This technology being developed could make these sounds more accessible to future recording artists and I'm having no trouble with that. Very cool.

        That got me in the mood for some of that sting movie music by scott joplin.
        Here's maple leaf rag.
        IMO the commodordion needs to stick to the Piano, but that video was rather entertaining!
