I have been using Yoshimi and some of the great instrument sets to make
impromptu melodies, which is just great and fulfills a major need of mine. I
very interested in, if lazy - excuse, how instruments are added or implemented
here, and I would enjoy perhaps contributing from my own library if possible.
Yoshimi is pure "electronic" sound synthesis. Every sound is created from
scratch, just by clever algorithms. This is very much in contrast to many
other computer based contemporary music, which relies on sampled physical
instruments. Also soundfonts are based on sampled and looped recorded sound.
Yoshimi is really different here: every note is unique. Even when pressing
the same key, you never get literally the same sound, it is always subtly
different, because every note is created from scratch, and with a tiny
bit of randomness.
In the main window there is an "edit" button. You can load any preset,
hit "edit" and explore how it is made and tweak any detail you want.
Youshimi offers three basic building blocks
- an additive synthesis, which creates sound by adding overtones
- a subtractive synthesis, which creates sound by filtering narrow
bands out of white noise
- the so called "PADSynth", which is a flavour of a granular synth,
i.e. it creates sounds from a huge number of tiny sonic grains.
The PADSynth is the most specific and outstanding part in Yoshimi;
and it is the reason why its sounds are so fluid and natural.
Happy New Year!
May the Sounds emerge!
