Interesting little teaser there. Looks like there are some great updates coming although not sure why the 3.0Gb exp memory thing wasn't there from the start? Now...if they could just enable usb as an audio interface I would be very happy. Even though I don't own a Genos and there is no prospect of me getting one any time soon they will, eventually come into my price range on the used market. Could be a bit of a wait though :(

Saul,

You're right, you should have started with 3 GB. The AUDIO / MIDI interface would make GENOs useful and professional.
However, it is commendable that they have been dealt with so quickly since the last update and did not have to wait until 2020.
I'm hopeful ...

Hi

Please excuse what may be a silly question, but is the V2.0 upgrade a firmware upgrade or a new physical keyboard?

The language used to describe V2.0 would imply it's a firmware update, but if that were the case then how can a firmware update increase memory from 1.8GB to 3GB? :think:

I've just ordered a Genos online and only just seen the V2.0 announcement and I need to know if I should cancel my order (I have time as they are awaiting stock) and wait for the new one to come out, or go ahead with my order as I'll only have to update it.

Thanks.

Hi All

I'm going to answer my own question as I called Yamaha to get the answer - it's a firmware update and the reason for the upgraded RAM is because the flash memory will be repartitioned slightly differently to provide that much extra space.

Apparently they've received quite a few calls asking the same question and they've passed on the message to the web developers to please make it clearer and avoid the ambiguity. Good to know I'm not the only one. :D

I've also carried out the update and it seems ok but I did have a message about incorrect shutdown (or similar) data lost, even though I did everything as directed. All my own songs and setting seems ok. What I can't figure out is what new styles and voices have been added. Anyone know if they are in a separate section somewhere?

That message has been seen of several others that installed, but don't seem to be any problen. Everythings works OK as far as I've seen till now,

The new styles is not a part of the updatefile, it's a separate pack that you have to download and install via YEM or USB.
The styles will show up in the Expansion folder among other installed addonpacks you may have. The pack is downloadable form the downloadsite, just scroll down and you'll find it.
Also there is updated manuals, a new playlist with suggestions for the styles and more. Just explore the site, and you'll see. 😊

Don't forget to update YEM to v2.6 as well, that's nessesary to work with G-v2.

Good luck, have fun!

Thanks, yes I copied a link elsewhere to the expansion pack and have installed via USB. I copied it to a USB stick,, connected the USB to Genos and went to Expansion from the main menu and added the file. Quite a few styles and voices, many voices are synth basses and few styles are ground breaking but that depends on your requirements - and they are free!. Wanted to post a link here but the site does not allow that.

My dear Genos Friends,
I would like to know, how to reach the user voices from my DAW software.
I have installed the GENOS 2.0 SuperiorPack and I can use them on Genos keyboard,
but I would like to use them from my DAW software also
and I do not know their voice number (MSB, LSB, PC(1..128)).
Thanks for the help
