What do you call that thing people use to make their piano sound something else when uploaded online?

For example, I hear of people using their Casios but would say "I use Steinway" something sound, to mimic that sound.

What's that tool/software called and what are the best ones?


Yamaha P-515

A Virtual Piano Software, a Virtual Piano, a Piano VST...

Connect your digital piano to your computer using a USB cable or a separate MIDI interface, open the virtual piano software, configure the software to listen to your digital piano MIDI signals, configure the audio output (preferrably using ASIO), and play/record.

This is the simplest way. But there are other more "advanced" ways of using it (inside a DAW for example).

Yes, yes. But it's not that simple...

There are a lot of them, you can search here in the forums. But some of the best rated are Pianoteq, Garritan CFX (which I use) and VI Labs Ravenscroft 275.


Yamaha JX113; Roland FP-80 & FP-7F; Garritan CFX; Steinberg UR22mkII; Sennheiser HD 579 & HD 569; Zoom H5.

Oh. Well I got confused and was going to rule out a VST because he said "online" when practically all VSTs are downloaded.


Finally bought the P515
