Pianoteq – Virtual Instrument by Modartt

Pianoteq – Virtual Instrument

From Jason Zac – “Pianoteq is my go-to Piano for my stage performances and studio recordings and inspires you to create music like none other instrument on the planet. Very light on the computer, works on pretty much every operating system and ideal for any pianist or music producer at any level”

Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac). It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and will even run on some ARM-based boards such as the Raspberry Pi. It can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in in VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.

What makes Pianoteq superior to other virtual instruments is that the instruments are physically modelled and thus can simulate the playability and complex behaviour of real acoustic instruments. Because there are no samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that required by other virtual instruments, making Pianoteq perfect for any modern laptop.

Pianoteq 7 Stage is our entry product and a good choice for budget-minded musicians who do not need to modify the sound in great detail.

You can upgrade to the Standard or PRO version at any time. Pianoteq Stage comes with two instrument packs of your choice.

Pianoteq 7 Standard offers unique powerful tools to enhance and modify the sound, such as changing the unison width, hammer hardness and string length. You can place up to 5 virtual microphones around the instrument and load external reverb impulse files. You can morph and layer instruments together. You can upgrade to the PRO version at any time. Pianoteq Standard comes with three instrument packs of your choice.

Pianoteq 7 PRO is the most advanced version, adapted for the creative composer and demanding studio engineer. In addition to the Standard version, it gives you all the tools needed to work in a truly professional environment, letting you adjust 30 parameters for each note on the keyboard and work with up to 192 Khz audio.
