Hohner announces the introduction of a revolutionary new app for the iPhone: The Hohner Mini-SqueezeBox.
Mimicking the layout of Hohner's iconic Corona Classic diatonic accordion, this intuitive virtual accordion app feature a super responsive, three-row fingerboard that plays and sounds like the traditional instrument and now plays in all three of the most popular tones: EAD (Mi), FBbEb (Fa), and GCF (Sol).
Simply touch in the bellows area to toggle between bellows push and pull, then play on the buttons.
Touch the sliders icon at the upper right side of the screen to bring up the controls where you can select the tone (EAD, FBbEb, or GCF) and control the volume and reverb settings.
The Hohner Mini-SqueezeBox app allow musicians to practice chord combinations, scales, and songs on-the-go. Headphones can be used for private practice, or the audio output of the virtual accordion can be amplified by plugging into computer speakers, or other sound enhancing devices.
Players may select to have the note names displayed on the large white pearloid buttons.
This app is ideal for the beginning student or professional musician who needs a simple carry-on companion to compliment his or her actual accordion. While not meant to be a replacement for a real accordion, the app is a convenient and easy tool for practicing, learning, or teaching.
