Description

Introducing BorderPipesKeys, an realistic sounding set of Scottish Border Pipes presented as an easy-to-play piano keyboard with the same range as the real instrument.

Be sure to check out the cool demo videos on my website!

Compared to the big Scottish Highland pipes, the Border Pipes have a mellower sound and are pitched a half-step lower, in the key of A.

The drone and chanter sounds are provided by ePipes in Glasgow, Scotland, and are based on an extremely high quality per-note studio recording of one of the finest sets available.

These are the exact same audio samples used in my popular "Border Pipes" app for the iPad. With this app you can carry those same sounds in your pocket.

Operating Instructions:

Touch any key to start the chanter playing. Once started, the chanter plays continuously just like a real Scottish Border Pipes chanter.

Play a melody on the chanter by touching the keys.

Touch the drone puck image to switch the drones on and off. Stopping the drones also stops the chanter sound.

The balance between the drones and chanter volume may be adjusted on the settings page.

The "Easy Mode" switch on the settings page lets you play the main Border Pipes chanter notes using just the white keys and is turned on by default.

Playing Tip: To make your playing sound more authentic and for repeated notes, quickly slide from an adjacent black key to the note you are playing to simulate a piping "cut" ornament.

You may also play along with the music on your iPhone/iPod Touch by starting a music track playing using the iPod app on your device, then launching SmallPipesKeys. Double click the home button to bring up the iPod music controls while the app is running.

For more fun and to experience the full quality of the samples used for the app, try playing the app through an external amplified speaker connected to the headphone jack on your device.

fun but thats about it

:
While the chanter and drone sound is good, I don't see this as being a helpful practice venue, as there is no easy way to practice embellishments. As far as the previous reviewers comment, a Scottish pipe only has 9 notes, so the length of the keyboard is appropriate.
