30/06/2015: Modartt releases a Concert Harp for Pianoteq

The Concert Harp for Pianoteq, physically modelled after a Salvi concert grand harp, includes pedals to change the pitch of the strings when playing in diatonic mode. It also allows you to play pinch harmonics (flageolets) and glissando.

Since there are no damped strings during playing, the harp has a special magical sound which the Pianoteq physical modelling manages to capture with astonishing authenticity.

Hohner collection released

Modartt releases Hohner Collection for Pianoteq, authorized by Hohner.

The Clavinet D6, which Modartt released for Pianoteq in 2010, is now joined by two other members of the Hohner instrument family - the Electra-piano and the Pianet T. These electro-mechanical pianos have appeared in many hit records from the sixties and seventies including "She’s not there" by The Zombies, "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin and "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder.

The virtual copies for Pianoteq benefit from its physical modelling engine - the octave range is extended to seven octaves, a sustain pedal is added for the Pianet T and the Clavinet D6, and physical properties of the instruments can be modified.

The Hohner Collection, sold as an instrument pack, requires the latest update 5.2 of Pianoteq and is free for all Pianoteq customers with a licence of the Clavinet instrument pack.
