Pianoteq 6 is an award-winning virtual instrument that can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in. What makes Pianoteq different from other virtual instruments is that the instruments are physically modelled and thus can simulate the playability and complex behaviour of real acoustic instruments. By omitting usage of samples, the file size is a tiny fraction of that offered by other virtual instruments, and perfect for use on any modern laptop or desktop computer.

Version 6 of Pianoteq brings numerous refinements in its engine and physical model, now implemented in all of the 52 physically modelled instruments.

Steinway & Sons have approved the sound and playability of the Pianoteq virtual instruments Steinway Model D and Steinway Model B, which have gained from the refined physical model. These magnificent virtual grand pianos will appeal to all musicians in search of the most famous piano sound signature.

This major upgrade also adds compatibility with the VST3 format (in addition to VST2 format) and the ARM architecture (Linux version only, for example on Raspberry Pi 3 boards). The tuning section has become even more advanced with new tools, and the standalone version now offers a MIDI playlist, an improved MIDI archive and can export audio to FLAC and MP3 formats, in addition to WAV.
