After three years of research, Modartt takes a step forward with Pianoteq 6, distinguished by its mature technology, breathtaking realism, increased compatibility, and new features.
Since its introduction in 2006, Pianoteq has gradually become a mature and natural companion for a wide range of musicians for use in everything from private homes and piano classrooms to recording studios and concert halls. Pianoteq 6 brings numerous refinements in its engine and physical model, now implemented in all of the 49 physically modelled instruments.
Steinway & Sons have approved the sound and playability of the Pianoteq virtual instruments Steinway Model D and Steinway Model B, which have gained from the refined physical model. These magnificent virtual grand pianos will appeal to all musicians in search of the most famous piano sound signature.
Musicians have always loved Pianoteq for what it does — responding and interacting just like a real acoustic instrument, and allowing the player to tweak the beautiful sounds in amazing ways — all with a tiny memory footprint. Pianoteq 6 advances further by increasing the realism and acoustic presence of all Pianoteq instruments: acoustic pianos, electro-acoustic pianos, historical instruments and chromatic percussion. They are, more than ever, an immense joy to play.
Pianoteq 6 facilitates your workflow by adding compatibility with the VST3 format and the ARM architecture (Linux version only, for example on Raspberry Pi 3 boards). It includes chord identification, and the tuning section has become even more advanced with new tools. The standalone version now offers a MIDI playlist, an improved MIDI archive, and the ability to export audio to FLAC and MP3 formats, in addition to WAV.
