Two exceptional Studio Grands recorded in legendary Studios!

The latest in Synthogy´s highly acclaimed Ivory II series of virtual pianos, Ivory II Studio Grands features two classic studio grand pianos recorded in iconic studios.

Steinway Model B Grand Piano Power Station New England - Waterford, Connecticut

The Steinway B is one of the most recorded pianos in history and is widely considered the ideal studio piano. Its unique balance of size and power make it an extremely versatile instrument for all styles of music. This particular instrument was hand selected and prepared with the kind cooperation of Steinway & Sons® at their factory in Astoria New York.

Before recording, all piano regulation, voicing and tuning was done on-site by a Steinway concert technician before painstakingly sampled by Synthogy’s expert team. The recording sessions took place in the classic tuned live room of Power Station NE, an acoustic replica of the famed Power Station New York.

Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano Firehouse Recording Studios - Pasadena, California

This Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano possesses a deeply resonant tone and balance in all registers and has a distinguished place in the history of recorded music. Slightly longer than most studio grands at 7' 4", and with four additional low keys, this instrument has appeared on numerous Grammy®-winning and Grammy-nominated recordings. The sessions were engineered by Tony Shepperd in the state-of-the-art Studio A at Firehouse Recording Studios in Pasadena, its venerated sound captured in this historic piano room.

Fazit:

Gefährlich realistisch und vielseitig noch dazu. Wo es aus verschiedensten Gründen nicht zu einem echten Steinway Model B oder Bösendorfer 225 reicht, kommt Synthogy euch mit "Ivory II - Studio Grands" extrem weit entgegen. Vielleicht sind über 100 Gigabyte für zwei Flügel etwas übertrieben, aber die Details und Einstellungsmöglichkeiten der Library sind es dann doch irgendwie wert. Und was dem Interface von Ivory II an Stil und Design fehlt, macht es mit Übersichtlichkeit und Lesbarkeit - und letztlich dem Sound - wieder wett. Klaviersampling auf höchstem Niveau

  • Bis zu 24 individuelle Velocity Samples
  • Viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten
  • Klingt sehr realistisch
  • Beide Flügel haben einen eigenen, charakteristischen Klang

Der Download benötigte 5 - 6 Stunden bei Highspeedinternet (mehr als 100 GB!) und die Installation verlief ohne Probleme. Sowohl der B-Flügel als auch der Bösendorfer 225 haben eine ähnliche Charakteristik, nämlich weich, was mich insofern überrascht hat, da alle anderen Grand Pianos von Synthogy einen härteren (brillianten) Klang haben. Beim Üben auf dem Digitalpiano ist der Klang aber sehr angenehm. Insgesamt eine sinnvolle Ergänzung zu den übrigen Produkten von Synthogy.
