The latest in a series of critically acclaimed virtual pianos from Synthogy.
Played and recorded by many of the world’s great artists, this 1951 “New York” Steinway Model D was hand-picked by Steinway & Sons for concert promotion, and has been lovingly and consistently maintained by artisan technicians.
It combines mature overtones with a youthful clarity that can only be achieved with an instrument of this class.
Synthogy has captured every nuance of this very special instrument and meticulously brought it to life with unparalleled realism!
This particular New York Steinway D has the designation "CD 121" signifying that it was selected by Steinway & Sons for artist promotion and concert hall specification. The instrument has an exceptionally pure and clear tone, a remarkably expressive dynamic range and has been described by many artists as among the finest they’ve ever played. In fact, the plate of this particular piano is signed by pianists Glenn Gould and Rudolf Serkin, a testament of high praise for the instrument by two of the world’s great masters.
The piano was recorded in the Françoys-Bernier Concert Hall at Le Domaine Forget in the Charlevoix region of Quebec. This is the same hall where Ivory´s acclaimed German Steinway was recorded, and also by the same recording and technical team.
Ivory II–American Concert D will feature up to 20 velocity levels, will have the full compliment of Ivory II features, and run as a plug-in or standalone. For existing Ivory II users, Ivory II–American Concert D will install directly into the existing Ivory II library, giving access to all of Ivory II´s pianos and features from one great interface.
Highlights of Ivory II: American Concert D
The great thing about American Concert D is that you can use it for virtually any style of music; its classic, expensive-sounding timbre is almost universally adaptable, and will add production value to arangements with very little user effort. Basically, you just load it (which takes about 10 seconds) and play!
MTM Verdict: Synthogy's American Concert D faithfully captures the tone and clearity of a classic Steinway piano, and has a pleasingly flexible playback engine

I use this for studio recording. The sounds are incredible and the software interface is very easy to use in my DAW. Anyone who wants seriously accurate piano samples for studio recording should by Synthogy Ivory products.
Lovely product. Poco se puede decir de esta librería. Entre el Galaxy Vintage D y mi Ravenscroft 275 de VI Labs, estoy más que satisfecho.
One of the best virtual pianos I've tried.
With the Synthogy Ivory 2.5 or later Piano Engine you can use the PACE computer based activation or the traditional PACE iLok™ Key activation. Previous Piano Engine versions always need and iLok™ key.
This Instrument requires an iLok Key!
This USB protection device is not included in the box of this collection, it is a separate item you have to buy additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one iLok Key with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. If you already own another iLok protection device you can use it for this instrument, too. Each iLok dongle can store up to 100 product licenses, the new iLok2 even up to 500 licenses. Licenses can be manged easily using the iLok Licence Manager and for protection against theft or loss we recommend you the Zero Downtime Protection with TLC
Additionally an internet connection on any computer and a free user-accout at www.ilok.com is required to authorize the product.
