Siwa & Figli Super Quattro Artist MIDI Amplified Accordion

The Super Quattro Artist is the top of the line and best-selling Siwa & Figli concert accordion. The Super Quattro Artist was inspired by some legendary accordions like the 1960's Scandalli Super VI and the 1980's Guerrini President as well as 60 years of combined experience of Ivan Stanojlovic at Siwa & Figli and Guenadiy Lazarov at Accordion Gallery. Selecting a Siwa accordion you partner with a team of musicians, craftsmen, and engineers with  knowledge of the time-tested accordion building practices and access to state of the art technology, a team enriched with experience of restoring more than 1000 accordions and able to combine the best features from all of them, a team with a vast network of accordionists constantly providing their feedback. You become part of a Community.

Many accordionists have joined our Siwa & Figli Community as customers, featured artists, friends. We invite you to try the Super Quattro and experience its tonal quality and character. It will remind you of the finesse and richness of the 1960's Super VI treble sound, enhanced with the 1980's Guerrini President deep and strong bass sound. Yet, the Super Quattro has a character of its own. It has been ergonomically optimized and is about 1.5 lb lighter than the Guerrini with the center of gravity brought closer to the performer's body. The mechanical and acoustic balance is impressive. The overall efficiency is extraordinary. You can enjoy a vast dynamic range and play from very soft to very loud and the instrument will respond instantly to your creative artistic demands. You have to experience the accordion and be aware of how little effort it needs to reward you with its harmonic richness and explosive response.

Here is a summary of the features.
Hey-di MIDI Manual
Sound Library
Siwa & Figli's Hey-di MIDI system was developed in collaboration with Logic Systems. The grill controller has extremely slim design and combines elegant appearance with powerful features. The internal sound card offers more than 800 accordion and orchestral  sounds and effects allowing the flexibility to perform without external MIDI module. Right from the grill you can adjust volume, bellows dynamics, change octave for particular section or transpose the entire instrument, select different instrument sounds in real time etc. The 2 independent treble sections allow for simultaneous selection of accordion and orchestral sounds. The internal memory consists of a ROM part with factory programmed orchestral sounds (5 for bass section, 5 for chords section, and 2x11 for the 2 treble sections) and Flash component where you can store your favorite presets (6 for bass, 6 for chords, and 2x12 for the 2 treble sections). In addition, there are 12 user banks (registrations) to store your favorite system parameters. Either use the factory programs or create your own and recall them in real time. In summary, you can store and instantly recall from the grill panel 66 treble sounds, 11 bass sounds, and 11 chord sounds as selected from the 800+ available in the built-in sound library. One can access the internal sound card while controlling an optional external MIDI arranger. The system can be used with headphones for private practice.

The accordion can be played without additional MIDI modules using the hundreds of built-in sounds and effects. However, if the performer desires to use external MIDI module it is possible to use it in addition to the internal sound card. Any MIDI module will work with this state-of-the-art system. The following (optional) MIDI modules/arranges are available for purchase with this accordion:
