Many thanks for your reply. Yes, it is “yaw”. I don’t know any German, so I cannot comment on that particular linguistic appellation.
I appreciate your insight as to Aodyo’s intentions. But my original question remains: where exactly do they explain the yaw feature? Since this motion greatly increases the expressiveness of the instrument, why would they deliberately fail to mention it? Or have I just not looked in the right place? That is my question.
Pedro says that when he pointed out the yaw question to Aodyo (Jonathan, specifically) they had no response except to ask to see a video. He may make a demonstration in addition to mine when he has more time. Pedro was totally surprised when I explained the yaw feature to him. Why would a person who helped in the instrument’s design be unaware of this quite important and useful response?
My own direct inquiry to Aodyo has not received a reply yet.
I have no opinion as to whether the two responses should be combined or not. In my Reaktor program I have followed Pedro’s suggestion to process the R and L “roll” variables separately, as you can see in the two clips. I have been enjoying being able to control various synth parameters this way. But it would be quite an effort to set up and program another pair of these.
One final point: I also have a TEController MIDI device which I use as an accelerometer on my personal, custom wind controller. I was very surprised to see that its outputs seem to be exactly the same as Sylphyo’s! I can switch controllers and see no difference. And this includes the “roll/yaw” combination on a single MIDI CC.
Thanks for the discussion.
