Je suis saxophoniste depuis bientôt 5 ans et j'ai présenté le sylphyo à mon professeur de musique du collège (qui joue de la flûte traversière):il voudrais en acheter pour le collège!!!(il va surement attendre les cartes de synthèse pour en acheter)
J'ai également testé le sylphyo sur un yamaha ypt-220 cela fonctionne super bien et le son est correct J'attends énormément la carte de synthèse j’espère qu'elle arrivera vite car je suis impatient
Aujourd'hui il n'y a pas de housse fournie par Aodyo avec les Sylphyo. Mais la plupart du temps les revendeurs en fournissent une. En effet le Sylphyo se range parfaitement dans les housses de baguettes de batterie.
Je pense que @Laurent_AODYO va partager ses presets bientôt :). En attendant, vous pouvez commencer à explorer les sons de base de MainStage qui incluent ceux de Garageband et comprennent le contrôle par le souffle.
Nous n'avons pas encore annoncé d'éléments sur le prix et la disponibilité de la nouvelle carte de synthèse mais nous le ferons prochainement. Pour le moment nous pouvons répondre à quelques questions en privé mais nous ne sommes pas prêts à donner plus d'informations publiquement.
Dans tous les cas, nous ferons en sorte que les utilisateurs actuels ne soient pas désavantagés par rapport aux acheteurs du futur Sylphyo avec carte de synthèse intégrée.
To get the best of Garageband's sounds, you should set the velocity to a fixed value of 100 or 127 (in the Settings menu, in the MIDI Mappings section). As Garageband translates the breath intensity values sent by the Sylphyo to volume changes, setting a fixed velocity allows you to benefit from the maximum sound amplitude (it'll sound less "tiny").
However, while compatible, the sounds of Garageband aren't made specifically for wind controllers, so it's likely that you'll find them a bit lifeless anyway. Our user guide has a list of other virtual instruments that you might want to try out.
In addition, if you own Reaktor and acoustic instrument simulations are your thing, you also might want to get the free Silverwood and Silverwood Bb Clarinets patches (the last one sounds excellent).
Thanks for the information. It's weird because our batteries are in accordance with international air transportation standards.
Anyway, some users from the United States managed to buy it from Woodbrass or MusicStore.
It's something we're regularly thinking about, but that isn't really simple to implement, notably because the MIDI protocol makes it hard to work with, and because there are few synths out there that understand the relevant MIDI messages. Anyway, MIDI isn't designed from the ground up to allow you to play outside the 12-tone equal temperament (12-TET), so a popular approach is to let your synth or virtual instrument handle this.
You might want to look at synths or virtual instruments that are explicitly designed for this (look for terms like microtuning), like the Samplemodeling virtual instruments.
In general, they allow you to define the exact frequency (or offset from a base frequency) of each of the 12 tones (C, C#, D, D#, E, F… B) that can be sent by your MIDI controller.
Are you on the latest firmware version? If not, try to update your Sylphyo first. We fixed some bugs with touch sensing since the earlier versions.
What fingering do you use? What could happen is that sometimes your left index finger, or your left thumb, or any other upper finger slowly drifts from its original position, and the touch sensor considers that the finger isn't touching the key anymore. The resulting fingering is sometimes not "understood" (because without the left index key it doesn't correspond to an actual recorder fingering anymore, for instance), and in this case the Sylphyo just stays on the current note.
If you see this happening and you want to correct it, just release all keys for a second and place your fingers back in the desired position. To avoid this situation in the first place, you might want to make sure the fingers that touch the keys are placed in the center of the keys, and that you touch new keys by hitting them a bit more frankly (as the touch sensor might have trouble when trying to recognize a slowly approaching finger).
Thanks again. I think the battery indicator may just not be very accurate. I thought I saw a release note about percentage of battery (release notes for v1.1.0, "Fixed the battery percentage icon."), but mine only aways show full battery. Is there a setting to get it to show percentage?
@join Merci pour ta réponse ! Sur mon Ipad, j'ai trouvé une flûte à peu près potable sur un synthétiseur yamaha gratuit, et un violon un peu audible sur le gadget marseille (gratuit) de Korg. Sinon, c'est le vide pour l'instant...
Je vais explorer le lien que tu m'as envoyé en tout cas...
Actually I did not find the time to update my Sylphyo, but I'm so looking forward to do it soon, when I got vacation. I read in the release notes, that you installed a possibility to change the left Pinky function to "flat" instead of "Sharp". Thanks so much!! I'm so excited to try it out!
greetings, mosquito :-)
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org : 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 email@example.com. On attend votre mail !
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!
@join J'ai craqué...
Commandé chez Woodbrass
Livré fin de semaine prochaine !
P.S. je serai très intéressé de faire parti des alpha ou beta testeurs.
Je suis à la retraite , donc j'ai du temps et c'était une partie de mon travail !...
The MIDI In can be used as a MIDI input when using the MIDI receiver as a standard Class Compliant USB MIDI interface.
This is only possible when the Sylphyo Controller is Off, as this input is replaced by the Wireless MIDI input when the Sylphyo is Off.
@join Well, I am no sure. One option, as you has said, is to chose only one escale each time (c mayor, a minor, g mayor and so on). The other idea would be to use the 8 keys, each one for 1 note. And the 3 position of the the octava key for 3 other notes. And the slider for another note. This way we have the 12 notes!
Bien sûr, vous pourrez essayer le Sylphyo à Musicora. Nous communiquerons sur le site ou la newsletter pour d'éventuels autres événements dans l'année.
(J'ai supprimé votre message dans l'autre partie du forum)
The problem is not with the MIDI message, which can be easily transformed, but how it is emited...
It is actually very good for its purpose, a kind of "after touch", but not as a regular controller like the inclination which works perfectly.
There is nothing we can do until the two axis can work in the same manner :-(
To give a complementary answer, it really depends on your tablet, on the Android version, and on the synth software you're planning to use. As Laurent said, Android isn't a good option for musical performance, but here are some pointers if you're determined to try and use the Sylphyo with your tablet.
First, you must ensure that your tablet can work as a USB Host; i.e., that you can plug, for instance, a mouse or a USB flash drive, and that your tablet can access it. I think you can easily get this kind of information with a quick Google search.
You'll also need a USB-OTG adapter that allows you to connect your Android tablet to the receiver device of the Sylphyo.
Then, your version of Android must be understand USB-MIDI. As USB-MIDI support seems to have been introduced in Marshmallow, I guess there's pretty good support for any kind of device, but I haven't tried it (we don't have any Android device here at Aodyo).
And finally, you will have to find a synth application that supports MIDI devices connected through USB. A synth that responds correctly to wind controllers might be even harder to find (there are some in iOS, but I don't know for Android). You might have to look into the settings of the app to enable and configure the MIDI connection.
If you want to go down this route, I suggest that you follow video tutorials such as this one (but instead of connecting a MPKmini, you'll be connecting the receiver device, and you'll be playing from the Sylphyo). Don't hesitate to report on your progress here!
@Laurent_AODYO Great. Thank you. I read on your main website about your collaboration with Pedro Eustache. Wow! I used to listen over and over his Youtube video playing the Armenian duduk. Such a haunting instrument! And I love that you all are so open to having more of the traditional instrument fingers and sounds on the Sylphyo. By the way, if you want to skype, I can show you the fingering of the 8 hole bamboo xiao in person. You can email me.
Maybe to overcome the disadvantage of transposing on the Sylphyo one could use a transpose midifilter in Cantabile instead (I am planning something similar using both Cantabile and a neat midi plugin called Cales from CodeFN42 which can filter incoming notes to any scale)
Videos are coming! Every week we work on new content! But we haven't mastered the Xpression yet, so we won't do a video about it if we can't demonstrate the awesome little features that work great with the Sylphyo! Of course you'll be able to test both if you come see us at Musikmesse.
We didn't start to work on such topic because there was enough work providing more fingering first before trying to provide a new one dedicated to the Sylphyo. In any case, such a fingering, should be based on an existing instrument with some additional fingerings (in a similar manner as what we did first with the recorder fingering that tolerates both modern and baroque recorder fingering altogether, with some sax and clarinet player friendly additional fingering). Maybe we would need to setup a fingering editor first to be able to experiment on such a topic.
