Genos - General / Re: Korg PA5X
« Last post by Lee Batchelor on Today at 06:08:41 PM »
Hi John :
Thanks for your comments.
You have the impression the Genos' sound quality ( in general ) is much better, right ?
That is very good news for Yamaha 's present high end arranger keyboard.
That might explain why Yamaha are not in a hurry to launch the Genos2 soon, I guess ?
Best wishes, Jeff
Very true, Jeff. Most of those who intended to buy a Genos have done so already. Yamaha is no longer in danger of losing potential Genos customers because there's another tool on the block. Of course, there will be a few who sniff out the PA5X and switch but I doubt those numbers will be a danger to Yamaha. Most Genos customers will wait for Yamaha's reply. If it's dismal, then things could change.

Some musicians will consider that using a style or an Electronic Yamaha sax SA2sample is "manufacturing" music
Very true but by "manufacturing music" I refer to those who solely depend on a large box of electronic tools to produce an end product that sounds good compared to those who have enough musical prowess and require very little added on tools to achieve the same thing. For example, the great singers and piano players throughout history have never needed pitch correction, voice shaping, quantization, or an overindulgence of EQ and compression to compensate for a lack of musical ability.

Using the Genos for a background or a solo instrument is just one tool out of thousands. The person sitting behind it must know how to make music and not depend solely on that tool to produce a decent end product. Like the old saying goes, "Anyone can play the notes but can you make music?"

They have embedded the Kronos, SV1, and Nautilus sound engine into the Pa5. 

Er not so quick...

first of all there isnt just ONE sound engine in the KRONOS but many - and of those the only one that applies here is the ROMPLER one.  The modelling engines - whether synth, hammond, EP , strings, etc are ONLY in the KRONOS and NAUTILUS ranges.

And as to what has been brought into the PA5 - its the addition of STREAMING from NAND "Disk" for certain big sample size instruments - pianos chiefly - from KRONOS.

But as I understand it - that streaming ability only applies to the ON BOARD factory sounds Korg have added to PA5 from Nautilus. Because of technical limitations and the size of the internal SSD ( NAND ) storage - there won't be any means to expand the PA5 with 3rd party (Huge sample size) libraries sold for the KRONOS/NAUTILUS family. The internal NAND SSD isnt that big and theres no ability to stream from external SSD because the circuit and bus tech wont support it.  There does seem a question mark as to how big exactly the internal SSD ( NAND ROM ) actually is - and how much would be free to install extra (huge gigabyte ) libraries in future - but my bet is that it wont support much in the way go gigabyte size libraries - if any -

So although its great to see some Nautilus instruments in there - engine wise and expandability wise - certainly disk capacity wise - this isnt NAUTILUS "Lite"

So I like so many am waiting with baited breath to see what Yamaha do with the next gen Genos.  And crossing fingers they do the "right thing" and include finally a USB output that supports multichannel digital audio.

My focus is music from the late 70s and earlier - back in a time where producing music involved playing the songs, not "manufacturing" them.

Agreed, John.

If Korg hopes to attract Genos users away from their keyboards, they'll be lucky to snag <1%. I sure hope Yamaha doesn't go the same route with G2. Their styles and voices are exactly what I need and if G2 improves on that concept further, I'll be waiting at the store, cash in hand! If they leave me hanging and focus on the younger EDM crowd who sing like robots with a bad cold, I'll be gone or at least hanging onto to my G1.

You are right on the number of files per folder
My Tyros 5 would not allow me to put more than 500 files per folder
I thought this was an'extra' with the Genos   Clearly not

The Genos allows 2500 per folder. Doesn’t mean you should max out, though.

Cheers,
Fred

Hi Lee
You are right there modern edm music is for a generation of sample button flashing light console canned music operators. Give me an "e" :-*
Todays singers all sound like Moaning Myrtles!!
At least we know with the Genos we can get warmer sound


All the best
John
