  1. Hallo Dirge, to add my contribution: The file size is determined by the settings the last time you export it. In your case that seems to be exporting from Audicity. The most important settings are the sample rate (to compare with the resolution in picture = how many pixels) and the bit rate what determines how much compression is used while making the file. The settings in Audicity are to be found in the menu under preferences. In the pop-up menu there are several tabs, but "Quality" and "File Formats" are the ones you need. They look like this: Here the default sample rate is in my case 44100 Hz (or 44.1kHz). For your Debussy piece this was set to the lowest possible value: 11025Hz Here under MP3 Export setup the bit rate is in my case set to 128 (kbps). For your Debussy piece this was set to 32. So I'd suggest you set these values as they were for your Debussy piece (sample rate 11025Hz, bit rate 32) and see if this gives the required result. Hope this visualisation clarifies.
  2. As a PDF download from Alex or in hard copy by post if there are any left. Roger Gawley has a point though, the book was written with diatonic button accordions in mind. Some of that (very little really) transfers to the anglo but precious little to the English. If you just love pretty music books and you're happy with the melody alone however ... Should I summon her to answer your plea? Pete. All of the information is at http://accordeonaire...c-liaisons.html Thanks.
  3. It's available as a PDF download on free-reed.co.uk: http://www.free-reed...tinaworkhop.pdf
  4. Ther is a Belinda Waltz on Masters Of The Concertina - Gordon Cutty & Tommy Williams. The same rendition? A 40 seconds impression on CDuniverse.com. Track 27.
  5. There is a new video from Theodore Kloba, C.net member with the "other" concertina. Not yet spotted here, is it? End of Summer Waltz - Theodore Kloba
  6. And see the great diagrams by William Meredith for where to find the chords on your concertina: (Click to enlarge) For further elucidation see WM's article at "the other side" of C.net: http://www.concertin...ish_chords.html
  7. You don't need a smartphone or a screenshot to see the difference: Scroll down on the page you're looking at to the bottom left. There you can choose between "IP.Board" and "IP.Board Mobile". If your signed in on C.net your last choice will be remembered in your account. After using the Mobile mode on my phone, my browser shows the Mobile mode on my PC as well.
  8. Simon Thoumire does that in slower tunes: just to colour the character of the sound, especially for longer notes at the end of the line. For example: As a more obvious effect in And in an more delicate way in (well recognizable in 0:37 - 0:42) As I just learned in this thread technically this is tremolo, but its musical function is very comparable to vibrato on other instruments; on a violin for instance.
  9. And this is what is going on in Leonie's world: new generation's Boeremusiek!
  10. Have you seen Henrik Müller's Slide Engine? http://www.concertinamatters.se/

  13. What is Hallelujah Al doing there in front of Alan Day's camera? Anyway, it's the same room, isn't it?
  14. My solution as well. I don't remember the price, but it wasn't much.
  15. Short for Cecilia, patron saint of musicians? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecilia http://www.wga.hu/fr.../1/cecilia.html In the Netherlands lots of brass bands, choirs and so on established in the late 19th and early 20th century are called St.Cecilia or St. Caecilia.
  16. And you cannot edit the post title. Great to welcome you as a C.net member!
  17. Oh, he knows. =) Here he explains why: http://www.concertin...nique/index.htm
  18. Or this: Not as slow as Red Red Rose, but at a gentle speed and with a great rythm section.
