Pianoteq 12-41379 overview

  • 1Description

Pianoteq 6 Standard 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 less than 50MB, installation is quick and easy, allowing the software to be used on any modern laptop with a MIDI controller keyboard.

Pianoteq 6 Standard offers a variety of tools to enhance and modify the piano sound, such as changing the unison width, hammer hardness, and string length. Up to five virtual microphones (from a choice of fifteen) can be placed around the instrument and external reverb impulse files loaded into the convolution reverb.

The software comes in three flavors with a choice of two when purchased. They include acoustic pianos (Steinway D and K2 grand pianos), electric instruments (MKI, MKII, W1, PIANET N & T, Electra, and 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 6

  • Sound and playability of Steinway Model D and Steinway Model B virtual instruments approved by Steinway & Sons
