Pianoteq 12-41380 overview

  • 1Description

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.

What's New in Version 5
  • Refined attack and soundboard model, adding more clarity and authenticity
  • Work with directional microphones such as cardioid and figure 8
  • Fifteen microphones of well-known brands are modeled increasing the palette of available sound colors
  • Microphones can be rotated in all three dimensions and attached together for their positioning, with control over polarity and the proximity effect
