So in days to come the original "blueberry" ones will become particularly sought after and valuable because of their classic vintage warmth, so much better than all those later flashy gold ones. Eddy and I are sitting on potential goldmines here.

Well, that certainly cuts down on the amount of paint. Presumably i should then leave the rest of the box naked :lol:

Yoshimi has just managed to surprise me... yet again, and this time with one of my own sounds (Ghost Ensemble)
:o
I was just messing about on the virtual keyboard (couldn't be bothered to plug in a MIDI one) but had accidentally knocked the velocity level down to 1 (normal is 100), and this dramatically changes the sound, making it a very soft and warm pad. So, I had to experiment didn't I?
I did some trials with my MIDI keyboard with the best action, and am starting to learn how to get some real expression out of that sound

After a rather hectic time of late while various life things got in the way, getting some recording done with the Yoshimi-Pi is right up there at the top of the list, the holiday season is upon us and I expect to be sharing some results early in the new year if not before.

It is, to put it mildly, a ridiculously good piece of kit :clap:

Just thought I'd make the point that as of the last SOS meet Yoshimi Pi 003 is spoken for, so I need to think of making another one for this year's Linux Audio Conference.

However making just one is a pain, two is better, but I'd need to make about four to really gain the benefit of a mini production line. So that would leave three left over.

I'm sure at least that number of people have (as they say) expressed an interest. Anyone like to make a firm order?

Incidentally, I'm thinking that Zen should get first option of 007, seeing as he thought of it. Also, if we go with Goldfinger rather than Golden Eye, that means almost the whole thing is golden :)

Place your orders Ladies and Gentlemen. I hereby confirm publicly that I will be putting my money where my mouth is and will honour my bid for 007. Happy to pay up front on request, so do your worst folks, crowbar my wallet open.

How cool. 60 pounds? Can I pre-order one? I know nothing of synths but I've got to start somewhere and it can just as well be yours!

Ummm. That wouldn't cover a third of the materials. I've been asking for £260.

Given you get a pi4, a little HDMI monitor, an audio interface and a power supply plus a little 1-button box to glue it all together it would be a good enough deal even without the fact that it has been pre configured to boot direct to a working instance of Yoshimi.

In all seriousness, it's an absolute steal at £260 and I would recommend it to anyone. Apart from being a unique and interesting device in it's own right, it sounds fantastic.

It's cheaper than many softsynths and can give the best of them a run for their money.

Go on, you know it makes sense!

You'll have to talk to Folderol for the price in kroner, but whatever it is it's worth it. I've got a bog-standard class compliant MIDI interface plugged into mine with the other end in a MIDI patch bay and it all works without fuss. How many synths can you find where the maker will be coming to stay the night next Saturday?
