What is Piano V2?




Piano V2 is the second version of Arturia's Piano V, which was released in 2016. Piano V is part of Arturia's V Collection, a bundle of software instruments that emulate classic keyboards and synthesizers. Piano V2 is an update that adds four new piano models, a new studio mode, and various improvements and fixes.


Piano V2 uses physical modeling to simulate the sound and behavior of a real piano. Physical modeling is a technique that uses mathematical equations to describe how an object behaves in response to physical forces, such as vibrations, resonances, and damping. By using physical modeling, Piano V2 can recreate not only the sound of the piano strings, but also the sound of the hammers, pedals, keys, and cabinet. Physical modeling also allows for more realistic and expressive playing, as the sound responds to the velocity, pressure, and position of the keys.


Piano V2 features 12 piano models, each with its own character and tone. The models are:



  • American Grand: A warm, balanced sound with plenty of projection, ideal for classical performance clarity.



  • German Grand: A bright, rich sound with a wide dynamic range, suitable for various genres and styles.



  • Japanese Grand: A clear, crisp sound with a strong attack and sustain, perfect for pop and rock music.



  • Pop Grand: A modern sound with enhanced harmonics and presence, designed for contemporary music production.



  • Classical Upright: A vintage sound with a mellow tone and a soft touch, reminiscent of old recordings and saloons.



  • Jazz Upright: A lively sound with a punchy bass and a bright treble, ideal for jazz and blues music.



  • Pop Upright: A versatile sound with a balanced tone and a solid feel, suitable for various genres and styles.



  • Piano-bar Upright: A cozy sound with a warm tone and a gentle touch, perfect for intimate settings and ballads.



  • Plucked Grand: An experimental sound with a metallic timbre and a percussive attack, inspired by prepared pianos and harpsichords.



  • Tack Upright: An eccentric sound with a distorted tone and a noisy touch, influenced by honky-tonk pianos and lo-fi effects.



  • Glass Grand: A futuristic sound with a crystalline timbre and a resonant sustain, created by replacing the strings with glass rods.



  • Metal Grand: A radical sound with a harsh timbre and a distorted sustain, created by replacing the strings with metal wires.




Piano V2 also features a studio mode, where you can customize your piano sound in various ways. You can adjust the tuning, voicing, hammer hardness, string length, sympathetic resonance, pedal noise, key noise, mechanical noise, and more. You can also choose from different microphone positions and types, such as close, player, side, room, ambient, ribbon, condenser, dynamic, etc. You can also apply different effects to your piano sound, such as reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, phaser , compressor , EQ , etc. You can also mix your piano sound with other instruments or sounds from Arturia's Analog Lab or your own DAW.
