Modartt updates Pianoteq to v7.5


Modartt has updated Pianoteq to v7.5 which offers improvements to the sound of several grand piano models including Steinway D, Steinway B, Steingraeber E-272, Bluethner Model One, C. Bechstein DG, Ant. Petrof 275 and Petrof 284 Mistral.

The update also introduces a new dampening feature, using mallets as dampers while using the sustain pedal. This feature is often used when playing chromatic percussions, e.g. vibraphone, but can in fact be used with all Pianoteq instruments.

Changes in v7.5.1:

  • Fix issue with velocity preset not being properly saved.
  • Fix "Preferences..." menu entry being greyed on macOS.
  • Fix crash on macOS 10.9.

Changes in 7.5.0:

  • Revoicing of NY Steinway D, HB Steinway D, Steinway B, Ant. Petrof, Petrof Mistral, C. Bechstein DG, Steingraeber, Bl├╝thner.
  • Added option for damping notes when the sustain pedal is pressed, either with low velocity note-on MIDI or aftertouch (option available in the velocity menu).
  • It is now possible to disable external tuning (MTS-ESP, MIDI tuning) in a preset.
  • External tuning can switch between continuous (sounding notes are re-pitched) and new notes only (sounding notes do not change).
  • External tuning now sounds much better when the amount of retuning applied to notes is large.
  • (Standard & Pro) New temperament menu entry for importing the current MTS-ESP tuning as a Pianoteq tuning.
  • Fixed sostenuto pedal when used with diatonic mode.
  • Delay reduced when playing with the Celeste pedal at a very low velocity.
  • Metronome volume and speed are now MIDI controlable.
  • Unsaved MIDI mappings can be restored from the MIDImapping menu, in options / MIDI.
  • Italian manual added.
  • Preview: for advanced users, Pianoteq can be remote controlled with a JSON-RPC API when started with the "--serve localhost:8081" option.
