Audio Samples

To me, the vPipes are to the uilleann pipes what the keyboard is to the piano/organ: an emulator.


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.
