Everyone is pianoteq, pianoteq and again pianoteq but maybe somewhere there is hidden gem which is equaly good? Has anyone tested for example Arturia piano V?

From day to day I was trying to love this piano but nothing, I don`t like it at least at the moment. For me Pianoteq is simply above.

Piano V2 is a lot better than v1, but I still prefer Pianoteq. I couldn't get the dynamics or velocity curve to sound right with my casio which didn't help. I heard some of the roland digitals have modelled sound too?

Yeah since about 3 years Roland has fully modelled pianos which have really good sound IMO. I'm interested in other pianos though. Are there only those 3? (Roland/Pianoteq/Arturia)

There’s also the Physis piano. If you will allow a very militant hate speech for a moment, I find a similar synthetic quality persistent in all of them that’s not quite to my liking.

Regarding PT, me too. Which is why I'm going to try this Arturia demo. Fingers crossed.

I just looked at True Pianos. I tried that years ago. I did not like it. But I'll try the new version, too.

I needed something to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon. smile

I just listened to the TruePianos demos; not at all convincing to me. I'm no fan of Pianoteq, but it seems way ahead of that.

Well I'm not sure there has been much recent updating of TruePianos, although they do state it is compatible with Windows 10.

The manual is dated 2010 "v1.9.0 / 22.12.2010" and latest version is 1.9.5

Is it fair to assume that V3 will be better than V2?

No, it'll be worse. That's the way improvements work--they get ever crappier until they actually produce no sound at all. Completely silent, no matter how frantically you bash the keys.

TruePianos has not been updated as been noted. I find it sits good in a mix. Not my choice for solo piano though.


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.

BTW I don't believe there's such a thing as a "momentary hate speech", as speeches tend to be longer. I suppose "hate sentence" would suffice, but not sure that the Establishment would try to use the term...bit too ridiculous, even for the sheeple. eek

Good perception! But it might be a perception on ageing, not DP manufacturing. . . . sorry to be the first to say this . . . frown But they tell me Specsavers are very helpful.

Unlike most folks here, I'm not a Pianoteq fan, I don't like the tone of the resonance it comes with.

Arturia's Piano V on the other hand is right up at the top for me, surprisingly, since it's modeled and yet has a beautiful tone as if it were a sample library. Flexibility and beautiful tone at once is a rare combination.

Weird. I tried Arturia and went back to PianoTeq smile
It must really depend on what you are about to play.
Right now I use PianoTeq and The Grandeur.

Grandeur? Is that a piano within Pianoteq? BTW I've liked Blutner most from Pianoteq.

No, it's a sampled piano from native instruments.
