program screenIvory II Italian Grand is the second product in Synthogy´s newest generation of virtual piano technology. Featuring a greatly expanded sound set of the extraordinary 10 foot Concert Grand Piano, and fully integrated with the powerful new Ivory II piano DSP engine with Harmonic Resonance Modeling for true Sympathetic String Vibration, Ivory II Italian Grand shines like never before.

This exceptional piano is one of the world´s greatest and most sought after Concert instruments. Handcrafted in Italy, it is also one of the world´s most expensive and exclusive Concert Grands, renowned for its expressive dynamics and full-bodied character. Its tone is remarkably versatile, equally at home in large scale classical works, intimate jazz playing, as well as a full range of pop styles. The beauty of this instrument is captured in greater detail than ever, with up to 18 velocity levels, additional soft pedal and release samples and pedal noise enhancements. Synthogy´s decades of expertise in piano development, along with proprietary "timbre interpolation" technology combine to deliver the unrivaled playability and expressiveness that Ivory is famous for.

Ivory II Italian Grand also comes to life in a whole new way thanks to the groundbreaking features in the new Ivory II piano engine. Principal among them is 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 IIThe full compliment of Ivory IIs new features is also present, such as Half Pedaling, Lid Position, Pedal Noise, and Tuning Tables to provide even greater detail and control. Additionally, features such as Timbre Shifting, Parametric EQ, and new Synth Layer controls offer powerful new sound sculpting capabilities for custom piano programming and sound design. Years in the making, every effort has been taken to assure that Ivory II Italian Grand is a true and worthy successor to the legacy established by our original Ivory products.

Ivory II Italian Grand is not only one of the most stunning Concert Grands you´ll ever play, it is also one of the greatest values in software instruments at just $179 SRP. Whether you are a first time buyer or long time Ivory user, you owe it to yourself and your music to experience this amazing Concert Grand.

Redaktionstipp

Fazit

Bei dieser schieren Masse an Sounds muss das Fazit zweifelsohne lauten, dass mit Ivory eine der am umfassendsten und besten Sample-Libaries in Sachen Konzerflügel geschaffen wurde. Die Sounds sind mit Liebe zum Detail gesamplet, genauso wurden nützliche und praxisnahe Features im Plugin implementiert. Zwar wirkt der schiere Funktionsumfang und die vielfältigen Paramter auf den ersten Blick unter Umständen mehr abschreckend als einladend, hat man das Grundprinzip von Ivory aber verstanden, kann man schnell zwischen den Ebenen hin- und hermanövrieren und den Klang entsprechend den eigenen Vorstellungen formen. Man sollte also keine Angst haben, wirklich extensiv die Features von Ivory zu nutzen, aber auch wenn man lediglich auf die Presets zugreift hat man fast für jede Gelegenheit den passenden Flügelsound, denn die verschiedenen Typen untereinander liefern nochmals genügend Variationen. Dabei reagiert jeder Flügel individuell und mit eigener Note.

Ivory empfiehlt sich sowohl für Klassik-Sounds wie auch für Jazz und Pop/Rock, und man kommt gerne auf das Plugin zurück. Tatsächlich ertappe ich mich zusehends bei der Frage, was ich eigentlich vor Ivory in Sachen Piano-Sounds gemacht habe.
