eChanter is an Open Source electronic bagpipe project, based on the Arduino platform, using capacitive touch sensors, with polyphonic wavetable synthesis PCM audio at 8KHz. See Files for the development version, eChanter v3.0.
I build the chanter today in a short afternoon and it works. I will have to wait for some components to try hifi mode, but even with the simple setup the sound was not bad. Instructions how to ad a pod to lower the volume might be nice to add. I hope I can expand it to make a cornemuse du Centre France version of it including a second thumb hole. If I get it working I will try to contribute my changes back to the project. Am I correct that it is now not possible to play sharp or flat notes?
