Bloody 'ell, they've thought of everything. How do you chew in the meantime?

Will be forwarding this thread to #3 who is showing some interest in these things, the Yoshimi, that is.

Well done Will - perfection comes ever nearer to this amazing synth.

I've now got an outline of the new user guide at a temporary location on my website. It's mostly links and placeholders with a smattering of images and odd snippets of text.

I'd be very interested to know how it performs on different browsers and hardware, before I go too much further so I can tweak the structure before it gets too complex :o

I've just explored all the pages with no issues. The graphics are all clear. Tested on macOS Catalina 10.15.7 with Safari browser 14.0.3

Hey Will,

Testing it on my Galaxy (Android smartphone) A50.

Using the Firefox browser, the Index, Installation, Navigation, Getting Started and Instrument Banks pages all look good, but the text on all the other pages is shrunken down to a teeny-tiny microscopic font that I can't read.

The screenshots on the 'Parts and Channels' and 'Instrument Banks' pages are also very much reduced in size, to the point they are not much use.

Using the DuckDuckGo browser, the text on all pages is microscopic and (to me) borderline unreadable.

Using Chrome, the Index, Installation, Navigation, Getting Started, Instrument Banks, Parts and Channels all have nice clear text but on all other pages it's microscopically small.

One thing I would make as a general observation is that on a smartphone it's suboptimal to put screenshots alongside text as the graphic usually gets smooshed down as part of the process. Much better to put graphics on a full-width section of their own, with text above and below, but not to one side or the other.

Looks good on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (w/ Ubuntu Studio pkg) using Opera or Firefox. Can't wait to dig in to 2.0!

One problem I've had with Yoshimi is that it displays as a tiny little window on my laptop screen (Lenovo P52s, 15" 4k screen). Readable with a magnifying glass, but less than ideal ;) I believe the problem is with Ubuntu, as the screen scaling function doesn't work reliably for me.

Version 2.0 will still start at a tiny size, but once you drag the edges to resize the windows they will stay the size you set them. Eventually we'll arrange to calculate appropriate sizes on a first-time startup.

@ eddy
I thought I'd replied earlier but apparently not :(
Anyway, the latest copy will change format at a width of 550 pixels and should then make the images full width and in line. It was an 'interesting' experience getting it to do that. I'm also now setting a relative sized font which hopefully will make them all the same, while still allowing browsers to change the sizes.

There is a *lot* more in there now, and the structure is taking shape and firming up. I'm undecided about what to do regarding a lot of the part controls being in the main window while the actual access to engines etc. is, well, in Part! As much as possible I'm trying to avoid duplication.

Anyway, do have a look - still in the same place:

Suggestions welcome.

I really must take the plunge and get my Yoshimi updated. Like most of these processes, I suspect it's easy, but only after you've done it very carefully the first time.

As for suggestions Will ... On a flippant level, you might want to run your text through a spell checker before officially publishing it ;)

I've spotted these three:

Overview: Yoshimi is a fully polyphonic, multi-timbral, multi-channel software synthseiser

Subsynth: a series of harmonics filters that only allow compariatively narrow bands

Padsynth: (as it's name sugggests)


Well done Will - perfection is within reach!

Unfortunately I can't find a text editor that handles both code and spell checking at the same time - I'm not even sure such a beast exists :?
Still thanks for spotting these - corrected now :)

Updating on the Pi is not difficult, but it is slow to compile. No way round that really.

W3C has a tool to spell check webpages, and it appears that some browsers also support this.

The W3C tool does not obviously support local file checking, unlike their standards conformance check tools.

Thank for that. I'll check it out.
