AODYO Sylphyo

Finally a Midi Wind controller that comes with wireless Midi (and seems rather affordable).

Seemingly "Right Thumb Slide", Breath and Tilt and "shake" sensors (but unfortunately no "Bite", which I do like about the TEC BBC).

Seemingly no "trill" and "Below C" keys (I don't know if that hurts.)

Did anybody already test it ?

    I first heard about Sylphyo from an audiomodeling e-mail, so I went to the company web site. Big mistake, all they had in the first 4 videos was a bunch of nothing, just bragging about how great it was etc. with barely any sounds made with the instrument. I almost gave up but then I found the same link that MSchnell posted, the first one, and that is much better.

    Audiomodeling says all of their sounds work with the Sylphyo, and I would guess that samplemodeling sounds would also work.

    Don't know much else but I will keep looking. Also keep in mind that the Roland Aerophone really sounds good -just search for Alistair Parnell on youtube.

    It's now available lots of places, but not in USA. However a number of on-line places is likely to sell and ship to wherever you live.

    For example woodbrass currently shows the US price as $ 927.81 w free shipping. Not exactly a bargain, but that I believe includes the wireless adapter box.

    I see a lower price of 748.63 which is without the wireless box.

    Of course, one should hardly ever buy anything like this without having some hands on experience.
