    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. By omitting usage of samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that offered by other virtual instruments, perfect for use on any modern laptop.

    Version 7 of Pianoteq brings numerous refinements in its engine and physical model, as well as newly developed Morphing and Layering features.
    What's new in version 7
    Morphing
    The instruments XyloHarp, VibraDrum or GlockenTines certainly do not exist. These are however three of the many instruments you can create with the acoustic Morphing introduced in Pianoteq 7 (Standard/PRO). This innovative technology handles the morphing at the physical modelling level, providing stunning acoustic authenticity to instruments that never existed.

    Layering
    On popular demand, Modartt adds a new layering feature in Pianoteq 7 (Standard/PRO) allowing to mix several instruments, e.g. playing Bass Marimba in the low range, Xylophone in the upper range and mixing both together in the middle range. The difference between Morphing and Layering is that in the latter the two sounds are mixed together, whereas in Morphing the instrument Physics itself is being morphed.

    Refined physical model
    Modartt introduces a new refinement in its physical model: the double polarization. It consists in modelling string vibrations that can take any direction, e.g. parallel or perpendicular to the soundboard. The new physical model allows more complex tones to be produced, and as observed by a pianist, the sound becomes "three-dimensional". It also allows longer sustain, particularly in the bass range, with notes lasting up to a couple of minutes, just like on a real acoustic piano. All pianos in Pianoteq 7 are constructed and revoiced using this new physical model.

    New grand piano modelled after a New York Steinway Model D
    In collaboration with Steinway & Sons, Modartt has recorded a beautiful new Model D Concert Grand at the famous New York Steinway Hall. The reference piano was the very first produced of Steinway’s groundbreaking new flagship instrument — the Model D Spirio|r, and has been used by some of the most famous pianists in the world today. The new New York Steinway Model D for Pianoteq accompanies the existing Hamburg Steinway D and provides the famous Steinway concert piano sound with superb musical expression.

    Even without using piano plugins, it amazes me how good is this gem of a software both technically and good sounding.

    Everyone <3 Pianoteq, afaik? I wish I could afford pt7, I just hope the lovely dima feels like spending some time!
    Actually, news flash I might be able to afford pt7. Possibly? Couple things up in the air w/ projects atm. It'll be "sometime before xmas" maybe. I hope, this week. I dunno if I can afford the addons. Anyone got any idea how much "complete" is?
