I’ve been getting into piano a bit now, I just finished learning Moonlight sonata movement 1 which is slow and steady…
I hadn’t surveyed the state of piano software for a while now…so I found pianoteq is now on their 4th release and it’s actually pretty damn good
There’s no sampling involved at all, it’s all simulated (kinda analogous to amp modeling ). The best part is that I can actually run this plugin standalone
on a 4-year old laptop running ubuntu studio - they actually have linux native support which surprised me and it’s only a 20MB install.
I’m pretty pleased with it - they provide a demo that has some keys disabled, but it actually allows you to demo the thing.
