I have experience with another brand of synthetic chanter reeds, and the pitch doesn't alter during warm up but the playability does slightly -- about 5 minutes in it eases a hair and takes a bit less air, and then stays that way 'til I'm done playing. No problem with moisture.

I've seen a video of a different brand of synth chanter reed than I use, being dipped in water and then played. Moisture isn't an issue with synth chanter reeds, generally.

Good luck.
