Don Taylor Posted March 7, 2015 Share Posted March 7, 2015 This is the 'standard' 46 button layout for a Hayden concertina: I am contemplating the layout for a midi Hayden and, while it is easy and tempting to just add a gazillion extra buttons, I am mindful of David Barnert's objections to a large button field (http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=15879) and of my own ability to get lost even on a smaller button field. My question is: are there just one or two buttons on each side that are really worth adding to the 46 button layout, and why? (I assume that none should be removed). I should point out that, as a midi instrument, it will be easy to transpose the entire instrument so that playing in remote keys could be achieved with the flip of a switch. Thx. Don.
