The Genos takes off from where Yamaha’s acclaimed Tyros range left off, bringing the arranger workstation to a whole new level of playability and realism. Featuring a touch screen and a wealth of knobs and sliders for adjusting sound in real time, the Genos is Yamaha’s greatest ever arranger keyboard.
The best sound quality ever on a Digital Workstation
Powered by specially developed Yamaha technology, the sonic quality of every Voice in Genos is beyond any other Digital Workstation you’ve ever played. Everything you hear, whether it be the beautiful CFX piano, the lush Kino Strings or the punchy Revo!Drums, it just blows you away!
-AEM (Articulation Element Modeling)
This technology simulates the characteristics of musical instruments. During a performance the technology sounds appropriate samples, in real time, according to what and how you play. Samples are smoothly joined and articulated—as would naturally occur on an actual acoustic instrument.
C7 Grand Piano
For the first time in any Yamaha product, the Genos features our newly sampled C7 Grand Piano Voice. It is great match with Pop/Rock/Jazz and other music.
Revo!Drum Voices recreate the authentic sound of drums. Even when playing the same key multiple times, the sound is always of a different nuance, making it incredibly natural and realistic.
From Reverb to Distortion, Rotary Speaker to Compressor, Genos boasts unprecedented DSP power.
In addition, Genos uses the same VCM technology as Yamaha’s professional high-end mixing consoles. Genos has the tools to create the perfect sound. Not only do the effects sound great, they look great too—with a stunning graphical user interface on the 9″ touch screen.
Vocal Harmony & Synth Vocoder
You can automatically apply various Vocal Harmony effects to your voice as you sing. If you’re a singer, now you can do your own harmonies; at the same time. On top of that you can use the Synth Vocoder to craft the unique characteristics of your voice onto synthesizer and other sounds. Even non-singers can sound amazing now. Karaoke anyone?
Expand your music
You can continually expand the onboard content of your Genos by creating and installing your own custom or purchased Packs. The scope of possibilities for new sounds and styles is virtually unlimited.
-YEM (Yamaha Expansion Manager)
YEM is PC/Mac software designed to manage the Expansion contents for Yamaha keyboards.
-Integrated Flash Memory
Genos includes 1.8GB of user flash memory with high speed reading/writing for your own Voices.
-Extra USB memory slot for data storage
Genos has three USB TO DEVICE ports (one on the panel, one on the back side, one on under the instrument) for you to keep the data.
Intuitive and fast control
Genos features an intuitive interface for music making and sound creation. Do this by selecting and changing parameters directly with the new 9″ colour touch screen.
While performing, you often need to act fast to access certain features. Choose from a range of functions to set to the 6+1 assignable panel buttons and with just a single touch. What that means is you can instantly recall your desired function. This is a serious time saving giving more time to play.
Genos features a variety of rhythmic backing patterns and accompaniments (called “Styles”) in variety of different musical genres. Styles feature sophisticated patterns to inspire your creativity. You give the idea and Genos will react to you.
High quality keyboard action
The FSX keyboard features a premium action with aftertouch. The keys are created in a high-precision manufacturing process for an incredibly durable keybed, enhanced key stability and “fast” action. The 76-key professional keyboard features enhanced touch response allowing for highly expressive and dynamic performances.
Genos has 216 Arpeggios to enhance your performance. There are a variety of arpeggio types, some are straight forward instrument arpeggios, others recreate strumming guitar effects and controller arpeggios automate Live Control by adjusting sound filters in realtime as you perform.
Recording function (MIDI/Audio)
Quickly record your performance as audio (WAV) or Standard MIDI File (SMF) with the Quick Recording feature. Also, more complex arrangements, Multi Recording features a fully functional 16-track MIDI sequencer with realtime and steptime functionality.
When you are happy with your recording, it can be stored to the internal User Drive or saved to USB Memory for easy sharing.
