Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument that can simulate many instruments (Pianos, Electric Pianos, Harpsichords, Vibraphones, Guitar, Steeldrums and more) thanks to physical modelling. This means that Pianoteq is not playing recorded sounds, it is computing them by applying the equations of physics: it calculates how the strings vibrate, how the wood soundboard radiates the sound.
This is what makes Pianoteq superior to other virtual instruments, the instruments being physically modelled, Pianoteq can simulate the playability and complex behaviour of real acoustic instruments. Because there are no samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that required by other virtual instruments, making Pianoteq perfect for your iOS device.
Many brands have officially authorised Pianoteq: Steinway, C.Bechstein, Petrof, Steingraeber, Grotrian, Blüthner, Hohner have all reviewed the faithfulness of Pianoteq.
