RE: Cleaning inside
Hello, it´s me again :-) with a question about cleaning the Sylphyo. Meanwhile I played my instrument for longer periods and- of course- it developed condensation water.
I bought a soft recorder cleaning stick an cleaned it carefully from the top. But still there ist the problem, that at the "bottom part" of the Sylphyo, condensation water is running out while playing a while.
As the hole in the bottom ist quite narrow (about 5 mm), I did not manage to pull a soft cloth through the Sylphyo- and I was afraid, to break some parts inside.
Could you please tell me, where in the inside of the wind channel are the "sensors" or kind of delicate parts, where I should be careful? As well, after playing the instrument, I´m concerned about the fluid, that is left inside from playing the instrument (the condensation water...), can it harm the electronics, when I put down my Sylphyo? Where exactly are the sensitive electronics located, I should be extra careful with?
Thank you so much for an answer!
(By the way, I have so much fun with my Sylphyo...!)
Greetings from Bonn,
Update- first impression
Meanwhile I updated my Sylphyo and I love the improvements. It seems to me, the responsiveness is even better - and there are more possibilities added, to communicate with my various different sound sources. Great!
I'm absolutely enthusiastic about the "left pinky/ half tone down" function. I use it with recorder fingering. It makes me play the instrument so much more "organic" and naturally. As it was my issues/ request- thanks so much for solving it!! :-)
I'm looking forward for upcoming news and especially the sound extension card, you are working on. I will definitely puchase as soon as it is available. :-)
Greetings from Germany and thanks for your great work,
RE: Recorder fingerings issues
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 :-)
RE: Un moyen de fixer le sylphyo autour du coup ? A way to hang the sylphyo like a saxophone ?
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
