Modartt has launched Pianoteq 5, an update of the virtual piano instrument for Windows, Mac and Linux.
We have devoted two years of research to developing and refining the award-winning Pianoteq physical model.
Pianoteq 5 brings a new clarity and authenticity to the piano sound. Moreover, it offers no less than 9 new piano models, and sound recording is taken to a higher level of control with the addition of directional microphones, letting you choose from a range of well-known microphone brands.
Changes in Pianoteq 5
- All instruments brought up-to-date with latest model improvements, D4 and YC5 re-built from scratch.
- Nine new instruments: Grand K2 and the Kremsegg Collection.
- The free KIVIR instruments are still those of version 4, but we are working on them and a very improved version will be available soon. Stay tuned.
- Directional microphones support, which can be rotated in all directions.
- Many microphone models, with various directivity patterns, are available.
- Microphones can be linked together, and then moved or rotated together.
- The polarity of a microphone can be reversed (for M/S recording situations, typically).
- The four pedals of the interface can be re-assigned to a few parameters such as Rattle, Lute Stop, Celeste, Super Sostenuto.
- Improved key noises, with an optional humanization of the parameters.
- Pianoteq presets (FXP files) can now embed a short MIDI excerpt.
- Dithering added to the audio export in Pianoteq Standalone.
- Small metronome improvements.
Pianoteq 5 is available for purchase for 99 EUR (Stage) / 249 EUR (Standard) / 399 EUR (Pro). Owners of previous versions of Pianoteq can upgrade for 29 EUR.
