Modartt has announced the imminent release of Pianoteq Play, a product developed for musicians who want the convenience of a selection of beautiful instruments for an immediate playing session.
Pianoteq Play is a virtual piano based on the powerful physically modelled Pianoteq software instrument. Modartt says that with Pianoteq Play, all demanding musicians can now enjoy the power and beauty of the physically modelled Pianoteq software, which interacts with the player with the same close intimacy as an acoustic piano.
Pianoteq Play users can at any time upgrade to any of the other Pianoteq products to gain further sophisticated features, such as to tweak the physical model or to position virtual microphones around the instrument.
Pianoteq Play supports all Pianoteq add-ons, and if you upgrade to Pianoteq (standard) or Pianoteq PRO, the add-ons themselves upgrade automatically at no additional cost. The grand pianos K1, C3, and M3 are embedded in Pianoteq Play.
- Electric pianos Rhody and Wurly.
- Rock piano YC5.
- Clavinet CL1.
- Vibraphones V-M and V-B.
The free add-on KIViR offers a unique collection of historical instruments: cimbalom, harpsichords, pianoforte, early pianos, CP80 electric piano.
