The latest in Synthogy´s highly acclaimed Ivory II series of virtual pianos, Ivory II Studio Grands features two classic studio grand pianos recorded in iconic studios.
The Steinway B is one of the most recorded pianos in history and is widely considered the ideal studio piano. Its unique balance of size and power make it an extremely versatile instrument for all styles of music. This particular instrument was hand selected and prepared with the kind cooperation of Steinway & Sons® at their factory in Astoria New York.
Before recording, all piano regulation, voicing and tuning was done on-site by a Steinway concert technician before painstakingly sampled by Synthogys expert team. The recording sessions took place in the classic tuned live room of Power Station NE, an acoustic replica of the famed Power Station New York.
This Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano possesses a deeply resonant tone and balance in all registers and has a distinguished place in the history of recorded music. Slightly longer than most studio grands at 7' 4", and with four additional low keys, this instrument has appeared on numerous Grammy®-winning and Grammy-nominated recordings. The sessions were engineered by Tony Shepperd in the state-of-the-art Studio A at Firehouse Recording Studios in Pasadena, its venerated sound captured in this historic piano room.
