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.
This is going to sound very stupid.
Iâ€™m heavily into synths as well as piano, and own a load of various synth software, including the Arturia V Collection.
Since owning it, Iâ€™ve been playing with 3 synths mainly. I never gave the piano a seconds thought, presuming it was a software version of a DP from the same era as the synths. Never realised it was modelled.
Will be giving it a try tomorrow
