Thank you all for informations smile Gonna sign up for newsletter then, also 30 euro for upgrade is not that bad. Still, I initially thought that once you buy Pianoteq you get all the future versions, oh well.

When the v7 will arrive, it will cost 29€ to upgrade an older version.

If a new version comes out within a year of your purchase, I'm pretty sure that the upgrade is free.

Pianoteq's website is exceptionally clear-- after you buy Pianoteq, you get free updates to the next version of what you bought for one year. After that, you would pay $30 for a major version upgrade. I bought v5, and within a year v6 came out. It was automatically and immediately available to me in the download area. I've continued to upgrade for free up to v6.5. When v7 comes out, I will need to pay $30 to upgrade, which I almost certainly will do. When this occurs, I will also be eligible for any updates to instruments I own in v7, and I will continue to get incremental upgrades through all of v7 for no additional cost.

I have found Pianoteq to be responsive to support requests, helpful in their forums, and fair and reasonable regarding their pricing decisions. More than I can say for nearly any other company, I must say. Their only "fault" is not heeding my continued requests to make Pianoteq available on iOS.

I use my Pianoteq on both Mac and PC since each purchase licenses 3 devices. I use the Windows 10 when I am playing live. I use the Mac version to convert my MIDI recordings.

I connect it via Firefox. It effectively d/ls Pianoteq updates without fuss. But it won'r play 'em; I have to load them onto a memory stick and load it back from that.

To my ears Cybergenes performance of the actual piece and my subsequent enjoyment of the piece is much greater with the Pianoteq modeled samples then with the other mic’d samples. He had better control, sensitivity, and articulation when he played with pianoteq. The Garritan and NX1 when listening strictly to the melody were too notey to the point that I had a harder time discerning which note was accented and which ones weren’t. This is what I find when I switch for example between Ravenscroft and Pianoteq 6. Pianoteq just allows for more controllable expression compared to mic’d samples and it’s easy to discern when I listen to recordings such as these. I think good piano playing is all about refined control and in the digital world if a program or product gets you closer to the control you experience in the acoustic world it’s a good product to invest in.
