eskin Posted December 1, 2009 Share Posted December 1, 2009 (edited) Here's my follow on to 3QuarterSet... "Concertina" is a very high quality Anglo Concertina for the iPhone and iPod Touch (2nd Generation). http://www.tradlessons.com/ConcertinaApp.html To play, simply tip to the left for a bellows push note, or to the right for a bellows pull note, and press a button. The PUSH/PULL display shows which direction the bellows is going. You may reverse the bellows while pushing a button simply by tipping in the opposite direction. Multiple buttons may be pressed at the same time to play chords. Learning mode (touch the '?' icon) shows the note names for each button when pushed or pulled. Adjust the tilt sensitivity and volume on the settings page. The button layout is based on a 16-key modified Jeffries style for playing traditional Irish dance tunes in the most common keys. Uses extremely high-quality audio samples recorded from a high-end Anglo C/G concertina. Just submitted to the iTunes App Store for review, when available it will be $0.99. After a while practicing with the app, it really starts to feel like playing the real thing. This will be a great way to expose people to the instrument and will create, I hope, a whole generation of people able to play Anglo and looking to buy real instruments.
