The Bagpipe Player is app for IOS uses very popular format BWW, BMW files for writing music of the bagpipe . Basic functions: show bww file as musical notes sheet, for playing and printing. The app useful for learning a new tunes and writing a new tune. Bagpipe Player play tunes like Great Highland Bagpipe with drones and embellishments. Authentic sound sampled from real GHB and Practice chanter. Ability to choose: - sound of the practice chanter or bagpipe ; - sound of the drones; - volume sound of drones and chanter; - duration of grace notes; - tempo change; - tone of sound on +- 5 halftone; - height of the music staff; - background for the sheet of notes; There is an ability: - create PDF, print it, send it email ; - create folders in main folder to store certain tunes; - to delay begin of playback for training; - highlight a section of the tune and repeat it; - turn on sound of the metronome; - use demo tuner; - create midi file of the tune and to send it to the email; - create own bww file in trial graphical editor (function "Save" can to unlock for extra cost by built-in purchase). The Bagpipe Player contains some .bww files for demonstration purpose. This is tunes from Tutor 1 and Tutor 3 The College of Piping and also my favorite tunes. Remember tap on button (i) you get info about control in the app. Your files can to download to iPad from a PC using iTunes file sharing or download from DropBox, attachment email, Google Drive and etc. Posibility to sync files between devices using iCloud. Can to upload files from the app to the DropBox folder. Count of files is not limited. The preferred source to produce files .bww is a lot of network resources. I think, app Bagpipe Player will be useful for beginners and professional bagpipers for purposes learning new tunes and writing new tunes. The Bagpipe Player created for everybody who want, learn, plays and to loves sound of the bagpipe.




  • Excellent - fun to practice with

    By Celtic Piper
    I was looking for an iOS app for practice and learning and this is it. Lot’s of features for playback and editing. Simple integration with Dropbox for adding and storing files. Easy to use with adjustable tempo etc. Now I need to find a .bww exchange site. Kudos and thanks to the developer - good job!
  • Must have app for bagpipers

    By hghubert
    This is a must have app for anyone who is learning to play the bagpipes. Being able to have the music with me wherever I am allows me to practice whenever I want. Having the music play while I am practicing helps me learn the notes and the timings as they should be played. Features keep being added on a regular basis and the developer is very responsive to questions. I fully recommend this app.
  • This is the app I was looking for

    By Pocket 'O Joy
    It is so stupid simple, but keeps those BWW files all organized... AND it has a lot of more complicated feature, such as metronome and adjusting of many aspects of playback. It comes with a good set of songs and easily integrates with Drop Box to add your own collection(=
  • Waste of money

    By Bensenville Piper
    Only 90 tunes on the App. I wish I knew that ahead of time. No Balmoral. Complete waste of money. wish I knew how to get a refund.
  • Best bagpipe app

    By Jasonoll
    The developer has excellent customer service. He answered my questions quickly. This is by far the BEST bagpipe music player/editor out there. Very, very easy to use. Makes learning and editing songs a breeze. I highly recommend this app to bagpipe players.
  • Sad

    By Dub bah
    Doesn't work with iPhone. Screen is jumbled at the top. Can't add tunes to Dropbox or see tunes in folder other than the standard tunes with the app. Tuner doesn't work at all. Feel totally ripped off. Total junk
  • So far so good

    By Firefighter927
    So far this is a good app. Had some problems in the beginning but after an email to support I was able to fix them. Very quick response from support. I give them an A+.
  • Well done

    By Grumpygeorge
    The app is very useful, and I am impressed with the playback quality. Better playback quality than the original bagpipe player and an iOS first. Although there a few rough edges, the potential is great. I look forward to a "create file" function. In the meantime, writing on PC version by Doug Wickstrom and transferring by drop box will have to do. This app gives PMs the ability to distribute arrangements to band members via dropbox, and members have the ability to playback and practice anywhere they can take their iPhone or iPad. The "edit" function makes corrections and alterations easy (you must already know the markup language for bagpipe player, no different from the original, as it should be). For the record, creating an iOS app is a huge investment of time and energy. The price is very reasonable. The limited audience for whom the app was created reinforces the reasonable price. Less than half the cost of a cheap chanter reed. Once the rough edges are smoothed out, this will be THE bagpiper's app, just as the PC version has been for years.
  • Great App

    By BradRuns
    I love this app. I would give it 5 stars, but I can't seem to print the music.

    Don't waste the money. Very limited song selection and as far as I have found no way to add to it.
