Nice to see you here, and it's always interesting to hear people's workflow.
With a normal distro install, you should be able to find out quite a bit
from '/usr/share/doc/yoshimi'. It's possible that some distros don't include
this (for space saving reasons) so I've attached a copy of the default MIDI
However, almost all controls are MIDI-learnable and at any one time you can
have up to 200 learned lines... if you have the patience to set them all up :)
For bedtime reading, there is the "Yoshimi Advanced User Manual" as a pdf. This
can be directly called from within Yoshimi if your machine has a PDF reader
As Hermann said, Version 1.5.10 is not quite ready yet, but the remaining
details should be sorted out very soon.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.

Program Change (voices 1 - 128) also user selectable CC for voices 128 - 160
There is also an option for making Program Change enable a part if it's
Key pressure (aftertouch) is internally translated as CC 642 but currently
implemented as channel pressure
Channel pressure is internally translated as CC 641 and is accessed by MIDI
learn further translated as CC 129.
Pitch Bend is internally translated as CC 640 and is accessed by MIDI learn
further translated as CC 128.
The modulation wheel only affects AddSynth and PadSynth, and then only the
frequency LFO depth. Just to make it more confusing, it changes the level from
0 up to it's current (gui) setting only. Therefore if the LFO depth is set to
zero the Mod Wheel will have no effect.
User selectable CC for Bank Root Path change.
For more details of bank changes see Banks.txt
Instruments inside banks should always have four digits followed by a hyphen.
Otherwise the results can be rather uinpredicatable.
Further details on NRPNs are in Using_NRPNs.txt
