Genos - General / Re: Saving mixer settings after a song has been recorded

Hi John,

Think of the 'Execute' button like the shutter button on a camera.

Whenever you press it, it takes a 'snapshot' of the settings in the checked groups as they are at that time.

If you later change the settings, however slightly, you need to take another picture to capture the changes!


Tyros 4 (SFF2) / Re: Re Premium Expansion Packs
« Last post by tyrosaurus on Yesterday at 10:52:04 PM »
Exactly how did you carry out the reset?

Did you do it from the 'Utility' 'System Reset' page?

If so, what items did you have ticked (checked) in the list?   Only a reset including 'FILES & FOLDERS' or 'EXPANSION VOICE' should affect the expansion voices.

Before I did a reset on turning the Tyros on a message would show Expansion Voices loading, now it doesn't.
Tyros 5 (SFF2) / Re: Adjusting polarity of 8 sliders on Tyros 5

I don't think there is any way to reverse this and I can't think of anything with a volume slider that works in a different direction from the Tyros and Im sure I would find it decidedly awkward to try and use it the way you describe.  ???

Why not post a registration bank that you say changes the pedal assignments to the 'wrong' settings, and another one which you think should reset them to your preferences.

We can take a look at them to see if we can identify what is going on.


Genos - General / Re: Why Did I Not Buy A Genos.

Someone made an excellent point, if they released the Genos in the Tyros enclosure, and called it Tyros 6, peoples reaction might have been different.  The Tyros line built up a solid reputation.  Each model was an improvement.. The psychology of a brand name is significant.  I can understand Yamaha's dilemma, over the Genos.  To me, certainly their teaser videos, reminded me of film companies philosophy for a bad movie.. Spend a lot on advertising, make the ad look real appetizing, And hope enough people see it opening week, cause attendence will drop drastically once reviews get out. I am not saying anything bad about the Genos.

I bought a Genos from the first batch that hit the East Coast of US.  It took some getting used to.. Yes things are different in some areas, other aspects are the same as Tyros.
Actually it's improvement is comparable to the each new model of Tyros line.  Upgrades, but nothing drastic. As I use the Genos more, I am finding more I like about it. I think it's the emotional aspect of saying goodbye to the Tyros line, and hello to the Genos line.

And the bottom line is, things have changed, get used to it.
Have fun😀😀😀
What money can buy... I'm almost famous now! A whole orchestra finally recognized my talent and is willingly supporting my unconventional improvisations, unstopably beating through novel harmonic progressions, and tirelessly helping deliver to the world an entirely new brand of subtly disparaging contra-rythmic explorations.
Their name ? The PSRs770.
At the grim prospect of being slightly outnumbered by a younger, hardly-fancier ensemble, they accepted a reasonable cachet to accompany me along what I'm sure will be years of worldwide entertainment.
I could somewhat play, although poorly, some violin, and some piano. I did take a year of trumpet, too, and loved it, especially with accompaniment tools like irealpro, but it's a bit too physically challenging; it's all about producing a nice sound. Other instruments I cannot play include trombone, guitar, clarinet. I enjoy some synth (waldorf blofeld) together with expressive keyboards, sequencers, although see it as a lonely musical pleasure.

After minutes playing with the PSRs770, randomly selecting a big-band rythm and picking some sax ensemble and trumpet, I couldn't help it : I was Quincy Jones conducting a shiny brass ensemble with Miles Davis reaching for new feelings in old tunes at Montreux... Of course that needed a bit of work and rehearsal after rehearsal the rythm was becoming better, the harmonic progressions landing somewhere, and the music I happen to love emerges, magically, and with tears in my eyes. For hours.

The public may not be ready for that kind of entertainment. Only your mother loves you that much, and will support your most repetitive experiments. Yet I must confess a prejudice: arranger keyboards restrict the field of possible music. What I'm discovering is that it essentially eliminates note combinations that are not music, and discovered how much creative control remains in your hands.

The PSRs770 was initially intended for my son. Why, sorry sonny! I get to be the star.

PS: many thanks to the community here for their messages about the 770, which helped trigger the purchase before it became too late. Saved me about 400€!

If you really want to "leave the pedals as set" then you might think parameter lock would be the convenient option, except that Yamaha does not see fit to provide a pedal option. Otherwise, unless you are happy to have the freeze button permanently on- with just pedal ticked in the freeze setup - make sure none of your registrations are saved with pedal ticked, or if they already are resave them with pedal unticked.

Happened to me and I had to go through this exercise of resaving all my registrations without pedal! It was a valuable, if painful exercise!
