Finally another software company, and a big one, launches a modeled piano

https://www.arturia.com/piano-v/overview

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZfQce8dqP4

Various models included for 199 USD. I am going to demo later in the day and see how it compares to pianoteq.

Arturia is a company with agressive sales so I expect that within a year they will have one 50%off. But given Pianoteq Standard price the 199 USD seem great for the time being if it sounds as good.

I also hope this product puts presure on Pianoteq development and price.

I was excited for about 45 seconds until I heard what they had to share as audio/video demo. Just my opinion, but it sounds terrible - or at least what they have prepared for us to determine if we like it or not is very weak. Again, just opinion. So no worries if you disagree. Advancements in modeling technology are more than welcome. So far Pianoteq, the Roland V-Piano, and Physis are about it. I don't think they have much to worry about from Arturia.

I can't even judge the product from those clips. The music and playing is so terrible, and the settings have too many effects applied. I don't think it will sound that bad when it's set up to play realistically. I'm just baffled that they haven't hired a professional pianist to play for them, and that they haven't used more realistic settings. Who wants a piano swallowed up by reverb and delay? Any piano can do that with effects. They are shooting themselves in the foot with such a poor promotional effort.

I played around with demo. It's not ready for prime time. I couldn't get an acceptable latency with either sound card. No problems with Pianoteq.

The models sound interesting. If they could fix the audio settings. I would give the demo another try.

Best wishes to Arturia and for their efforts.

I'm very happy with Pianoteq and impressed with its Steinway Model B piano.

I really like some of the sounds, even though it's not as authentic as Pianoteq.

I had high hopes, but after playing the demo it is quite far away from being realistic and on par with pianotec, I would say I wouldn't get it even for 50 USD.

Unfortunately I doubt arturia will invest in improvement, they have not done so with their other emulations in which they are now behind other developers.

Hope another company, maybe NI, takes on the challenge of modeled piano, I really feel the field needs competition.

I wish there would be more alternatives to pianoteq,
this is still not ready version, I don't know why they released this product, its not even ready for qa.

maybe next version would be better, but for now, its not there. not yet.

I don't think their major goal is to sell it individually. Nobody is going to jump at it for $199.
But the V Collection with total 17 products for $399 (for now) would be a nice deal for someone who want all of their synths.

B-3 is interesting, but the sample sound on the site does not show anything good at all.
(Maybe that's why they have downloadable demo).

From website:
Platform specifications

Windows: Win 7+ PC: 4 GB RAM; 2 GHz CPU.
2GB free hard disk space
Apple: 10.8+: 4 GB RAM; 2 GHz CPU.
2GB free hard disk space

They don't support GNU/Linux (the reason that made me to choose Pianoteq) and I don't get why a modelled piano would need 2Gb of hard disk space.

Must need the space for juggling around files, writing to disk and such. Can't really understand that a computer with only 2 gigs of free disk space, not to mention less, can function for anything at all.

That demo has glimpses of what a modeled piano could be. All those altered sounding ones are just wasting my time.

I hope someone figures it out. It would be so nice to play an instrument rather than a playback machine.
