Pianoteq is a high-class virtual piano software offering superb dynamics, natural resonances and unique physical parameters. The powerful innovative features of Pianoteq, based on physical modelling and real time sound generation, make it the natural choice for demanding musicians including composers, producers and keyboardists. Pianoteq features also other instruments such as harpsichords, electric pianos, vibraphones, historical instruments, etc.

Pianoteq is available in three versions:

  • PIANOTEQ PLAY version is for musicians who want to plug it in and play without tweaking the physical model. It includes standard features such as velocity curve, EQ, dynamics, action settings, tremolo, wah-wah, etc.
  • PIANOTEQ Standard version offers in addition powerful tools to tweak and adapt the physical model as well as the microphones position.
  • PIANOTEQ PRO version goes even further with its Note Edit adapted for those who require complete freedom over sound shaping and creation.
