Description

Canntina is a high-quality, easy-to-play, MacCann-style duet concertina.

The button layout matches the center portion of the right side of a MacCann-style duet concertina, providing a Treble range from G4 to F#6 which can be transposed up or down up to one octave in semitone increments.

To play, simply press the buttons.

Multiple buttons may be pressed at the same time to play chords.

Touch the '?' icon to show the note names for each button.

Touch the "i" to bring up the settings page where you may transpose the pitch up or down up to one octave in semitone increments.

Touch the number to the right of the transpose slider to reset the transpose to zero.

When transposed, the note labels do not change, just the pitch produced.

Uses extremely high-quality audio samples recorded from a real concertina.

Ratings and Reviews

Helpful for beginner

I love this app. Very fun as a practice tool for a duet. I am a beginner so I like being able to easily see the key pattern to help get the song into my head and fingers. I had trouble with getting the sound to work at first but then realized I had my phone's mute button switched on. Silly mistake. Nice app.

Not faithful to real concertina

Unfortunately, it is not possible to play this app like a concertina. Standard Maccann fingering involves playing two buttons simultaneously with a single finger regularly. This app does not support that, so it is impossible to use standard Maccann chord patterns on this app.

Developer Response ,

Sorry, but that's just not possible with touch screen technology.
