Virtually brings the piano to life under your fingertips

What's amazing about MODARTT Pianoteq 5 is its realism. Strike a key on your MIDI controller and it's as though there's a piano there that you can reach out and touch. That's because MODARTT's Pianoteq 5 creates the sound of the piano in real time, taking into account all of the complex factors that make the piano so vivid. You'll hear the interaction between the strings, the use of pedals, the cabinet resonance, and the position of the hammers. From the weakest pianissimo to the strongest fortissimo, what you express on the keyboard will sound pure and natural through Pianoteq 5.

Refined physical modeling brings you a selection of stunning pianos

From Pianoteq's initial 2006 release, MODARTT has continued to develop the physical model for each major version. With a refined attack and soundboard model, Pianoteq 5 raises the bar for clarity and authenticity in its D4, Bluethner Model 1, U4 Upright, and YC5 rock piano. The new 6' 11" Grand Piano K2 combines the best characteristics of several source pianos, delivering a stunning sound with an ideal balance between warmth and brilliance. MODARTT also collaborated with Austria's Kremsegg Schloss Museum to create a collection of lovely historical pianos that are, naturally, perfect for original-instrument music, but they also add a refreshing element to contemporary music productions.

Get inside your own piano workshop and create your dream piano sound

The many adjustable parameters in Pianoteq 5 make it possible to not only adapt the existing adapted piano model, but also to create new piano sounds. This is one of the advantages of a truly modeled piano - it opens up new possibilities for the creative musician. Go ahead and adjust everything from hammer hardness to string tuning and temperament to reverb, resonance, brilliance, timbre, and far beyond.

Efficient plug-in design, you can easily run it on your laptop

At Sweetwater, we have better things to do than wait for plug-ins to load - and we know you do, too. Thanks to its rather modest system requirements, Pianoteq 5 can easily run on a modern laptop - perfect for the traveling musician. Plus, its small size (40MB) and fast interface means fast loading time. Just a few mouse clicks, and you're playing.

Am amazing product

I have owned (or played) many piano sampled instruments including the Steinway Garritan library and 2 generations of pianos from Ivory (including the most recent). I consider these to be excellent sampled instruments and my expectations had to date, been set by these various VI’s. My own personal subjective criteria for virtual pianos is; Is it musical and playable as a pianoAlong came Pianoteq. I discovered Pianoteq through Sweetwater’s superb website. Pianoteq makes it very easy to download their instruments in a trial version. The product is only 40Mb so its a very fast download. Not the typical 50Gb - 70Gb plus 8 hours of download with Piano sampled VI’s. Trial Version: There are 5 notes missing and requires a relaunch every 20 minutes. A very effective and fair trail version for judging the instrument.The Piano:WOW!!!!!….I was immediately blown away by the sound and playability of this instrument and have stopped using all the other sampled Piano instruments I own (except my real Steinway D…!)The MODARTT website is very informative and the video on modeling; how this is done, is fascinating .The various instruments including Rhodes, Vibes, Clavinet's, Concert Harps and historical pianos are incredible.. I spent a day…. playing Chopin’s piano or Mozart’s piano….etcThe modeling is perfect for all styles and genresAdd to that mic simulation and the ability to place mics in reference to the piano you have selected including 5.1 surround and this is a singular and incredible experience.Control of hammer strike, resonance, hammer density (hardness) are just a few of the incredible parameters of control you will haveThe members of the the company MODARTT are equally impressive with the CEO and PhD Computer Scientist/mathematician having been the piano tech for Alicia de Larrocha!! This is an impressive company and I expect great things from them in the still new area of modeling instruments. MacBook Pro, Logic, the Roland A-88 and my Apogee Groove as a beautiful DAC and.... I am in heaven...!

The most profound physical modeling software you can find. It puts those mega GB libraries to shame! You must try their demo for yourself. These are the tone and mic positioning modeling your ears can find. What a shame if you skip this for some library that requires and external drive.
