    Great stuff Paul.
    I am working on trying to mimic a sound that I am pretty sure I can do. I want to fake a Tex-Mex button accordion. The problem I am having is that I need to play 2 notes at one time and in some cases 3 — My Yamaha chorus (SPX90II) doesn’t sound right at all. I can play the high line of the sheet music, DRY, and then I want to use a sustain pedal from a midi organ to kick in the second voice. In this case exactly 4 semitones below the dry note. In other words 2 notes lower (D4, B4). The second tone chorus would be the above group and the same note as the dry note only one octave lower (D4, B4, D3).
    I will be playing an alto, or a C-Melody.
    I can also use a Yamaha WX5, with an accordion patch (patchman patches sound killer) and then pump the analog-out from my mixer into the voiceworks. I love the WX-5, but I can’t tongue it fast enough to make the polkas sound convincing.

    Would you have any interest in taking a look at some sheet music, and MP3 of the music, and give it a try for me before I go and spend money on a box that may no please me.

    Thanks — Will Schmit (grandson of Bill Schmit – Smitty and the Boys)
