Thank you Piotr.

Re: Roland orchestral sounds

If you are interested in “only” one aspect of an edit, for example how the reverb changes the sound, then why not edit from the accordion itself as the turn-around will be faster and more direct. The editor is best left for designing whole sounds from scratch and saving them in the appropriate slots.

Happy thanksgiving and all the very best for your son.
A strong recovery is an excellent sign and with modern treatment and follow up support it bodes very well.

Re: Opera Singer Looking for Advice

I look forward to hearing your results.
I was in Italy [emoji634] a few years ago and heard two great street performers play accordion and opera. They had a large crowd and were excellent so it can sound great. Playing and singing at the same time will be a challenge. Good luck.

Re: some music from me

Interesting Jerry.
I’ve always intuitively thought it was an issue of bellows sensitivity.
I’ll try a low sensitivity and see if I get a more accurate bellows shake.
To be honest, I’m not much good at it with my acoustics so I’m not too hopeful 😉

Re: some music from me

Very nice playing and a very jolly piece of music.
You managed a bellows shake with the Roland which is not so easy unless you make the bellows sensitivity high (which it looks as if you have done).

Good luck with the pen drive.

Shepard tone illusion

Just spotted this (rambling) video on Reddit about the Shepard tone illusion with the accordion bass (Stradella). It’s an interesting subject and one which we all subconsciously make use of when playing and arranging. Do any of you notice how the registers you select in the bass effect how you perce...

Re: some music from me

It doesn’t make normal sense that a USB pen drive won’t work with your Roland. I have tried all sorts in mine and it works fine. Can you save anything via usb? If not I fear there is an issue with your accordion.

Re: What did you play before the accordion?

I started piano at around 8 years old. Still play regularly. It’s an amazing instrument that has given me huge pleasure and allowed me to take part in lots of musical events, groups etc.

Re: AI generated folk tunes

That’s an interesting one to play with. I wonder if it can create a bass line in the future. Maybe extend to other styles.

Orchestra tone #03 is called “classic piano”. Is this “grand piano” enough?

Re: accordions on planes...

It is a real shame that you cannot trust baggage handlers to look after a musical instrument. I’m not sure it’s an intelligence issue though as those poor guys have to work with the tools provided and achieve a productivity higher than the tools are designed for. The way of the world I’m afraid.

I guess some nice person will have to write a routine that calls “one by one” each user program and assemble a listing in a printable format. Any takers?

Thanks Eddy.
When you say you “hate them” do you mean the recording or the mp3 format in general?
