Did not see such hangs for neither Zyn nor Yoshimi. A few years ago Zyn
used to crash alltogether from time to time and it *can* cause extreme
CPU-load accompanied with lots of xruns. But whenever I saw such
problems it was kind of "intentional" -- some patches can become quite
demanding in Zynadd. That goes for complex multitimbral pads and the
like especially if SUBsynth is strongly involved but also for some
combinations of ADSR, White noise and filters as used for percussive sounds.
I managed to make a mere snardrum, that made Zynadd raise the CPU-load
on a quadcore Intel by approx. 40-50% ;-)

Yoshimi never crashed on me but I did not see a big difference when
running demanding patches...

Well, but it is ;-) At least 8ms are perfectly OK for every situation I
ever have seen or heared of ;-)

I also have the whatsoever "feeling", that Yoshimi runs a bit more
stable. But Zynadd does not run bad for me either...


There are some improvements to the GUI introduced by Yoshimi indeed. But
the GUI of Zynadd is much better than its bad nimbus -- this synth
allows do do very complex things with sounds and I think, it would be
hard to make the GUI for such a complex, feature-rich application a lot
simpler whithout dumbing it down....
