Al Roberts Chromatic

Through the 1960s and '70s, Al Roberts (1937-1997) and his band members were popular entertainers in Milwaukee's polka music scene. Al played an Italo-American chromatic accordion and the concertina. His chromatic can be heard on his first recording, High-Flying Polkas.

A chromatic accordion has roughly the same notes and range as a piano accordion, but the right side uses buttons instead of keys.

Four reed combinations are offered on the right side: master, bassoon, three clarinets, and one clarinet. Master basses, low basses, and chords are sampled on the left side.

● Key switches toggle among reed selections
● Adjustable attack & release envelopes
● Adjustable reverb
● Adjustable key and button noise volume
● Optional CC1-controlled volume
