      Synthogy Ivory II American Concert D (110756152)

Virtual piano instrument with over 70GB of content.

Ivory II is the second installment of Synthology's high-end virtual piano instruments. Featuring a greatly expanded sound set with nearly double the velocity layers, and the powerful, new Ivory II piano DSP engine with Harmonic Resonance Modeling for true Sympathetic String Vibration, Ivory II Grand Pianos soars at the highest possible levels of sampling and synthesis technology. The playing experience is simply extraordinary with an emotional range extending from the heartiest fortissimo to the most delicate and nuanced pianissimo. Ivory II Grand Pianos will breathe under your fingers, inspiring your best performance from a truly organic instrument.

A host of new piano-centric features have been added to the Ivory II engine. Including Sympathetic String Resonance, a long sought after but elusive characteristic of real pianos that Synthogy approaches in a completely new and unique way, realizing the true complexities and subtleties of sympathetic string excitation. Harmonic Resonance Modeling is a brand new technology that does not rely upon triggering additional samples, ordinary sine waves, or recordings in any way. Rather, notes struck that are harmonically related excite the actual complex overtones of the notes that are being held, in the same manner that undamped strings ring in a real acoustic piano. The result is an unprecedented new level of realism.

Ivory II also delivers some of Synthogy’s most frequent customer requests, with features such as Half Pedaling, Lid Position, Pedal Noise, and Tuning Tables to provide even greater detail and control. Additionally, features like Timbre Shifting, Parametric EQ, and new Synth Layer controls offer powerful new sound sculpting capabilities for custom piano programming and sound design.

At the heart of Ivory II are Ivory's legendary pianos. Each Ivory piano has been further refined and developed, including expanded velocity levels (up to 18 per piano), additional soft pedal samples, and more release samples. Synthogy's decades of expertise in piano development, along with proprietary "timbre interpolation" technology combine to deliver greater fidelity, unrivaled playability, and a musical experience that is unsurpassed.

Ivory II represents the most significant design enhancement to Ivory's custom piano technology since its introduction. Years in the making, every effort has been taken to assure that Ivory II is a true and worthy successor to the legacy established by Synthology's original Ivory products.

  • Great sound, no hassles

    As reviewed by dave on 7/5/2014

    I love the sound of this piano. It has a full, resonant sound which is different from other pianos I have used. Most are a little thin or metallic sounding to my ears, though I certainly haven't tried them all. There are a number of presets, and flexibility to edit the sound within them. All the presets are well described, and they actually sound different from each other. The rock piano has more attack and a slightly more trebley sound, so it stands out in a mix. The classical, "big hall" presets sound fuller, with more bottom end. The installation was easy. I was a bit worried about that after having read some bad reviews about ILok. I had no problems with it. It takes a few steps, but they're pretty easy. The files take a bit of time to load (about an hour in my case), but there were no hitches. I could go do some task, come back, and there would be a notification to insert the next disk. All pretty straightforward. Guitar Center was also easy to deal with. The order went through with no problems, it shipped quickly, and I got it in a couple of days, exactly when their shipping estimate predicted.
