@wwoodard8 I am a flute player. The breath support is far easier on the Sylphyo. You can set the breath control to how you like it. Unless you have serious health/lung problems, I do not see any problems with breath support, it is minimal on the Sylphyo, and no special exercises are needed.... Do you own one or are you thinking of buying one? I recommend the breath adjustment kit, which gives you three options of plug sizes for the bottom end of the instrument.
I use the middle size one....cost 20 Euros... or you can make your own improvised plug... thanks
