Matching the layout of Hohner's iconic Double-Ray Black-Dot diatonic accordion, 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.
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.
MIDI Control: The instrument may be played via MIDI from a MIDI keyboard or other MIDI file player or controller apps.
First launch the Hohner Melodeon Pro app, then choose "HohnerMelodeon" as the destination sound module in the CoreMIDI settings of other apps.
