...think of the benefits for a touring band player - it won't go out of tune in any climate it's easy to put through a PA you can have as much monitor as you like without feedback it's effectively a half set of pipes in every key you'd want. Sounds like more than a toy to me.
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.
