Pro version of Pianoteq offers new note per note adjustment for physical parameters 30/10/09
Modartt has announced the release of Pianoteq Pro. Announced in June 2007 on the Pianoteq forum and awaited by many customers, Pianoteq Pro is the advanced version of Pianoteq. Its major novelty is the note per note adjustment for physical parameters which gives you the ultimate tool for sound shaping and instrument creation.
Here's all the details directly from Modartt...
For the first time in the history of pianos, complete control of physical parameters of the piano is made available to the user. In the real world, reshaping a soundboard would require several weeks of work in the factory. With Pianoteq Pro, you have a new soundboard only one mouse click away!
Pianoteq Pro offers note per note adjustment for no less than 22 physical parameters, such as tuning, unison width, hammer hardness, strike point, string length, spectrum profile, soundboard impedance, damper position... In fact there are thousands since each overtone of each note can be controlled separately with the spectrum profile parameter!
In 1977, Gabriel Weinreich concluded his grounding article "Coupled piano strings" with "In any case, one could expect to build a better piano if the aftersound could be more deliberately controlled through an appropriate understanding of the soundboard". Thirty-two years later, Weinreich's dream is becoming reality with Pianoteq Pro. Pianoteq PRO features:
Note per note adjustment for 22 physical parameters: detune, unison width, direct sound duration, hammer hardness piano, hammer hardness mezzo, hammer hardness forte, spectrum profile, hammer noise, strike point, pickup symmetry, pickup distance, impedance, cutoff, Q factor, string length, note resonance, quadratic effect, damper position, damper duration, damper noise, key release noise, volume. Restricted to detune and volume in the Standard version.
Internal sample rate available up to 192 kHz. Restricted to 48 kHz in the Standard version.
The Note Edit feature is a very powerful tool that lets you adjust parameters for each note or specific ranges of choice. You will thus have the ultimate tool for shaping sounds and creating your own pianos or other imaginary instruments. For the creative musician it opens up a wealth of new possibilities. You can also turn one Pianoteq instrument into a multi-instrument by using advanced keyboard splits for up to 88 notes. The note editor is designed so that you can work with it effectively, saving you time and bringing you possibilities. On top of this, the spectrum profile editor included lets you adjust each overtone for each note, bringing you thousands of sound combinations that will help you creating your own unique instrument.
Pianoteq Pro is the natural choice for composers, audio engineers, keyboardists and others who are interested in having full freedom to create and adapt the Pianoteq sound to their own needs. Pricing and Availability:
