So the App that Yamaha endorses to use with the Genos cost $44.99?!? For a $5499 Genos, you should get a free download.

I just bought the Yamaha TF1 digital mixer. They are sending me a 128GB iPad as an incentive to buy the mixer... a $429 value. I had an old iPad 2 with the 30 pin connector. BONUS!!

But, an app for $44.99... I think unReal book may be the better option.

I'm going to stick with unrealBook for my Genos ... just hoping that Genos still supports recall of registrations via MIDI commands sent to Genos. [I had written more about this on the PSR forum]. unrealBook has worked real well for me anyway ... I use the Set List feature on the app, along with my own Registrations on Tyros, to do probably what "Playlist" does on the Genos ... hopefully I'll do it that same when when my Genos arrives ...

Nice bonus to get with your TF1 - an iPad!!

I'll have to look into this SongBook+ app just to see what it's all about ... just for curiosity ...

I’ve been a long time fan of unReal book but now mostly use Mobile Sheets Pro because it was simple to configure with Songbook on my PA4x. I have a copy of Songbook Plus from Baum Software and although some people swear by it I prefer unReal book over Songbook Plus. I will add though that Matthias the developer is very responsive to any questions a user may have. In the iOS App Store there is a light version you can download I think it’s free, it allows use of a limited amount of lead sheets but you can get a feel for the program. In my opinion it’s a pain to configure the Songbook Plus app to work with Tyros. I’m assuming that maybe for Genos maybe Yamaha has made it easier to work with than having to configure with MSB, LSB?
