(Genos, Tyros 5 & CVP-709)
if you want to use V-Console with an extra keyboard and/or pedalboard add a 'Cable Kit' to your order...
A dedicated tablet PC that connects to your keyboard with a single cable, V-Console is all about making more out of an already fabulous instrument. It adds a pallet of 8 extra voice parts on top of the usual Left, Right1, Right2 and Right3. Any of the existing voices on the main keyboard can be put in any of these 8 parts so you have the full complement of sounds available.
They can be switched on or off instantly using the intuitive ‘tab’ style switches on the touchscreen. Firstly, having eight extra voice parts available to play instantly means you don’t have to pre-set all you voice changes in registration memories you can be more spontaneous make your selection as you play. Secondly, it means you can create wonderfully rich layers of sound even for the left part (which only has one sound available on the main keyboard). Styles and accompaniments operate exactly the same as before.
Making your own settings couldn’t be easier. V-Console puts everything at your fingertips - all the settings are in one place. Just pick a sound and finely adjust it using the V-Console touchscreen. No more delving through layers of menus to get to the things you want to adjust.
You can set any of the different voice parts to play from different areas of keys – make full use of the whole keyboard. Why not add a brass stab in the top octave of the keyboard?
Of course, you can store your favourite settings and registrations for instant recall and there is even a selection of ‘Showcase’ settings included so you can experience what can be achieved straight out of the box.
V-Console works with Genos, Tyros 5 and CVP-709 If you like, just add a MIDI keyboard and/or a pedalboard for extra flexibility.
