Modartt Tubular Bells

Modartt has released a new free add-on as Christmas gift: The Tubular Bells.

As a Christmas gift to all Pianoteq customers, we hereby announce our latest instrument add-on: a virtual copy of a Tubular Bells, also known as Symphonic Chimes.

Tubular Bells is an instrument made of brass tubes of graded length that are tuned to a chromatic scale and usually covers the range of 1½ octave. The sound is produced by striking the top edge of the tubes with a plastic-headed hammer. The instrument often includes an attached damping mechanism. It appeared for the first time in England in the late 19th Century, and is ever since part of major symphonic orchestras, known as symphonic chimes.

The Tubular Bells add-on is modelled after a Bergerault 18 Note concert chimes. Thanks to Pianoteq’s powerful technology, the note range in the virtual copy is extended into a 4-octave instrument.

The Tubular Bells is available to download for registered Pianoteq users.

Modartt expands Pianoteq pianos to 105 keys (8⅔ octaves)

Modartt Pianoteq

Modartt has introduced an extended keyboard range for its Pianoteq K1, C3 and M3 virtual grand piano instruments.

Grand pianos that offer an expanded keyboard range are rare and extremely expensive. A very well-known example of such a high class instrument is the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand, with its 97 keys expanding the bass range. Stuart & Sons have also built innovative 102 keys pianos, increasing both the bass and the treble range of the piano.

MODARTT takes up the challenge by providing an unprecedented extra-large key range for its exclusive grand pianos K1, C3 and M3, with no less than 105 keys (17 keys more than the standard keyboard range), ranging from ultra-low rumbling bass to very high bird-like pitches.

The keyboard range expansion was developed to correspond to an increasing demand from Pianoteq users for additional notes. The extended sound palette, obtained thanks to the powerful Pianoteq physical modelling, can be used for example in prominent piano works by Debussy, Ravel and Bártok.

The expanded piano models are included in the latest update 3.6.5 which is free to all Pianoteq customers.

Modartt releases Xylo add-on for Pianoteq + Rock & Chromatic Percussions Collections

Pianoteq Xylo add-on

Modartt has released a Xylo add-on for Pianoteq, a virtual piano instrument for Windows and Mac.

Xylophone and Bass Marimba are similar to the vibraphone but are using wooden bars instead of aluminium. Each bar, that vibrates when hit with mallets, is paired with a metallic resonator which is tuned to amplify the sound.

The origin of the xylophone dates back several thousand years in Africa and South East Asia. The marimba appeared at the same time and is today the symbol of Guatemalan music. Due to its huge size, the bass marimba sounds more than two octaves below the xylophone. Very popular both, they are used in various musical styles from classical to Latin and rock.

The Pianoteq virtual copies of these two instruments are respectively modelled after a modern 3½-octave French brand xylophone and a modern 5-octave French brand bass marimba. Thanks to the sophisticated Pianoteq physical model, they come in several variants and benefit from the recently developed humanization feature which allows varying the strike point, adding to the musician’s interpretation a vivid and stunning realism.

The Xylo add-on for Pianoteq is available to purchase for 49 EUR.

Modartt has also introduced two new bundles:

  • Rock Collection 89 EUR, includes Electric pianos, Clavinet, and Rock piano add-ons.
  • Chromatic Percussions Collection 99 EUR, includes Vibes, Celeste, and Xylo add-ons.
