aha found the quote of Venus Theory: "Piano V is actually based on the Pianoteq engine if I remember correctly!"
well, some inside information.....
I don’t know who or what Venus Theory is, but I own both Pianoteq Studio 7 and Piano V2, and I can assure you there is no Pianoteq in Piano V.
Pianoteq is amazing. Piano V is… interesting. You can make some interesting synthy piano sounds with it, especially with the glass piano. But unlike Pianoteq, there is nothing remotely realistic about Piano V.
It was actually Piano V that led me to check out Pianoteq and ultimately buy it when I realized I had to have it in my life.
I think the other models V-Collection has in common with Pianoteq (clavinet & Rhodes) and are comparable, though. I actually like to layer the Arturia and Pianoteq models together. Surprising it works and sounds better and fuller than either by themselves.
it is a who, quite known, but does not matter.
it seems, by that statement, and the link, that Pianteq has supplied some DSP for Piano V.
i am not sure of course.
Pianoteq is of course very very different than Piano V2. you see more brands/developers that make code for other brands/developers. does not mean of course, the same possibilities.... and sometimes only a very basic distallation...
i can be short; you are right, i think..., the things you can with Pianoteq are quite impressive, but for me, not a piano player, o well Pianoteq gives you possibilies that makes a prepared piano (if i am not mistaken).
interesting! about layering, i can understand that, if you hear a real piano, it has so many, how will a phrase it..... angles of harmonics??? within itself, and the room. it is not an expert term...
i can't judge Pianoteq, did demo it once, long time ago, so no real recollection. demoed it? or played with it by someone else. don't remember...
within the Arturia realm, Piano V2 stands, i think.
Pianoteq has a quite different, and focused approach. i sometimes look at the website.. perhaps someday...
but how i work now, and MSoundFactory has a great piano, that you can mangle, not realistic perhaps, i am focused on other software.
but i wouldn't be surprised if Pianoteq did some coding, or licensed some of their code...
well not important. they are, even when it is true, 2 different approaches, with Pianoteq as the most focused, i repeat, approach, also for, o well, a lot of things..
