More good work. Thank you very much.

Records with *very* little processor overhead.

I've also noticed that I can now change patches while playing!

On the slow attack, simpler voices the changeover is effectively
seamless, with no xruns. More complex and 'harder' voices sometimes
produce a faint click. Only the most intensive ones actually produce an
xrun, and even then it is just 1 xrun. Changing voices when not playing
results in no xruns at all.

Also, Yoshi starts and stops recording without any xruns. No phantom
sound at the start of a recording anymore either. How difficult would
it be to make it only start recording when the sound starts (like the
old Zyn. one did)? With a lot of my work this would completely eliminate
the need for any post editing.

This is all on my dual core Athlon. Haven't tried on my eeePC yet. I'll
prolly give that ago tomorrow.

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