Notes on the instruments:

The Uilleann pipes sampled were made in the late 1990s by the late, legendary craftsman Dave Williams. They are based on a Crowley design. The chanter was made in 2006 by Benedict Koehler with its form derived from a Rowsome chanter.

Both the Border Pipes and Small Pipes used were developed by Fred Morrison and Stuart McCallum and were manufactured by McCallum Bagpipes. They appeal to pipers of all kinds because of their acoustic compatibility with other instruments. Both default in the key of A (440) with an extra E drone creating a harmonious chord.

The Great Highland Pipes sampled were McCallum drones with a McC2 chanter designed by top competing piper Willie McCallum, again manufactured by leading pipe maker McCallum's Bagpipes.

Notes on the sample quality:

The audio samples used in Studio Piper were recorded with Neumann U87 and Rode NTV microphones and mastered with iZotope Ozone to ensure outstanding sonic quality. Studio Piper was developed with former Thomas Oberheim engineer, William Evans, and the Centre for Music Technology at Glasgow University.
