Description

Introducing ePipesKeys, an realistic sounding set of Scottish Highland Bagpipes presented as an easy-to-play piano keyboard with the same range as the real instrument.

Completely new version 2.0 adds a reverb option for a huge, full sound! (iOS 5.0 or later required for reverb features).

Please see the note below about the use of reverb in headphones on iOS6 devices.

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 "Bagpipes" 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 a key is started, the chanter plays continuously just like a real Highland bagpipes chanter. This accurately emulates the behavior of the real chanter, the sound keeps going as long as there is pressure in the bag.

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 sounds.

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 Highland 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 ePipesKeys. 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.

Note about the use of headphones on iOS 6 devices:

Unfortunately, because of a bug Apple introduced in iOS 6 to the reverb system in iOS, the reverb is broken in headphones and results in the sound being panned far to the right.

Apple has been made aware of the issue and hopefully will fix the issue in a future iOS 6 update.

For now, please turn the reverb off when using headphones on iOS 6 devices to center the sound.

Exactly as expected

:
Good app for playing with Scottish highland sounds, no crashes or bugs. New keyboard layout is exactly as expected from Scottish notation. Playing with easy mode off is also quite fun, since you can play a nice minor third interval (not available on real pipes - fun to have a different scale to play with). Overall really fun app to help work out real melodies with a good highland pipe sound. Developer was very receptive and quick to improve this app, keep these apps coming Micheal.

4/5 stars

Great but needs a higher octave

:
Great app..but It would be even more great if there was a higher octave. Def.worth the money
