conzertino Posted March 10, 2015 Share Posted March 10, 2015 Yesterday I finished the prototype of a 40 key English-system reedless concertina. On it's own it does not make any music, but it connects by bluetooth 4.0 to an Iphone or in my case, an Ipad. There is a load of different apps on the market - of varied quality-, which turn the note-information into sound. It has a pressure-sensor built in, but my app currently does not support channel-volume... So far it has the following features: switch between piccolo, treble, tenor, baritone and bass-range transpose to any key add an octave below and / or above select one out of 10 MIDI channels reset toggle pressure-control Under development is a sequencer, that allows to record one line and play along during replay. I am also right now designing an anglo and a Hayden-duet. Obviously such an instrument can not replace a good acoustic concertina, but it is fun, considerably cheaper and it will hopefully appeal to the younger generation... and it is a big relief to the house-wife or the fellow train-users, if one can practice with headphones;-). If there is a market, I might start making a few Here we are: http://youtu.be/nugTz-mpDJI... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
