Ivory II Upright Pianos from Synthogy is a classic collection of four vertical pianos delivered as a virtual instrument. Supported by the Ivory II DSP engine, the pianos feature harmonic resonance modeling for true sympathetic string vibration response. Each of the pianos include up to sixteen velocity layers, pedal noise enhancements, half-pedaling and more, while offering an intimate playing and listening experience.

Additional features include custom upright soundboard DSP and a selectable "creaks and clunks" layer that provide an even more authentic upright playing experience. Ivory II Upright Pianos can run as a plug-in or standalone, and for existing Ivory II users, Ivory II Upright Pianos will install directly into their existing Ivory II library, providing access to all Ivory II pianos in a single, unified interface.

The Pianos

Yamaha U5 (Modern Upright)
  • The U5 is the top of Yamaha's upright line, a line widely regarded as the best uprights being built today
  • Expertly tuned and regulated, it is a great piano for a modern pop, rock or jazz recording
  • Many musicians and producers love the way this upright sits in a mix and adds personality to the music
1914 A.M. Hume Upright (Vintage Upright)
  • A big, American-made upright from the "golden age" of piano building, Hume pianos are highly regarded by knowledgeable piano technicians for their excellent build quality and resonant sound
  • This instrument was chosen for its tremendous tone and its all original parts
  • Perfect for blues, rock, vintage jazz or roots music, and yet versatile enough for virtually any style of music
  • Outstanding as a solo instrument or in the mix
1915 Packard Upright (Honky Tonk, Barroom Upright)
  • Big, old American upright with all original parts, though this instrument has enjoyed a more "colorful" life than the Hume
  • Featuring an authentic barroom sound, this particular instrument was the house piano at the famous Cheers bar in Boston for many years
  • Custom detuned in the genuine "honky tonk" style, the piano features loads of smoky, scotch-and-soda character
Tack Piano
  • Genuine, early 1900s upright with real tacks in the hammers
  • Like the Barroom Upright, this piano is the real deal, not a synthetic emulation
  • Custom prepared for the recording session with metal tacks inserted into the hammer felts, and "not perfectly" tuned, this instrument is a turn of the century classic
  • An authentic sound that continues to be used in everything from traditional period and roots music, to classic pop and modern experimental rock
