Accordion Switches in order from left to right:
Your accordion has 18 switches on the treble grille. These operate as follows. These are split into 4 parts with the first 9 switches being for treble, the next 4 for chords, the next 3 for bass and the final 2 for a 2nd treble percussive part.
The accordion will output treble, bass and chords all the time so that it works with any expander. The instruments switches just change the instrument on their part when they are switched on and are overridden by the next instrument change you make on that part. So if you switch the tab off it will still remain that instrument until you press a different one. i.e. the current instrument will always be the last one pressed on each part.
The General potentiometer is for the volume of the treble.
Flute, Clarinet, Sax, Trumpet, Strings, Kinura. These all change the treble instrument (channel 1) to the ascribed sound. Please make sure that your expander accepts program change messages to use these.
Vibrato – Puts vibrato on the treble
Short/Long – Puts a slight sustain on the treble part
On/Off – Turns off the treble part.
The Chord potentiometer is for the volume of the chords.
Chord on/off – Puts an accordion sound on the chords
Oboe – Puts an Oboe sound on the chords
Clavi – Puts strings on the chords
Vibrato – Puts vibrato on the chord part
The Bass potentiometer is for the volume of the bass.
Bass on/off – Puts an acoustic bass sound on the bass
Horn – Puts a horn on the bass
Celesta – Puts an accordion on the bass part
The Percussion potentiometer is for the volume of the percussion.
The percussive instruments are output on channel 4 so you must make sure that channel 4 is enabled on your expander.
