Akkordica allows you to reproduce many different accordion types (diatonic and chromatic) for various genres of musical styles such as Folk, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Polka, Tango, Bal-musette, Cajun, Zydeco, Classical, Schrammelmusik, Klezmer, Levenslied, Sevdalinka, Boeremusiek, Forró, Merengue, Cueca, Milonga, Chamamé, Cumbia, Vallenato, Norteño, Tex-Mex, Saltarello, Tarantella, Ceol, Basque Trikitixa and Inuit music.

• The harmonica (known as the French harp or mouth organ) comes in two modes: natural and vibrato, and is used in many musical genres, especially blues, American folk music, classical music, jazz, country, and rock and roll.

    • ADSR envelope generator with Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release parameters:

    Ø Attack determines the time it takes for the note to get to the maximum level.
    Ø Decay determines the time it takes for the note to go from the maximum level to the sustain level (controlled by Sustain).
    Ø Sustain determines the level of the sound is played at while the note is held (after the other envelope states, Attack and Decay, have been completed).
    Ø Release determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) level when it is released.

    • Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected instrument.

    Ø Pitch Bend center position: is normal pitch.
    Ø Pitch Bend down: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the left.
    Ø Pitch Bend up: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved the right.

    • Low-Frequency Oscillator Controls: These knobs apply LFO modulation to the selected instrument. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo.

    Ø Rate: This knob controls the frequency. Turn clockwise for a faster modulation rate.
    Ø Depth: This knob controls the amplitude. With a lower setting, the resulting modulation is subtle, while a higher depth will result in a much more extreme effect.

    • Reverb built-in: provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the sound reflections from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an acoustically reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.

    • Filter Type. Combo box to switch between the following options:

    Ø Low Pass (LPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency lower than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies higher than the cutoff frequency.
    Ø High Pass (HPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency higher than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies lower than the cutoff frequency.
    Ø None: No filter is applied. 
    Ø Cutoff Frequency Filter: Sets the cutoff frequency for the low pass and high pass filters.

    • Amplitude Range parameter: It controls the loudness, the way in which we perceive amplitude. The sensitivity level is set by the user:

    Ø Amplitude range (low) - sets amplitude range, lower bound (dB) 
    Ø Amplitude range (high) - sets amplitude range, upper bound (dB)

    • Volume: Controls the volume of the virtual instrument.

    • Panning potentiometer control: Set the panning of the instrument. Adjusts the stereo pan position of the signal output, which determines how much of signal is sent to the left and right channels.

    • MIDI CC Automation: Implementation of MIDI Continuous Controller parameters for use with external hardware control via DAW, such as: LFO depth (CC#1), breath controller for harmonica, melodica and accordina presets (CC#2), expression (CC#11), volume (CC#7), pan (CC#10), balance (CC#8), filter cutoff (CC#74), ADSR (Attack: CC#73, Decay: CC#75, Sustain: CC#76, Release: CC#72) and reverb depth (CC#91).

    With Akkordica you can choose from a wide range of accordion, concertina, bandoneon, harmonica and melodica sounds, playing and feeling the traditional sounds as well as the built-in effects for the digital age.
