    As close to real thing as you can get!

    I chose Synthogy's Upright Piano collection because I've spent most of my life at upright acoustic pianos. Over the past several years, my piano technique has been adversely affected by trying to get any number of synth based, hammer action keyboards to sound like a real piano. I play so hard on these instruments, that the light and nimble touch needed to execute scales and runs just isn't there. Enter Synthogy's software. Right out of the box, it 'feels' totally different. The resonance is astounding, and suddenly I can play an electronic keyboard like a piano again....YAY!
    I'm triggering the software from a Yamaha MOTIF 88 key synth, running it on my MacBook Pro. It's so nice to know that I haven't lost my touch...I just needed Synthogy to bring a real piano to my virtual world. Simply the best feeling VI piano I've ever played.

    Ivory upright pianos rock!

    Up till recently I have been playing the Garritan Steinway, but, I just couldn't get that turn of the century bar room sound. That was until I purchased the Ivory II upright. Don't misunderstand, I still like my Garritam,but, for Ragtime playing, the Ivory is the way to go.

    Inconvenient

    Ivory Upright Pianos came with unexpected extra costs and inconveniences. The first being the 12 disc installation. I had to purchase a usb superdrive for my macbook pro (no cd drive) which set me back $100. Then there was the iLok key, which is an added $50. The cost of shipping for the iLok was another $50, plus the duties and taxes which came out to $25.

    The whole process seemed dated to me. The piano itself is very nice with many tweakable parameters, but it's not all that much better than the cheaper alternatives.
