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.
