3D printing is interesting for prototyping. In standard use the surface finish is often harsh, unconfortable for lips and risky for waterproofness. It could be treated with acetone but it is a complicated technique.
Sylphyo's mouthpiece are easily washable in a dishwasher or with soap and water. And it is too soon to imagine how it would be for the sensitive mouthpiece.
Modifying mouthpiece shape is a good idea. This could be complementary to our work on plugs for variable exhaust.
This would be possible to add something by just slightly unscrew the thumb rest, then use a loop attachment like what is used for strap attachment on wiimote or similar devices: https://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/ds/images/strap_2.gif
You do not need to completely unscrew the thumb rest which would avoid any trouble when trying to put back the thumb rest screw.
By the way, if the concern is to avoid the fall of the Sylphyo, such a wiimote strap would do the trick.
À propos du Sylphyo et des tablettes Windows, on en parle aussi dans un autre sujet (en anglais, par contre) où ont été testées une tablette comparable à la Surface Pro et une tablette à 100€. Vous pourrez y trouver quelques conseils sur la meilleure façon de paramétrer vos logiciels.
Envoyez bien votre vidéo et votre configuration (ainsi que vos remarques ultérieures) directement par mail à email@example.com : nous y serons plus à l'aise pour discuter que sur un forum public.
Pour votre problème, le fait qu'il puisse aussi arriver sur un EWI me fait dire que la technologie capacitive a peut-être du mal avec vos doigts (on cherche des gens comme vous pour améliorer nos capteurs :)). Veuillez essayer la version 1.0.2 du logiciel interne du Sylphyo qui devrait améliorer la détection des doigts de certaines personnes au niveau des touches de jeu.
Nous serions intéressés d'en savoir plus au niveau des autres problèmes que vous décrivez (touches d'octave), mais là encore je pense qu'il serait plus approprié de passer par firstname.lastname@example.org. On attend votre mail !
I do agree with mosquito. I play the recorder for decades and this half tone upper issue is the only difficulty I find with the Sylphyo.
By the way, I bought my Sylphyo three months ago (sorry not to have introduced me sooner) and I find it fantastic. I play the Akai EWI USB for five years now and I find the Sylphyo much more fun and practical, for the fingerings, the octave "keys", the settings always under your finger and for the wireless of course. And the battery never lets you down.
I read simultaneously the thread "Migrating from Akai EWI EVI fingering", and as I play also brass instruments, I will try the EVI fingering, a thing I always found a bit tricky on the EWI.
Many thanks for this great job. Greetings,
I love your approach and I do want to become a user and supporter. I may still get a unit in its present form since all future enhancements will be add-on-able or at least that's the plan.
I've been thinking about the vocoder/vocal cavity idea for some time now and believe it has great possibilities. I would definitely make some cool noise with that. Sounds that I attempt to make today with a wah pedal could be made richer with the mouth while playing. I even considered using a talk box while playing. I like how you guys are thinking outside the box and I understand that it takes time.
Just watched a video review of the library, it sounds really nice!
After skimming the manual, it looks like CC11 (Expression, the default CC for breath on the Sylphyo) is taken into account with the Armenian Duduk, the Turkish Ney, the Persian Ney, and the Zourna. CC2 seems to be used as a switch (to turn on/off the speed knob) rather than as a breath controller. CC1 (the default CC for the slider) seems to control how velocity influences the way legatos are performed.
So based on the manual only (couldn't find a demo), I'd say you could use CC11 with a fixed velocity (100 rather than 127), or maybe with dynamic velocity, as velocity seems to influence legato. But don't take my word for it: we don't have the library here, so the best thing to do would be to ask the library developers themselves!
