Review & play testing of the WARBL MIDI controller

Post by mattpiper »

The WARBL MIDI controller is amazing! Combined with Appcordians' Uilleann Pipe app, I now have a fully digital MIDI uilleann pipe that sounds incredibly realistic! ALL the audio in this video is straight from the app (no additional audio processing) and you can see me playing it all on the WARBL.

Link to video!

Now to get it hooked up to a real uilleann pipe wind cap and fashion a bag for it...

Thanks for letting me know the link was not working. I've almost sorted the extra buttons out for regs now. This thing is great and that AppCordians app is about as good of an uilleann sound that I think one can do through MIDI (I bought and paid for the WARBL and app, so my opinion has not been purchased, FWIW.)

The Warbl is a really great device. I'd like to try it in Uilleann pipe mode but don't like playing it on my phone. Any suggestions on a good Uilleann sound lilbrary?

Tell us something.: I play traditional Irish and Scottish music.
"The beginner should approach style warily, realizing that it is an expression of self, and should turn resolutely away from all devices that are popularly believed to indicate style — all mannerisms, tricks, adornments. The approach to style is by way of plainness, simplicity, orderliness, sincerity."
