Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

Re: The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

Anyone get one yet? Impressions or issues, or tips for assembly and playing? I have one on order, but I was just wondering if any regular players had given it a run yet. Brendan, Boris, and Mitch make it sound great! But then, they could play blades of grass and sound good. I have a minichromatic/S...

Re: Asiabend or solo-tuned unibender?

We got a big number of orders for the SwitchHarp/MiniChrom and it overwhelmed our capacity to make them quickly. We stopped orders for a short time to improve production systems. The UniBender will be out in about two weeks when we are confident we can make and ship all the TwinDiatonics quickly. T...

Re: How would you retune an Asia Bend?

The x-reeds simply need to be bent out a bit for tuning, so they have a normal gap and sound when blown. When you have them at the pitch you want return them to zero gap. Only the blow x-reeds should be sharp, the draws tuned as you normally would. Does the Unibender also require tuning of the x-re...

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

So far i found 3 apps in Appstore that have variable pitch settings to use with MiniPitch Bender. These are Galileo(organ), Poison-202 and Music Studio 2. And of course Thor we mentioned earlier.

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

Thanks Brendan !
I really like the possibility/simplicity to use it with my iPad and use it at all places. Just plug it in and play. And there is also a growing numbers of apps to choose from.

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

Brendan, you have Thor on your iPad. It must mean that you can switch the pitch range 3+ to use the mini pitchbender in this app?

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

Great, i was unsure if it could read midi signals from two units on one port. Maybe i can find any iPad app that have pitchbend option. So far i found one (Music Studio) but must wait until the mini pitchbender arrives to try it out.

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

I received my blues harp mouthpiece today. I did not have any problems with the original mouthpiece on DM48 but if you are a diatonic player like me it feels like coming home again. Thank you Brendan and David !
