Modartt updates Pianoteq to v8.3.0 and releases Bösendorfer Concert Grand 280VC


Modartt has updated Pianoteq to v8.3.0 and announced the release of the first physical model of Bösendorfer's concert grand piano 280VC, authorized by Bösendorfer and available as an instrument pack for Pianoteq. Here's what they say:

For many years, Pianoteq users have requested Bösendorfer pianos as part of our expanding library of grand pianos. It's easy to understand why: breathtaking dynamics, astounding colours, exhilarating brilliance, a sound as clear as diamonds, yet playfully gleaming like beaming sparkles of light.

Authorized by Bösendorfer, the physical model of Pianoteq faithfully captures the rich resonance and dynamic spectrum of the instrument, making it a true joy to play and bringing many hours of listening pleasure. Pianoteq offers a range of exciting presets, adapted for various music genres.

Franz Liszt, Arthur Rubinstein, Victor Borge, Leonard Bernstein, Oscar Peterson, Vangelis, Tori Amos, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Daniil Trifonov, and many more, have been using Bösendorfer pianos in their careers, leading to many prominent recordings.

The Bösendorfer Concert Grand 280VC can be purchased for €49/$49 and is accessible in the latest update 8.3 of Pianoteq for evaluation. A free trial version and further details are available on the website: www.modartt.com


Changes in Pianoteq 8.3.0:

  • New grand piano: Grand Bösendorfer 280VC.
  • The MIDI demos embedded in presets can now be loaded and played in the MIDI player of the standalone app.
  • On macOS, checkbox added in options/devices that automatically selects the default audio device.
  • Pressing the Alt key on macOS / Ctrl key on Windows, while launching the app starts Pianoteq in safe mode.
