Genos is the new benchmark in Digital Workstation sound, design, and user experience. A variety of functions can be assigned to the six knobs and nine sliders, allowing for adaption to various musical styles and uses. The Live Control view provides instant visual confirmation of control adjustments without interrupting the main display during the performance. The design consists of two key aspects: an authentic and logically composed control panel, and a smooth, dynamically shaped lower case. The former allows the player to be fully connected to the performance, and the latter creates an impressive silhouette on stage.

A complex instrument with an amazing quality of detail. What won us over most was the surface feel: Buttons, knobs and switches are subtly and very beautifully done. All elements including the interface are integrated in harmony with the whole.
