Pianoteq is a vst, au, rtas and stand-alone virtual instrument which behaves as if you were in front of a real piano. The program gives the composer all the improvements that offer present technology, enhancing the possibilities of the sampled piano overcoming its limitations in an attempt to imitate the “real” one. When you play the piano you can adjust a lot of features, like hammer hardness and overtunes spectrum, for example, just to mention a few. Former generations only allowed you to play a recorded sample of the note, and it was impossible to access any customization of it. Now with Pianoteq, you can access many personalization features with a user-friendly interface that will make you feel like you’re playing a real piano.
Another important feature is the portability of the program: It uses a small amount of computer resources, 15 MB of disk space, allowing you to use it comfortably also in a modern laptops, so it is considerably small and loads fast enough. Pianoteq also has advanced voicing, tuning and soundboard adjustment, with reverberation and equalizer possibilities.
