registration ones. Just an idea!  ;)

Hi Al

You need to download the Computer Program Exp Manager form the Yamaha Download site.  There are also 2 short manuals further down the page.
