JIM D. said:There are fellow accordionist's & members here that prefer an acoustic box for practice & entertaining.
Of course I respect their preferences and enjoy playing my own acoustic accordions.
I've owned models of Roland digital accordions for 15 years now and come to realize that in 98% of my
performances, audiences & fellow musicians prefer me entertaining with a digital. There are exceptions
as if the group I work with has a bass & guitar player, well I prefer using an acoustic.
There are other benefits with a digital as a duo will sound like a trio, a trio will sound like a quartet and so on.
We all have preferences and I respect them. But you must admit that these YouTube digital performances with their
digital expansion sounds are VERY ENTERTAINING !!

Thanks for the clips. Sorry we didn't get your stories :-/, but I know what you mean by the site crashing: ran into that myself .
All this digitalisation reminds me of a sewing exposition I attended (to humour my wife).
One section of the expo was occupied by a series of "sewers" (as in needle and thread) enjoying tea and cake, while the digitalised sewing machines industriously got on with a variety of complicated stitching and embroidery, by themselves! :huh:
I guess, that's the coming future of instrumental music: a bunch of instruments playing themselves, while the musicians sit around having coffee and cake!

Make your selection with the correct input code and away you go. I actually like the sound of those, but wish they made them so they always finished a tune with the bellows closed. Spoils the whole experience.
Hello debra said:I watched these demos. I specifically want the accordion sound. For that it's nice that in this demo they play through the built-in speakers and record that instead of plugging in a jack. When plugged in the Evo is just a Roland. But unplugged you can hear what the wooden box does and I must say in the demo the accordion sounds are clearly better than what I have often heard from a Roland. Very interesting because the electronics is the same.
Of course it's not a surprise that the box really matters. That is true for acoustic accordions as well.

Thanks for reminding me about these, John ( Id forgotten )
