Does anyone know if the Genos has a SSD installed? Not clear in operators manual. Since I have the Genos on order, I certainly
would appreciate if someone could tell me. Lloyd

There is 58 GB to store things.. we domt know yet wether its flash or an ssd or just a build in sd card..

With the nature of the data, a usb stick is fast enough, you can have 3 usb sticks connected at the same time

I understood the same thing. I read also that it's possible that the USB port underneath the keyboard itself is meant as a storage device like a hard drive would. I don't know that to be a fact but there was some chatter about it.

My son, the computer guru (he does this stuff for a living), tells me that in the not too distant future, hard drives will be non-existent because of their mechanical failings. They will be completely replaced by solid state storage devices that in many ways resemble USB thumb drives, but have a massive storage capacity and incredible reliability. I, personally, have experienced at least a half dozen hard drive crashes in the past decade and I know that many of the forum members have as well. I anticipate that most arranger keyboard manufacturers will eventually do away with the HDs as well.

All the best,

Gary cool
