View Full Version : [xubuntu] Looking for piano synthesizers
December 20th, 2011, 11:38 PM
Are there any good piano synthesizers for linux, preferably one in a repository?

I don't know what you mean by "piano synthesizers", but you can use linuxsampler with free piano instruments.
But, you will need newer version of linuxsampler than from repositories.

Pianoteq (http://www.pianoteq.com/) is good, but not free. There's a downloadable demo.

There are some nice EPs in zynaddsubfx/yoshimi, and it's multi-timbral, so creating wonderful nuance is trivial. Pianoteq as mentioned,
is excellent, and a couple of grand pianos have been sampled
and made freeware. A good EQ and chorus fx can help some of the
smaller sampled pianos and piano soundfonts, if they will not be solo instruments subject to intense scrutiny. :)
FM8 from Native Instruments may have quite a few piano variants in it's presets.
The demo runs in no-limit 30 minute sessions.
The free version of IK Multimedia Sampletank might have a piano as well.

Fluidsynth / Qsynth and some good free piano soundfount is great, you can find them at http://www.hammersound.net/
