Pianoteq 5 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 just 40 MB, installation is quick and easy, allowing the software to be used on any modern laptop with a MIDI controller keyboard.
Pianoteq 5 Standard offers tools to enhance and modify the 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 (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.
Note: This item is for registered users of Pianoteq Stage or Play who wish to upgrade to Pianoteq Standard.
