In the rarified world of great concert artists, there are precious few instruments that leave a lasting impression upon the masters who played them. Ivory II American Concert D is one of those instruments.This vintage 1951 New York Steinway D (CD 121) was chosen by the Steinway & Sons concert department for Steinway artist promotion. Throughout the years, the instrument has been lauded by some of the world's greatest concert artists. Indeed, the plate of the piano is signed by Glenn Gould, Rudolf Serkin, and many others, as a testament to high praise by the world's great masters.Put your hands on it, and it's not hard to see why. The instrument has an exceptionally clear and transparent sound, yet with a singing tone and mature beauty and resonance that can only be found on a concert instrument in this class. The recording took place in the Franoys-Bernier Concert Hall at Le Domaine Forget in the Charlevoix region of Quebec, the same hall where Ivory's acclaimed German Steinway was recorded. Reunited were master concert technician Michel Pedneau, performer/producer Joe Ierardi, and recording engineer, Mark Donahue of Soundmirror to capture every detail of this amazing instrument.With a 49GB library, Ivory II American Concert D is the largest single piano in the Ivory family. This American Steinway possesses a naturally long sustain, which is captured in its entirety to the final decay, some of the notes ringing longer than two minutes. Also included are up to 20 velocity levels, with more soft pedal samples, and more release samples to capture more detail than any Ivory instrument before.Ivory II American Concert D is powered by the award-winning Ivory II engine, and contains the full compliment of Ivory II's features, foremost being our acclaimed Harmonic Resonance Modeling for the realization of true Sympathetic String Resonance. Custom designed by Synthogy DSP guru, George Taylor, this technology does not rely upon tri

The Tempest by Dave Smith Instruments combines authentic analog and digital synthesis with an intuitive interface, 16 velocity/pressure-sensitive pads, and a powerful sequencer. It's an instrument clearly meant to extend the capabilities and expand the imaginative reach of beat-oriented musicians everywhere. Each of the 6 analog voices has 2 analog oscillators plus 2 digital oscillators (with a large bank of included samples), Dave's classic analog low-pass filter with audio-rate modulation, an additional high-pass filter, analog VCA with feedback, 5 envelopes, 2 LFOs, an extraordinary variety of analog modulation routings, and stunning sonic quality, warmth and punch. Although optimized for drum sounds, it excels at tuned sounds as well, and even doubles as a 6-voice analog synth. In addition to the 6 direct voice outputs, there are stereo mix outputs and phones outputs, plus 2 inputs for foot switches or expression pedals, MIDI in/out and USB.The performance-oriented operating system, 90 panel controls, and bright 256 x 64 OLED display work together to provide a tightly integrated, non-stop workflow: record a drumbeat in real-time, switch to another drumbeat and use the lit pads to record it using step programming, switch to another drumbeat and record tuned keyboard parts, use the 2 touch controllers to to record real-time note or beat-wide parameter animations, use the generous sound controls to edit any of the drum sounds, tweak the analog effects or drum mix, arrange beats in real time and record the live arrangement into a song, enter/exit Song mode and much more, all without ever stopping play.16 pressure- and velocity-sensitive lit pads are arranged in a 2x8 configuration, providing intuitive access to all your fingers and providing the ideal compromise between the popular 4x4 pad arrangement (popular for real time programming ) and 1x16 arrangement (popular for step programming) because Tempest does both. The pads can be used to play 32 drum sounds (2 bank
Soft synth extravaganza! If you know anything about Arturia, you know that they make SMOKIN' virtual models of classic synths. And they make a lot of them. Trouble is, it's hard to decide what to get... they're all so good! So, now you don't have to decide right away... just get The One. It includes all the installers and user manuals for ALL of Arturia's software titles, right on one DVD. Then, with it, you get an activation code for activating just ONE of these instruments. All in all, you've got your choice of eight of the world's finest software synthesizers, right at your disposal... hey, with flexibility like this, The One is the perfect gift for any synth-head or Arturia fan (especially if that synth-head or Arturia fan is yourself!).

**This is the upgrade version and will upgrade current users of Omnisphere to the full version of Omnisphere 2.0.Omnisphere is among the elite virtual synthesizer programs for producers, composers, and sound designers; and if you think this monster power synth couldnt get any better, youve just been proven wrong. Introducing Omnisphere 2.0, the first v2.0 of any Spectrasonics instrument and it is truly gigantic!With Omnisphere 2.0 comes a massive variety of new synthesis options, a staggering audio library with over 10,000 sounds, a new interface with an enhanced sound browsing capability, a new and enhanced arpeggiator, 25 new effects units with flexible attributes, as well as other improvements and specialized features that make Omnipshere 2.0 a very worthy upgrade.Vast New Synthesis PossibilitiesOmnisphere 2.0 comes a vast array of new synthesis possibilities including the ability to import your own audio content as a sound source inside Omnisphere giving you limitless sound creation possibilities using your own sample library. The new Granular Synthesis algorithm will allow you to completely transform the included content or morph your own audio into unimaginable soundscapes. Try changing a smooth Jazz recording into an ethereal soundscape or even a blazing synth lead with just a few parameter tweaks. The possibilities are endless!Not many people realize, but Omnisphere can also create purely synthetic sounds without using any samples at all. There are now over 400 DSP waveforms for the synth oscillator, which is 100 times more than the original version, and each waveform is now a Morphing Wavetable with vast new possibilities and colors. A patch can have up to 10 oscillators and each oscillator can have its own wavetable, so you can see how complex you can get in your sound designing. Unison has also been improved with new analog drift behavior that makes an ordinary synth sound absolutely h
Hailed at its introduction as a "holy grail of recording," by the music press (and adopted worldwide as the largest-selling audio plug-in of all time), Auto-Tune 7 corrects intonation and timing problems in vocals or solo instruments, without distortion or artifacts, while preserving all of the expressive nuance of the original performance - with audio quality so pristine that the only difference between what goes in and what comes out is the intonation and timing. All with a user-interface that is a model of clarity, speed and ease-of-use.
