1 KApro Accordions Complete
1.1 What this Expansion Pack is All About
The modern accordion finds its roots in a patent (“Privilegium”) granted to Cyrill Demian and his sons Karl and Guido on May 23, 1829, Vienna, Austria. The Demians were organ and piano builders who had their origins in Transylvania.
The expression “accordion” which was coined for the new instrument by the Demians emphasizes the fact that the instrument had buttons or keys some of which activating “automatically coupled chords on the bass side” made up of three to five different notes. Accordions are box-shaped instruments of the bellows-driven free-reed aerophone type, see
Since their invention, the accordions have become widely spread all over the world, being used in folk music, pop, rock, cajun, zydeco, jazz and in both solo and orchestra performances of classical music. We, being great fans of fine acoustical instruments, introduce this new sound library devoted to the accordion in its various forms, providing you, dear fellow musicians, with a superb sounding, versatile addition for your musical work.
