The Yamaha Genos Digital Workstation gives you creative power like never before. This next generation digital instrument gives you fast access to a huge 1700 voice strong sound pallet generated by Yamaha's powerful AWM sound engine. Add to this real-time controls, 60 gigabytes of solid state memory, built in WiFi, masses of connectivity and more, and you get what is undoubtedly one of the most powerful arranger workstations around.
Power with intuition
The Yamaha Genos was designed for the player to perform and create without anything getting in the way of your workflow and as such features a large colour touch screen and intuitive button layout. Instant manipulation of your sounds can be achieved via the 9 sliders, 6 knobs and 7 assignable buttons.
Genos allows you to access the sounds and functions you need quickly and without distraction. Important information is shown on the stunning LCD colour touch screen and it doubles up with the ability for you to glide through the huge voice and style library with ease as well as performing many other key functions without the need to scroll through endless menu's.
Breathtaking sound engine
Packed into the Genos is some 1700 voices spanning everything from finely modelled acoustic instruments including piano, organ, guitar and more as well as powerful synthesizers, breathtaking ensembles and new drum sounds powered by the incredible new Revo! technology. In addition, the Genos has a huge library of arpeggio types, expanded Multi Pads and extreme DSP power for a playing experience that will power beyond all expectations.
To capture such rich performances including vocal work, the Genos utilises a 60GB internal solid state drive making it the perfect home for your creations. 2GB of built-in expansion memory allows the Genos to grow with you, while 3 x USB-to-device sockets ensure you can take your data anywhere including WAV and MP3 for playback on any compatible device such as a computer or USB enabled audio system.
Scanning the back panel of the Genos you will find all manner of high-quality audio connectivity options both analogue and digital. Upgraded D/A converters are joined with a new digital output for studio usage, alongside new support for condenser microphones thanks to the built-in phantom power capability. For traditional digital connections a compliment of legacy MIDI ports are available as well as USB to host for connection to Mac or PC.
WiFi is also built in making the Genos compatible with Yamaha's Songbook+ app allowing two-way connection for live performance and music data organisation so that you have all of your preset song data to hand.
The Genos follows in a long line of Yamaha Tyros workstation keyboards and is effectively the replacement for the Tyros 5 keyboard but it is not the Tyros 6 as many predicted. The Genos is a noticeable move on from the previous Tyros keyboards for it to be differentiated from the Tyros name and establish itself under a new model.
