Pianoteq STAGE, formerly known as Pianoteq PLAY, is based on the same recently refined acoustic model as in version 4 of Pianoteq Standard and PRO. It includes the same instruments, sound and playability. The interface is scaled down, tailored to focus entirely on playing.
Focusing on playing – Formerly known as Pianoteq PLAY, Pianoteq STAGE is the new version for budget-minded musicians who prefer to focus entirely on playing rather than sound adaptation or specialized studio recording.
New sound – Pianoteq STAGE offers the same refined physical model as in version 4 of the Standard and PRO version, including the new grand piano D4 where a Steinway D from Hamburg has served as reference. Designed with extreme care, each note is adjusted and voiced up to perfection, resulting in a stunningly vivid instrument.
Convolution reverberation – Pianoteq STAGE makes use of a new exciting convolution reverb unit that simulates real acoustic surroundings, from small studios to giant cathedrals, enhancing the sound quality and listening experience.
New effects – New effects that benefit the electric pianos but also other Pianoteq instruments are included, such as delay, chorus, flanger, amplifier and compressor. Also included is a mallet bounce effect, especially adapted for the chromatic percussion add-on instruments (vibes, xylophone, marimba, cimbalom…).
