Dual Sylphyo Setup
I am wondering what the setup would be for two Sylphyo instruments. Assuming both are paired with Link units:
Does each Sylphyo and each Link need to be on separate channels?
If they happened to pair on the same channel, what would be the symptoms? I imagine this could happen if I had to re-pair "under the gun" (i.e. at a performance) and they wound up on the same channel.
Might there be a way to configure a Sylphyo / Link pair to use a specific channel?
Alternately, if I wanted to use a second Sylphyo as a "warm standby" (powered off, but ready to be turned on ...), I would like both the main and standby Sylphyo to be configured to talk to the same Link unit ... is that possible? Only one would be powered on at a time ...

Yes each Sylphyo and Link duo should be on separate channels (more than 64 possible channels).
If both Duo would be paired on the same radio channel, this would probably lead to interference and latency in the messages due to messages collision.
There is currently no way to select a specific channel (the channel is decided on the Link side and there is no user interface to select a specific channel on the Link).
The second warm standby solution wouldn't work as the pairing between a Sylphyo and a Link can only be achieved between 2 specific devices (one Sylphyo and one Link sharing a common "key")
@Laurent_AODYO Thanks for the info ... that clears things up.
So it sounds like the warm standby setup would be two Sylphyo ... (what is the plural of Sylphyo ... Sylphyos? Sylphyo? Sylphyae?) ... two Sylphyo and two Links with a MIDI-merge downstream of the Links. This would provide as hot a standby as I would like. It also opens possibilities with potentially other players, students, and prospective purchasers (except for sanitization issues ... hmmm ... another topic).
One more question:
I am guessing a Link only remembers one pairing connection? Unlike other devices I have that remember some (small) number of paired devices and recognize whichever ones are in the vicinity ...

@Clint Yes the Link only "remember" one pairing connection.
Unless you launch a pairing process from the Link side, it will just wait for communication from the associated Sylphyo.
(plural of Sylphyo is a good question. I would have used Sylphyos on my side. Similar question as how to name a Sylphyo Player - Sylphyonist ?)

This is good for your duo configuration. Each time a player switches on his/her Sylphyo, it should connect to the same Link=Synth.

From my (American English) perspective, I'm liking "Sylphyo" as the plural of "Sylphyo". That would make it a linguistic "invariant" (or "invariable") like "fish" and "aircraft". To my eyes / ears, "Sylphyos" is a bit clumsy.

Yes, good point. That's the way it should be ...
