Firmware update 1.08 includes the following features:
• Stereo Pan
Each instrument now includes a Pan function to enhance use of the stereo output.
This is a powerful function that will widen your bagpipe sound and create great depth.
All elements of the Highland Bagpipe (Chanter, Bass Drone, Tenor Drone) can be individually positioned in the stereo mix. This will widen the stereo image, and accurately emulate the sound of the acoustic instrument and how it ‘fills the room’.
For example, to widen the Great Highland Bagpipe sound Pan;
Bass Drone 3 steps to the left (6L)
Tenor Drone 2 steps to the right (8R)
The Pan function can be also used to send individual sound elements to either stereo channel which is useful for studio recording and live performance. For example:
Pan the Chanter to the Right side (10R), and Bass & Tenor Drones to the left side (10L).
This separates both sounds in the mix whereby the Chanter can be routed to a Reverb, and the Drones to a Chorus, or individually tracked when recording.
The Metronome comprises 2 percussive sounds, and multipe beat patterns. Now when the chanter is Shutdown and the Metronome is activated, when powering on the Chanter the metronome will sound with the previous session settings.
Pan has also been added to the Metronome.
• Battery Icon
The battery icon will intermittently flash when the charge is at 30%.
When fully charged, the icon will remain solid.
• Usr Instrument
This firmware update also prepares your Digital Chanter to accept additional instrument sound banks.
