The site (same link above) now has considerable refinements based on comments here and elsewhere :bouncy:

Well done Will - looking good!

I'm about to visit Mitt to hopefully sort out his PC audio problems, and I'll probably lose my Talk Talk internet connection some time tomorrow until Tuesday, so here are a few quick comments as they occur to me.

In the specifications, it might be more informative to add:

2 USB 3.0 ports (typically used to plug in computer keyboard & USB MIDI if required)
2 USB 2.0 ports (for inbuilt audio & computer mouse if required)

12V DC out @2A (powers Yoshimi Pi itself, plus any external gear connected to USB ports)

Need to dash now, and will hopefully be able to provide more detail when I return home, but hope this helps!

Eddy has provided a fantastic review - now added to the site here.
Ideally there two others I would like to ask for (even if just a brief single paragraph) . Firstly from someone relatively unfamiliar with synthesisers, and secondly someone into sound design who can compare and contrast the Yoshimi Pi with other synths from that viewpoint.

For the intrepid people, there is now Yoshimi version 1.7.3 available.
I've marked this as a maintenance release. It has no new features, but several bugfixes, and underlying code cleanups that should marginally improve performance.
I recommend updating fairly soon, as there are some (nice) changes coming in a few weeks time.

P.S.
Just a reminder that YP003 is still available, and I have enough bits knocking around for YP008 and possibly YP009 :)
