Ivory II-Grand Pianos from Synthology and distributed by ILIO is a virtual instrument featuring samples of 3 grand pianos - a Bösendorfer 290 Imperial Grand, a German Steinway D 9' Concert Grand, and a Yamaha C7 Grand. The greatly expanded sound set includes nearly double the velocity layers, and an improved DSP engine with Harmonic Resonance Modeling for true Sympathetic String Vibration recreation.
The virtual instruments deliver a playing experience that is extraordinary, with an emotional range extending from the heartiest fortissimo to the most delicate and nuanced pianissimo. The pianos are available in the three main plug-in formats for use with the appropriate host software, or function standalone via the integrated player.
Note: Requires an iLok key if one is not already present on the system.
