It's a stunning organ sound. I still think the really low notes need a bit more welly though ;)

Thank you both :)
Please don't forget this is just a quick and dirty version and only one rank of... errr... pipes. Look how few steps it took.

For a more detailed full organ (from my Collection) I would use '64ft Organ' for the pedals, as it has a real 'rumble' component, and 'Great Organ' for the main console. For other pipe ranks I would use 'Thin Pipe', and (from Companion) 'Stopped Pipe' and 'Cathedral Pipe Organ'. At a push 'Post Horn' can work quite well with the others.

PS.
64ft should really be 32ft - I got mixed up with the pipe ranks :blush:

What did you think of the chimes?

LFO {no that's not flatulence} :)
Yoshimi has a slightly odd characteristic with these. The depth control actually goes to 200%.

If you have a sinewave shape, it doubles the LFO frequency in exactly the same way as a fullwave rectifer does to ordinary AC, at the same time the shape of the modulation is changed in an interesting way - especially if you just go to 150%

If it's a saw wave, it just doubles the frequency but with varying amplitude and mark-space ratio. A ramp becomes a sort of glitchy saw, and a square is a sort of glitch with a reducing square component as you increase amplitude.

I haven't put a 'scope on the other shapes :lol:

It's a nice idea Martin, but once you start something like that, you have to keep it up - there's nothing sadder than an abandoned blog. Besides which, I barely have enough time for all the things I'm already trying to do :(

Doesn't have to be just you though, a Yoshimi community blog might be worth a thought?

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

Indeed - I'd love to find out more about the community and all the different things they are doing with Yoshimi.

Well, I must say I haven't thought of that, but surely it still needs someone to manage the forum, dispose of spammers etc. and that's not going to be me. Indeed, I'm so saturated with this stuff, that from Wednesday through to the following Monday, I will be taking a sabbatical from all things technological, meandering around the New Forest.

Depends how you set it up and what you want it to do really. The world is very much your mollusc.

Well, after my break from all things tech and a mental reset, I've decided that this is yet another thing I simply can't get involved in. I've put a post on the Yoshimi email list, asking if people are interested, and for someone to to take it on. If someone does, then I'll probably contribute from time to time but that's all.

Currently, this is what I'm already involved in:
Yoshimi development (the biggie)
Yoshimi Advanced User Manual
Yoshimi Website
Yoshimi Users list
Yoshimi Pi development
New Yoshimi Pi website
Preparation for November Linux Audio Conference (assuming it takes place).

And what do you do in your spare time?
;)

I would suggest that with the blog the first thing is to keep it simple, the second is to encourage your contributors to pace themselves.

Unfortunately a bug has been discovered concerning detune. This gives the wrong detune degrees for both fine and coarse detuning. However it only affects AddSynth Global. The individual voices, modulators, SubSynth and PadSynth are fine.

This has been present for over a year, so affects all Yoshimi Pi units out there. It is corrected in the current 'master' for those wanting to fetch it.
