Hohner Melodeon Pro - Two-Row Diatonic Accordion
By Michael Eskin
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Matching the layout of Hohner's iconic Double-Ray Black-Dot diatonic melodeon, this intuitive virtual instrument features a super responsive fingerboard that plays and sounds like the traditional instrument in the most common two-row tunings of B/C, C#/D, and D/G, as well as an extended B/C+ layout with four chromatic buttons on a partial third row.
The app supports both Audiobus and Inter-App Audio for use with GarageBand and other multi-track recording apps.
The Hohner Melodeon app allows musicians to practice tunes on-the-go. Practice in headphones, or plug into amplified speakers for live performance.
Simply touch in the bellows area to toggle between bellows push and pull, then play on the buttons.
Since you may want to play chords with more than 3 or 4 fingers, you'll need to turn off "Multitasking Gestures" in your iPad's Settings, under General/Multitasking Gestures.
Touch the sliders icon at the upper right side of the screen to bring up the controls where you can select the tuning (B/C, B/C+, C#/D, or D/G), and control the volume and reverb settings.
Touch the "?" to toggle the note names On/Off.
Touch the "i" button to bring up the help screen.
All settings are saved when you exit the app and restored the next time you run it.
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.
