What makes Pianoteq superior to other virtual instruments is that the instruments are physically modelled and thus can simulate the playability and complex behaviour of real acoustic instruments. By omitting usage of samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that offered by other virtual instruments, perfect for use on any modern laptop.

Steinway & Sons have approved the sound and playability of the Pianoteq virtual instruments Steinway Model D and Steinway Model B, which have gained from the refined physical model. These magnificent virtual grand pianos will appeal to all musicians in search of the most famous piano sound signature.

Vivid: The piano creates the sound in real time while you are playing and takes into account all the complex factors that makes the piano a truly vivid instrument, such as the interaction between strings, the use of pedals, the cabinet resonance and the position of the hammers. It will feel like you have a real piano in front of you... as if you could just lean over and touch the strings!

Versatile: Pianoteq introduces new methods to adjust the piano sound to just the way you like it! Changes that until now could only be made by piano tuners are now possible directly from the interface. Within seconds you can adjust the sound to a particular type of music or playing style. The many choices can be saved as a customized setting which you can share with other Pianoteq users.

Expressive: All the detailed variations of the timbre are there, from the weakest pianissimo to the strongest fortissimo! What you express on your keyboard will also be what you actually hear. The sound of even the weakest pianissimo is absolutely pure without any audible quantization noise.

Everything is in the title.

Pianoteq’s K2 Warm preset for my ‘Butterflies’ project Jan 23, 2021 Own compositions, Pianos, Video I’ve been thinking about using different Pianoteq presets in my current ‘Butterflies’ project and the K2 Warm preset has some really beautiful qualities.

Before that, I want to say that this list is subjective and doesn't mean anything. Your list will differ from mine, you will dislike and like other instruments, and that's okay. I thought that it might be interesting to know which pianos are statistically more liked than others.
You might also like another instrument (harp, harpsichord, electric piano...), and that's okay too, don't forget to put it on your list.

With that out of the way, here is my list in order from most liked to most disliked:

I would also like to know which pianos are closer to the real ones.


For me at least, it seems like the Steinway B is close to a real Steinway B. On the other side, I don't feel like the Steinway D is close to a real Steinway D (maybe I am mistaken; I haven't had the chance to listen to one in person). Don't get me wrong though, it is a beautiful instrument.
The Ant. Petrof seems to be the most realistic (not close to the real one, although it might be the case).

The Blüthner is a tough one. I really like that one, especially the bass notes, but I don't like the middle ones. I think the Blüthner needs a refinement like the new instruments. This one is definitely number 1 on my wishlist though.

The YC5 is not my kind, the middle to high notes are strange I would say. This is kind of sad because the bass notes are great too.

Overall, Pianoteq is such a great experience. Every day, Pianoteq impresses me more than before.
