Genos Styles

550 Preset Styles

Tyros5

In October 2018, Yamaha announced Genos, its most advanced Digital Workstation keyboard ever. "Genos is a whole new type of flagship instrument, rethought from the ground up to inspire and empower songwriters to create finished compositions entirely within its intuitive and powerful environment — while at the same time vastly improving the accompaniment features that live keyboard entertainers know and love."

The Genos offers many new features for a Yamaha keyboard such as a new touch-screen interface, live control knobs and sliders, assignable buttons, 216 arpeggios, and a new playlist feature. It also has an enhanced sound quality for all the voices, a new C7 Grand Piano, and new Revo!Drum voices. And, of course, the new flagship also includes styles, 550 styles, and the new sound content makes the Genos styles better than ever, across all musical genres from pop to jazz to classical to rock to hip-hop to EDM to regional and world flavors.

The Genos has 550 styles. The previous flagship, the Tyros5, included 539 styles. The Tyros4 came with 500 styles, the Tyros3 had 450 styles, and the Tyros2 had 400 styles. The totals suggest that there's not much added to the Genos, but the totals are deceptive. The Tyros4 had 50 more styles than the Tyros3. However, there were 86 brand new styles added to the T4 while 33 styles were dropped. The Tyros5 had 39 additional styles. 40 were brand new styles, while 1 older style was dropped.

The Genos has only 11 more styles than the Tyros5. Is this such a a big change? Well, yes, it is. Of the 550 styles on the Genos, 206 styles are completely new. Another 19 styles have similar names, but very different tempos from earlier versions. This suggests that 40% of the Genos styles are new to previous Yamaha owners. Of course, quite a few of the old standards are still present. There are 215 Genos styles, with the same style name and default tempo, that appeared on each of the previous three flagships. Another 80 styles appeared on the Tyros5 and Tyros4, but not the Tyros3. Thus about 60% of Genos styles are similar to earlier Yamaha styles. Of course, with the new drums and voices, they may sound a whole lot better than the versions on earlier keyboards.

Though many Genos styles are similar to earlier Yamaha styles, they are now offered in a new set of style categories. The Genos styles are distributed among 15 style categories rather than 11. In the table below, all the Genos styles are listed alphabetically by style category. The new Genos styles are listed in blue and highlighted. The triple asterisk (***) indicates styles that appeared on the Tyros5, Tyros4, and Tyros3 keyboards. The double asterisk (**) indicates styles that appeared on the Tyros5 and Tyros4. A single asterisk (*) indicates a style that appeared only on one of the three previous flagships. Styles on the Genos with similar names to earlier styles, but significant differences in the default tempo are shown in bold on a white background. For example, all the earlier keyboards had ChristmasSwing1@158 bps, and ChristmasSwing2@184 bps. These are both gone and replaced with a single ChristmasSwing@140 bps.

While new Genos users will appreciate all the new styles, those trading up may find that some of their favorite styles are gone. The table below list preset styles from the Tyros5 and Tyros4 models that are NOT available on the new Genos. Of course, all but the Audio styles from the Tyros5, can be loaded externally on the Genos.
