Hi to all out there,

after giving my EX7 a rest over several years (because of our small children), I restarted playing with it recently. Currently I am working on a cover version of the Braveheart theme and I am looking now desperately for a bagpipe voice.
I really hope that somebody of you guys can help me out or point me in the right direction. Maybe there is already a bagpipe in one of the downloads in the meber area, but I don't know. Maybe someone of you does.
Thanks in advance for your efforts.

Regards from Germany,
Juergen

Hi,

might not be of some help right now, except you know somebody with a Roland JV- or XV- Series Synth with the "Orchestral II" sampleROMboard installed, which you could sample..

The only bagpipe sample which didn't annoy the crap out of me when I needed it for a medieval dance in a theatre piece came out of the above mentioned board. We are talking far before softwaresampler times here..

If nobody else comes up with sounds/samples in EXformat taking a look here might help, if you need a VSTplugIn or you use the AKaiformat CDrom which is available there, too. I bought that one around 1998 and still use some of the sounds once in awhile..

Hope I could help,
cu Malte

Hi,

unfortunately I don't know anybody with a Roland JV- or XV- Series Synth. If I don't get any other suggestions I probably have to go for the Akai Sample Disk. But until then I will wait a little bit longer to see if someone comes up with an EX7 voice. Well, after doing some thinking ... if somebody has a good sample and is willing to share it then just let me know.

Regards
Jürgen

Hello Jürgen,

I also own both a Fantom-X as well as a XV3080 and do recognize that they both have bagpipes "onboard". Let me check this evening (after my own little "talibans" have gone to sleep). I think i can help you out. Hang in there :-)

Hi Daniel,

thank you very much, I really appreciate your help. I look forward to hear from you (of course after talking good care of your little "talibans" ).

Regards,
Jürgen

Hello Jürgen,

I am terribly sorry being late

Anyway, here is a sound called FS LochScape from my Fantom-X6, recorded as is in stereo and converted into mp3.

bagbipe_demo

edit. Will record the same piece using the xv3080. Hang in there :-)

Hi Daniel,

wow, this sounds really great. It's hard to imagine that the XV3080 will be able to top this, but I will wait for your next XV sound example.
Again, I really appreciate all your efforts in helping me out in this case.

Regards,
Jürgen

Np :-)

Here is the 3080 version. It only had (what i could find, i could be wrong) a GM version of a bagpipe:

xv3080 GM

Not even close tbh

Just for the fun of it, this is the fantom version again with modulation delay on, sligthly more reverb, a rather fast rate and short delay time:

fantom lochscape mfx

Hi Daniel,

I think the Fantom bagpipe is way above the (GM?) bagpipe of the XV. Compared to the Fantom voice this sounds rather poor.
The 2nd Fantom example is also great. With the effects applied it sounds a little bit like the bagpipe being played in a large concert hall compared to the first one. Is it possible to send me a sample of the first example (maybe C3 if possible) or if you like of both of the Fantom examples?

Regards,
Jürgen

Hi Jürgen,

I'll make sure to sample the fantom. Is C3 sufficient? It is no problem for me to sample the drone two samples per octave and the pipe every other key if you like? I don't know how the original Fantom sound is sampled (not easy to hear). Also, i have the Fantom connected to my digital mixer via sp/dif and use 48khz/24 bits. Is that ok or would you like 44.1/16?

I believe i can do it this evening.

kind regards

Daniel

edit. do you want them dry or as they sound on the clip, above?

Hi,

Finally managed to get some time to do it :-)

It is a 18Mb wav (24bit/48khz) so you might need to adjust it to 16/44.1.

Happy bagpiping

several tones + drone of babpipe

Hi Daniel,

thank you very much for all your patience and efforts. As soon as my little childs give me a break for some time I will sit down and feed the samples into the EX. I will let you know how everything went (but this can take also some time).

Regards,
Jürgen
