Modartt announces release of PIANOTEQ 4 virtual piano instrument
Ramonville Saint Agne, France (MuseWire) – MODARTT S.A.S announced this week the release of PIANOTEQ 4, the company’s virtual piano instrument; slated for May 2012. Pianoteq 4 introduces the grand piano D4 which is the result of three years of research of refining the physical model that describes the hammers, the strings, the soundboard and their interaction.
According to the company, “Pianoteq 4 represents the future of virtual pianos, providing the best and latest technology available. The sound is reproduced through a physical model that simulates properties and behaviours of real acoustic pianos. This results in a remarkably playable, vivid and adaptable instrument. The size of Pianoteq is just 20MB and installation is quick and easy. You can use Pianoteq on any modern laptop and connect it to your MIDI compatible piano keyboard.”
New grand piano D4:
Pianoteq 4 introduces the grand piano D4 which is the result of three years of research of refining the physical model that describes the hammers, the strings, the soundboard and their interaction. A Steinway D from Hamburg has served as reference and its main characteristics have been used for feeding the physical model. Each note has been carefully adjusted in its finest detail, just like in a real factory. The result is a stunningly vivid instrument created with the most demanding musician in mind.
New effects that benefit all instruments, especially the electric pianos, are now offered, including delay, chorus, flanger, amplifier and compressor.
