Tap into 20 gigs of virtual “Ivory”

Audiohead Interviews Tech Tips Events Goods and Gear Featured Music

Synthogy is a Massachusetts-based audio software company founded by George Taylor and Joe Ierardi who are former engineers for Kurzweil Music Systems. The duo teamed up to combine over 35 years of design experience in synthesizers, musical instruments, effects, and sound design, and unleash it in the form of software instruments comparable to Gigastudio.

Synthogy’s first product, Ivory, is a groundbreaking Grand Piano software instrument that features stunning samples taken from Steinway D, Bosendorfer 290 and Yamaha C7 Grand Pianos. This multi-platform plug-in is powered by Synthogy’s custom sample playback and DSP engine.

Ivory is the largest, most skillfully designed Grand Piano virtual instrument built yet, with over 3,500 samples combined into a sample-playback engine that was built from the ground up to bring out the resonance, response and character of the world’s finest Concert Grands.

Ivory’s insanely great piano samples were recorded in some of the top studios and concert halls. Then the sessions were polished up and producing by accomplished pianist and award winning sound designer Joe Ierardi, formerly of Kurzweil Music Systems.

“Joe Ierardi is a very important talent in the creation of musical sound. Piano sounds have been the hallmark of Kurzweil Music products for many years, and his sound design is second to none,” says Raymond Kurzweil. “He has more experience in this area than anyone in the industry that I can think of.”
