Virtual piano

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 industry standard, and the virtual piano of choice for the world's most elite musicians.

Now the world's most popular virtual grand piano collection just got better with the creation of Ivory II Grand Pianos. Featuring a greatly expanded sound set with nearly double the velocity layers, and the powerful, new Ivory II piano DSP engine with Harmonic Resonance Modeling for true Sympathetic String Vibration, Ivory II Grand Pianos soars at the highest possible levels of sampling and synthesis technology.

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 industry standard, and the virtual piano of choice for the world's most elite musicians.

Now the world's most popular virtual grand piano collection just got better with the creation of Ivory II Grand Pianos. Featuring a greatly expanded sound set with nearly double the velocity layers, and the powerful, new Ivory II piano DSP engine with Harmonic Resonance Modeling for true Sympathetic String Vibration, Ivory II Grand Pianos soars at the highest possible levels of sampling and synthesis technology.

The playing experience is simply extraordinary with an emotional range extending from the heartiest fortissimo to the most delicate and nuanced pianissimo. Ivory II Grand Pianos will breathe under your fingers, inspiring your best performance from a truly organic instrument.

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 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 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 new sound sculpting capabilities for custom piano programming and sound design.

At the heart of Ivory II are Ivory's legendary pianos. Each Ivory piano 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, unrivaled playability, and a musical experience that is unsurpassed.

    Don't install this! It broke all my grand pianos except for the Italian Grand. I'll post the solution when I hear it...

    Voilà maintenant 2 mois que j'ai acquis cet instrument et que je reprend du plaisir à jouer du piano avec des sons dignes de ce nom. Une préfère particulière pour le steinway. Les controles sont vraiment bien, la posibilité de gérer le bruit des touches du piano et le timbre c'est vraiment top. La partie effets est pas trop mal, la reverb un peu legère à mon gout. Pour combler cela j'utilise une space designer, et là ça sonne monstrueusement.
    La dynamique du son est vraiment impressionnante. Il faut vraiment le tester pour s'en rendre compte. Je trouve que les demos ne rendent pas vraiment service au son et à la dynamique. le tester c'est l'approuvé :)
    Un petit bémol quand même, sur certains samples on entend une resonnance pas toujours agréable (surtout sur le yamaha). Et comme elle n'est pas aléatoire, ça sonne vraiment comme un problème, domage. En tout cas pour tout les fans des sons de piano c'est une merveille, un grand plaisir à jouer.

    Cet instrument VST est extratordinaire. En effectuant quelques réglages sur le dynamic range, le timbre et le bruit de l'ettoufement de la touche, vous optenez un résultat epoustouflant. Bien evidement il faut avoir un beau clavier dans mon cas c'est le Roland RD-700 et je suis aux anges! Steinway the grand peu aller au dodo
