Genos - General / Re: New TOTL Arranger from Ketron
« Last post by maartenb on Today at 11:33:38 AM »
While the short Ketron Event clip sounds very good, I am very cautious with Audio Styles. It's very inflexible. I love MIDI styles, where you can change the sound of a style track.

I made songs with the Audio drums on the Tyros 5 and now I can only play them without drums on the Genos. I am sooooo glad Yamaha stepped away from Audio Drums and started using Revo drums! These are the best of both worlds: they sound very realistic, yet are still 100% MIDI and you can do whatever you want with them.

Same for the voices: I would rather have Super Articulation than audio phrases. Full control, 100% MIDI.

P.S. When this new arranger is presented, will that moment be called a Ketron Event event?  :o I'll see myself out...  ;)

Genos - General / Re: Can a MIDI Song Control Voice On/Off?
« Last post by maartenb on Today at 11:22:19 AM »
When I made my complete cover of a song, I found the correct sysex sequence for all kind of actions by doing the following:
  • Press Record on my computer's MIDI sequencer
  • Do the action on the keyboard, like Fill B, or press a voice button
  • Stop the MIDI recording and look for the SysEx parts

In this way, I made very short MIDI clips, containing only one command. I had a chord track, and a separate track for triggering fills and style variations. It is very flexible.

Maybe you can use this method to find the correct SysEx messages for turning the voices on and off? You will probably find the same SysEx commands as PJ describes.

Hello Genos' Home Players :

In my perception I have the impression most Genos' home players are very pleased and happy with their Genos. :)
" The best arranger ever made by Yamaha "as confirmed by many Genos' owners / members of this Forum here.

It looks like these Genos' owners are not in a hurry Yamaha would present a Genos' successor very soon, am I right ?
I understand that feeling. I am still in love with my Tyros4 and ... it would be hard for me to say goodbye though.  :'(

Due to the competition pressure, it might be possible Yamaha will launch a Genos2 sooner than expected, I guess.
Wait and see.

Best wishes, JH

dear vitalog2010

 I have read your article re a new Genos 2 and what it should include to remedy the shortcomings of the Genos that we all play at present.

It is extremely well written, packed full of terrific ideas that Yamaha should adopt when the time comes when developing this new Genos; if and when it becomes available.

You have presented your opinions clearly and factually.

Well done my friend

Regards

Ron

Imagine a Genos 2, Genos 3 with audio styles with the capability of modifying them in real time!
Or the possibility to use more detailed voices!
