Synthogy (a new audio software company) have produced Ivory, a detailed and vast virtual grand piano. Well in fact 3 grand pianos, the German Steinway® D 9’ Concert Grand, Bösendorfer® 290 Imperial Grand and Yamaha® C7 Grand. These are reproduced by a proprietary 32-bit sample-playback and DSP engine which uses as its source 3500 samples of these venerable pianos. These samples include all 88 keys of each piano - individually sampled in up to 8 dynamic levels, including the extended low octave on the Bösendorfer. In fact it contains a total of 20Gb of samples as the basis for the model but avoids placing all of these onto your hard drive as they can be installed separately. Particular care has been taken with the model to reproduce the resonance, response and character of the pianos. Ivory features an array of digital effects, including Ambience, Chorus and EQ, along with customizable user controls for Timbre, Stereo Width and Perspective, Velocity Response, Mechanical Key Noise, Tuning and more. Each 32-bit sample features full sustain without looping, and Synthogy’s “sample interpolation” technology allows for smooth velocity and note transitions. Ivory was produced by Joe Ierardi and George Taylor who both previously worked at Kurzweil Music Systems and have a long history of working on Piano modules and DSP effects. Ivory was demoed for the first time at the Ilio booth at NAMM today. Ivory is available for AU, VST and RTAS, for both PC and Mac OSX. The product will ship in Q1, 2004, and carries an MSRP of $349.
