The first MIDI wind controller to provide the feeling of an acoustic instrument
Its unique patent-pending air column design enables an incredibly wide dynamic range and precise control.
The Sylphyo is designed to reproduce the air flow of acoustic instruments, allowing you to achieve pianissimo or fortissimo dynamics, to play staccato or legato, and to realize many tonguing techniques.
You can customize breath control to adapt your practice and habits, and set it to send any MIDI control change or aftertouch message.
Its slider and its inertial sensors offer you unmatched expressive capabilities.
Shake the Sylphyo once to activate inertial mode, where you can control sounds by shaking and orienting it in the air. Moving the Sylphyo around can also control two other MIDI parameters.
For more intimate control, the high-precision slider below the thumbrest can be used to separately control up to three parameters, including pitch-bend.
If you already play another wind instrument, you'll be up and running with the Sylphyo in no time.
Many fingerings are available on the Sylphyo, and can be played across more than five octaves.
Perform expressive key-bends to slightly pitch-bend notes by sliding your fingers on the keys.
Easy to use
Want to calibrate the Sylphyo, transpose its keys or change its fingerings? Just press a few keys and presto, it's done.
Quickly access the most used parameters, such as base key, or MIDI channel, without even having to look at the screen.
The scrolling settings interface is swift, easy to use, and full of options to customize every aspect of your performance.
Start playing in a few minutes, even if you don't have any virtual instrument. The included Sylphyo Bench app features five sounds designed to easily discover most playing techniques.
