Hi,

I am proud to introduce a new version of Foo YC-20, the Yamaha YC-20
software synthesizer. This release is vastly more efficient than the
previous version. The downside is that compiling this version takes
quite a lot of resources.

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

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

Flaws:
* Takes quite a bit of CPU power
* 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.

There is an undocumented "easter egg". Any command line argument given
to the program will be used as the configuration file name. The state
of the organ controls are read from the file and the file will be
overwritten with the current setup when the synthesizer is shut down.
