Yamaha Genos now available at all South African dealers
Yamaha’s most advanced digital workstation to date, makes its way to South African shores. Available at all authorized Yamaha dealers.
Yamaha have designed everything from the layout to the sound engine from the ground up.
They have included their world-renowned C7 grand piano sounds among other high-end piano sound libraries, alongside the incredibly powerful DSP system, that allows you to tailor your piano sound to fit your style.
The Yamaha Genos allows you to create completely unique patches by combining multiple sounds from the vast library or tweaking the parameters on the live control section, you can then save those sounds and recall them at any moment during a performance.
The Genos includes 550 different styles to choose from, so you’re able to create music in varying genres. Each sound has various parameters, allowing you to perform or tailor the style to fit your sound.
The new “Kino Strings” and “Revo! Drums” sections offer you incredibly realistic banks of samples akin to the high-end sounds you would hear in cinematic scores and orchestral performances. With 256-note true stereo polyphony, you can only imagine the immersive, compelling performances you can create.
Cinematic multi-samples and DSP are the heart of the Genos engine
The true power of the DSP engine in the Yamaha Genos must be seen or heard.
The amount of parameter control on each sound is mind-blowing, and the intuitive touch-screen makes the workflow that much more fluid. You’re able to control everything from the amount of distortion on your lead guitar’s amplifier, to the various drawbars in an organ.
The “Revo! Drums” library included in the Yamaha Genos, is a sample bank made up of various drum kits that have been sampled in a multitude of environments; everything from Rock, Pop to Vintage drums. You’re able to choose between brushes and regular sticks, with up to 26 samples layered per drum – to give you the ultimate control.
They’ve even included a system called “wave cycling” that ensures every single drum hit plays slightly differently, for the most realistic drumming experience on a keyboard.
The Yamaha Genos is a high-end workstation.
It is geared towards the seasoned professional, with all the bells and whistles any touring keyboardist would want.
It fetches a lofty price tag (from R 78,000 – R 114,000), however one should consider that it’s a production studio in a box. Just add studio monitors and you can compose any music.
To put the price in perspective a set of two Pioneer CDJ2000-Nexus 2 media players costs more and all you can do on those is play recorded music!
