I think the vPipes will be a great tool for pipers who play in a lot of different keys in particular when accompanying songs. The ability, when playing in a plugged in gig, to change-to any key, is an attractive one.
vPipes-Uilleann is a unique electronic uilleann bagpipes emulator that uses revolutionary technology resulting in a real-life experience in terms of sound quality, fingering and ornamentations. It thus affords the possibility of practising accurately in a variety of situations that would prove impractical or impossible with a real set of pipes. The vPipes now includes the possibility of loading a whole array of MIDI sound-bank samples.
