Description

Uillitina is a concert pitch Uilleann pipes (Irish Bagpipes) chanter and drones in the form of an English Concertina. It is extremely easy to play, extremely responsive, and has a very authentic sound.

The Uilleann pipes are a complex bellows blown bagpipe that is commonly used for traditional Irish music. It is used quite often in movie soundtracks with Irish themes because of it's very unique sound.

You can play melodies using the chanter sound by pressing the buttons, and turn the drones on and off by touching the drone puck.

Touch the "?" icon to show all the button notes.

Since Uillitina is polyphonic, you can create virtual regulators for chords just by holding down more than one button at a time. This is particularly nice when playing slow airs.

When Charles Wheatsone designed the English concertina, he set it up to match sheet music, the right side is the notes between the lines and the left side is the notes on the lines.

Because English Concertinas play the same note both on a push or a pull of the bellows, it is a very easy instrument to play on the iPhone. You simply touch the buttons on the screen to play the notes. The spacing is exactly the same the real instrument.

To play, hold the iPhone between your thumb and little fingers of both hands, exactly like a real English Concertina, and press the buttons with your index and middle fingers. Scale patterns alternate between the fingers of the right and left hands. Notes are higher in pitch as you move from the outside to the middle of the screen.

The sounds are recorded from my personal concert pitch set of Uilleann pipes and are of extremely high quality. All samples are tuned for perfect just intonation consonance with the drones and each other.

Please visit my website for playing tips and techniques, demonstration videos, and additional information about the Uilleann pipes.
