Yamaha’s replacement for the legendary Tyros dynasty is here. Genos is an incredible new instrument for everyone to enjoy.
Along with the new look and layout, the most obvious visual difference between Tyros and Genos is the large touchscreen. The new screen means a new operating system, but that system has a familiarity that will please existing Tyros owners, and works in a logical way for newcomers. New tone generation means that the new voices sound amazing and the existing ones sound fresh and new. The upgraded DSP effects and digital to audio converter means that Genos always sounds amazing through the GNS-MS01 speaker system.
The GNS-MS01 speaker system has been especially designed for Genos. It now features a one-lead connection to the back of the instrument, and it sounds fabulous! The L7 stand is renowned for its stability and robustness. The new generation L7-B has a cool black finish to complement your Genos. Many of the 550 styles are brand new images. The styles you know are there too, of course. They also have a much more “live” sound. The “Revo” drum sounds are so good, that Yamaha have retired the Audio style technology.
One Touch Settings have been completely re-written from scratch. That means the home player has a superb palette of sounds instantly for any type of music. Genos has redefined what a workstation keyboard should be.
- Richard Bower - Yamaha Keyboard Specialist at Edinburgh Store
This keyboard is unlike anything on the market today. It has some fantastic piano voices, guitars, synths and much more. The styles are great and sound massive with the new speakers and subwoofer. The playlist feature is a new edition to this keyboard and sets up a style for you to play classics such as game of thrones and eye of the tiger. The touch screen makes this keyboard easily accessible, being able to get to the sounds and styles you want with the touch of the button.
All in all this keyboard is absolutely phenomenal and I would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for an arranger workstation.
