BoxKeys - Piano Accordion with Three Reed Banks

BoxKeys - Piano Accordion with Three Reed Banks

       iOS iPhone

BoxKeys is an easy to play, authentic-sounding, 3-reed bank Irish piano accordion. It has a fully chromatic two-octave range from C4 to B5.

Please visit the app website for a live demonstration video!

Based on extremely high quality individual audio samples of each note of the three banks of a top quality Irish button accordion. Each note sample is 3.5 seconds long.

Touch the bank select buttons on the top of the screen to enable/disable or combine the individual reed banks. The volume of each reed bank may be set independently.

Optional volume tremolo effects may be added by sliding your finger up and down on the keys.

Touch the "i" icon to bring up the settings page. All settings saved when the app exits and restored next time it is run.

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

You may play along with the tunes on your iPhone or iPod Touch, just start the music before running BoxKeys. Using Apple's Settings app, you may configure your device to bring up the iPod music controls by double clicking the home button to change tracks within an album.

Audio samples graciously provided from an instrument owned by my friend John O'Hara.
