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.
Synthogys 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 Synthogys 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 worlds finest Concert Grands.
Ivorys 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.
