The Sonic Glories of the Legendary '51 Steinway DNOTE: This product requires an iLok to operate. Please call your Sales Engineer for more information.
Synthogy's Ivory II American Concert D piano plug-in puts you at the helm of the vintage 1951 New York Steinway D Concert Grand that was selected by Steinway's concert department for Steinway artist promotion. This iconic instrument's plate was signed by Glenn Gould, Rudolf Serkin, and other legendary pianists - which is your first clue as to how intensely marvelous it sounds. Impeccably recorded by the Synthology team in the flawless acoustics of Quebec's Francoys-Bernier Concert Hall, the Ivory II American Concert D is a must-have addition to your virtual instrument library.
Synthogy Ivory II American Concert D Piano Plug-in at a Glance:
A very special grand piano for your instrument library
Synthogy's Ivory II American Concert D has quite a history. The New York Steinway D piano designated "CD 121" was hand-picked by Steinway & Sons for artist promotion and concert hall duties. The instrument has exceedingly pure tone and clarity, and its extraordinarily expressive dynamic range and has been described by numerous top artists as "among the finest" they've played. High praise indeed. What a prime subject for the considerable piano sampling talents of Synthogy's Ivory II team!

After listening to the demo of Ivory II American Concert D I was very impressed and decided to give it a try. This alone sounded amazing. I was impressed by the clean and distinguishable sound produced being identical to a real Steinway. After using this I haven't looked back. Best part is both Pro Tools 10.0 and Studio One can load this as VST. It will surely make your production sound a lot better versus the native piano virtual instruments provided. Now if they can make every single instrument other than piano sound as this realistic I would be the first one to buy it. close [-]
The Most Realistic Sounding Concert Grand
by Wendell Mills from Austin, TXI own many sampled synth grand pianos including all of Ivory. This latest Ivory product, American Concert D, is the closest so far to a real concert grand sound, and I may choose to use it in my next... read more [+] Solo Piano Stylings CD. It has just the right amount of sustain longevity for an excellent studio production concert grand sound. The Ivory German, Bosendorfer and Italian Grands are great, but this has that one notch improvement due to long samples of a virtually perfect Steinway Concert Grand. It also offers many different preset variants of the piano, or allows you to customize your own. If you buy only one sampled concert grand synth add-in, this is it. close [-]

by Jordan White from Atlanta, GAI have plenty of virtual pianos. Some are better than others, some are worse, but each has their place. Then I added IVORY American Concert D to the mix. Now there is no comparison. When you load it u... read more [+]p, you cant help but be inspired by the sound, feel and touch of the piano. The songs came flowing out of me for the first couple of hours. I A/B'ed it with a C7 that I had recorded professionally, and I literally could not tell that the IVORY was virtual. The level of control that it offers is mind boggling--You can change so many parameters so that when you are mixing, if you need to make it sit better you can change it. Stick up, room tone, pedal noise...So in a dense mix you can lose all of that stuff, or in a sparse one you can have all of that juicy stuff and more. If there was any bad thing at all, it is that it does hog my CPU...I am running a 2.1 ghz MacBook with 4gb of ram and it eats up 75% of the CPU at any time. But it is worth it. Trust me. IMHO, it is the most realistic and glorious sounding Grand Piano I have ever played-except for the real ones of course. close [-]
