Synthogy has announced that the recently released Ivory
v1.7 software engine will now be included with Ivory Italian Grand
. The original Italian Grand expansion pack for Ivory will be discontinued when the new version is released. No longer just an expansion for existing Ivory owners, Ivory Italian Grand ($169.00 MSRP) will now be a complete, free-standing Virtual Instrument that includes Ivory's powerful, custom piano engine technology.
The new Ivory Italian Grand will be available in February of 2008. With the upcoming release of the new Ivory Upright Pianos, and the 1.7 re-issue of their debut product Ivory Grand Pianos, Synthogy will have three piano product offerings, all of which will include the Ivory piano engine.
Ivory Grand Pianos, Ivory Italian Grand, and Ivory Upright Pianos are being distributed in North America by ILIO.
