Two exceptional studio grand pianos

With Studio Grands, Synthogy presents the newest member of the Ivory II series. Included are two extraordinary studio grand pianos, recorded in 2 legendary studios. Another highlight is the piano engine revised by Synthogy, which has been enhanced in version 2.5 with numerous features.

Steinway Model B Grand Piano - Power Station NE - Waterford, Connecticut

The Steinway B concert grand is one of the most recorded pianos in music history. Due to its balanced sound character, it is an absolute favorite for use in the studio - regardless of the genre. Before starting the recordings in the Power Station NE Studio, the grand piano was thoroughly prepared in collaboration with a Steinway & Sons® technician.

Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano Firehouse Recording Studios - Pasadena, California

From the delicate pianissimo to the brilliant fortissimo, the Bösendorfer 225 grand thrills all along the line. Additional bass strings not only expand the range of the instrument, but also the timbre. The sound presence in all positions is the reason for the popularity of the 225, which can be heard on several Grammy-winning productions.

Under the direction of Tony Shepperd, the recordings took place in the Firehouse Recording Studio, and the team around Synthogy attached great importance to detailed sampling in order to make this masterpiece sound as authentic as possible.
