manstud's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Pianoteq 4.5 or Nord Stage 2?"
However, taking the time to compare two equal volumes (NS2 Steinway D Close Pianoteq against D4 Jazz AB without reverb), I finally looked for Pianoteq.
I still tried to get "closer" to the NS2 several levels being used on some concerts practicing Yamaha C3/C7 or Steinway Model D, with quite reactive dampers, I particularly like the ability to disable the long release of NS2, which I think brings a lot of realism and sound game (others say the same thing "with" !).
Realism that I could find on Pianoteq, including through Damper settings and positioning of microphones. And there is the great advantage of the latter, since everything is adjustable, the length of the string to the position of striking point and volume of hammers, as the resonance of the soundboard, much better on the plugin.
In short, once all the settings adjusted to my way, I get a sound quality and playability well above the Pianoteq, despite the recognized qualities of excellent NS2.
To complete the proof by experience no comparison between the two in studio version: The registered last year on a project NS2 Soul sounds nonetheless digital, where Pianoteq recently placed on the soundtrack of a short film is completely illusion. Although the two musical contexts are different (against Soul jazz / classical), but to choose, especially when it comes to marry a virtual piano with real acoustic elements, the Pianoteq is needed undoubtedly. As for the marriage with a more electronic environment, too, brings the Pianoteq own living next to the "real" instruments.
Note that I only compare here the sound, the choice of a keyboard "all in one" or "master keyboard + computer" does not come into consideration, convenience fit for the purposes of course depends on the individual.
If I have not mentioned here that the model D4, U4, recently acquired, is also phenomenal as upright piano. Electric pianos (especially R2, for my taste) are also illusion, like clavinets, excellent.
In short, less than 50 MB for all these qualities that each update continues to approach perfection, what can I say except that Modartt is unbeatable on his land.

PianoLover's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent - a must have for pianists -"
Remember the Ivory II, QLP ... ect
The simulation is based on partial piano notes and more.
Finally a true simulation of overtones and soundboard.
More in version 4, a Steinway model finally realistic.
+ Possibility to place the microphones themselves.
(I use it and I only delete gigabytes of samples on my disk.
I only kept the samples very specific EW Steinway B Olivier Truan
I uplifting for me in Kontakt.)
Pianoteq: Finally an approach to the piano as an instrument with a sound version 4 which is maturing.
In your BC, qq either version worth it
Congratulations to Modartt!!

The same thing better, the effects section added useful and quality, making for complete stand alone for the CP80.
Nothing has almost nothing to remove repeat, nice surprise for automatic recording.

With my VSL samples, I do not like the piano, nien special edition, nor maousse piano. This one is light at 20 MB, but sounds great.
