Ho Hum,. Today I did a last software and firmware upgrade (the latter courtesy of the Pi foundation), and have just packed everything away - it's been on all day. I'm afraid I don't have a box that'll comfortably take the screen, main unit and other bits, so Eddy will only be able to do a partial unboxing.

I'll also be taking a mini keyboard and other odd bits. I'm afraid I can't leave the IEC lead. I have no spares, and that's a specially long one for my soldering iron!

I suppose I'd better got on with building another one now :lol:

'smee again :tongue:
YP001 is now happily with it's owner and YP002 is ready as well - likely to be a post Christmas pressy.

It would appear I have enough materials for another one :bouncy:

YP002 is also safely with its new owner and working correctly {phew}.
... and Chris has come up with a neat way of mounting the screen :thumbup:

In the {cough} unlikely {cough} event of anyone being interested, I'll start building YP003 soon.

Just been re-reading this thread with a lot of pleasure, based on the fact that I've got this sitting next to me:

I was having trouble figuring out the stand that came with the screen when I realised the screen had a screw socket on the bottom that takes camera kit. I had the little tripod kicking around doing nothing and suddenly it has a new purpose in life!

Hmmm. Intriguing. And looking very slick. :thumbup:

More audio demos please, to tickle the ears at Xmas time.

And I've just put 'tripod' on my Xmas list - very sophisticated :thumbup:

There is a page of Yoshimi demos here. With a suitable sequencer Yoshimi Pi should be able to duplicate all of these (with the possible exception of Ghost train) although these were not actually done on it.

P.S.
I especially recommend Lorenzo's improv. What he does with 'Slow Strings' at the end is pure magic!

Christmas is always a very busy time for me so seriously getting into the YP is going to have wait until the New Year, but I'm looking forward to it a lot. I've already connected a keyboard to it and had a noodle round some of the presets and it does sound pretty gorgeous over my studio monitors.

Somebody needs to get in there quick and order YP003 before Will is overwhelmed with the rush. It's a great idea and a very neat implementation.

Genius! I have one of those little tripods somewhere, now I've got to dig it out.
