Hmmm. That shouldn't happen. We'll have to investigate it on a clean machine.

Depending on whether you installed, or ran from userland you should have sets of
banks (bank root dirs) in either or both:


Yoshimi should have looked for these at first start. If not, from the main
window go to 'Instrument->Show Root Paths' and add them manually.

You'll find banks and instruments for both Yoshi and Zyn (they work on both)
dotted around the 'net :)

There is a scattering of usage notes in 'doc' that we try to keep up-to-date :?

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