Synthogy Ivory II Grand Pianos

Model: ILIVR2   |    Mpn: ILIVR2   |    Ean: 0186697000117   |    PartNumber: ILIVR2   |   Asin: B0042LKSXW

Ivory II Grand Pianos is the next generation of Ivory piano products by Synthogy. Powered by a new custom engine, the entire line of Ivory virtual pianos features groundbreaking technology, a fresh graphic interface, and further expanded piano sample sets to provide performers and producers with more expressive detail than ever. A host of new piano-centric features have been added to the Ivory II engine. Principal among them is Sympathetic String Resonance, a long sought after but elusive characteristic of real pianos that Synthogy approaches in a completely unique way, realizing the true complexities and subtleties of sympathetic string excitation. This brand new technology 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 sound-sculpting capabilities for custom piano programming and sound design.At the heart of Ivory II are Ivory's legendary pianos. Each Ivory piano, in every Ivory product, 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, a high-level of playability, and a musical experience like no other.What's new in Ivory II?Synthogy listens to its customers, and has
