A real vs. virtual instrument boxing match... (bad pun, I'm sorry)

I wrote the app many months ago. It allowed me to get familiar with the scales so that when I received my real Double-Ray a few weeks ago, I was very quickly able to bootstrap playing basic tunes on the instrument. Quite an interesting experiment!

Fun, as always, Michael. It does make me (briefly) want to go out and buy one o' they iYokes.

Now, are you giving it away free to Chiffers? Or is that offer only for your real friends over at the session.org?

:D

[heh heh]

Hey Michael,

My father called me up a couple of weeks ago to tell me had bought himself a "new toy". He purchased an iPad 2 much to my surprise. So as soon as we drove up with the kids to visit him, I made sure to buy your B/C Hohner app and mess around with it.

Having never touched anything more than piano accordions before, this was literally/virtually my first time trying out a 2 row button box. It was such fun to see the look of disbelief on my folks faces when they came downstairs for breakfast. There I was, sitting on the couch with the iPad leaning on my chest as I tapped away a rudimentary version of "The Musical Priest" (which I'd quietly been learning the night before while everyone slept!)

Anyway, well done on the application! So much fun to practice with. I mean, why spend $800-$1,000 on a Hohner Morgane (or Double Ray) when I can practice with your app first and get the basics down? :D

Cheers! :thumbsup:

Matt

That's awesome, thanks for letting me know. I'm having a great time learning on the real Double-Ray, and find the app very handy for practicing where it just wouldn't be practical to have a real instrument, like when I waiting for an oil change on my car before the trip I'm currently on.
