Thanks all for recommending the editor. I spent an hour or two yesterday getting some of that figured out and managed to get a couple of homemade accordion sounds that almost fit what I'm looking for. I'm a little disappointed you don't get to hand tweak the detuning on each individual reed, but I've found a setting for a 3 reed set (all 8') that comes reasonably close. It's amazing the difference in the choice of the individual reeds themselves and how they respond to the musette setting.

The first thing I did to my V-accordions was to turn off velocity sensitivity. I’d rather control the volume with the bellows.
I have a FR-1xb, I thought the velocity setting was only for the MIDI signals that it sends out!

I don't have a 1XB but the velocity is great for things like piano, drum, and other percussive style instruments and offers you a way to control different instruments independently at the same time. ie: Orgain and piano sounds... both can be turned on but you can decide which is the predominant instrument by either hitting the keys harder or softer vs pulling harder or gentler on the bellows.

I don't do it too much on the right hand but definitely control the drum volume on the left in relation to bass volume fairly regularly.

Instead of concerning with a bunch of sets you need to memorize, start with a good master accordion to your liking. Then add from there. Always good to pull out your accordion reed chart for reference. Nothing new in purchasing a vaccordion or first synth. Always satisfying to create your own sounds and style…
