Are you saying that using an audio interface improved latency and sound better than Apple's Core Audio?

I was able to set latency on the Pianoteq 7.4 to 128....

How do you use a a Mac Mini, which has no monitor? Hook it up to a monitor? Why not just get a laptop? I got the laptop version instead as one less thing to bring to the gig.

Thanks.

Hi Guys

My Midi cord has finally arrived.

Testing out Pianoteq 7 with my Bechstein prelude...

Here is the clip of Bruce Hornsby recorded in one shot



Go easy on the criticism k
I've never been trained etc there aint much opportunity to learn professionally in Trinidad

Everyone sorta just plays by ear and are self taught.
And I still can't read music to save my life.

I still think the Bechstein is the best preset by far in Pianoteq. Least boxiness etc and has a beautiful character to it.

Cheers

I know a lot of folks don't like Pianoteq but gosh listen to that lingering endless piano sustain.. Sorry but the Sustain and behaviour of the piano in Pianoteq is as close to an acoustic I've ever experienced with a digital piano.

Coupled with the Korg D1 RH3 Action it feels amazing to play.

Also excuse my Thor like Endgame Beard lol laugh laugh .

We've been locked down for a while no barbers etc. lolll

Cheers guys

Nice playing, Mta88! thumb

I agree on the Bechstein. I think it is the nicest piano in Pianoteq.

Good luck to the Socca Warriors against Mexico tonight!

A great question if I might say so. Whatever your sound system arragements, you can alter the Pianoteq response to suit your ears.
So it's not the sound system you alter, but PTq.
You use the velocity curve to achieve this in the main. If some of the higher notes are down, you can tweak them up to suit..
I have a large music stand which deflects the sound away from me, and towards the rear. This prevents 'er indoors from complaining she can't hear the TV. It works, so I can play quite loudly.
Normally the sound would be less than ideal, but it now comes at me more naturally, indirectly like it might from an upright. It's a fun thing.
