A One And A Two…

Now I think I may have seen it all — Roland is now building, of all things, a digital accordion.

Roland is pleased to introduce another milestone in digital musical instrument history —the V-Accordion. Models FR-7 and FR-5 are the first instruments of their type to successfully integrate powerful digital technology such as new Physical Behavior Modeling (PBM) into a traditional accordion design, offering performance features and authentic sounds that appeal to a wide range of musical styles.

Wide range of musical styles, they say. Right. I suppose one good thing about it is that you can change its voice so it doesn’t sound like an accordion.



  1. Bellows are what give you control over the dynamics. Play a chord and you can swell it, and make it die away again. Try doing that on a piano! :-)
