Pianoteq 5 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 upgrade to the PRO version at any time.
Pianoteq represents the future of virtual pianos, providing the best and latest technology available. The sound is reproduced through a physical model that simulates properties and behaviours of real acoustic pianos. This results in a remarkably playable, vivid and adaptable instrument. The size of Pianoteq is just 40 MB (MegaBytes) and installation is quick and easy. You can use Pianoteq on any modern laptop and connect it to your MIDI compatible piano keyboard.
Refined piano sound
Modartt has devoted two years of research in developing and refining the award-winning Pianoteq physical model. Pianoteq 5 brings more body and soul to the instruments, refining the attack and soundboard model, adding more clarity and authenticity. The refined piano sound is applied to the current grand pianos D4, Blüthner Model 1, YC5 Rock Piano, and the upright piano U4, which can all be purchased in our online store.
Prestigious Kremsegg collection
The Kremsegg Collections I & II are beautiful historical instruments which can be purchased in our online store. They are created in collaboration with the Kremsegg Schloss Museum, Austria, where the original instruments are displayed. The instruments range from the 18th Century to the late 19th Century and include pianofortes and grand pianos, incomparable for rendering the music of the Classical period. The late 19th Century pianos, with a design approaching that of a modern piano, can by all means also be used for jazz and other modern music.
New microphones bring a higher level of control
The improved physical model in Pianoteq 5 makes it possible to work with directional microphones such as cardioid and figure 8. Fifteen microphones of well-known brands are modelled, increasing the palette of available sound colours. New features have been added: the microphones can be rotated in all three dimensions and attached together for their positioning, and they also offer control over polarity and the proximity effect.
