Congratulations! And great sound. This is the first time I have heard a recording from an fr-4x that has a pleasing L-reed sound (to my ears at least). Did you do something special to achieve that sound? In order to buy a Roland I need to convince my wife it can sound like a good real accordion (with cassotto) and for that I first need to convince myself...
I have gone over a number of your videos and some really sound "digital" whereas others sound quite convincingly like accordion, for instance Tea for Two has a really nice musette sound whereas Säkkijärven Polka sounds horribly like played on a digital accordion, which I don't like at all. I wonder whether you can identify what makes some songs sound like accordions and others not.

That's a really interesting question - can't wait to have Piotr's thoughts.
It seems his one aim is to make great music and he is not going to be limited by any preconceptions.
Refreshing!

the sound in this recording is great, and certainly would meet my everyday standards, if i were to go professionally gigging, this would be my goto instrument. there are so many advantages then (if it can take a beating)

It seems to me there is enough "expression" to have fun at playing it, I would rather not have it feel like a synthesizer.

problem is it doesn't fit in my current collection, I'm leaning more towards midi-ing up my Bugari at some point

Debra, I think I can recognize which setup is closest to real accordion. Plenty of sets are useless, but some are realy nice. I like bassons - some from Dallape and some dedicated for jazz.  Accordion sounds from left side isnt so good for me. Roland gives you some other possibilities with another sounds like bass guitar or piano chords. It will be worth for live performance.
Dunlustin - you are right  Shy I returned to the accordion after 25 years and play what I like just for fun. This is my passion.
Roland is very expression, but need some appropriated settings.

The left side isn't too bad, but it's hard to really reproduce the accordion's sound there because that is often not very  good, and it's harder to reproduce a sound that is not good to begin with than a good one.
I would be happy with just one good set for the treble side, that sounds like a real accordion, in both L, LM, M,  MH, LMH, LH and MM registers... My wife and I really like the sound of Bugari cassotto accordions, and I was hoping that the Bugari Evo would be able to reproduce that sound, but alas it does not, and a representative from Bugari told me that they are not even going to try to reproduce that sound because the Evo is targeted to a different market.
Anyway, thanks for your recordings that show a nice accordion sound is possible on the Roland (at least on the FR4x).
