I've been told by Yamaha that marketing people read our posts, but whether they act on our comments is another issue.

It might be possible they are reading some of our comments when they have launched a new keyboard.

Our positive feedback could be useful for their own forecast administration and to push their dealers to increase sales.

Hi Jeff, of course they have other priorities, the commercial priorities. But the people in charge must think in the clients, specially those that make free advertising in his gigs, and so on.

Agreed, pmedina. By design, the Tyros 5 is NOT limited to a living room keyboard. The earliest arranger keyboard I used for live gigs was the PSR 3000. It saved me hauling out my CVP electric piano and MC600 dual manual organ before that!

The PSR and Tyros series keyboards have served two roles: extended home use and live gigging machines for the semi-pro and pro user. That's a very wide clientele. Yamaha knows this. My guess is they monitor this site and others like it to guide them through the very choppy waters of research and development. The last thing they want is to produce a keyboard that won't sell. I assume there are literally millions of dollars at stake with the development of a new keyboard. They can't afford to get it wrong and one way to get it right is to listen to users of all shapes and sizes :).

I absolutely agree this forum and Yami giggers all over the world are offering Yami a daily promotional tour, free of charge. :P

But again, in the eyes of their Marketing Division they have other priorities.
They are much more interested in their sales results, competition, forecast, dealer control and launching new products.

For them the Tyros is history and comments are no longer useful.
Apparently, after 4 " updates " the Tyros Dynasty was a commercial success.

Now a real upgrade ( we guess ), called Genos, is their main concern.

Once the Genos will be in the market it might be possible they will read a few feedbacks written by our members but for them their daily tasks are
really important.

I believe our input might be interesting for them but not essential.  :'(

A seller or maker who doesn't listen to buyers don't sell very long. They will get out of business fast. My guess is that not even Yamaha can over look the musicians over the world not even like us here on this forum. If the customer's voice and opinion is not heard the production don't know what should be produced. That's very simple to me. Of course there's other ways to find out what people want but forums like this shouldn't be ignored either.

The final product called Genos is ready to be shipped ( by boat ) and will leave Japan very soon.

The Genos will arrive in September and will be presented to the Yami dealers.
In October ( or maybe earlier, who knows  ::) ) we will know how the Genos will look like.
Then we will find out if all our wishes and dreams will come true.

I am almost sure we will not be disappointed, as usual.  :D

Jeff, according to Mike Mixon's video, we have a completely different opinion. Genos is not the T5 replacement but just another keyboard. Are we back to square one :)? I'm confused.

Hi Lee,

Do not be confused.

The Genos will be or is the Tyros5 successor.
Why should Yami, after 4 years, continue the production of the T5 ?

The plot thickens-our own Jeff H. vs Mike Mixon! We will see who is right. I should point out that Mixon is still trying to sell the Tyros 5 so that might have a little to do with his remarks. Also, if the Genos, which is an apparently confirmed  trademark of Yamaha, is not the new arranger-what is it?

"Why should Yami, after 4 years, continue the production of the T5?"

Indeed, there are practical reasons why Tyros 5 must be retired. In particular, Yamaha will no longer make the proprietary integrated circuits in the T5, specifically, the SWP51L tone generator. Yamaha reissued the MX line in order to use the newer technology (SWP70) and to give the line a longer life. Not so for the T5.

Also, the expansion flash memory modules are end of life (EOL). If you buy a T5 during clearance sales, be sure to get your modules for free.

Looking forward to the new era -- pj

Hi Bill :


It is not so important who is right.  ;)
I can only tell you what I know.

We all know the Genos is the successor of the last highend kb which is the T5.
Why should Yami continue to produce their T5 after 4 years ?

A lot of dealers are no longer selling the T5. A real problem for them.
My own dealer meets the same problem. Even the S790 sales stopped, he told me last Friday.

Endusers are no longer interested in the T5 and are looking for the new, real upgrade, called Genos.

If Yami should tell the world what will happen in October 2017,  a lot of confusion should be avoided.
But Yami is the Boss. It is their policy to tell nothing.
I believe it is a big mistake but ... who am I !  ;)

When anyone says they've spoken with Yamaha and were told something, perhaps it depends on who they spoke with at Yamaha? If I remember correctly, last year one of our members spoke with Yamaha to find out if there was going to be a PSR-E453 model (since it hadn't been unveiled at the 2016 Winter NAMM as expected), and the person they were speaking with said there were no plans to make a PSR-E453-- but just a few months later, the PSR-E453 was unveiled at the 2016 Musikmesse! So just because someone at Yamaha says something doesn't mean they're in the loop-- or, even if they are, whether they're been instructed to confirm, deny, or just feign ignorance when asked questions about products that haven't been officially announced yet. We'll just have to wait a few more months to see what Yamaha unveils, and then and only then will we be able to look back on all this and determine what was "fake news" and what was a real leak. ;)

What's in a name?

According to Wikipedia in ancient Greece a Genos was a social group claiming common descent, so perhaps Yamaha is releasing the mother of all keyboards that has all the bells, whistles and technology from all the other top end keyboards that they manufacture now. Would that keep everybody happy? All you need is $45,000 and with a couple of finger swipes of the new hi-res retina display you can sound like anything you want, who needs buttons anyway when you have voice control.  :P :D

A Yamaha dealer or employee is not allowed to speak about new keyboards, remember ?

All are obliged to sign a letter in which they promise : no word about the new baby.

Believe me the video is only made to sell remaining
Tyros 5 kbs to avoid Yami are to take them back.

This action happened already in the past. Nothing new at all.
One of the reasons why Yami say nothing about the Genos.

Guys, the successor of the T5 will be available in October for sale.

Absolutely !!

I heard rumors of a T5 some years ago and talked with my local dealer about it. He called his of "top guy at Yamaha".
who told me "absolutely nothing new on tap from Yamaha" followed by a nice sales pitch on the T4.

I decided to wait and see  .. 3 weeks later, the T5 was announced !

Jeff has it right,
   All Yamaha employees have to sign NDA agreements. And if they break them it is instant dismissal for a start.
   Please don't take notice of someone who says they know someone who is well in with Yamaha as it will not be true.
    We all know we have to wait for official announcement and details. Be happy with what you have at the moment and play away.

Good question, Joe.

The Genos will be the successor of the T5 and will be available before the end of this year.
October 2017, they say.

On September 10, 2017 the European dealers will receive all product information.

After that date I am hoping Yami will show the public how the Genos will look like.

That is the only information I have ( given you ) and time will tell if my words are correct or not.

There is no alternative for me.
Nobody would ever believe me and I would feel like a fool.

I hope you understand my position and I am sure you will respect my decision. Thanks !

Jeff,

I think most members here understand that a thread such as this is somewhat speculative by nature. You have provided some information that you say is from a reliable source and you seem sincere as opposed to someone who is trying to "stir a pot." Should that information turn out not to be correct, I don't believe the majority would hold it against you. So I wouldn't worry about leaving or anything.

Hi Don! I`m wondering about scatvoices. Tyros have them in Multi Pads to play along with styles, but what a bout PA4X?


Regards Ingar  :-)

Hi Ingar,
The PA4X has Scat voices similar to Yamaha.  Whether they are as good or better, I can't say because I seldom used them on either board.  I know Roland and Ketron both have excellent Scat voices.  When I get back in from of the PA4X I will check them out more.
