It seems like they release a new version every two years around this time (May).

When I upgraded to version 5, I got the U4 (upright) for free. This was part of a special offer.
I hope they have a similar offer when version 6 comes out. It would be great to get the new B model for free, or at a reduced price, with the purchase/upgrade to the new version.

The newest upgrade/bug-fix for Pianoteq 5 was released last month (22nd april, Version 5.6.2). It seems that they renew the program every 2-3 years... Maybe we should wait 2017 for Pianoteq 6?

Is it true they have a summer sale for Pianoteq? To me Pianoteq gets rather pricey considering I am only really interested in the simulators of C18/19 pianos which have to be added onto the cost of the basic program. I am more pleased with the simulations of these old pianos than the ones of pianos that I am only too familiar with and have been hashed to death in sample packs.
Pianoteq 2 sounds seemed to be based on a bell tone, and it sounds to me like they have done a lot of effective work recently to make it sound like a true string instrument.

Hopefully Pianoteq 6 will be getting released as an iPad app - it's another potential revenue stream for modartt

£7.99 seems reasonable to me

Are you for real wink ... Modartt certainly aren't in the business of making themselves cheap. The program is only 40MB or so, you're paying for algorithms, yet they still charge at least 100 euro plus another 100 for ten period museum instrument models.
For what it's worth, I think their policy is wrong. I think they should just release one instrument without some of the tweaking people forget about after the first hour... at a far cheaper price.

Well that pretty much describes "Stage" which I think is an excellent value. An iPad & Android version with just one instrument for $19.99 and in app purchases of additional instruments would sell a lot more than the desktop versions!

Even "Stage" (which I own) has several different modelled pianos. And I suspect it needs more CPU speed than most iPads, and Android devices, offer.

It's not "consumer electronics", or mass-market software. Most beginning piano students won't be interested. Few customers, and substantial development costs, lead to its high price (relative to typical iPad / Android apps).

I'm sure Modartt would be happy to have millions of customers, and lower prices.

Ah, no, you failed to grasp my point that I was interested in the instruments and not in the tweaks. Why would I be interested in the tweaks? Pianoteq lets me do things I would never bother to in real life- changing the length of the strings, the hardness of the hammers, the position of the hammers, aliquot strings, blah. Cute if I'm a nerd, but no more. I'm only interested in a piano simulator with a low resource overhead, not a build-a-piano simulator. I think this is a case of the mathematicians who designed this not seeing the wood for the trees. They might be very proud of how they've modelled these things, but it simply means little to me.
I'd rather have the option of one instrument I wanted than 2 tweakable instruments I don't want for 100 euro and then instrument packs on top.
Say I have a DP I already play in various tunings in hardware but want something with a seamless touch response rather than 4-levels of samples. I can turn to Pianoteq, but I get instruments I don't want, and features I don't want, for a bit too much money for just some relief from my hardware piano. It's not nimble and flexible enough as a product to me.
What may be playing on Modartt's mind about not releasing a mobile app is that what they have is something potentially unique in the studio for professional recording artists that has remained uncracked only due to its obscurity.

They could sell it for 50 USD (stage) on iPad, people interested in this kind of apps will expend the money. It is not a rare price for "pro" music apps.

Though I was never able to get a likable sound out of the Stage version.

Only the Standard version, which made the adjustments accessible and allows loading full user presets, allowed me finding a decent setting.

Otherwise I agree with you, we are here to play piano, not to become a piano technician.

There is very little you can tweak in the Stage version. Reverb, volume & eq pretty much the same as my FA-08.

Was thinking if there was any reason to put 30% discount for standard Pianoteq 5

Had a quick play with MS excel using data on PT's website about updates: proves nothing, but suggests it won't be long before Pianoteq 6 is released!

Measuring the time from the last change (eight months), conclusion is that version 5.81 is the last in version 5. Now we are guessing, fall or winter, maybe spring ?

Release dates of Pianoteq versions 3, 4, and 5 have been February, April, and May.

I suspect due to the increasing number of instruments within the pianoteq brand, it will progressively take longer and longer to prepare the next versions.
