A software synthesizer for Linux, originally forked from ZynAddSubFX (Copyright 2002-2009 Nasca Octavian Paul) in 2009 by Alan Calvert. Initially, Yoshimi delivered the same synthesizer capabilities. After early improvement of Jack and Alsa midi/audio performance, now many new features have been added, and we are concentrating on accessibility.

There is also a highly detailed user guide under development: https://github.com/ahlstromcj/yoshimi-doc

User Reviews

  • This is exactly what I (and others it seems) were looking for: all the features of the excellent ZynAddSubFX, but in a much more JACK-friendly package. Many thanks to the developers.

  • I use Yoshimi in my MIDI synth own-built for live use; there's nothing which does everything it does, including its reliability and ability to run multiple Yoshimis with different patches simultaneously!

  • Fantastic, absolutely fantastic - especially the new mysterious banks...

  • This really solved a very annoying problem for me. Thanks developers! Where can I send some $?

  • This project is the best that could happen to Zynaddsubfx. Works like a charm with jack or alsa midi or audio. The anonymous poster about missing 'support' of vmpk or lmms should execute yoshimi -h to learn how to use it before giving false recommendations
