(Transverse) Flute fingering



  • I am using the flute fingering. It is quite similar to transverse flute fingering, so I like it. And I very much like the idea of playing a higher octava just removing the left index. Nevertheless, there are a couple of things that I miss:

    1. To be able to play F sharp with both fingers (ring and middle finger) in all the octaves.
    2. When I play in a higher octava, (using the sistem of removing the index) I would like to be able to do it with all the notes, the A included (except B. I understand it would be impossible since I have to use the index for B). In fact I don't understand why A is not included (perhaps because It would be the same position tha C in the real transverse flute? If that is the case, it doesn't matter, since you have not included this C position: if I try, sound the precedent note ).
      It's a little complicated. I hope I have explained clear enough.
      Thank you very much and congratulations for Sylphyo. I am really happy with it.


  • A correction: instead the emoticon (I wonder how it has appeared) I wanted to write "B".



  • Hi Flautista,

    Regarding point 1, I just check it out and noticed the middle finger F sharp when getting one octave up removing the left index is missing. This should be fixed in the next firmware release.

    Regarding point 2,, we just felt it could be confusing to get higher with the left index up octave up trick, but we could indeed consider getting a little higher.

    Musically

    @flautista We are about to revise the Flute fingering for an upcoming release.

    We tried to improve it by adding much of the standard and alternate fingerings, but we feel that between the highest A and the high C (similar position as in the recorder, XoxoOooX), the high C should take precedence because it is closer to actual flute fingerings.

    So from the upcoming release onwards, you will have to let go of the thumb key to perform the highest A. In other words, XoxoOooX will do a C1, and OoxoOooX will do a A1.

    I hope it sounds reasonable to you!
