Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument for PC, Mac, Linux and iOS. It can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in in VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.
What makes Pianoteq superior to other virtual instruments is that the instruments are physically modelled and thus can simulate the playability and complex behaviour of real acoustic instruments.
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.
Pianoteq 8 for iOS is now available on iPhones and iPads. Years of development and thorough testing made it possible to take all the peculiarities of handheld devices into account in order to maximize productivity while retaining the app as stable and compatible as possible. Pianoteq 8 for iOS is included with all licences of Pianoteq 8 (Stage/Standard/Pro) and can be downloaded and evaluated via the App Store.
The nylon Classical Guitar, available as an instrument pack for Pianoteq 8, introduces a new exciting category of physically modelled instruments, with emulated gestures and natural instrument noises for breathtaking realism.
The instrument UI is designed so that you do not have to be a guitarist to use it. Various tweaked presets are offered, ranging from a 12-string acoustic guitar to a Greek bouzouki or even an electric guitar.
You really need to hear it to believe it!
