The Ross Technologies MidiPipes are an affordable, high quality digital instrument, equally suitable for use as a
convenient practice chanter, or with an amplifier for live performance.
The notes are played in a very realistic manner, by covering electronic touch sensors, positioned to exactly match the finger spacing of a regular pipe chanter.
The sound is produced from actual Great Highland Bagpipe samples stored in a wav-table for an accurate and
realistic playing experience.
The MidiPipes incorporate fingering for natural notes and vibrato to enhance the range of notes and expression
Also available is a MIDI output which enables the pipes to control MIDI instruments such as keyboards, or music
software running on a Mac or PC.
The unit may be configured to play in the regular bagpipe key of “b-flat”, or one of seven different keys to match the
pitch of other instruments – all by simply playing the desired key on the finger holes (ie: all holes covered for the key of “G”).
The pipes may also be set to play an automatic harmony accompaniment (seconds) if desired.
The unit may be easily configured to turn on with or without drones, and will save the last volume setting used. They will also automatically shut down after a period of non-use to conserve battery power.
