Are these all spoken for now?

I'm not asking for a friend, I want one ;)

I've never liked a solo violin, you need at least five for a proper fire.

There is still one currently unclaimed.
It's not actually assembled yet as I don't know what colour is wanted. It can be unpainted, black, or brass. I ran out of copper and there was only ever going to be one gold one.

P.S.
I have all the bits for this, so it's the same price as the others.

For future builds the critical-ish bit is the monitor. This exact model is now unavailable. There are alternatives but the cheapest is nearly twice the cost, and most are even more than that :(

If anyone else is interested please let me know as soon as possible. I need at least two for it to be a viable job, and preferably four.

Good man :thumbup:

Will - there is also that other spare one I still have here in a safe place! I'm not sure if you still have that earmarked or not.

Well I sort-of had, but I don't think holding it back is justified if there's someone who wants it.
It's one of the early blue ones isn't it?

Seven Yoshi Pi-ees sitting on a bench.
Seven Yoshi Pi-ees sitting on a bench.
And if one Yoshi Pi should happily be sold,
There'll be six Yoshi Pi-ees sitting on a bench.

Six Yoshi Pi-ees......
Five Yoshi Pi-ees......
Four Yoshi Pi-ees......
Three Yoshi Pi-ees......
Two Yoshi Pi-ees......

One Yoshi Pi-ee sitting on a bench.
and it's still there :beamup:

And if one more person,
Would like to buy a Yoshimi-Pi ...
... they'll have to talk to Will because I'm not selling either of mine!

I absolutely love the copper case on this one. Thank you Will :clap: :thumbup:

Just a few pointers for those that like to live dangerously :lol:

Yoshimi comes with a copy of a very detailed Advanced User Manual, and you can display it by clicking on 'View Manual' in the Yoshimi drop-down menu.

As it stands that's not terribly convenient in the Yoshi Pi on a small screen. However, the window manager also supports 4 virtual screens, so you can grab the top bar of this window with the mouse and drag it sideways to a different screen. From then on you can flick between the two, using the mouse scroll wheel over any part of the desktop background.

A more useful alternative is to download the PDF onto your usual computer with a full size screen. You can get a copy here. Please bear in mind that this is written by ordinary folks, not copywriters and there is some duplication and may be some bits that aren't entirely clear to new users.

There are a lot of inactive (greyed out) controls dotted through Yoshimi that are activated by an associated check box or menu. They usually have a frame hinting at the association.

If editing the engines bear in mind that the PadSynth one does nothing by default. You have to enter the editor itself and click on 'Apply Changes'. You also need to do that every time you change the harmonic content. When you load an instrument that has PadSynth content this is performed automatically.

Both SubSynth and PadSynth have a group of controls marked 'Harmonic Distribution'. This filters and shifts the relative positions of the harmonics, and can give some particularly interesting sounds. The more harmonic content in the originating waveshape, the more effective these controls are.

Have fun :bouncy:

There seems to be an issue direct linking to the PDF in github, at least on my machine, whereby you get a blank screen. Here is a link to the page that embeds that document:

Thanks for all that useful info WIll! 8-)

Eddy - I just downloaded the latest version of the manual (currently v1.7.1 dated April 19th 2020) from:

https://github.com/Yoshimi/yoshimi-doc/ ... manual.pdf

...and it happened automatically.

EDIT: Clicking on your or Will's link just sends me to the Github page, but then nothing happens. The difference seems to be the yoshimi-doc/blob/ section of your link, which in mine is replaced by yoshimi-doc/raw/

Ahh, Martin you're correct. The original link did work for me (it turns out I now have half a dozen copies of the manual in my download folder) but it rendered a blank screen when clicked on and I was expecting to see it in the browser :blush:
