OVERVIEW

The authentic sounds of 4 legendary Upright Pianos in one multi-platform Virtual Instrument.

For years, Ivory users have been clamoring for Synthogy to release an upright piano virtual instrument collection, and now that time has come. Ivory Upright Pianos presents the unique, intimate sound of upright pianos using Synthogy's groundbreaking software technology and piano-building expertise.

This virtual instrument collection of Vertical Pianos consists of four complete pianos. Each piano was carefully chosen, and the vintage instruments selected after an exhaustive search among hundreds of vintage uprights. Each of these authentic pianos was recorded with Synthogy's usual meticulous attention to detail to capture the unique personalities of the piano.

Ivory Upright Pianos includes the following instruments:

Modern Upright - Yamaha U5 upright

Yamaha uprights are widely respected among today's best uprights. The model U5 is the top of the Yamaha upright line. 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.

Vintage Upright - 1914 A.M. Hume upright

This big, American-made upright is 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 particular piano was chosen for its tremendous tone and its all-original parts, which were carefully maintained over the years. This classic vintage American upright is versatile enough to carry virtually any style of music.

Honky Tonk, Barroom Upright - 1915 Packard upright

Another big, old American upright with all-original parts, though this instrument has enjoyed a more colorful life than the Hume. This particular piano comes by its barroom sound authentically, having been the house piano at the famous Cheers bar in Boston for many years. Custom detuned in the genuine honky-tonk style, this beauty has loads of smoky, scotch-and-soda character.

Tack Piano - A genuine, early-1900s upright with real tacks in the hammers

Like the Barroom Upright, this piano is the real deal, not a synth emulation. Custom prepared for our recording session with metal tacks inserted into the hammer felts, and "not perfectly" tuned, this instrument is a turn-of-the-century classic. The Tack Piano is an authentic sound that continues to be used in everything from traditional period and roots music to classic pop and modern experimental rock.

Like all Synthogy products, Ivory Upright Pianos comes complete with the award-winning Ivory piano engine. All of the same great features of Ivory's engine are included. In addition there are features such as custom upright soundboard DSP and a selectable "creaks and clunks" layer to provide an even more authentic upright playing experience.

Ivory Upright Pianos is a full-fledged, free-standing Virtual Instrument that can run on its own as a plug-in or standalone. Or, if you are an existing Ivory user, Ivory Upright Pianos will install directly into your existing Ivory library, giving you access to all of Ivory's pianos and features from one great interface.

OMG get it...

By T.M.M.

from L.A., CA

I've have Ivory for a little while now and love it, but it doesn't always fit my music to have that perfect gigantic grand sound. So upright it was! And wow... I love these pianos. They're just as alive with soul as the 1920s Baldwin I've got. But the added benefit of actually being in tune, and a great sounding room just makes it a no brainer. The one thing I should warn you about synthogy is it's size... massive. You CANNOT track with synthogy. Its too CPU intensive, And I'm running an i5 iMac/8gigs of ram. I usually use my keyboards internal piano sounds to track, its non-latency and good enough to track with. Then load synthogy onto the midi track in post. The stand alone will work but its still fairly glitchy if you add anything to the sounds, which basically means adding more samples, and you'll start to get latency and jitters. Now you've been warned, it wouldn't be a good program if you wanna play live with it. But when it comes to record production, I have not come across ANYTHING that holds a candle to this. I've done sessions in 10 million dollar studios with Yamaha C7s that didn't sound anywhere near as nice. And just one of those sessions costs more than both Ivory and Upright. So its a no brainer.
