Ivory II Grand Pianos for Kontakt


#1

Is this for real? Ivory II for 19.00?


#2

I doubt it… :stuck_out_tongue: Where are you seeing that?


#3

The only stuff for Kontakt using Ivory are bootlegs that are vastly reduced in size and features. But there are offerings out there. I don’t know the legality end of it though as Synthogy doesn’t show any affiliations of that sort with those library makers. They are likely cheats but I don’t imagine they (whoever is offering it) will post or explain. Do you have a link?

Sorry, thought I had included a link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ivory-Grand-Pianos-II-piano-samples-for-KONTAKT/173044938668?hash=item284a4837ac:g:vMgAAOSwQm9Z2kqC

Here’s a quote from the feature list: “Total size 3Gb (Cut unofficial version) of stunning, Acoustic Grand Piano sampled instruments”

Hi Lee,

Thanks for the link :slight_smile:

It says :

“Total size 3Gb (Cut unofficial version)”

Yes, this is the same unauthorized condensed copy some fellow made a few years ago. Either he or some inter-prizing pirate is trying to market it now on ebay is what it looks like to me. FWIW I also remember reading that it was an OK piano library as far as simple Kontakt libraries go. (there are some very complex Kontakt piano libraries as well that are legit)

A little off topic, the iPad version of Ivory II, while of course not the same quality as the full Windows app (it only needs 2 gb of drive space), sounds surprisingly good. It’s available as an add-on for Korg module. I can see it being useful for practice or where traveling light is top priority.

The great grand father of it all was the Kurzweil K2xxx series pianos created by the 2 engineers that founded Synthogy. It was only 2 Mb!

Yeah, “cut unofficial version” and “key no needed” sounds totally legit :lying_face:
