3QuarterSet is a set of three drones and two regulators (tenor and baritone) found on a 3/4 set of Uilleann Pipes (Irish Bagpipes) in the most common keys of D, C#, C, B, or Bb.

Be sure to check out the cool demo videos on my website!

You may tune the drones and regulators +/- 50 cents in one-cent increments using the "Cents" slider on the settings page. Quickly reset the tuning offset to zero by touching the displayed offset value.

3QuarterSet uses high-quality 44.1 KHz 16-bit audio samples from my personal set of Uilleann pipes built by Kirk Lynch, not synthesized tones, so it sounds extremely realistic.

Switch between single regulator and chord regulator mode by touching the regulator icon below the drone puck.

For chord mode, you may choose between the A/C or G/C chord for the top regulator on the settings page.

On the settings page, you may set the root key (D, C#, C, B, or Bb), overall tuning offset, and the volume of the regulators and the drones independently. All settings are saved when the app exits.

With the iPhone or iPod Touch mounted on the leg (or on top of an existing set of drones) using a foam block and velcro ties, it is possible to play 3QuarterSet exactly as one would the physical instrument. Turn the drones on and off by touching the drone puck icon and play the regulators with the fingers or wrist.

You may play along with the tunes on your iPhone or iPod Touch, just start the music before running 3QuarterSet. Using Apple's Settings app, you may configure your device to bring up the iPod music controls by double clicking the home button to change tracks within an album.

3QuarterSet can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to add the unique sound of the Uilleann pipe drones and regulators to their live or recorded music.

Please visit the app website for demonstration videos and photos of 3QuarterSet being played as a live instrument along with a practice set consisting of an Uilleann pipes chanter, bellows, and bag.

Also on the website, a demonstration video showing how to use the tuning feature to play along with historical recordings that may not be at exact concert pitch.
