Two Exceptional Studio Grands, Recorded in Legendary Studios

Steinway B Grand Piano Power Station New England—Waterford, Connecticut
The Steinway B is one of the most recorded pianos in history and is widely considered, “The Perfect Studio Piano.” Its unique balance of size and power make it an extremely versatile instrument for all styles of music. This particular instrument was hand selected and prepared with the kind cooperation of Steinway & Sons at their factory in Astoria New York. Before recording, all piano regulation, voicing and tuning was done on site by a Steinway concert technician before being painstakingly sampled by Synthogy’s expert team. The recording sessions took place in the classic tuned live room of Power Station NE, an acoustic replica of the famed Power Station New York.

Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano Firehouse Recording Studios—Pasadena, California
This Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano possesses a deeply resonant tone and balance in all registers and has a distinguished place in the history of recorded music. Slightly longer than most studio grands at 7' 4", and with four additional low keys, this instrument has appeared on numerous Grammy®-winning and Grammy-nominated recordings. The sessions were engineered by Tony Shepperd in the state-of-the-art Studio A at Firehouse Recording Studios in Pasadena, its venerated sound captured in one of the great piano rooms for all time.

Ivory II-Studio Grands ships with Synthogy’s brand new Ivory 2.5 Piano Engine, with PACE machine-based authorization and new features such as “Shimmer”, assignable MIDI controls, new Half-Pedal controls, and higher resolution MIDI velocity response.
