I don't reckon they're that tweakable. The variations between different pianos in Pianoteq are subtle and reflect the character of the original instrument, I fondly like to think.
Roland used to offer some weird imaginary models such as “all triple silver strings”, etc but that was the V-Piano. Not sure how much of that tweakability has been reused in the new fully modeled pianos. In any case neither Roland nor Pianoteq are my cup of tea 😉

Skyscrapersax, it is Pianoteq, not Pianotec.

If it can be easily implemented, then do it my friend, and give us a quote. I already have an iPad.

Pianotec differs from Pianoteq. Pianotec can be easily implemented and runs on iPad (Mini in this case).

Could you provide a link. Pianotec is a German acoustic piano shop.

http://www.pianotec.eu/klaviere/verkauf-klaviere/

On the other hand, the virtual piano by Modartt is named Pianoteq whether it runs on Windows, MacOS or Linux.

Weight tells you nothing about how easily (or how cheaply) something can be done.

@anotherscott : I agree. A little program which heavily use CPU specific instruction can be hard to port on an other CPU, and it is easy to develop for a powerful CPU. Optimizing for a lower CPU can be difficult.

Note : I have tried without success Pianoteq on an eeePC (Intel Atom based little laptop).

Note : there exists an ARM version of Pianoteq and ARM CPU are known to use few electric power.

Think I could back him up, m'lud. With all due respect to your learned self,. a Pianoteq Bluthner will run, at 256 polyphonic, playing Pink's "Take me Home" full whack on a little Ideapad. All without breaking wind.

All of this is sort of moot as Pianoteq is close to releasing Pianoteq for iPad etc.
Have the modeled piano of your choice on your phone wink


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

For me, typo, and didn't catch in the small window to fix... PianoTEC? on iPad? Huh? I'll look that one up. As to running PianoTEQ on my $100 tablet, I just put it on USB and plugged it in. Apparently, the little tablet had enough juice for the gig.
