I like the idea! Wonder how it tells whether you are pushing or pulling? Some sort of pressure sensor I guess - In which case I would assume that you can add emphesis by pushing or pulling harder. Wonder why it is only in 5 keys? I would have thought you could program it for any of the 12?

Anyway - I want one too:-)

Cheers

I like the sound. Now we can be heard ever alla them flailing string boxes. Of course, the down side is that now, it's just another type of eelectrawnik keyboard.

Not quite, EB - The Anglo Concertina is diatonic so you would need a mechanism to determine whether you were opening or closing the bellows. As I suggested earlier it could be some sort of pressure pad that would also allow emphasis depending how hard or softly you were pushing or pulling. Like any other inefficient anglo player I also suffer from running out of air:-( This could stop all that :-)

On concertina.info Chris Timson talks about an anglo he has which has been converted to a MIDI instrument by Roy Whiteley of Accordian Magic, and which he plays via a synthesiser. The concertina has pressure sensors which detect the direction in which the bellows are moving, but Chris's article doesn't say whether these also change volume. As it is a vintage instrument(and irreparable when Chris got it)it has the added advantage of being an attractive thing to see, rather than an oddly-shaped piece of plastic.

Maybe someone will now develop a second generation version which, while still being electronic of course, will also allow full in and out motion with a realistic feeling of resistance. With those modifications it would make for great a late-night practice tool! Although, come to think of it I guess a suitably malfunctioning "real" instrument would serve that purpose too. But for those who don't happen to have such a broken one...
