Pianoteq 7 Stage is a great entry level and budget friendly product for musicians who do not need to modify the existing sounds in the software a tremendous amount. In Pianoteq Stage 7 you get all the same instruments, sounds and playability as you do in Pianoteq Standard and Pianoteq PRO. When your register your product you will get a chance to you choose two instrument packs. By the way it’s really easy to upgrade from Stage to the Standard or PRO version if your needs change.
Why pick Pianoteq over other VST’s? It’s the physical modeling of the instruments. Because it’s not sampled you can simulate the actual playability of Steinway, Grotrian or other incredible pianos. Also again because it’s not sampled but actual recorded physical playing, the file size is really small and won’t take up a ton of drive space. With the amazing sound of the Steinway Model D Spirio|r. which was recorded at the Steinway Hall in New York, you can “play” this new flagship instrument even if you don’t have $200k just laying around! Lastly you can use any Pianoteq product as stand alone software. Of course we have Pianoteq Standard 7 too!

What’s in Stage 7?
Among others, it also offers the very first physical model of Steinway’s groundbreaking new flagship instrument: the Model D Spirio|r. Based on recordings from the renowned Steinway Hall in New York, it provides the famous Steinway concert piano sound with superb musical expression.
Moreover, all piano models in Pianoteq have been refined by using a new string/soundboard modelling (double polarisation), bringing longer and more complex tones with a three-dimensional character.
Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac). It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and will even run on some ARM-based boards such as the Raspberry Pi. It can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in in VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.
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. Because there are no samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that required by other virtual instruments, making Pianoteq perfect for any modern laptop.
We have collaborated with the best piano manufacturers in the world, Steinway & Sons, Steingraeber, Bechstein, Blüthner, Grotrian and Petrof, who all have approved the sound and playability of their physically modelled concert grand pianos available in Pianoteq.
This rich and diverse collection of virtual grand pianos will appeal to all musicians in search of the most famous piano sound signatures.

What’s new in version 7
The instruments XyloHarp, VibraDrum or GlockenTines certainly do not exist. These are however three of the many instruments you can create with the acoustic Morphing introduced in Pianoteq 7 (Standard/PRO). This innovative technology handles the morphing at the physical modelling level, providing stunning acoustic authenticity to instruments that never existed.
On popular demand, Modartt adds a new layering feature in Pianoteq 7 (Standard/PRO) allowing to mix several instruments, e.g. playing Bass Marimba in the low range, Xylophone in the upper range and mixing both together in the middle range. The difference between Morphing and Layering is that in the latter the two sounds are mixed together, whereas in Morphing the instrument Physics itself is being morphed.
Refined physical model
Modartt introduces a new refinement in its physical model: the double polarization. It consists in modelling string vibrations that can take any direction, e.g. parallel or perpendicular to the soundboard. The new physical model allows more complex tones to be produced, and as observed by a pianist, the sound becomes “three-dimensional”. It also allows longer sustain, particularly in the bass range, with notes lasting up to a couple of minutes, just like on a real acoustic piano. All pianos in Pianoteq 7 are constructed and revoiced using this new physical model.
New grand piano modelled after a New York Steinway Model D
In collaboration with Steinway & Sons, Modartt has recorded a beautiful new Model D Concert Grand at the famous New York Steinway Hall. The reference piano was the very first produced of Steinway’s groundbreaking new flagship instrument — the Model D Spirio|r, and has been used by some of the most famous pianists in the world today. The new New York Steinway Model D for Pianoteq accompanies the existing Hamburg Steinway D and provides the famous Steinway concert piano sound with superb musical expression.
