I agree with your point and would find it very useful indeed. As I play different instruments, a possibility of really quickly changing the instrument , but having the Sylphyo "nearby" would be welcome.

RE: Recorder fingerings issues
Thank you so much for your reply! I would love it, if you consider this option- half tone lower. I spoke with some friends about my issued, who play flute and recorder, some play in a woodwind ensemble. They had the same thoughts about it. So I think, a recorder fingering with "half tone lower" could be definetely interesting for other recorder players as well, to play kind of more fluidly.
Thanks so much for considering the possibility.

Recorder fingerings issues
Meanwhile I bought a Sylphyo and I love it. I'm looking forward to buy the sound extension card and the active mouthpiece, when you're finished...
What I noticed, confusing me, is the fingering of "Recorder"... When you play a recorder, it is generally like: close a hole with the finger and the note/ tone becomes lower...open a hole, the note becomes higher. In general- the more holes- beginning from the side of the mouthpiece of a flute - are closed, the lower a note becomes...
The sylpho performs it the other way round, when it comes to the half tone button at the side. When you push/ touch (like close...) the half tone button at the side, the Sylphyo performs a half tone higher, not lower. That is quite confusing to me while playing. I have played recorder for many years, and I thinking I could play the Sylphyo way more fluidly, if the side-button (half tone button) would set the tone half a note lower.
Is there a possibility for me to change the "program" of this button in this way (half tone lower)?
Or do you have a special reason,why you have chosen this function (half tone higher)?
Thanks so much for a reply and greetings from Germany! (And I have fun with the Sylphyo anyway...!! It performs great connected with my Roland JD Xi. I love it!)
RE: Cleaning inside
I have a second question concerning the "extension card": If I would purchase a Sylphyo now, will I be able to build in the "extension card" to my Sylphyo on my own, or is it necessary, to send the Sylphyo to you/ to a service center/ bring to my local store (musicstore in Cologne is nearby), so they build it in
Thanks so much for a reply, because I really want to buy one soon... :-) :-)
I'm thinking about buying a Sylphyo soon, but there is one important question left for me. How about cleaning the instrument from the inside, where the air flows through. Our breath contains moisture. As I played recorder flute for many years, I know how important it is to clean the flute, avoid keeping moisture in the inside. Also it seems important to me to keep the instrument hygienic. What can you tell me about this issue? Thanks for a reply, mosquito
