The best sound quality ever on a Digital Workstation

Powered by specially developed Yamaha technology, the sonic quality of every Voice in Genos is beyond any other Digital Workstation you've ever played. Everything you hear, whether it be the beautiful CFX piano, the lush Kino Strings or the punchy Revo Drums, just blows you away!

AEM (Articulation Element Modelling)  

AEM technology simulates the characteristics of musical instruments. During a performance the technology sounds appropriate samples, in real time, according to what and how you play. Samples are smoothly joined and articulated - as would naturally occur on an actual acoustic instrument.


Whether you create or perform music, you need great content. Genos features a diverse range of content, including 1,710 instrument sounds, 550 backing patterns, 216 arpeggios and more.

Expand your music

Continually expand the onboard content of your Genos by creating and installing your own custom or purchased packs. The scope of possibilities for new sounds and styles is virtually unlimited.

Yamaha Expansion Manager

YEM is a software app for Mac and Windows computers designed to manage the Expansion contents for Yamaha keyboards, and even enables you to create your own new sounds and loops.

Integrated flash memory

Genos includes 1.8GB of user ash memory with high speed reading/writing for your own Voices.

Revo! Drum & SFX Kits

Revo! Drum Kits recreate the most authentic sound of drums. Even when playing the same key multiple times, the sound is always of a different nuance, making it incredibly natural and realistic.

Vocal Harmony & Synth Vocoder

You can automatically apply various Vocal Harmony effects to your voice as you sing, or you can use the Synth Vocoder to craft the unique characteristics of your voice onto synthesizer and other sounds.


From Reverb to Distortion, Rotary Speaker to Compressor, Genos boasts unprecedented DSP power. Using the same VCM technology as Yamaha's professional high-end mixing consoles, Genos has the tools to create the perfect sound. Not only do the effects sound great, they look great too - with a stunning graphical user interface. 

Control Your Music

Control your music with new Live Controllers

A wide variety of functions can be assigned to the 6 knobs and 9 sliders to control your music through Genos.

The Live Control view provides instant visual confirmation of your adjustments of knobs and sliders without interrupting the main display.

Intuitive and fast control

Choose from a range of functions to set to the 6 assignable panel buttons and with just a single touch, you can instantly recall your desired function.

Style Engine

Genos features a variety of rhythmic backing patterns and accompaniments (called 'Styles') in a variety of di erent musical genres. Styles feature sophisticated patterns to inspire your creativity. You give the idea and Genos will react to you.

Registration Memory

The Registration Memory function allows you to save (or 'register') virtually all panel settings to a Registration Memory button, and then instantly recall your custom panel settings by simply pressing a single button.

Shaping Your Idea

Recording function (MIDI/Audio)

Quickly record your performance as an audio (WAV) or Standard MIDI File (SMF) with the Quick Recording feature. For more complex arrangements, Multi Recording features a fully functional 16-track MIDI sequencer with realtime and steptime functionality. When you're happy with your recording, it can be stored to the internal User Drive or saved to USB Memory for easy sharing.

Digital output

The new S/PDIF Digital output can be connected to compatible studio equipment or home theatre to output audio from Genos without any loss in quality.

Turn great ideas into reality

Every curve of Genos is designed to focus attention on the performer. From the back, audiences will admire the dynamic design of Genos. From the front, the performer sees an inviting and reliable place for creating music.

Behind the Scenes

Product Planning

Before development could start, we needed to make a plan. We visited many Digital Workstation players to gather their ideas and opinions about a new product and discovered they wanted something which would beat their expectations, something surprising and exciting. So, we went back to the drawing board and made plans not just for a new flagship but for an entirely new generation of Yamaha Digital Workstation. We call it 'Genos'.

Hardware Engineering

For Genos, we focused on delivering a great sound and making an easy to use yet performance focused user interface.
We re-designed the circuitry at component level to achieve a crystal clear sound output and a high performance microphone input. By adding the knobs, sliders and sub-display, we have created an intuitive interface for performers to be able to shape their sound in real-time.

Mechanical Engineering

As you can see, for a keyboard instrument, Genos has a very unique shape. It was a big challenge to transfer the designer's idea into reality, but we made it! The rounded bottom shape of Genos was probably most challenging part to realise. We had to ensure the absolute stability of Genos on keyboard stands whilst also achieving our designer's wish for a rounded arc shape.

Software Engineering

In the software engineering team, we took time to carefully consider and understand the users and how they want to use this product. As a result, we decided to make the software completely new. Although challenging, we always strived to create the best tool for our users and we are proud of the engine we have developed for Genos. With the intuitive Home Screen interface, Live Control with context aware Sub-Display, Playlist with search functionality and Assignable Buttons providing quick access to features in the main display.

Sound Designing

In the sound design team, we wanted to break through previous constraints to create the best sounding Yamaha keyboard. We are confident you'll hear the Genos difference. For the first time in any Yamaha keyboard, the Genos features our newly sampled C7 Grand Piano Voice. We're sure this, along with the huge variety of high quality preset content inside Genos, will be the perfect material for making your music.

Product Design

To design Genos we needed to understand how the instrument will be used in real life. So we travelled to many venues and experienced Digital Workstations being played live at a variety of music events. From the performers view a clean, unobtrusive shape is preferred, allowing them to concentrate on delivering their performance. As an audience member, we noticed we mostly saw the bulky and boxy backside of keyboards, which created a barrier between the audience and performer. We imagined a design with a Static shape for the performer and a Dynamic shape for the audience. We wanted to emphasise the performer, to make them stand out on stage, to allow for connection between musician and audience. To do this we used an arc shape, which is a reflection of the musician's arms, introducing dynamics and movement to the design, synchronizing musician, Genos and audience.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question:


Thank you for the message and for your interest in the new Genos workstation.

Whilst we haven't designed Genos specifically for beginners, the Genos nonetheless makes it incredibly easy to start playing - the touchscreen interface is intuitive and makes it easy to find the sounds and rhythms you're looking for; all the backing styles are easily controlled by their own dedicated buttons.

As with every keyboard workstation, the Genos combines a vast array of different sounds, backing accompaniments, recording facilities and other tools - it will naturally take some time to explore and discover these and to find out how they can best fit in with the music you're making. But this shouldn't be seen as a negative - the exploration and trying out can be great fun and inspiring at the same time.

In terms of music for church specifically, there are so many different styles played in churches today and I would say that the Genos caters for the majority, if not all of those styles (and more styles can be added later on). For more traditional church music - Gospel, organ and piano - the Genos excels. It features an array of Gospel backings and has some of our most realistic piano voices built in.

The Genos also has a whole section of organ voices with drawbar, tone wheel and pipe emulation - between them, covering virtually every type of organ.
