Pianoteq already leads the way in acoustic piano modeling and now with Version 6.1 they have taken it step further by introducing a new spatialisation technique which brings more air and presence to the instruments, increasing realism. Minor re-voicing has also been done on some instruments/presets.
Furthermore, new features are introduced along with support for the NKS (Native Kontrol Standard) extended plug-in format from Native Instruments.
Listen to a comparison between 6.0 and 6.1 here:

I have been using Pianoteq myself for a couple of years and for me it is the “go to” virtual piano. I really don’t think you could get more realistic without spending a small fortune on a real acoustic piano…and of course with Pianoteq you get a vast range of pianos to choose from plus many other instruments. Give the free trial a go. You have nothing to lose!
