Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

You're rignt Brendan - its the flat 5 (relative to 1 blow) that's only available as either a deep draw bend on hole 2 slide in, or a "in-between" draw bend on hole 2 slide out.

Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

Ok, a week or two later and I'm no longer complaining about "lip friction"! It just took me a little longer than anticipated to adjust but now I'm fine with the movable mouthpiece. In fact I've even found a comfortable one handed grip for this beast that still allows me full slide motion. Any other ...

Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

My first Switch Harp demo - "Blues in Hoss Flat" played on two Melody Maker harps - one in Ab, the other in A.

Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

Excited to have my Melody Maker Switch Harp in hand for the first time! The sound is excellent. The mechanism will take some getting used to. Specifically, the slider movement is not like a chromatic because instead of having the slider move while everything else stays static, on the Switch Harp the...

Re: Midi harmonica dm48

Today I received my "MIDIPLUS MiniEngine USB" from Amazon. It's a little larger than a cigarette pack and runs on a USB rechargeable battery. It is completely "Plug & Play" with the DM-48 with no perceivable latency. It does not require a computer. You just plug into the headphone jack with year ear...

Re: Midi harmonica dm48

Now that some of us have had our DM-48's for a few weeks, I'd be interested in hearing your settings - what have you settled on for "Sensitivity" "Trigger" "Bend Sensivity", etc. and all those other settings? Or are you just using the defaults?

Re: Midi harmonica dm48

By the way, after playing the DM-48 for a week, I'm already wishing it had one more button (in the back of the harp perhaps) that is simply a register key or octave key. The button on the top is great but it can only have one function at a time. With some of the more limited range tuning I use, it w...

Re: Midi harmonica dm48

Alright guys here is my very first video using the DM-48! As an added bonus I'm also playing StreetLegal's "Spiral 5ths" tuning! This is recorded on a Windows 10 PC that is simultaneously running REASON with the Electro Acoustic Voices for wind synth. The particular voice I'm using is called "Thin L...

Re: Midi harmonica dm48

Making real progress in taming this beast. It really helps to set things up for "Multi-Channel" midi, the more the better. "Solo Assist" isn't even necessary if each hole has its own channel. Now I'm just trying to find the best "patches" for it. The "Choir" patch in Acoustic Electro Waves sounds ki...
