Will definitely be picking this one up. In fact, I can see myself buying most of the addon's at the moment. Pianoteq just keeps getting better and better :tu:

I keep putting Pianoteq off but I know it's just a matter of time until I get a license.

I still prefer Pianoteq's Bluethner piano.

I’ve got the Blüthner and this Steingraeber is its perfect companion, Mozart Rail and Sordino pedal included.

I agree. A physical modeled piano is much more expressive than any sampled piano, IMO.
Sampling can't dynamically emulate sympathetic resonances like a model can.

Yes, but i still miss the more characterful keys like the Wing Tack piano in Keyscape in Pianoteq.
Another grand is the most boring i can imagine these days.
But of course that‘s me.
But i hope Organteq comes one day. Didn‘t heard much after the sneak peak.

Would it be a good piano for very contemporary pop, like Tom Odell or Olafur Arnalds influenced stuff, which is a lot of delicate playing and extra felt? Might buy this for a song I'm finishing up for a singer right now... I think it's using the prepared Steinway preset from Pianoteq, modified some more.

Yes, I also have keyscape and there are some lovely sounds in there, a true labour of love....You can of course tweak pianoteq to get more interesting sounds, right up to ambient surreal type sounds, the (more expensive standard or pro) engine offers a lot of options up to per note and overtone editing...

I generally agree with the excellence of pianoteq,
and the randomizer is over-the-top delightful,
but recently searched my plugins for a great general-purpose
grand piano, and somewhat to my surprise, the winners were
from IK's SonikSynth2

So I went to google for some confirmation/refutation
of this conclusion, and found this old piano-thread, that
I'm pretty sure predates the birth of pianoteq, but points to
some pretty decent pianos, that one might get cheap
when purchasing an old IK account somewhere

viewtopic.php?p=1264106

There is also a nice tip from Kim Lajoie relating to polyphony issues
on piano plugins. Maybe a Fathers Day sale for pianoteq will
magically appear?
