Real bagpipe sounds for BMW, NO special hardware required
 
Hey everyone, if you are a user of Bagpipe Music Writer Gold for Windows, please check out some work I've done with regards to getting that software to play REAL bagpipe sounds, versus kinda-crappy sound that it usually does.

Unlike how it was designed years ago, I've documented a way to do it WITHOUT a special sound card.

Documentation and links here:

Enjoy, --Kent

Very Kool! :thumb:


Now I need to set low A to 480 instead of 466 and adjust all the rest of the notes accordingly.


Thanks very much! Good work!

Thanks for this - would be perfect if there was a way to make that setting persistent. I know you can copy in lines to other files in a text editor, could a batch file do this for every tune I have?

A wee search yielded this - https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...pe/g2TwLeJ5IJw

Has anyone any updates after 18 years? If I was doing anything illegal or immoral I would have reservations about putting my physical address online (as the shareware author has done) on his site that still hosts this controversial software. Essentially it sounds like promises weren't kept to him.

Great Job on that Kent! And easy instructions! I set it up as well on my laptop and wife's tablet and love the smallpipe sound!
