I downloaded the latest update last week. It sounds nice - I noticed some subtle but noticeable improvements in the timbre of the Steinway and Petrof models I usually play. Didn't try out any of the others.

Interestingly, the two qualities the video reviewer mentions as having noticed improvement - "presence" and "warmth" - are still the two areas where I find Pianoteq falls the most short. For all the technical accuracy and easy of playability, I still detect a strange hollowness to the sound - almost like something at the core of each note is missing.

I notice it immediately when I switch back to a good sampled instrument - when I hit the keys, it suddenly feels like I'm connecting with something more tangible and present.

I'm a fan of Pianoteq overall, though, and plan to keep up with it. The historical instruments alone make it more than worth the investment for me, and if they can ever figure out how to simulate that last degree of solidity and presence w/ the modern grands, it could be the best all-in-one product out there.

Most of default PTQ presets use internal PTQ limiter. And this limiter have - 12 dB of threshold. And this limiter sound hollowness and to fast/quickly. Most Sampled piano doesn't use this limiter this way.

So i've modified for my personal use, a presets calibrated near EBU R-128 loudness with sometimes FFF :
