So… The Arturia V7 collection is 1/2 off right now… puts it right at the price of pianoteq6, which I’ve been demoing for a couple weeks.
I’m struggling to pick, bc that’s a good deal… but I love the feel when playing with pianoteq. But I already have Komplete 10 ultimate - which has both some good sampled pianos and a bunch of modern synths. It’s vintage offerings are pretty weak IMHO.
I’ve played around with the Arturia piano, and if you dig you can find some decent presets, but it lacks the immediacy of pianoteq… and at home, I play mostly piano.
Any thoughts from heavy users of either? How is Arturia CPU use? My computer is a modest 8th gen i5u laptop with just 8 gigs of RAM.
Use cases for me span from cover bands to big bands to small jazz groups to solo piano, and the occasional church group… when we aren’t in quarantine .
In another few days, the sale will be over, then my choice will be made for me
