Hohner announces the introduction of a series of revolutionary new apps for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch: The Hohner SqueezeBox.
Mimicking the layout of Hohner's iconic Corona Classic diatonic accordion, these intuitive virtual accordion apps feature a super responsive, three-row fingerboard that plays and sounds like the traditional instrument.
The Hohner SqueezeBox apps allow musicians to practice chord combinations, scales, and songs on-the-go in five different key combinations and colors. Headphones can be used for private practice, or the audio output of the virtual accordion can be amplified by plugging into computer speakers, or other sound enhancing devices.
Players may select to have the note names displayed on the large white pearloid buttons. With the touch of a button, the tonality can be changed from "wet tuning" giving an animated sound, to "dry tuning".
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.
BbEbAb is commonly used for Vallenato and Merengue.
Be sure to check out the "Real Players, Real Music" videos on the app website.
Want to play in all the keys? Download all five Hohner SqueezeBox apps: Hohner-GCF, Hohner-FBbEb, Hohner-EAD, Hohner-ADG, and Hohner-BbEbAb.
Hohner-GCF Mini, Hohner-FBbEb Mini, and Hohner-EAD Mini are also available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Q: I have an iPad with iOS5 and the sound stops when I put four fingers on the screen.
A: Go into the iPad Settings app, and disable the "Multitasking Gestures" feature. This feature creates issues for all apps like mine that use more than 3 fingers on the screen at a time.
Q: I'm not hearing any sound, help!
A: Make sure that the mute switch on your device is turned off.
New feature: Tablature display!
Please visit the app website for a link to over 500 free songs in tablature format provided by Reyes Accordions!
