So Moddart just released version 5 which was a free upgrade for me - yipeee
Definitely an improvement for me.
The defaults are brighter - like there’s more definition in the mid/high range - on 4.5 I had to increase the EQ on the mid/highs and adjust the velocity curve to make it a bit brighter.
In v5 the level of brightness is what I prefer - and it doesn’t sound like just EQ either…
The reverb presets sound like they were updated - they are a bit more natural now.
I was expecting just a subtle improvement but was nicely surprised.
It now sounds more like a nice sampled library (i.e. more authentic) except with all the dynamics and reaction to your playing characteristics that led me to get pianoTeq in the first place.
