Bagpipes Suite

Added 01 Jan 2011 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

A set of plugins, house styles, manuscript papers, and a document explaining various issues involved with notating music for the Great Highland Bagpipes.

Includes the plugins Add Pipe Ornaments and Add Pipe Ornaments 2, and Play Pipe Ornaments, among others.

The tools were developed with the help of pipers Janette Montague and Jim McGillivray, to both of whom this suite is dedicated.

Updated January 17, 2011. Updated PDF doc to include more descriptions for how to use the plugins, and fixed a bug in Repair Bagpipe Notation that caused only the first staff in the score to be processed.

Updated 25 April 2012. Fixed bug in Play Pipe Ornaments plugin that gave bad results if there were multiple ornaments in a bar and later ones started before the beat.

Updated 14 June 2012 to fix multiple keystroke bug in Sib 7 on Mac.

Updated 22 Feb 2013. Restored missing House Style and Manuscript Paper files to the zip file.
