Ratings and Reviews
Not ready for performance
It is very hard to control the volumes of each part. I couldn't get enough volume out of the bass part with bellows dynamics of my midi accordion. If I turn off expression in my accordion, then the treble is too loud. It seems that you have to adjust the volume of each part every time you start the app as you can't really save your settings. The accordion sound is quite good, but very little choice for the price. I didn't care for the guitar at all. Some other guitar sounds are available for purchase. Then again, the whole thing becomes too expensive.
Amazing Oberkrainer Sounds
I have been playing polka music focusing on the Oberkrainer sound for years. Finally this app provides the sounds for a solo player or a small band. The baritone is aggressive and has that pop. Bought the bass guitar sounds and they are awesome too. The main issue I have is that my accordion chords activate three notes to play a chord. The HDS app bases the chord on 1 note and is a sample. The sound is fantastic but when I play a C I get a C, E, and G together. The manufacturer of my midi is not responding to my questions. Updating a midi accordion is an expensive process. Anyway great app for what it does. Check out Turboreini on YouTube for detailed vids.
Just basics for $55 cost over $100 more to get it up to some decent sounds. Sample tank,cubasis and many reasonable apps out give 10 times more bang for the buck. So sorry I fell for the very evasive YouTube vids . Petition iTunes to allow trial before purchase. Going to stick to my daw and best service accordions. Don't buy this until they include the full accordion pack will a few more stars after sticker shock wears off .i must say the accordions sound good and after some doing I got good polkas out.so all in all its a good app but I will stand buy my feeling it cost too much for addition sounds. Please do an English manuals dont appear in audio buss and I don't see any activity in the app reviews what gives?
