The newly released version 8 of Pianoteq introduces a Classical Guitar, revoiced instruments for enhanced realism, a refined GUI, new features, and compatibility with forthcoming iOS version.
The nylon Classical Concert Guitar for Pianoteq introduces a new exciting category of physically modelled instruments, with emulated gestures and natural instrument noises for breathtaking realism. The instrument UI is designed so that you do not have to be a guitarist to use it. Various tweaked presets are offered, ranging from a 12-string acoustic guitar to a Greek bouzouki or even an electric guitar. You really need to try it to believe it.
All contemporary acoustic pianos, the Vintage Reeds electric piano and the Concert Harp have been carefully revoiced in order to increase authenticity and playability of these instruments. Everything is tailored to suit demanding recording projects and performances.
New slick GUI facelift
Reflecting this new major upgrade, Pianoteq 8 offers a fresh streamlined user interface, enhancing readability and usability. Instruments and scenes are now nicely displayed for a clear presentation of selected presets.
A number of new features are introduced. Among these, sympathetic resonance fed by external audio input, user defined stretch points for piano fine tuning, and per-note vibrato and tremolo effects.
The long awaited app for Apple iOS is in progress and will be compatible with Pianoteq 8.
