I, and a number of other people, have found that yoshi is consistently more
stable, reliable and less prone to xruns under stress.

There are details in the way yoshi implements some features that some of us

I frequently use very large patch sets. zyn is unable to load  these even
if it saved them. I'm informed that this has been dealt with in one of the
development branches, but when that will appear in the release version is
unknown. For me, this is a show-stopper.

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