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.
Because there are no samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that required by other virtual instruments, making Pianoteq perfect for any laptop. Installation is simple and fast.
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.
