Of course that's one reason they were so effective as martial instruments [...] They could be heard above the battlefield noises.

They were doing a demonstration of various heavy weapons fielded by various scots regiments and even when the gatling gun was on steady fire you could hear a pipe band performing.Those guys on the gatling gun must have been bad shots.
