Listen to Universal Piper on the website or SoundCloud :

A complete effect rig:
- Effects dedicated to bagpipe : a customizable second voice, a humanizer (simulation of bag pressure change), a valve noise,
- Classic effects including equalizer, reverberation and spreader (stereo image enhancement),
- Effects from the guitar world : delay, flanger and vibrato.
Each configuration can be saved and called back any time.

To steer those sound capabilities, Universal Piper integrates an advanced MIDI controller management for live performance:
- For electronic chanter, to make it short, select your chanter and fingering in the list and Universal Piper does the rest. Still, you can go further managing several type of chanters, modify notes using custom or predefined mode (mixolydian, dorian,…).
- A MIDI input is also dedicated to MIDI keyboard and other instrument (EWI, sax,…).
All effects and sound parameters can be managed through MIDI (Program Change, Control Change, Note ON/OFF, Pitchbend are supported).

Universal Piper - Bagpipe Lab also integrates a MIDI and BWW file reader including tempo and grace notes (only BWW) adjustment.

Universal Piper - Bagpipe Lab is a Inter App Audio Generator you can integrate in your favourite DAW.

Finally, Universal Piper registered users on PC and MAC can share their sounds and presets with their iPad application.
