Time+Space has announced the immediate availability of Studio Grands, Synthogy’s fifth Ivory II collection. A significant update of the Ivory engine has also been released.

Synthogy Ivory II Studio Grands

The incredibly versatile Ivory II Studio Grands features two exceptional pianos recorded in legendary studios – a Steinway B Grand Piano recorded at Power Station New England, Connecticut, and a Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano, recorded in California´s Firehouse Recording Studios.

These two pianos are perfect for umpteen styles of music, and, with an incredible up to 24 velocity levels, harmonic resonance modeling, multiple levels of soft pedal and release samples, plus many other features, this collection delivers one of the most expressive and realistic playing experiences possible in a virtual piano today.

Ivory II Studio Grands is available from Time+Space for £219 GBP.

The version 2.5 update, which now applies to all Ivory II pianos, brings a host of new features.

Changes in Ivory engine v2.5

  • Shimmer: a powerful new sound design feature that provides unique control over the decay/sustain portion of the piano note.
  • New Half-Pedal Controls to provide the flexibility necessary to make adjustments suited to your controller.
  • Assignable MIDI Controls.
  • High Resolution MIDI Velocity Response.

The update also supports PACE´s machine-based license authorization system as well as the traditional PACE iLok key. This means users have the option to authorize their iLok key, OR authorise their computer directly without the use of the iLok.

The v2.5 update is free for all existing registered Ivory II customers and is now automatically included across all Ivory pianos.
