Over 75gb less install space though infinitely more versatile/configurable for one
Yes that's obvious.
What's great about Ivory II is the shimmer resonance sound while playing extensive chords with sustain pedal. Sounds great.
But I haven't heard that in a Pianoteq demo. Found no material with sustained chords that simply fade out to compare that.
I think what you say it's obvious isn't that much obvious to you. Being a physically modeled piano, Piantoeq is NOT limited to any kind of piano sound. Therefore, even the implemented models have several presets that greatly expand the "sound" of that modeled piano, in many aspects, making it suitable for many different uses.
And if you have the Standard or the Pro version, you can even tweak those presets to your choice. Since it isn't sample based, you are not limited to that sampled sounds, you can go pretty much anywhere you want. I don't know what kind of "Pianoteq demo" you heard, but I can sure you that Pianoteq can sound in many, many different ways.
That said, your mention of a "shimmer resonance sound while playing extensive chords with sustain pedal
" is not really helping. Maybe you could post an example of what exactly do you mean by that?
I have an example I usually use to demo pianos, which is the Rachmaninoff Prelude in C sharp Minor Op. 3 No. 2. Don't know if that is suitable to what you look for, but I can post some examples recorded using Pianoteq several models. It has plenty of chords with sustained pedal.
