The reed instruments that developed in the 19th century, such as the accordion and the various reed organs, were more accessible to non-players. By the 20th century, companies like Magnus had developed organs that had built-in buttons that would play full chords, greatly simplifying the playing process, as well as electric fans that provided the airflow to produce the sounds. Many vintage Magnus electric chord organs are still around today, and they can be played in a few steps.
