If you are in need for a good modelled piano, you could give Pianoteq a try; I used quite a lot in my recent piano tunes. Also, I have bought it at version 2.0 and I still get free updates now at 3.03.
The real news about it is that a Linux native VST (edit: it’s not VST, it’s standalone executable, to be linked to Renoise thorugh JACK) version has just been released, so having the penguin is no more an excuse!
Cool, I’ll try it out! Thanks for link
thanks for the link.
a question though : the trial version doesn’t seem to include the vst, does it ?
I’ve downloaded it and the standalone runs fine and sounds really good, but I can’t find a file (.so) that i could put into my vst directory so that I could use it in renoise.
is it included in the full version ?
You probably have to link it through Jack…
On linux they are not really used to load plugins from within applications.
yes, you have to use the JACK backend. I thought a VST version was available, but in fact it’s not. However, I have asked on the forum if there are any plans for a VST release.
please let us know if there are any news about a vst release
Pianoteq author has replied; probably a VST version will be released soon.
