Good question! In my opinion the word 'regulator' refers to the regulation of tempo - in that the keys are tapped with the wrist in accordance with the tempo of the tune being played. I agree that it is a strange choice of word, which leads me back to my other theory - that the Irish pipes may have been developed by instrument makers who came over from France and that the word 'regulator' may be a derivation or translation of some French musical term.
