Joy- stick; touch screen, 6 programmable buttons, we don't know much else because no one here has one yet in their possession.

Also Real Reverb +. It's the same of Real Reverb but boosted on mid frequencies.

How about REVO Drums? New Keybed... and was the VH2 improved at all?

There has been some misinformation about this. The SX900 has some new samples from the Revo drums but it does not have the wave cycling technology.

I have to say that even though wave cycling is a selling feature on Genos, in the demonstrations of it...I never really heard a noticeable difference. Maybe if I had a Genos, it would be more apparent.

I think the fact that the drum samples from the Genos are used in the SX900...will make a big difference in the quality of the drums...rendering the wave cycling option moot.

Hi jingleman,
as a Genos owner I can say that Revo wave-cycling is slightly noticable when you do a fast snare hit series, without change velocity. In my opinion, this technology is great for Vintage drum kits and percussions like maracas or cowbells.
Anyway, I have attached a song made on Genos using the Vintage Open drum kit. Snare rolls are on the same velocity, and Revo should avoid the "machine-gun" effect.

Another feature that is in SX700-SX900 only (actually) is the ability to edit a song from the panel and save all changes, while actually in Genos you must open the song with Multi-Recording option and then make changes and, if you forget to go through it, you LOSE all changes. I remember that this feature was also in Tyros series, so Yamaha...you know what you have to do in next Genos update!

This video shows the feature on SX900 (I can't understand what the guy says, but images are clear): https://youtu.be/jweiHG6zqY0
