Electronic wind instrument
Expressive: One Sylphyo, endless possibilities. The Sylphyo is designed to reproduce the air flow of acoustic instruments, allowing you to achieve pianissimo or fortissimo dynamics, to play staccato or legato, and to perform many wind instrument tonguing techniques.
Using its slider and its inertial sensors, you can bend notes upwards or downwards, achieve great glissandi, or completely transform the timbre of your sound over up to seven octaves.
Mobile: Pull it out of your bag, turn it on, and strike up the band! Play everywhere—at home, in the car or in the plane—without bothering anyone, using the headphones output. And thanks to the Link receiver, your Sylphyo becomes a wireless instrument that you can play on any sound system. Leave your Link in the control room, and move freely on stage with your Sylphyo! With its USB and MIDI outputs, the Link receiver also allows you to fully enjoy the world of computer music, allowing you to connect to a computer, an external synthesizer, or to your favourite groovebox or sampler, all this wireless from the Sylphyo!
The Sylphyo and its Link receiver both have the new Aodyo synth board under the hood. With it, you don’t need additional hardware or software anymore. It offers a wide range of high-quality sounds that are perfectly tailored to the Sylphyo and all its expressive controls.
We just call them “sounds”, but they’re much more than simple presets. Each one of them is a vast sound universe: while playing, you can steer your timbre and tone through a rich multi-dimensional space of filters, effects, and morphings. With all these modulations combined, each sonic universe in fact offers a wide range of extremely diverse sound variations.
Advanced mappings: a direct response to the various controls of the Sylphyo. “Mapping” describes how each control of the Sylphyo can influence various aspects of your sound. We designed the mapping of each sound universe to harness all the possible expressive capabilities of the instrument, while allowing interesting variations in tone color and effects.
Evolutions: a new sound every month, and soon an editor to make new ones. We provide free software upgrades on our website, including fresh new sounds. Updates often also include new expression capabilities, making your Sylphyo a constantly evolving instrument.
MIDI controller: the whole world of computer music in one breath. As your Sylphyo is also a MIDI controller, you can also play any virtual instrument or synthesizer. The Sylphyo can control them all, whether they respond to breath control or velocity only. In addition, you can setup your Sylphyo to freely assign its controls to any MIDI Control Change, or by using MIDI Learn on your preferred plug-in or DAW. The Sylphyo will bring a breath of fresh air to the MIDI instruments you know and love!
