This new new custom engine for Synthogy''s line of virtual pianos will provide new features, an all-new GUI and further expanded piano sample sets. A host of new piano-related features have been added to the Ivory II engine. Principle among these is Sympathetic String Resonance, as well as Half Pedaling, Lid Position, Pedal Noise and Tuning Tables to deliver the most detail and control available in a virtual piano.
Additional features like timbre shifting, parametric EQ, and new synth layer control offer new sound-sculpting capabilities for custom piano programming and sound design.
At the heart of Ivory II are Ivory's pianos. Each Ivory piano has been further refined and developed to include more velocity levels (up to 18 per piano), more soft pedal samples, more release samples, with greater fidelity and refinement than ever before.
All Ivory products operate as stand-alone or as plug-ins within AU, VST (Mac/PC), and RTAS (Mac/PC) hosts. The Ivory II upgrade will be offered on all three of Synthogy''s existing products in the spring of 2010. Upgrades for existing customers will be offered, with details to be announced at a later date.
