Genos sets a new benchmark for the sound of digital workstations and for user experience. A variety of functions can be assigned to six knobs and nine sliders in order to suit different musicians and applications. The Live Control view immediately shows how the controls have been set without interrupting the main display during the performance. The two points of attention in the design were aimed at the reliable, logically composed control panel and the smooth, dynamically shaped bottom of the device.
