Modartt releases Hohner Pianet N for Pianoteq
Modartt adds a Pianet N model to its Hohner Collection for Pianoteq.
The (original) electro-mechanical piano Pianet N appeared in 1965 and quickly gained popularity among many pop and rock groups at the time due to its distinctive voice that allowed it to cut through in a mix, while its size and weight appealed to touring musicians. Its sound is described as "complex and warm, with bass notes that growl and purr coupled and a bright percussive treble".
This virtual rendition benefits from Pianoteq's physical modelling engine, with the octave range extended to seven octaves. A sustain pedal was also added, and the physical properties of the instruments can be modified.
Besides the Pianet N, the latest version 5.4 of Pianoteq introduces a neat “Fuzz” effect for achieving sharp/squeaky distortion, simulating the sound of a damaged guitar amplifier.
The Hohner Pianet N is part of the Hohner Collection instrument pack, which is sold 49€/$59 and requires the latest 5.4 version of Pianoteq.
The instrument is available for evaluation in the free trial version of Pianoteq which can be downloaded from the www.pianoteq.com website.
