Win an advanced version of Pianoteq Pro worth nearly £500!

17 September 2013

Modartt’s Pianoteq is a forward-thinking virtual piano that offers a practical solution for discerning and tech-savvy pianist-composers. IP has teamed up with Modartt to offer one lucky reader the advanced version of the software – Pianoteq Pro – PLUS the piano add-ons: U4 upright, Blüthner Model 1 and YC5 Rock Piano, worth nearly £500.

According to its makers Modartt, Pianoteq is the world’s first ‘fourth generation’ piano, after the acoustic, electro-acoustic pianos and present-day sampled instruments where each note has been separately pre-recorded at different dynamic levels. Pianoteq relies on physical modelling with real time response – but at the same time, the entire package is only 20MB in size, making it economical in terms of space. You can use Pianoteq on any laptop and connect it to your MIDI compatible piano keyboard.

There’s the freedom to adjust multiple setting – from the tuning, shape of the soundboard, hammer hardness and damper control to the position of the lid and even the mic placement – as well as the facility to edit the parameters of each individual note, allowing for almost limitless variation.

To be in with a chance of winning the software, answer the following question:

In what year was Pianoteq first released?

Answers should be sent via email to competitions@rhinegold.co.uk with ‘Pianoteq giveaway’ in the subject line.

The competition closes 28 November. Good luck!
