Pianoverse 5-Star Review

Gearspace: “Excellent piano sounds with great response to playing style.”

Pianoverse gets 5 out of 5 stars from Gearspace in their latest review. Scoring high on all levels, IK's new piano virtual instrument comes highly recommended. If you're unsure which piano to get first, Gearspace suggests trying the monthly subscription.

Here are some highlights and a link to the full review below.

Pianoverse pros

  • Excellent piano sounds with great response to playing style.
  • Unique Spaces and FX are included – these are of excellent quality and range from familiar realistic environments to extremely far out.
  • Excellent set of modeling controls with hammer noise, pedal sounds and even sympathetic resonance adjustable from very low to beyond any sensible level.
  • Samples are very dry so that either the fine internal spaces or any other reverb processor you have, can be used to shape the final tones.
  • Flexible MIDI CC and MIDI Learn control of all parameters.

Pianoverse score

  • Sound quality: 5
  • Ease of use: 5
  • Features: 5
  • Bang for buck: 5
  • Overall: 5

Pianoverse is a superb sampled virtual piano and I would be happy using any single model as my only piano. The FX and Spaces along with the Master and Model controls can take it from a realistic acoustic piano to an ethereal cinematic sound machine.

It's certainly worth checking out if you need a fine piano for recording or live performances.


IK have provided a flexible way to pay and play. For $15 you could check out all the available pianos for up to a month, decide on one or two, cancel the subscription and purchase what you want.
