AODYO SYLPHYO Crowdfunding campaign started

Post by HUROLURA » Wed Jun 03, 2015 6:17 am

Hello

Just couldn't resist to inform you that our Crowdfunding Campaign for our new Wireless MIDI Wind Controller has just started.

No DSP inside yet, but who knows ... we already have an internal expansion port for a small sound board inside the instrument.

Here you can also here a few sound clips played with Samplemodelling Virtual Instruments:

and Eurorack Modular Elements from Mutable Instruments:

https://soundcloud.com/aodyo/sylphyoelements-duo

I still have to make some examples using the SYLPHYO and some Scope Synths or the Mod IV.
Idea is also to provide a companion SCOPE plug-in for the SYLPHYO dedicated to wind playing technics for controlling the sound.

Any support would be welcome and please just spread the word.

Link to the crowdfunding campaign is available bellow:

Good luck! The product looks nice and solid.

I tried the WX7 for my VL7, but didn't like it. It was way harder for me to learn than just playing on the keyboard with a BC1. And I used to play a clarinet!

wow, missed this... but looks awesome. The EWI is accessible, but it is what it is.. As a former clarinet player, I want to be able to control some pitch with embouchure.. doesn't look like that's in the plans though, damn pitch bend slider again.

Ken have you seen the BC device from homberg-research.de
Pressure seems to be applicable to pitch.

Hi Ken,

To be quite fair it IS in our plan to have some pitch with embouchure ... but not for the initial release.
We are modifying the current design to allow the first unit to get this type of upgrade though.

Depending on the mapping you decide to use, you could also use the breath control signal to also have an influence on pitch but it is hard to separate both signal without any extra sensor
