Here you have the official news:

https://europe.yamaha.com/en/news_event ... on-up.html

For me the most exciting thing is this:

It represents Yamaha's commitment to not stand still as we continue to expand an already incredible musical instrument... and the journey is not over.

That ability to connect an external screen is going to be very welcome for many Genos owners :)

Hi,

I'm very sad about the update. It's actually nothing. Good for nothing !!!!
What I heard from experts from more than one place, and moreover, Yamaha developers did nothing.
For example:
- NEXT is still unresolved
- When switching between the A and B players with the potentiometer, the text must be disconnected separately (this is known by Korg for 100 years)
- I don't understand what three blinking (START / STOP buttons, two on the display) ?????
- I have been using the text keyring in a computer store shop with a USB converter (this is not a novelty)

So that's nothing for me. It's still difficult for stage work. I mainly use it on stage. You can still use GENOS as a room instrument. One of my friends has been telling you for a while that GENOS2 will be the big thing to learn from this. And it won't take long to get along. We don't have great hopes for GENOS. They have other plans for the Yamaha design team. Get to a level like Apple. Good darling good big nothing. Food for thought.

I'm starting to believe them.

Yours faithfully:

Zotti

I think we can't lose the point: this is a +0.1 update, and it was announced like that. So it is mostly maintenance and small improvement. Is my Genos better today, after the update, that it was yesterday?. I guess so :)

And, if we trust Yamaha, 'the journey is not over' for Genos. We will see 2.0 eventually. If not, I will mostly agree with you. But not yet.
