Any of you sample producers working on celtic instruments... think Brave Heart and Titanic (minus the awful vocal qualities of Celine Dion - should have used Kate Bush instead IMHO)?
I\'m talking whistles, bagpipes, celtic drums... that sort of thing...
I am interested in Great Highland Bagpipe (the ones you see in bands) samples for use in creating tunes via MIDI instructions. The bagpipe is actually several instruments: bass drone, 2 tenor drones, and chanter. To be useful, I need solo samples of each of these \"instruments\": samples of each drone of about 1 sec. duration and a sample of the chanter playing its scale (9 notes) with each note at a duration of about 1 sec. Is there anything like this on the Big Fish Celtic CD? Thanks.

Yes all the \"pipe\" samples are setup with the bass drone, tenor drone, and a combined bass/tenor drone on the lower part of the keyboard. The sustain pedal loops these but does not effect the chanter notes just like on real bagpipes. There are also chromatic versions of each and tuned versions also.
Are you putting Uillean pipes on there too... a slightly sweeter version of the traditional scottish bagpipe, although I have to say I am looking forward to getting this CD, shoving a kilt on and cranking the volume up
