Pianoteq's Modelled Piano is a revolutionary virtual instrument that makes sampled-based piano software obsolete. How many times have you read "revolutionary" and "piano" in the same sentence? Probably never, unless they were talking about an otherworldly player. Why? The last wave of virtual incarnations simply use a recording of how a note sounded at a specific moment for you to play around with.

Modartt's engineers have leapt over that piano benchmark by developing an instrument that creates sound in real time, as you play, that takes into account all the complex factors of a real piano. The interaction of strings, use of pedals, cabinet resonance, duplex scale, and the position of the hammers are just some of the ways you will be able to generate the vivid expression and "feel" you would get sitting at a Steinway in Carnagie Hall. From pianissimo to fortissimo, the detailed timbre you'll find absolutely bellissimo.

Included in the interface are many parameters you can tweak, including diapason, tuning improvements, hammer adjustment, resonance, reverberation, sound length, brilliance, and more. Amazingly enough, the Pianoteq Modelled Piano takes up little hard drive space, and can used on PCs, Macs. Although it works with any MIDI keyboard, to fully experience the innovations of the Pianoteq, it's suggested to use one with a keyboard that simulates real piano keyboard action.
