Breathtaking realism

Pianoteq 6 brings numerous refinements in its engine and physical model, increasing realism and acoustic presence on all its modelled instruments: acoustic pianos, electro-acoustic pianos, historical instruments and chromatic percussions. Pianoteq becomes, more than ever, an immense joy to play.

Authorized by Steinway & Sons 

Steinway & Sons have approved the sound and playability of the Pianoteq virtual instruments Steinway Model D and Steinway Model B, which have gained from the refined physical model. These magnificent virtual grand pianos will appeal to all musicians in search of the most famous piano sound signature.

New supported formats

Pianoteq 6 facilitates your workflow by adding compatibility with the VST3 format and the ARM architecture (Linux version only, for example on Raspberry Pi 3 boards). VST3 is the latest plug-in platform developed by Steinberg, and is supported by many audio hosts. Compatibility with the ARM architecture means that Pianoteq 6 can be used with RISC based CPU's used in smaller Linux based consumer electronic devices.

Advanced tuning tools

In the Pianoteq Standard and Pro versions, the tuning section has become even more advanced with new tools, adapted for those of you who are into microtuning and other tuning experiments.

MIDI playlist and archive

The standalone version now offers a MIDI playlist and an improved MIDI archive. You can load a set of MIDI files to be played back, like a jukebox. Everything you play on your keyboard is automatically recorded in MIDI format, now archived and accessible as multiple MIDI files. No need to worry about a performance lost, you can easily find it again.

Improved MIDI mapping

The MIDI mapping in Pianoteq 6 now adds the option to save locally (current preset) or globally (all presets).

Audio export in FLAC and MP3 formats

Besides the WAV format, you can now export your audio files in the lossless compressed format FLAC and the lossy compressed format MP3. This will save you some time and effort, bypassing the need to do audio conversion afterwards.

What you play is what you see

In the standalone version, the virtual keyboard displays keys in colour when you depress them on your keyboard. You can thus more easily see what you and others play, useful for piano practice. Chords are also detected and displayed.

Fine details of sound

VIVID The piano creates the sound in real time while you are playing and takes into account all the complex factors that makes the piano a truly vivid instrument, such as the interaction between strings, the use of pedals, the cabinet resonance and the position of the hammers. It will feel like you have a real piano in front of you... as if you could just lean over and touch the strings!

VERSATILE Pianoteq introduces new methods to adjust the piano sound to just the way you like it! Changes that until now could only be made by piano tuners are now possible directly from the interface. Within seconds you can adjust the sound to a particular type of music or playing style. The many choices can be saved as a customized setting which you can share with other Pianoteq users.

EXPRESSIVE All the detailed variations of the timbre are there, from the weakest pianissimo to the strongest fortissimo! What you express on your keyboard will also be what you actually hear. The sound of even the weakest pianissimo is absolutely pure without any audible quantization noise.

CONVENIENT Conveniently for the travelling musician, Pianoteq runs well on a modern laptop. Pianoteq loads quickly because of the extremely small size (less than 50 MB).
