Genos MIDI

Unread post by Tomotom56 » Thu Aug 29, 2019 10:53 am

Yamaha have just informed me that Genos has no MIDI through caperbility? Not through the USB/device anyway. I send a midi message from Unrealbook which selects a registration memory. I want that midi message to continue on to select a Rackspace on Gig Performer/MainStage. Any ideas from the midi gurus out there?
Many thanks.
I can use the iRig midi interface which had a through port but I was hoping not to add anymore hardware. I have enough gear to set up 😂

MIDI through is not something we often see on keyboards these days or at least not in the form of a DIN socket anyway.

I seem to remember something about MIDI through via USB but as I hardly ever delve into the inner workings of MIDI it is lost in that hazy fog that is my brain :lol:

We do though have some real MIDI gurus on the forum so I am sure one of them will be able to shed further light on this.

I'm not a Genos owner, so can only take a look at the available manuals and take a shot at answering.

No, there are no MIDI thru sockets on the Genos. Two Ins and two outs, but no thru.
However, some other devices I have used in the past have the capability of transferring some or all of the MIDI messages sent to them via USB to their MIDI out socket(s).
Taking a quick look through the Genos User and Reference manuals I couldn't find any instructions of how one might do this.
Maybe I'm going blind.

So, perhaps Yamaha has decided for you, that you don't need this facility!
(After all, why would you need to send a message to another device? Surely a Genos is the be-all and end-all of all keyboards? Isn't it?) :roll: :? :wink:

However a Genos owner may have figured out a way to do this, but I can't see it after a quick shuftie through the documentation.

Thanks to you all for your input. Appreciate it. I think I'll have to go with gigperformer's suggestion. Only trouble is I have over 500 songs in Unrealbook containing PCs. It will take some time!🥺

Might be worth a read of the forum rules?
