29/06/2021: New Felt piano presets added to Pianoteq

Inserting felt between strings and hammers in a piano can bring out exciting effects.

The new Felt presets in Pianoteq are based on an improved continuous Celeste pedal, which lets you adjust the felt thickness - a unique feature offered only by Pianoteq.
The soft and delicate felt piano sound reminds of certain movie soundtracks, bringing a dark, intimate, cozy blanket of foggy delight.

The Felt presets are included for free in all registered contemporary pianos in Pianoteq 7.
