Yes that is the way the cookie crumbles. You choose what suits you best and an awful lot must have chosen Yamaha or this forum would have faded away by now.

I still think that the Genos 2 sound has the edge over the PAX5

Then saxes are second to none and the orchestras and guitars have been improved
The Genos has a more rounded sound if you know what i mean.
Then again it is only my opinion.
Genos Styles/OTS/Multi Pads / Genos2 style: missing voices?
« Last post by BogdanH on Today at 02:21:30 PM »
As we can see, there's quite a lot of interest on converted (revoiced) Genos2 styles, so they could be usable on previous keyboards (btw. I don't own Genos2).

I have checked only few Genos2 styles and it appears, that some styles are using voices which Genos2 keyboard doesn't have or at least those missing voices aren't published.
For example:
Latin section: 10s CubanPop -Phrase2 uses a voice (MSB-LSB-PCn=008-082-065) which doesn't exist on Genos2.
Ballroom section: Beguine -the same voice as above is used in IntroIII & EndingIII (in Phrase1).
Ballroom section: OrchestralTango -voice 008-081-48 is used in IntroII & EndingII (in Phrase2), which also doesn't exist.
.. and there are more.

Now I wonder... is published list of voices (DataList) incomplete, or are some voices used in styles actually missing?

And is that right? Then what is the meaning of the concept "Digital Workstation"? It's something I'm wondering as a Genos 1 user and as far as I can see the same tactic continues in Genos 2 and I honestly can't give any explanation. I would very much like to buy Genos 2, but the creativity here is also sadly pathetic. I should note here that Yamaha has now changed the name and now calls it "Arranger Workstation" but again it does not change anything. Korg continues to be at the forefront of creativity (followed by Ketron to a degree) and is the only company that, whether it is an Arranger or a workstation (Kronos, Nautilus, etc.), provides all the software tools and any processing the creator needs (onboard) even in the smallest models. Someone will ask me here: Then why don't you have a Korg? I have, but I'm sorry that Yamaha with such a good sound (perhaps the best of all companies), is so (closed) in terms of creativity.

in my opinion they use the concept digital workstation to emphasize that you can record your performances, a workstation doesn't have to have synthesis onboard to deserve that title in my opinion. It's obvious that yamaha with their arranger range are focusing on the players that just want to play their tunes without too much hassle. And the people I know with a genos 1 or 2 have selected a yamaha just for that reason, they find a Korg way too complicated and don't need all those bells and whistles on board. They just want to fire it up and play that cover song. And that is where yamaha is the king of all keyboards, no-one comes close when you want to play covers, the yamaha has it all.

The korg aims more on the people that want to dive in to each detail of a style or sound, they are more programmers type and the number of styles available is a lot less than the yamaha ones. Also all the styles are more sparse then the yamaha ones, so you have do more yourself to get an equally result.

That doesn't mean that yamaha shouldn't step up their game in my opinion, using that same old YEM program is shocking, I really didn't expect that in 2023 for their new flagship. Also the three new features are not that impressive, the new samples are a big improvement and also the new styles are sounding really good. I don't really understand why they added an FM synth in it without editing possibilities. They could have easily done the same with a new FM sample pack for the sounds if they wanted it.

But I really believe it's a good thing that we have two arrangers that are focusing on different areas, this way the users can decide what appeals to them the most for their musical wishes. They are both top of the line keyboards, so you can't go wrong with either of them.

I don't have any experience with the Ketron event, I've played on it in the music store, but that was too short to really get an opinion.

Can someone tell me at what level would you put the Genos audio Interface Against a Focusrite.
I can only get the Genos Audio interface down to 11 milliseconds latency at 512 but ideally i would of liked 5 milliseconds 256  at the least.
If you put the Genos audio interface to the same as a focusrite it starts to stutter.
I have not really been a fan of Steinberg drivers.

All the best

I need to first state that I don’t know what auto companion is, I have never used such a function, so my answer could be off track. But assuming you just have an accompaniment track with a few errors, here is my answer….
If the recording is midi, (which I think it must be on a s900) it is very easy to edit. If there are only a few errors, simplest way is to correct is to use the punch in/out method. Too long to describe in detail here, look up your user manual page 163. If you don’t have a manual you can easily pull it up on line, just type S900 Yamaha manual.
If there are a lot of errors, you are best to start over. Re record it. If your playing skills are limited, try slowing the tempo way down to make it easier, you can even use single finger chord mode if you are still struggling to change chords on time.  If you make a couple of mistakes then use the punch in/out method to correct them.If you can’t make the punch in/out work, post exactly what happens here, and someone will help.
If you slow the tempo, use single finger chord mode, and are only recording the accompaniment track and still can’t get it nearly enough right first time to just have to correct just a couple of errors …..what can I say…you just need a lot more practice.
