Spitfire Audio Release LABS Uilleann Pipes – A FREE Download

Spitfire Audio Release LABS Uilleann Pipes, also known as an Irish bagpipe, available as a FREE download.

Uilleann Pipes was made in collaboration with award-winning composer, producer and performing artist, Hannah Peel, and as featured in Hannah’s score for the much celebrated National Theatre production of Dancing at Lughnasa. 

LABS Uilleann Pipes utilise multiple drones, regulators and chanters to produce a wide range of expressive timbres. Performed with traditional Celtic flourishes and ornamentations, this rarely sampled instrument provides an unconventional way to add texture and interest to contemporary music.

Features include:

  • Presets
    • Ornament
      • Long notes with an accented tonal ornament in the attack
    • Pipers Ascension
      • Long notes with performed “bend” into the note
    • Cellular
      • Long notes with unmeasured tonal flourishes throughout
    • Cranns
      • Long notes with abrupt & frequent tonal flourishes throughout
    • The Chanter
      • Tonal “longs” performed & infinitely looped
    • The Regulator
      • Tonal “longs” played on the regulators & infinitely looped
    • Tides
      • Constant altering of pipe lengths to subtly alter the pitch, bringing the instrument in and out of tune
    • Air
      • The non-tonal “breath” of air passing through the instrument
  • Controls
    • i1 – Expression
    • i2 – Dynamics & Filtering
    • O1 – Drone Type & Volume
    • O2 – Distance Control
