Hohner announces the introduction of a revolutionary new app for the Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch: the Hohner SqueezeBox.
Mimicking the layout of Hohner’s iconic Corona Classic diatonic accordion, this intuitive virtual accordion app feature a super responsive, three-row fingerboard that plays and sounds like the traditional instrument. The Hohner SqueezeBox allows 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 have the optionto display the note names on the large white simulated pearloid buttons and with the touch of a button, the tonality can easily be changed from “wet tuning” for a more animated sound, to “dry tuning.”
“SqueezeBox is ideal for the beginning student or professional musician who needs a simple carry-on companion to compliment his or her actual accordion” commented Accordion Product Manger Gilbert Reyes Jr. “It’s great for Tex-Mex, Conjunto, Norteño, Cajun, Zydeco, Vallenato, French Canadian, Blues, or any style of music. While not intended to replace a real accordion, the app is a convenient and easy tool for practicing, learning, or teaching.”
The Hohner SqueezeBox App is available on the iTunes App Store for $1.99 in the following key combinations: Hohner-GCF, Hohner-FBbEb, Hohner-EAD, Hohner-ADG, and Hohner-BbEbAb. The Hohner-Mini version is available in GCF for the iPhone and iPod Touch at $.99.
