Ketron SD3

This sound module is probably the most advanced available producing sounds of a very high quality with many automatic settings.  We particularly like the ability to produce multi sounds on the right hand, left hand chord and bass variations, the ability to play harmonies automatically (for example a folk harmony played on the right hand instrument bit triggered in from the chords).  There are drum options for the left hand, the ability to record or save complex settings to disk.  There is an option of a vocal harmonizer or multi foot pedals to select options while playing.  Transpose and octave doubling are available.

The module is controlled by the midi signal from your accordion.  You may use the switches and preset / program buttons to make changes directly from the expander or suitable accordions can switch the program settings.

The midi channels are of course selectable and we can pre program the unit for you if desired.
