Locked In (Tuning)

Usually, "locked in" refers to matching of tuning. Scientifically speaking, "locked in" would mean two or more elements of a bagpipe are sounding the exact same frequency. For example, all three drones can be locked in with each other, and locked in with the chanter as well! Or, two or more pipers could be tuned so well together that they are considered "locked in."
