Re: Fr4x editor software

Amazing how life occupies even my shortest available free times so that ther is no real time to spend on the accordion and just fooling around. I downloaded the new editor for the 8X, tested it out once for like 2 minutes and have been unable to touch it since. Maybe later tonight. I might have to s...

Re: I need a fr 1 accordion review

...others amuse themselves. Get what makes you and your pocket book happy. If I were a classical accordion player, maybe invest in the top of the line... For personal amusement, this is what it is all about for me. I might pull a gig here and there but what makes it fun is that it is all about me a...

Re: practicing leaps in LH

I saw book 3 was available on amazon.com yesterday but this morning when I was going to pick it up, it is no longer available. I cannot find it anywhere online now.

Oh well, maybe in the future, not like I don't have other projects witing to happen and other method books to learn from. :)

Re: I need a fr 1 accordion review

I heard that they aren't as good as an acoustic in terms of bellows movement and sound related to it One can say that ALL Roland accordions have a bellows movement that is stiffer than a standard accordion. They also all improve over time, though they are never exactly like an acoustic accordion. O...

Re: LMMH v LMM ( piano accordion )

The Roland probably comes close to the sound of a bandoneon, but then again, we can argue that the Roland is not even a real accordion... lol

Re: practicing leaps in LH

Has anyone here used "Little Czerny for Accordion"? It came in three volumes; the third concentrated on the accordion's LH. Isn't it free-bass oriented ? I believe it is, and I certainly would not mind getting my hands on this set of 3. :) http://d2ydh70d4b5xgv.cloudfront.net/images/634a/4de3/634a4...

Re: Silent practice on acoustic accordion

The soundproofing of a room is the ideal solution, however, done properly can be quite expensive. I did some soundproofing of the ceiling in my basement so that the bass would not travel through the floors as much by using "Safe and Sound" and a dropped ceiling. It did add to the cost, but does prod...

Re: Silent practice on acoustic accordion

I've seen classifieds of accordions with "silent registers" for MIDI equipment. I don't know what that means. It is simply a register that blocks off all the acoustic reeds s that on the right hand you can use only the digital/electronic sounds. In my case, it looks like this. Note the register ide...

Re: Exclusivity.

Donn, what does the expression "to have that to fall back on" mean? I think it's a difficult expression, and I can't even find it on the web. It means we can use it in place of something else. For example, I can say something like "though I am an architect, my current career is making money as a mu...
