Genos - General / Re: Genos II or Genos I 2.0. Your take?

I believe Fred is right and hopefully a new Genos update will follow this year yet.

It would be great if this new Genos update will be launched during the 2019 German Musikmesse in April.

Cross my fingers for all the proud Genos owners.🌹

Take care, Babette

Bass guitar in Genos is different and it gives a different sound to the drum. In addition, the drum ratio in Genos is somewhat lower than the other strips. A little bit of work in Drum Edit gives you such results. From my experience, a small number of rhythms in Genos have been processed worse than the 70'ScatLegend.

Genos - General / Re: Genos II or Genos I 2.0. Your take?

Would Yamaha leave Genos I mostly as is and release a new Genos II or will they do a big overhaul on current Genos I software (let's call it v2.0)?
Personally, I will wait untill a successor of the Genos hits the market. I think the Genos has too many hardware flaws, which really should not exist on a EUR 4000+ device: keybed bends/flexs way further down when playing than the T4/T5 (or even a PSR-S), the weird curved and unpractical backend, buttons losing their print, not a very good display with fixed angle. And it still misses features I'd expect on a modern TOTL keyboard, like balanced outputs.

I'd really like a 76 key instrument with the power of the T5, but lighter and more compact, because the T5 is really to bulky to carry around two times a week. But to me, the Genos does not seem durable enough and does not deliver enough new features to justify a EUR 2000+ upgrade price from a T5 76. So I'll happily wait until the Genos 2 / II arrives and hopefully, by then, my bank account will also be big enough  :)

There will be a Genos II in 2020. Yamaha expects that enough customers will switch to the new model, Genos II. That is good for financial survival, very legitimate. There will be another bugfix for the Genos I this year. To keep the customer happy, probably with a single software surprise. The Genos II will have a larger touchscreen and replacing some knobs and sliders and Yamaha, owner of Cubase, will use more software features from Cubase 10/11 in the Genos II. Then comes a Genos III and IV and probably the last to be a Genos V. Whoever lives then takes care of it.
Ohh.., in the meantime, do not focus on what you miss, but enjoy what you have! ;-))

Hi everyone!

New to the forum from Ontario Canada. Currently playing on a Genos and Nord Electro 5 HP in my band. Still trying to get my head around the Genos and have almost had it for a year. Looks like this seems to be a very informative site and hopefully will assist me with diving deeper into the Genos.
Yamaha Keyboards - General / Genos vs PSR S970
« Last post by rodrigo.b on Today at 06:02:20 AM »
I want to compare a Genos with my PSR S970, but I need some help because I don’t have a Genos. I see that Genos share some styles with PSR S970, so i will be very grateful if someone can send me a high quality audio recording of some styles, maybe only play one intro and one end, and I will do the same on my psr s970.

Here are the styles that I choose:

- Salsa
- Afrocuban
- Bossa Nova
- 70’s Hard Rock
- Power Rock
- Live Soul Band
- 70’s Chart soul
- 70’s Tv theme
- Flamenco
- Contry Blues
- Latin Party Pop
- Gospel Brothers
Thank you in advance for the help

I would be happy with just a re-designed graphic user interface. Just to relieve the monotony. Like some cell phone manufacturers do. A new GUI. Updated sounds and features would be the best.

My predictions are:

1. There won't be a "Genos II" for at least the next three years.

2. There will be a "Genos 2.0" OS update released this year, which will incorporate new features.

... Here are the short demos, which are better heard on a pair of good headphones,
in order to differentiate the sound better.

Best Regards.

I hear a difference in the high-hat rather than the snare.  It's subtle difference.  Both sound good to me!
