Bagpipe Music Player

Bagpipe Player is a music engraving and playing software program for the Great Highland Bagpipe. It will run under MS Windows 95/98/2000 and Windows NT . It will read and play BMW DOS and BMW Gold file formats. I have also provided a file conversion utility for converting other bagpipe software file formats (ABC, Electric Pipes, Piob Mhor, BMW DOS, BMW Gold). It has playing, printing and display capabilities that compare to the best commercially available bagpipe software programs.

Additional Comments

You must install timidity for playing files and set BagPipe.exe to "Windows 98" version. I can't say if it's fully OK, because I've a patched version for Winscop (a french application) See this post for more informations.

HowTo / Notes


2015-01-25 Admin note: The following was extracted from a user comment made in 2008 and may not be relevant to current Wine:

With win 98 as Windows version everything works fine.

For playing midis just install timidity++ and start timidity with "timidity -iA" - thats it.

At the Bagpipe Player, there is a dropdown menu (right beside the Zoom option) choose Timidity there.
