As a Christmas gift to all their customers, Modartt hereby announce a Neupert Clavichord, based on a “Modell Philipp Emanuel Bach”, as part of our KIViR collection of historical instruments. The clavichord, invented in the early 14th Century, is a predecessor to the piano and to the more recent clavinet.
Modartt releases Steelpans add-on for Pianoteq. It includes 4 instruments offering a superb playability: Steel Drum, Spacedrum, Hand Pan and Tank Drum.
As a Christmas gift to all Pianoteq customers, MODARTT announces its latest instrument add-on: a virtual copy of a Tubular Bells.
As a Christmas gift to all Pianoteq customers, MODARTT announces its latest instrument add-on: a virtual copy of a Pleyel grand piano from 1926. Modartt is pleased to announce the release of a Pleyel add-on — a virtual copy of grand piano Pleyel model F from 1926 (size 1.64 m) provided by Christophe Nebout, specialist in restoration of pianos from the early XXth Century (www.pianosnebout.com).
MODARTT releases Pianoteq add-on Xylo which includes a Xylophone and a Bass Marimba. Simultaneously, MODARTT announces two new add-ons collections: Chromatic Percussions (Vibes, Celeste, Xylo) and Rock collection (Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Rock Piano).
MODARTT releases Pianoteq add-on Celeste which includes a celesta and a glockenspiel. These instruments are appreciated for their pure, bell-like sound, and are still popular today, appearing in everything from marching bands to jazz ensembles.
Modartt have expanded their collection of high class pianos in the latest version 3.6 of Pianoteq by the addition of the magnificent K1 Grand Piano. This new instrument, produced in the Modartt virtual piano factory, combines stunning dynamics, sharp attacks and powerful fortissimos with a very nice woody percussive quality.
MODARTT releases a cimbalom add-on, a new virtual instrument included in their KIViR (Keyboard Instruments Virtual Restoration) collection, offered for free to all Pianoteq customers. The cimbalom is regarded as the precursor of the piano.
Modartt proudly present the brand new Rock Piano add-on (YC5). It is developed to meet demands for a specific pop/rock piano, modelled from a famous Japanese grand piano, frequently seen on stages and very much appreciated by touring artists for its musical qualities and reliability. Its bright and vivid tone makes it addictive and cuts through elegantly in pop/rock oriented mixes. It is embedded as demo instrument in the latest Pianoteq update 3.0.5.
Using a newly extended model, PIANOTEQ can now reproduce the beautiful sound of the vibraphone. Two virtual vibraphones, V-M and V-B, reproduce faithfully the characteristic sound of two well-known vibraphone brands. Thanks to the physical model the range of the vibraphones is extended from 3 to 5 octaves. Each instrument is provided with several variants and by using interface features, such as mallet hardness and tremolo, you can customize them to your own taste.
An update 3.0.2 is available for download in the user area. The trial version is also updated. Modarrt have made some minor modifications to the C3 instrument sound: more punch in fortissimo, slightly longer notes and slightly longer harp resonance.
After nearly two years of research we are proud to finally present the long awaited and much improved version 3 of Pianoteq. This new version is a free upgrade to all customers through the user account. If you are not yet a customer, a trial version of Pianoteq 3 with the Rhody and Wurly add-ons is available here.
