Pianoteq 8 Standard Edition


The Best There Is

I’ve used over 30 piano plugins over the years and Pianoteq 8 is my absolute favorite. It’s lightweight, sounds massive, and gives you ultimate tweaking control at your fingertips.



Ultimate Control

Refine existing piano models but also to craft entirely new and personalized piano sounds. This versatility is a key advantage of a truly modeled piano, as it unlocks boundless creative possibilities for musicians. Whether it’s tweaking hammer hardness, fine-tuning string tension, or shaping reverb, resonance, and timbre, users have the freedom to tailor every aspect of their instruments. With Pianoteq 8, musicians can build their music using instruments that are as distinctive and individual as the compositions themselves.
