Just saw that PianoTeq has a sale, 30% off for standard version as well as for upgrades from stage to standard.
It's that time of the year again to regret a prior purchase lol (or to rejoice if you waited).

On a side note, I get bombarded with sales and promotions from the platforms where I bought a piano VST from in the past. Every week there's a special sale that's ONLY FOR TWO DAYS or something like that. Opposed to that, PianoTeq has been fairly subtle with their sales as far as I can tell,

It's a great opportunity. Thanks, Grazilerimba.

I'm not using Pianoteq frequently. My purchase of it was kind of support: You know, you pay for a product to support a developer. Certainly, owning keeps you in touch with all news on a particular software. Sometimes I start it, play a little and then go back to my sampled pianos. But I have to say that the last update 6.2.2 - was a significant improvement! And recently released Steingraeber E-272, in my opinion, is the best to date instrument in Pianoteq family.

Also sometimes I see some examples on "How to cook Pianoteq properly". After such examples, I feel bad: As something wrong with my hands and ears. smile

Here is the example of how great Pianoteq can sound. In such moments I seriously consider upgrading to "Standard"

Great performance and Great sound.

Note that video was posted on November 2017, so it's not even the latest build of Pianoteq 6 - Stage.

Thank you Max_Forte and Grazilerimba,

I completely agree with your assessments and have especially enjoyed the latest v6.2 release of PianoTeq featuring the Steingraeber & Sohne E-272 instrument; their best yet! I also enjoyed the provided Rachmaninoff Prelude in Gm Op.23, No.5 recording... some really nice playing and a great demo of PianoTeq! I think this discounted upgrade may be too good to pass up...

I'm a new user of PianoTeq Stage in concert with my Mason & Hamlin BB Acoustic Piano w/ WNG Action. I purchased PianoTeq Stage v6.2 last month to supplement the sound capability of the installed QuietTime ProRecord MIDI Optical Sensing System for my night-time practicing (we have young children). After completing a proper ProRecord calibration, the following Velocity Preset provides a satisfactory experience for classical pianists, especially when using the PianoTeq's Steingraeber & Sohne E-272 Prelude, Steinway Concert D Prelude, Grotrian Concert Royal Prelude, Bluthner Model One Prelude, and K2 Semi-Concert Prelude Acoustic Piano Presets:

M&H BB w/ WNG - ProRecord Velocity Map used for PianoTeq v6.2: “Fast" Keyboard at pp, “Slow" Keyboard at ff:
Velocity = [0, 1, 10, 25, 35, 46, 60, 70, 85, 107, 127; 0, 0, 5, 15, 25, 38, 60, 80, 105, 127, 127]

[Linked Image]

I recently produced an example set of ProRecord-PianoTeq Demo Sound Recordings using this Velocity Preset, which enables comparison of five of PianoTeq's v6.2.2 Virtual Instruments. The piece selected requires a very delicate touch and is a true test of the action and tone of world-class analog instruments, digital hybrids and digital instruments.

Upgraded from Pianoteq Stage to "Standard". thumb

For all those who as me before wasn't impressed by Pianoteq's sound: Standard version allows you to deeply tweak the sound You can even change the microphone positions and choose between different emulations of them.

Glad I pulled my trigger and finally upgraded. smile

Thank you Max! I also couldn't resist and upgraded from PianoTeq Stage to PianoTeq Standard. Playability of PianoTeq VSTis has always been one of its strengths. And let me also add that the new Steingraeber & Sohne E-272 Modeled VSTi is one of my personal favorites to play of any sampled or hybrid sampled/model VSTi. But I agree with you that the Standard version's increased ability to "tweak the sound and move the microphone positions" vs. Stage allows one to really use the application to its full potential - via emulation of unique acoustic performance settings with great ease, and also allows for direct comparison to the latest top of the line sampled instruments.
