Modartt releases Pianoteq 8 - Classical Guitar, revoiced instruments, refined GUI and more


Modartt has announced the release of Pianoteq 8, which introduces a Classical Guitar, revoiced instruments for enhanced realism, a refined GUI, new features, and compatibility with forthcoming iOS version.

Classical guitar
The nylon Classical Concert Guitar for Pianoteq introduces a new category of physically modelled instruments, with emulated gestures and natural instrument noises for "breathtaking realism". The instrument UI is designed so that you do not have to be a guitarist to use it. Various tweaked presets are offered, ranging from a 12-string acoustic guitar to a Greek bouzouki or even an electric guitar.

Revoiced instruments
All contemporary acoustic pianos, the Vintage Reeds electric piano and the Concert Harp have been carefully revoiced in order to increase authenticity and playability of these instruments. Everything is tailored to suit demanding recording projects and performances.

GUI facelift
Reflecting this new major upgrade, Pianoteq 8 offers a fresh streamlined user interface, enhancing readability and usability. Instruments and scenes are now nicely displayed for a clear presentation of selected presets.

New features
A number of new features are introduced. Among these, sympathetic resonance fed by external audio input, user defined stretch points for piano fine tuning, and per-note vibrato and tremolo effects.

iOS app
The long awaited app for Apple iOS is in progress and will be compatible with Pianoteq 8.

A free trial version of Pianoteq 8 is available for your evaluation. An upgrade path is offered to registered Pianoteq users for 29€ / $29.
