It's ALIVE!!!

A hastily snapped picie here.

As you can see it's running multi part, and if you zoom in you can just about see in the CPU monitor the third CPU is running about 43% (the others are little more than idle).

The MIDI file controlling it is included, and does all the part setup as well.

Apologies for the camera flash - I wanted to get this out as fast as possible.

All the software seems to work correctly, but I'll give it a long run and do some more sanity check through the day.

Looking great Will, that monitor seems perfect for the task. VERY much looking forward to putting a Yo-Pi through its paces! :thumbup:

Thanks guys :bouncy:

It's been running for several hours now. The case is getting a little warm, but the centre of the heat is directly above the PSU which is attached to the top. There's no sign of the Pi wanting to throttle due to heat.

One very minor niggle is that it is supposed to be possible to do a system shutdown from Yoshimi by holding down the CTRL key while clicking on the exit icon. It works perfectly on my other machines. Eventually I realised that they were all running with Jack, rather than ALSA. It seems ALSA somehow screws up that combination on exit.

it still works correctly closing from Yoshimi's command line, so should also do so with the correct MIDI NRPN, but I haven't got a file to test that yet - nor a controller with that NRPN set.

The GUI isn't really an issue, because you can just click on the normal exit icon, but I'll try to find out what's going on.

The idea of being able to close down via MIDI, is that you can set everything up, then run it without a mouse, keyboard or monitor and make all your changes via CCs or NRPNs, including a tidy shutdown :)

That's proper thinking-things-through, that is :clap:

The more I look at at the pic, the more I can see a little steampunk paintjob and a few brass fittings on it, but that's definitely one for the end-user, not a suggestion for you!

My money awaits. Just let me know when and where to throw it :bouncy:

Most definitely!

But you'd also have to rename it the Yosteamy :beamup:

I'm currently considering calling mine (for I now own one, hurrah!) something involving "WJGt" (pronounced 'widget') after its creator. It'll be part of a longer steampunk-y name but I'm going to mull that over for a bit.

I can't collect it until the last week of the month as I'm heading to the land of windmills and tulips again this week and next but it'll give me something to think about while I'm away. I am quite excited at the prospect of plumbing it in here :thumbup:
