PSound Accordina


PSound Accordina

Reproduction of a Marcel Dreux Instrument

Accordina is a reed instrument, similar to the harmonica. It borrows its chromatic keyboard (44 notes) and professional hand made reeds from the accordion. PSound Accordina has been sampled with up to 9 layers and 3 Articulations for a more than 400 samples.

The Sound

  • The Instrument – The Accordina has 44 keys on a chromatic keyboard.
  • Recording – Paolo recorded the Accordina with a Neumann TLM103 large diaphragm microphone thru an amazing Apogee Symphony mkiI I/O converter with its own Mic Preamp card for the best audio resolution and musical details. All the samples are in 96kHz/24bit resolution!
  • Analysis – By a careful analysis of the sound I found a great variation of the harmonic spectrum during the dynamic range of the reeds. This fact depends on the high quality of the hand made reeds of the instrument.
  • Layers & Filters – Paolo used up to 9 dynamic layers and 2 round-robins for each note of the instrument.
