Overview

St. Patrick's Irish Bundle by Xtant Audio and Libre Wave

Dicky Deegan's Uilleann Pipes

The uilleann pipes is the national bagpipe of Ireland. It is a complex instrument made up of several pipes, a pipe bag to hold the air, and a set of bellows used to inflate the bag. This library features two full sets of uilleann pipes each with chanter, drones, and regulators - including a rare double-bass regulator.

Performance
The aim is to take the components of this complicated instrument and map them to the keyboard in a way that is easy for you to play and perform.

Drones
Just like on the real instrument the drones of Dicky Deegan's Uilleann Pipes sample library can be turned on or off using a single key switch for each pipe. These key switches are velocity sensitive which is great when working in a DAW as it prevents the switches being triggered incorrectly when you play back your sequence.

Regulators
The regulators are polyphonic for playing chords. For notes that are available on more than one regulator pipe you have the option to select which pipe's samples are triggered, giving your performance an extra hit of realism.

Chanter
The chanter is monophonic. Playing in an overlapped style will trigger legato transitions and to compliment this further we've included a retrigger function which is ideal for trills. Using the slide controls you can perform formant correct slides of varying lengths and by adjusting the velocity of notes you can replicate the sound of performing the chanter on or off the knee.

Extras
To help you create detailed mock-ups we've included an extra Kontakt instrument featuring a selection of bellows and bag noise samples. These are recordings of Dicky filling the pipe bag with air before and during his performance. These samples are of various lengths and intensities so that you can fit them into your sequences.
One of the advantages of sample libraries is being able to do things that are impossible on the real instrument.

With Dicky Deegan's Uilleann Pipes not only do you have control over the volume of the three microphone positions, you can also set the balance between the drones, regulators, and chanter. This is incredibly useful for adapting the instruments to different contexts or incorporating them into ensembles.


 

Paddy's Irish Percussion

The samples were recorded with four closely positioned microphones. The custom Kontakt interface provides a microphone mixer with control over each channel’s volume and panning, and you also have the option to completely unload samples you’re not using.

The instruments include a built in step sequencer for creating your own playable looped rhythms. You can have up to five tempo synced rhythms sequenced at one time which can be quickly selected and played back using handy key switches.

Each sequence can have between two and sixteen steps. The on-screen controls let you easily adjust the musical length and duration of each step, for each sequence.

Both the bodhrán and cajón respond to a selection of continuous controllers, all detailed in the user guide. The pitch bend wheel is especially useful when crafting a realistic bodhrán performance; it is the perfect tool for replicating the sonic change created by the musician’s hand sliding up and down inside the drum head.


 

O'Malley's Irish Whistle

Each whistle includes a “Live” mode. This is designed for real-time performance, it adapts to your playing style and different articulations can be played naturally on the keyboard without the need for manual switching.

The whistles in this collection were recorded in the same space as our other instruments – Dicky Deegan’s Uilleann Pipes, Michaela’s Harp, and Paddy’s Irish Percussion – which helps all four to blend well when used together.


 

Michaela's Harp

Michaela’s Harp is a beautifully sampled Celtic harp virtual instrument. It features three microphone positions, multiple velocity layers, damped and stopped samples, and playable triplets.

We recorded a modern Celtic harp with a warm tone and a built in pick-up. This allowed us to create a direct input recording in addition to two stereo microphone positions. Michaela’s Harp was built with HISE and runs as an independent VSTi/AU plugin without the need of an extra player application. The library was recorded in a studio rather than a large hall so the samples aren’t particularly wet which will help you to blend and layer them with your other instruments.

The instrument includes normal plucked samples recorded at four dynamic levels. This is the default articulation and has that quintessential warm resonant sound that is unique to the Celtic harp. For occasions when it’s desirable to have a little less resonance We also recorded a separate set of damped string samples.

The library includes a dedicated preset browser from which you can select different factory configurations or create your own personal presets.
