I am proud to introduce Foo YC-20, the Yamaha YC-20 software synthesizer

The YC-20 is a divide-down combo organ designed in the late 60's. This
emulation faithfully copies the features, sounds and flaws of the
original organ.

 * 61 keys
 * Two main voice sections
 * Switchable bass section
 * No polyphony restrictions
 * A realism control to add flaws found in the real organ

 * Unbelievable amount of CPU load
 * No touch vibrato

The emulation is written in Faust and uses Jack for audio and MIDI. All
controls of the synthesizer can be controlled with MIDI.



Note! The synthesizer contains and undocumented "easter egg". If the
program is given an argument, that argument will be used as the
configuration file name. The file will be created if it doesn't exist.
When quitting, the file is overwritten with the current setup.
