ILIO has announced the release of Secret Piano, described as a first-ever patch collection for Synthogy's Ivory II-Upright Pianos that showcases the versatility of Ivory II's powerful engine. Secret Piano is available now as a free download - here's what ILIO has to say about it...
For the first time ever, ILIO is proud to introduce a patch collection for Ivory II accentuating the versatility of its engine. "Secret Piano" is a free pack of 21 presets specifically crafted for Ivory II-Upright Pianos and is available now for download from ILIO.com/secretpiano.
ILIO is made up of an eclectic group of musicians, composers and sound designers. The "Secret Piano" collection is a collaborative project by multiple musicians/employees at ILIO in an effort to demonstrate just how versatile Ivory II can be. To design the presets of this pack, ILIO stretched the boundaries of what is a traditional piano. Heavily inspired by certain ambient artists of today such as Jon Hopkins, Ólafur Arnalds, Hammock, and more, "Secret Piano" includes soft, mellow, dark, and bright piano tones, with liberal use of warping reverb, a few synth layers, and even includes some sounds decidedly un-piano.
Important: Ivory II-Upright Pianos is recommended for best results. However, you're welcome to try substituting any of the other Ivory II piano Keysets you may already have. Simply load the Secret Piano preset first, then select an alternate Ivory piano Keyset.
