Tyros 5vs Genos
« on: May 10, 2022, 10:42:06 AM »
Hi all

I am new here. Just wanted to get opinions. Is it worth upgrading from a T5 to a Genos?

I have viewed a few previews but need some input from experienced users please.

Thanks

Oh and p.s.  Any good place where I can find a nice style for Simply the Best - Tina Turner?

I like:
-- 76 keys
-- weight (even with 76 keys, significantly less than a Tyros)
-- 64Gb user memory
-- voices
-- touchscreen (much more intuitive)
-- playlists
-- songlists
-- 10 registration buttons
-- Search function
-- Song A and song B
-- Chord looper

Hope this helps,
Fred

"Worth it" is quite subjective. There are functional improvements, and of course it uses the new touchscreen interface, but it's an expensive upgrade. The best advice is to go to a music store and try one out, keeping in mind what you will use it for.

Personally, I consider Genos - and T5 before it - to be a "premium" product where a certain amount of the price - 25% or more - is charged "just because they can" for the privilege of owning the top model.

If you really want it, and can comfortably afford it, then go for it. In those circumstances, I don't think you would have any regrets. I certainly don't.

But if you would struggle to afford it you may not find it worth it.

Well.

I upgraded from T4 to Genos (never played a T5). Wow, it was a huge upgrade for me - worth every cent (for me). The sound quality is absolutly brighter and the drums are quite awesome. New effects and new interface was great, and I liked more keys mainly to split the keyboard in 3 parts.

I think you may try playing itself before any decision.
About styles, here in this site there are a lot of free styles.

However, for some songs, I create my own custom styles (it's possible to buy them at www.styles4k.com).

I watched a Genos demonstration at one of my local music shops. I was so impressed I went home and packed up the T5 and returned to the shop and bought the Genos. Never regretted the upgrade.

Hi @Eldred, to your question you will get the expected answers, that is of course logical and wellmeaned. In fact, it is nothing more than that you are satisfied with a car of a certain brand. That car still works fine (gets you from a to b without any problems, etc.), but a new car is A. newer and B. has a number of new gadgets. ... sometimes you take a somewhat cheaper version of that new model ... in the end you pay a price for it, but luckily everyone can decide that for themselves. ;)
My best regards,
Ton
