This is a small and versatile upright piano module with unique sound.

This piano module is neither a sample player, nor synthesized. It's a hybrid technology, that combines both methods. This resulted in a great module size reduction and light CPU usage. If you look for the updated technology and a professional grade Piano instrument VSTi, then TruePianos is for you. It is based on my recent research and developments in the area of virtual piano reproduction and offers a great playability. Unlike many other piano modules (like those gigabyte pianos), these module will never overload CPU. They will never stick notes, and never break the sound or click during live performances.

Hi there. Unable to make it run. I have tried to install it in a .vst path but de .dll extension is not recognized by my DAW (Reaper). Any help would be more than welcome. Thanks in advance.

First you need to find out if you have 32 or 64 bit. I'm running Windows 10 64 bit. Place the DLL file in your Reaper/Plugins/FX folder. Start Reaper, insert virtual instrument on new track and you should see 4Front Piano Module in the list. Works and sounds great.

This sounds good but the tuning is slightly sharp. Ears say so and check with ReaTune in Reaper confirms. Can it be adjusted?

It would be a bit of a hassle but couldn't you export the midi as an audio file and then transpose it up or down however many tones you like?

I'm amazed at how good this sounds. For a small free VST that uses very little CPU it sounds surprisingly like a real piano. Highly recommend!

I love this VST. I have used it for basically every piano part I've done and no other piano I tried after is as good.

I love it! It sounds very realistic in its simplicity. I use it with LMMS/Vestige in Linux and it's very stable and the CPU usage incredibly low. If you need to reverberate or amplify the sound, you can easily do it with Audacity.

I went through most of the better rated piano VSTs here, trying to find one that would be resemble a sample I liked. And despite being minuscule in size, compared to the others, this one.. it just feels even better? Simple, reliable, and happens to match the sound I searched for almost perfectly. Love it so far, great work..

Hi this is a must have piano plugin, the sound is so full. But i have one question, is there a way to have the notes maintaned but the pedal go of after sometimes or even have just a little less sustain with the pedal because i find it a little too much?

Usually you would either press the sustain button on your MIDI keyboard, but you can use plugins as well.

Sounds like an older upright piano, which is great for blues and barrelhouse. I gave it a 5 out of 5, because it is reliable, and has low CPU usage. The following idiosyncrasies may bother some, but to me they are charming and useful: If you move the pitch bend wheel while a note(s) is held down, it stops the note(s). If you are using the piano with a damper pedal, the sound will never fully decay as long as the pedal is held. Put a paperweight on the pedal, and this plugin becomes a unique compositional tool. I call it, "the tone bucket."

This is slightly de-tuned upright like on The Beatles Lady Madonna or The Moody Blues Go Now. It's superb for pop or blues. Thank you very much! Very good in Psycle .

The tone is great BUT there is absolutely no change in timbre with regards to velocity. It simply makes the sound louder. Good only if you can hide it someone in the background and keep it from the spotlight. Alone it sounds childish but the tone is the redeeming quality.

This one actually works for me on Windows 7 with Psycle x86 (non 64-bit) v1.10.1. All the other piano VSTs here seem to crash. This one sounds good too, thank you 4Front.

I think it's very great for jazz style. I chose the plugin and as soon as I hit one note I knew I should be playing some blues. The responsiveness is so great and the sound (although not that useable for many other styles) sounds perfect. If you can create another piano for a more smooth, connected, soft sound with this kind of realistic sound, I'd download it the first minute it's out. Thanks

A unique but rich and very good sound for an unexpensive VST, but I'm going crazy: I don't understand why it doesn't runs with a small processor like AMD Sempron 2800+, for instance. But starting with an Intel Pentium 4 2,8 Ghz, no problems at all.
