Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

An afordable Steinway

As a owner of a low entry digital piano, this product offered me the beautiful sound of an iconic 1951 Steinway Grand piano. With a lot of controls to fine tune your piano including the reverb type from small room to concert hall (so, unless you want something very sofisticate, you don't need another plug-in) it comes with unexpected things like the type of your soundboard, pedal noise, sustain resonance and even the newly sympathetic resonance. It is possible to set up even the response of the keyboard to the velocity of playing,The best thing it has is the high number of velocity layers which gives the pianist the feeling of an acoustic piano, rather than a digital one.

Synthogy Ivory II American Concert D

It's OK. But not as good at the Steinway in my Korg Kronos. I have more hopes for the new package. We will see. The best piano in Ivory II is the Yamaha C7.
