ol Bluthner still sounds richest to me.

Sure now you tell me after I already made my selections wink


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

Bluthner was my favourite too. Until I bought Noire.

Can pianoteq 7 be loaded on an external drive and work? If so, is there a workstation that needs to be loaded on the PC? Or can everything be loaded on an external drive?

Pianoteq requires hardly any disk space (30 MB?) so that might not be necessary.

I agree.

However, if you want it on an external drive .... you may wish to install it on that drive initially so Pianoteq has everything it needs on that drive.

I'm thinking for ease of transferring from laptop to laptop once I upgrade my PC. Unless there is an easier way to do the transfer.

Do you know if it will run without hiccups on an external drive (i.e., without latency, pops, clicks, etc.)?

Why bother transferring ?

Just download Pianoteq 7 from Modartt website ?

No I don't.

However, Pianoteq seems to run on almost anything without issues.

So, unless you have a particularly poor external drive ... it should be fine.


If you want a reliable answer .... ask it at modartt website.

Thanks, I didn't know one could download it multiple times after purchase.

Downloading isn't the issue... Activating it after you install it may be an issue depending on how many activations you have used.

Well, considering he didn't know he could download it multiple times .....

He probably has not utilized any additional activations at this point.

So, is there any benefit to downloading to an external drive? I really only wanted to protect against losing it if I change laptops.

Yes, you can download it as many times as you want. And you can have it working on up to three different devices/PCs at once. You need to activate it on a device before you can use it (and it is NOT the same installer as the demo version).

I don't think what you want (i.e. using the external HD to move from one device to the other) will work. As pointed by someone above, the amount of HD (or SSD) space required is not high, though it is not just 30MB, it is actually a few hundreds MB (268MB for Pianoteq 6.6 in this laptop I am using now).


When you update your PC, you may deactivate Pteq for that PC so that you regain that activation slot, but be careful to not do it for a PC you are using Pteq on: once inactivated, you cannot activate it on the same PC.

No there is not.

You can just download it to whichever laptop you wish to have it on.

If you continue to move it to different laptops it can get complicated with activating/deactivating computers but you can freely download it between 3 different computers with no issues at all.

If you think you may need more options than that it would be best to contact Modartt website to discuss with them.

Thank you to all who replied. This has been helpful to me. It is nice that there is no dongle requirement.

Cool, so now he knows both. He's ahead of the game.

Heads up, pianomanchuck posted a comparison of the new Steinways for pianoteq 7. Sounds pretty amazing.

I hate to admit it I’ve basically abandoned garritan and ravens Croft for the time being

Pianoteq snuck up on me and seduced me lol.
With this latest edition though it’s really lovely
Playability is top notch. the response to touch is really amazing, feels like an acoustic.
I’m currently a k240 ii studio monitor headphones and a korg d1 stage piano.



Lovely reviews so far

Will post a few recordings soon as I get the usb dongle for my Mac, currently using a 8 year old laptop lol.
Covid hit and the entire country is out of Mac dongles frown
What’s surprises me though is how the old hp works surprisingly well with pianoteq at low latency settings .

Good job to the folks at pianoteq for reaching this far though.

Gone are the days when u needed to possess a significant amount of wealth to have a digital that plays like an acoustic .

I would agree. PT 7 has grabbed me. I still use the Yamaha voices (Studio and Jazz grands are my go-to when doing this) but there's so much to explore in PT. I have all voices sounding good and suspect they could be better still. But my expected replacement Netbook hasn't arrived; the one I type on now has to multi-task.
Netbooks must be female.

Quik question: I bought my code for pianoteq pro, but I'm not 100% certain as to which pianos I want. Do I have to enter all 4 when I enter my code?
Or can I get two (of the four paid for) packs and retain a credit so I can log in later and download the others?

(I bought the bluthner pack separately, and I would like to get the Bechstein amd Steingraber. I think I'd also like the petrof (less certainty there....) and for my last one, not sure which Steinway....)......
