Yamaha Genos

Unread post by Davhol » Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:00 pm

I've now been playing with the Yamaha Genos for several days. I'm a senior (72) so things come slowly to my brain. With that said, there are great similarities between the Genos and psr s950 except for the fact that you're using the display vs buttons in most cases. As Saul told me I would, I'm already becoming more comfortable using the display to navigate.
The biggest difference (I'm a player, NOT a composer) is the sound quality of the voices and the ability to layer THREE, rather than TWO, voices on the right hand.
The voices are, in a word , SPECTACULAR!
I would guess, from what I've read in the manuals, that COMPOSERS would reap many other benefits as well.
For me, I paid a lot for better voice quality. IT IS WORTH IT for me personally!

I think it would be worth it for me also Dave but unfortunately a Genos is way out of my budget even with a discount from Yamaha :( If that ever changes then I will definitely go for it because, even though I won't use most of it's features it does have the compositional components that I would find useful and of course, as you alluded to the sound quality is superb!

I think Yamaha hit a home run with Genos. In many ways it is the ultimate keyboard. It can be whatever you want it to be and taking that versatility into consideration the high initial investment probably isn't that high after all :)
