In the March 2011 issue of Keyboard Magazine, Ivory II Grand Pianos receives a stellar review and wins the coveted Key Buy Award.
Here is a glimpse of what Executive Editor Stephen Fortner had to say:
"Superb. Stellar. Excellent. Outstanding. Best in class. Pick a superlative, and it won't adequately convey how real Ivory II sounds, nor how immersed in the music you'll feel when playing it"
" ...if you want one software piano that can cover any musical genre, is equally facile onstage or in the studio, and makes zero sonic compromises, Ivory II is the platinum standard. Long live the king!"
"If I had to narrow it down to two products that changed the world with regard to digital instruments sounding like a grand piano, I'd pick the Kurzweil K250 and Synthogy Ivory."
On Ivory II's Sympathetic Resonance... "the result is the most realistic, and musical emulation we've ever heard of the complex acoustical world beneath the piano lid."
"Pros: Software grand pianos don't get any better. Resonance modeling is incredibly realistic. Surprisingly CPU- and disk-efficient."
