Review: Synthogy Ivory II Grand Pianos - The Platinum Standard for Virtual Pianos

If you are looking for a virtual piano instrument that offers realistic and expressive sound, stunning detail and powerful features, you might want to check out Synthogy Ivory II Grand Pianos. This is the flagship product of Synthogy, a US-based company that specializes in piano sampling and synthesis. Ivory II Grand Pianos is the successor of the original Ivory, which was critically acclaimed as the "Platinum Standard" for virtual pianos.

Ivory II Grand Pianos features three of the world's finest grand pianos: a BÃsendorfer 290 Imperial Grand, a Steinway D Concert Grand and a Yamaha C7 Grand. Each piano has been meticulously sampled with up to 18 velocity layers, key release and una corda samples, as well as sustain and sympathetic resonance effects. The result is a rich and dynamic sound that responds naturally to your playing style and expression.

One of the most impressive features of Ivory II Grand Pianos is the Harmonic Resonance Modeling, which simulates the complex interactions between the strings of a real piano. When you press down the sustain pedal or play softly with the una corda pedal, you can hear the subtle vibrations and overtones of the other strings, creating a warm and resonant sound. You can also adjust the level and character of the resonance to suit your preference and taste.

Ivory II Grand Pianos also gives you plenty of options to customize and shape your sound. You can choose from five different lid positions, two stereo perspectives (performer or audience), and various parameters such as release time, key noise, timbre, dynamic range, stereo width and level. You can also use the Timbre Shift feature to alter the spectral balance of the sound, creating anything from subtle EQ changes to radical transformations.

Ivory II Grand Pianos runs on Mac and PC, as a stand-alone application or as an Audio Unit, VST or RTAS plug-in for your DAW. It requires 82GB of disk space for a full installation, but you can choose to install only the pianos that you need. It also has a flexible memory management system that allows you to reduce the processing and memory demands if your computer is struggling.

In conclusion, Ivory II Grand Pianos is an outstanding virtual piano instrument that delivers realistic and expressive sound, stunning detail and powerful features. It is suitable for a wide range of musical genres and styles, from classical to jazz to pop. Whether you are a professional pianist, a composer or a hobbyist, you will find Ivory II Grand Pianos to be an inspiring and satisfying tool for your musical endeavors.
