Anyone know where I could find an accordion sound for Logic Pro (or GB)? I thought I had one, but guess not- and I really want that sound to finish off a tune. Thanks for your assistance or suggestions!

Check out Ben Boldt's samples. The 24-pack has 4 accordions.

Also, look in the "Shared GarageBand Setting On My Mac" (in the track settings selection) in Logic. I see Polka & Tango accordion, though I don't remember if they came with either or if I acquired them myself.

The tango accordion, as it turns out, can be found with the pianos in both Garageband and Logic without recourse to any JamPack.

Thanks! The Ben Boldt samples had something I think will work just fine. Needed that old "squeeze-box" sound like John Mellencamp used on a few tunes.

I found the musicdrawer one as well a month or so ago and have played around with it - it does have a pretty good sound, and was dead easy to install.
