FDP Forum / Rock-it 88's - Keyboard Forum / Bagpipe Sounds

Is there anything out there that can get a decent bagpipe sound? The Roland Fantom was close but not quite what I had in mind (and way over budget). Mostly we're looking for a reedy drone that's slightly out of tune, just like the real thing!

Yeah, but that would be too easy. ;-)

the Roland Fantom works well if you layer it with other reedy instruments like a bari sax on the drone keys and an oboe on the higher range.

My Fantom X6 sounds just like the real thing (I add a little reverb and echo in the onboard mixer)

but it is expensive so I would suggest any keyboard that allows you to layer and mix patches. eBay and pawn shops can be your best friend
