Last Teaser Friday.

Post by Eileen » 21 Sep 2017, 10:43

Watch out for the new teaser tomorrow and maybe it will reveal more. I think it is already know that this keyboard will be a 76 note only at present but only a little bigger than Tyros 5 and possibly a little lighter.
Hoping for more specs soon.

Hi Eileen

Yes hopefully some useful info on Friday. Looking at the latest photo from PMT it looks very minimalistic as far as button go. Not sure about the screen either. We will just have to wait.

Hi Eileen,

According to Promenade Music there will be a 61 note version as well as a 76 note version.

Best wishes,
Richard.

I believe this picture has been around for a long time and was a mock up of what they thought it would look like. Fake of course. I also think it will be a 76 note keyboard that is only a little larger than the Tyros61 note. The touch screen dose not appear to move now.either.

I'm surprised that a responsible Company like Promenade Music would advertise a mock-up of the Genos. But having said that it does not look anything like the photo that Bonners Music has sent me. Strange to say the least.

Have just been on to their website again. Now there is no mention of a 61 note keyboard! But they are quoting a price of £3,829 and showing the same picture. Curiouser and curiouser.

Could it be that I've actually found a secret picture of the new Genos?

Hello Rick,

I know from unreliable sources that this is exactly it !!! Except that you only see half of it, the other half of the instrument is on the other side :lol:

Well Richard,
I don't think the price has been set yet but I think it will be more than they are quoting. Must wait and see.

On another forum people have debated about the music in the teaser video and what if any relevance to Genos. I'm convinced now the shock is going to be that all the music in the teaser videos is being produced by the Genos, including the vocalist in the first teaser , not directly by the Berlin orchestra we see in the video.🙂 The days of limitation in realism in sound for keyboards is now over and it will sound exactly like the real thing.

Yes Jason,
I think you are right. The little bits I have heard this is going to be some animal. Slowly getting use to the look of it which is very different to what we have known so far, but then I think it was time for a change. Not long to wait until we know all about it.

organaut: "...teaser videos is being produced by the Genos, including the vocalist in the first teaser...."
Not only that, but I bet the video itself is made by Genos using a hidden 400 megapixel camera in the touchscreen and a slave drone hovering just above it. ;)

I do not believe that you can "play" the human voice as in Teaser 2 and you cannot sit down and play the Orchestra in Teaser 3.

I suspect a lot of Midi imput or kareoki effect here so to the sit down and play player it will be the same as sitting down and
playing a CD>

From what we know right now I am not optimistic about the finished article I want to play music, not produce it from inbuilt
gizmos.

Hi Tom,
I am sure the keyboard will suit all as always. Those wishing to take it further will be able to but if you just want to sit and play I am sure there will be lots on new excellent voices and styles to keep people busy.

I too think that we shouldn't be reading too much into it (the teasers). The teasers are what they are - "teasers". So you get a glimpse here and there but nothing specific. Maybe Yamaha does that so they can wet our appetites while they deal with all the logistics of distributing the boards to the dealers. And the strategy seems to work, else we wouldn't be posting on this topic. So they do have our attention - and that's all the teasers are about I think.

More concrete information I bet will be coming out on October 2nd or thereabouts.

I think the first one was a real teaser and really made me interested but next two (especially the 3rd.) have left me cold, looks and sounds nothing like a teaser for a keyboard. I'm just going to have to wait patiently for better details and a look and listen to the real thing.

I hope all will be revealed on the last teaser. I am sure some of the sounds and styles will be to do with the last two teasers.

Unfortunately, Eileen, this Genos will not come to my reach (4000 euros minimum), so I have to wait until someone get 2 hands on the internet or wait for a sequel to the s970. ;)

Hi Friends,
I know I’m old and don’t get so excited like you youngsters,
but about 30 odd years ago I bought a Casio keyboard because it could
play some simple left-hand rhythms, which I thought were great.

I went on to the Technics 2000 keyboard, and said I would never
buy another keyboard, until the Technics 7000 came out, and that was
defiantly going to be my last keyboard, and it would have been,
if they hadn’t closed down,
for me I haven’t heard a better keyboard, and so technically advanced.

Because I was reading that if it went wrong I would not be able get it mended,
I bought the Tyros 3 over six years ago, and still marvel at the musical backing
to a melody it can produce with its multifarious styles,
so I don’t think the Genos will help me to enjoy playing a Tune, anymore than the Tyros 3 does,

but to all those who will eventually buy the Genos I wish you every enjoyment.
and will be looking forward to your presentations.
Kind regards,
Fred

Although I have never owned one Fred I have played on a friend's Tyros 3 and listened to others on youtube etc. It still is an excellent keyboard in my view but I'm not an expert of course.
Eileen, if the specs I've read are to be believed, the Genos is slightly wider (longer) than the T5 (61) about the same as the Montage( 76) and exactly the same depth front to back as the Tyros 5 is. and supposedly weighs 13kilos. New DSPs including leslie sim If that's true that sounds exiting. Electronic circuitry is getting more and more compact. If Yamaha carry on at this rate they may have to move to smaller premises. :D Wouldn't it be funny if next year they brought out a reface version of the Genos. It would need a touch screen the size of an apple watch. :lol:

I think it will please a lot of people that the Genos is only about two inches longer than Tyros 61 note but has 76 notes. I certainly am looking forward to seeing it and having more information on price etc. I have heard that Rimmer's are offering £2000 PX against Tyros 61 note.
