Pianoteq 7: a mature technology

Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac). It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and will even run on some ARM-based boards such as the Raspberry Pi. It can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in in VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.

Pianoteq offers superior playability and reproduces the complex behaviour typical of real acoustic instruments. Moreover, it lets you tweak the sound to your taste with the help of unique parameters. The Pianoteq sounds are authorized by Steinway & Sons, Bechstein, Petrof, Blüthner, Steingraeber, Grotrian, Hohner, among others.

ORGANTEQ
Organteq: physically modelled pipe organs

Organteq is a physically modelled pipe organ for MacOS, Windows and Linux (x86). It includes a standalone version and 64-bit plug-ins for VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.

The organ sound is generated in real time from scratch, reproducing the typical and variable pipe attack transients “chiff” as well as the 3D configuration, where pipes are located in space according to their keyboards. Even the action noises from keys, stops and couplers are modelled. All this makes the instrument livelier than sample based variants, bringing more realistic variability in attack and sustain.

By omitting usage of samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that offered by other virtual organs, perfect for use on any modern laptop. Installation is simple and fast.

Organteq features highlight
  • Physically modelled organ
  • Real time sound generation
  • Three five-octave keyboards and a thirty-two note pedal keyboard
  • Ten assignable stops per keyboard
  • Pipe-per-pipe adjustable parameters for each stop
  • Adjustable tremulant
  • Adjustable expression pedal
  • Adjustable crescendo pedal
  • Adjustable keyboard couplers
  • Adjustable combinations ("presets" for stops)
  • Customizable reverb, from dry to wet sound
  • Adjustable diapason and temperament
  • Fine-tuning note-per-note
  • MIDI Learn feature for assigning external MIDI devices
  • MIDI Mapping with keyboard-split feature
  • Works great on any modern laptop
  • Fast loading - just 20 MB in size
