Synthogy Ivory Grand Piano Software

The Virtual Piano that started it all. Ivory Grand Pianos redefined what virtual instruments could do, combining stunning, world class piano samples with a powerful, software/DSP engine and custom user interface. Ivory's worldwide critical acclaim and popularity has made it the virtual piano of choice for the world's most elite muscians.

Ivory Grand Pianos is a multi-platform plug-in that recreates the sound and playing experience of 3 of the world's great concert grand pianos: the Bsendorfer Imperial 290 Concert Grand, the Steinway D Concert Grand, and the Yamaha C7 Grand. Recorded in the finest concert halls and studios with state of the art equipment, each piano is sampled with extreme attention to detail by award winning sound designer, Joe Ierardi.

These superb sample recordings are brought to life by Synthogy's custom sample playback and DSP engine, built from the ground up to deliver a new level of realism in digital sound creation. Each and every feature in Ivory is designed to bring out all the nuance of the original acoustic instrument's resonance, character and response. Groundbreaking features such as Release Samples that are triggered by both velocity and note duration, Sustain Resonance DSP for realistic damper pedal response, and real Una Corda (soft pedal) samples, are just a few examples of how Ivory's powerful engine delivers the unprecedented realism it is famous for. Use of proprietary Timbre Interpolation technology assures the smoothest velocity and note transitions for each of the pianos, achieving a level of musical playability that is unparalleled.

Synthogy's goal in designing Ivory was not simply to create a piano sample, or even make a virtual instrument, but rather to design a musical instrument. One that could meet the exacting performance standards of the most demanding and accomplished players, and at the same time be enjoyed by all of those who love piano.

Additionally, Ivory has been designed to meet the needs of anyone who requires piano in their musical production. Ivory's DSP engine includes world class digital effects such as Ambience, EQ and Chorusing. A host of custom controls such as Timbre, Stereo Width and Perspective, Mechanical Key Noise, Timbre Control, Stretch and Equal Tempered Tuning are placed at the user's fingertips to quickly tailor the sound and performance of Ivory to personal taste and to your production mix.

Finally, Ivory places all of this control and power in a simple, intuitive, and highly attractive user interface. Ivory is the complete package, but one only needs to sit down and play it to understand why players, critics, producers and engineers all over the world have acclaimed its brilliance and surpassing musicality. Ivory is an extraordinary playing experience!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (43 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Easily the best sounding digital piano but also the most processor intensive."
Sound: I have never heard a better sounding software piano anywhere. It's so good I can't listen or play any other software piano unless it's whithin an ensemble where the details are fuzzy anyway. It's clearly better than NI Akustik etc. The longer samples make a huge difference. Feature: The fact that there are many features are irrelevant for me even though it has quite a slew of them. I am just happyu that they've optimised it for a solo pianist. Ease of Use: Most good software synths are easy to use today and this is no exception. Quality: For this to work optimally you have to have a dedicated sample drive separate from the recording drive. It has to be at least 7200RPM with 8mb cache. In addition 2gb ram is also needed. Once you have that, you will see that it is a truly amazing instrument. I think it was necessary to create a piano that can be used for studio or preformances that has no compromises. This is it. But in order not to compromise you can't compromise on the hardware end either. Value: The value of the piece of software by itself is well worth the price. However, you must be willing to purchase a dedicated drive for this and possibly up your whole system. For people who bought a new system any earlier than last year this is quite an expensive upgrade. It's not just a $350 piano. You have to consider the price it's going to cost to make it work. If you need a piano, though, this is the only one to go with currently that does not compromise sound quality! Manufacturer Support: I've heard they're very good. I've done a lot of research on other sites and the comments coming back are that they're very friendly and generous with their support. The Wow Factor: It's got a great looking interface, but so does NI and a lot of other software synths. The beauty of this piece of software is its sound. Overall: For anyone who wants to be taken and mesmerised by the beauty of a high quality piano, this is the machine. I am going to buuild a system around it. I doubt something will come a long in the near future to replace it as the hardware technology to support it is lagging behind at this point.
