Re: Midi harmonica dm48

Yes, it's an add-on controller that mounts on the DM48. If it proves popular I'll make some of these available.

Re: Slider Bass

Erik Lekholm has tried it on the DM48, sounds good. Though to me the point of a MIDI harmonica is NOT to sound like a harmonica: I have plenty of traditional ones for that.
