Modartt recently released Pianoteq 6. Read our full review here.
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.
This major upgrade also adds compatibility with the VST3 format (in addition to VST2 format) and the ARM architecture (Linux version only, for example on Raspberry Pi 3 boards). The tuning section has become even more advanced with new tools, and the standalone version now offers a MIDI playlist, an improved MIDI archive and can export audio to FLAC and MP3 formats, in addition to WAV.
Pianoteq 6 is available in three different versions.
Pianoteq 6 Stage
Pianoteq 6 Stage is the choice of the budget-minded musician who does not need to modify the sound. Pianoteq Stage includes the same instruments, sounds and playability as in Pianoteq Standard and PRO.
Pianoteq 6 Standard
Pianoteq 6 Standard offers unique powerful tools to enhance and modify the sound, such as changing the unison width, hammer hardness and string length. You can place up to 5 virtual microphones around the instrument and load external reverb impulse files.
Pianoteq 6 Pro
Pianoteq 6 PRO is the most advanced version, adapted for the creative composer and demanding studio engineer. In addition to the Standard version, it gives you all the tools needed to work in a truly professional environment, letting you adjust 30 parameters for each note on the keyboard and work with up to 192 Khz audio.
