The D4, a universal grand piano

This page introduces the D4 grand piano: listen to different styles of music, compare the sound of several presets or discover through our workshops how to come close to a given target sound. All the presets used in these audio demos are built on the same D4 Grand Piano model. This means that these presets are created entirely by modifying the parameters available in the Pianoteq PRO interface. We recommend that you listen to the demos at a volume similar to what you hear when standing next to an acoustic piano.


Listen to Pianoteq D4 Grand Piano in action in various musical styles, from classical and jazz to pop music. Listen also to the beautiful sound characteristics emphasized by focusing on details of the Kreisleriana pieces from Schumann. Some more exotic sounds are presented at the end. All audio examples were recorded with a selection of D4 presets using their default settings and without any post processing, except for the jazz duo and trio.
