HI everyone, well I am going to pop in again after a long sleep from this forum.
Firstly as some of you in here know me
I have been a user of General music since the very beging of there keyboards, I whent step by step with the company, so I consider me to be a faithful General music keyboards entusiast.
Now to the main subject here I say the Genesy and Genesys Pro were a FLOP since they where born, I orderd the Genesys before even knowing what it would look like cause I was assured by the Italian dealer it was gonna have a BIG hards disk, and a cuitie keyboard, only to find out when I when to pick it up it was a monster of wieght and the hard disk that came with it wasn't even as speciefied, "They used the same hard disks they where using in WK8" 1.3GB instead of 2GB to get rid of the stock I guess they had, never got a refund for that, and this subject was brought here a while back .
Then I whent for the Genesys Pro nice to carry was very satisfied with the wieght,
Now I was told many times that there will be an upgrage in the os to fit a bigger hard disk,I am not talking bull here everyone said it will be capable of an upgrade and that's why I bought it having in mind I will upgrade, I feel that GENERAL MUSIC rushed into producing these 2 keyboards and it's not fair for us to end up like this, there was only a couple of upgrades and a patch or 2 but still the keyboards have many faults in the os worst one is "WHEN USING THE HARD DISK TO PLAY MIDI SONG" all sort of things happen and most probably in a night you end up having to restart a couple of times, here we are talking about something that is suppose to be pro.
Conclusion I had used and was pleased with all Gem keyboards before, but not these 2, nice souds, good styles, very user friendly, good screen, but a let down when it comes to using the HARD DISK and I feel that we should have been given an incentive to upgrade the mother board for a favourite price, if that doesn't happen I wouldn't ever suggest anyone buy Gem again I spent thousand of pounds in these 2 keyboars for nothing, have to sell them half price and get another reliable brand I guess.
I am bieng very costructive so don't think I am writing in any sort of anger.And I know what I am talking about I gig 7 nights a week so I know where the weakness of these keyboards are, I only put a couple of thing here, there is more, but I think all keyboards have there weaknesis.
I suggest you in USA to put pressure on the company to do something about it causae If it never happens I am goona make sure this will be known up to now I stayed quiete hoping there will be an upgrade kit, but now I am certain this is not the case I have many contacts in international forums and beleive me I am gonna make it a known fact over there.
I have nothing again you guys in the us but it's time to make a move on this subject.
Like me and tommy therer are many others I nkw off who feel like they were taken for a ride.
REgards to all
