MODARTT Pianoteq 4 Virtual Instrument Plug-In
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.
A new exciting convolution reverb unit simulates real acoustic surroundings, from small studios to giant cathedrals. In Pianoteq Standard or Pianoteq PRO, you can even load your own reverb impulses. Thanks to the improved reverberation, you will experience a sound quality that is comparable to real recordings with the best audio equipments.
New effects that benefit all instruments, especially the electric pianos, are now offered, including delay, chorus, flanger, amplifier and compressor.
Also included is a mallet bounce effect, especially adapted for the chromatic percussion add-on instruments.
