Claude Debussy once said: "Piano music should only be written for the Bechstein". Franz Liszt, Edvard Grieg, Alexander Scriabin, Maurice Ravel and Béla Bartók also composed on Bechstein pianos. Bechstein pianos are also featured in legendary recordings by The Beatles, Queen, Bob Dylan, and Elton John.

System Requirements
Requires Pianoteq 6.4 or Higher

  • Mac OS X 10.7 or later, Windows 7 or later, Linux (x86 and ARM)
  • Audio Units / VST / AAX / NKS compatible

Pianoteq 6 facilitates your workflow by adding compatibility with the VST3 format and the ARM architecture (Linux version only, for example on Raspberry Pi 3 boards). VST3 is the latest plug-in platform developed by Steinberg, and is supported by many audio hosts. Compatibility with the ARM architecture means that Pianoteq 6 can be used with RISC based CPU's used in smaller Linux based consumer electronic devices. Furthermore, since Pianoteq 6.1, the NKS (Native Kontrol Standard) extended plug-in format from Native Instruments is supported.
