Pianoteq 5 PRO from Pianoteq is a virtual piano that utilizes physical modeling to simulate the properties and behaviors of real acoustic pianos. With a load size of just 40 MB, installation is quick and easy, allowing the software to be used on any modern laptop with a MIDI controller keyboard.

The PRO version is adapted for the creative composer and demanding studio engineer, with the primary differences over the Standard and Stage versions being the ability to adjust twenty-eight parameters for each note on the keyboard, and work with up to 192 KHz audio. Additionally, any instrument can be turned into a multi-instrument by using advanced keyboard splits for up to 105 notes.

The software comes in three flavors with a choice of two when purchased. They include acoustic pianos (D4 and K2 grand pianos), electric instruments (R2 and W1 electric pianos and CL1 clavinet) and chromatic percussion (V-B and V-M vibes, xylophone and marimba). More optional instruments can be purchased at any time and loaded into the software.

This item is for registered users of Pianoteq 5 Stage or Play who wish to upgrade to Pianoteq 5 PRO.

To be clear - This version includes 2 Pianos? Both D4 and K2 grand pianos. ?
Asked by: Gill
Correct. After you buy the software you need to make an account with Modartt/Pianoteq in order to download it and obtain the license (3 machines at a time, reassignable). At that time you get to decide which two instrument packs to buy and this combination K2 grand piano & D4 grand piano is one of them.

Any suggestions for an 88 Key Controller for Pianoteq? Considering Nektar Technology Impact LX88+. Thoughts?
Asked by: Gill
The Nektar LX88+ is a solid choice for a full size controller that features a semi weighted keybed for a more realistic playing experience. In the price range of the Nectar unit you will not find many with this feature. Please feel free to contact a Pro Audi Sales Representative here at 800-606-6969 or email [email protected] to discuss possible options and features. We will be happy to help.
