Our mission: innovate to improve your experience as a musician.
It is a fact: the synth and computer music world is made for those who know how to play keyboards and percussions, and most electronic instruments are not well suited to wind instrumentists. With the Sylphyo, we wanted to provide a way to bridge the gap between the expressiveness and subtlety of acoustic wind instruments and the richness and diversity of the electronic music world. In addition to that, the Sylphyo offers you several new ways to augment your playing technique, and allows you to discover new ways to perform your music.
I first heard about Sylphyo from the Kickstarter campaign. Because I have been following for several years what concerns wind controllers, without owning any until then (except MIDI bagpipes)
But I waited until the official release to buy it, because I needed to expand my sound palette on stage.
I play bagpipes, in different tonalities, acoustic and electronic. And also Irish flutes (Whistle). I was considering the acquisition of an EWI, but the size, the presence of keys, etc. . . made me hesitate.
The departure of the band's keyboarder pushed me to test the Sylphyo because I could only satisfy myself with flutes and bagpipes. . .
I play Sylphyo live, and therefore necessarily at home to practice. For future compositions and a next album (project for the moment postponed far enough) there will inevitably be its place. As a wind instruments player, he allows me to play sounds without having to work on keyboard technique. I don't use internal sounds at the moment (except to work on a song independently, for example in the train ;-)). The reason is that I use acoustic instrument sounds (Saxophone, Violins, Cello, Oboe, Bassoons, etc.)
I know the Sylphyo because I was looking for a wind converter (EWI).
I looked at all the possibilities on the Internet and then saw at Music Store that they have the Sylphyo.
Then I read through all the possibilities and features (also from the other MIDI wind controllers) and realised that the Aodyo was exactly what I'm looking for. And I was excited about it from day one. I also bought it at Music Store in Cologne.
