Modartt has released Pianoteq 5, the latest version of their virtual piano instrument for Linux, Mac OS X & Windows
Here’s what they have to say about the new version:
We have devoted two years of research to developing and refining the award-winning Pianoteq physical model. Pianoteq 5 brings a new clarity and authenticity to the piano sound. Moreover, it offers no less than 9 new piano models, and sound recording is taken to a higher level of control with the addition of directional microphones, letting you choose from a range of well-known microphone brands.
