Re: Suggestions for newer generation Technopipes

@Bob: I've never even heard of an EWI. What in the haggis is that?
What if you play the TP through Midi with a piano sound? When I do, at least, the crossing noises are even more apparent. Like each...

Re: Suggestions for newer generation Technopipes

More Samples!
The only thing that isn't quite right is the fact that the High B is still available in the regular scale. I suggested for him to only use the high B in the chromatic scale, so I'm so...

Re: Suggestions for newer generation Technopipes

Adendum: Yes, DapperDan, they do have a Galician Technopipes released. It too might need tuning work for its next release however.

Re: Suggestions for newer generation Technopipes

@Dapperdan, I agree with you.
First, what release do you have? The one with the chromatic scale or not? Does yours always go to factory default when you turn it on? The one without the extra scale...

Re: UPiper on the IPhone and Technopipes

I've been using UPiper a long time, but just had to give up and suggest new features to Fagerstrom who will release a new Technopipe with properly tuned chanter notes, upgraded drone tones, etc....

Re: Fagerstrom Technopipes

I wouldn't say every single note on the chanter is perfectly tuned to the drones. Particularly, the B and F are tuned like a piano.
Nevertheless: Perhaps if you're interested you can take a look at...

Re: Fagerstrom technochanter variable pitch

Totally right. The B and F are completely out of tune. However, I'm working with Fagerstrom to come out with a new release so that the notes on the chanters are properly tuned. Surprised he did not...

Re: DegerPipes first generation issue

Here's an update. So, what happened was, Dad is really not all that good with using splicing tabs. He says it would take 5 hands to connect them well, and he obviously only has two. So, he's going to...

Zampogna and reeds

Ciao y'all,
So, I guess very few of you are zampogna players here, but I thought I could ask this question.
On a 1974 recording of a zampogna... The pipes were in the key of A-flat, although the...

Re: What happened to Omega Drone reeds

So ever since Christmas of 2018 I had been reading the excited feedback about Crozier Omega drone reeds enough that I just couldn't resist trying to purchase a set. I'm a huge fan of...

Re: DegerPipes first generation issue

Re: New Fagerstrom Techopipes - "Smallpipe" Sound Option

In 2009 I believe, the newer generation of the Technopipe has a FAR better smallpipe sound than the horridly whimpy one you are talking about. It's heard here, sounds much better than even the first...
