I am curious about the Master Millenium Reedless Accordion that came
out several years ago. Please note: this is NOT the Petosa
The reason I'm curious about it is that it had features that seemed to preceed anything that Roland packed into a Reedless accordion. The
power box that came with the Master Millenium, for example, had a MIDI
IN port, which was unusual for reedless accordions. It also had two
The treble side of the accordion was also interesting. There were two
treble settings, each with its own MIDI channel. Treble One consisted
of several accordion sounds. Having selected one of them, the player
could then press one of several switches (they look just like the
treble switches on an acoustic accordion) to select the reed
combinations within that sound. This also looks like a forerunner to
Treble Two was for orchestral sounds, although there were probably
less than the number of orchestral sounds that Master offers today.
And then, of course, there were MIDI channels for bass and for chords, similar to what most reedless instruments had.
I wonder how popular this reedless was in its day and how many of them
