Can anyone explain to a newbie like me exactly what Ivory is and how it works?

I keep hearing about it so it must be good.

I assume you Ivory mean the software and not some part of an elephant.

Ivory is a set of samples recorded from an acoustic piano and software to allow them to be played back under control of MIDI data sent from a keyboard. There is a lot more to it but that's enough for starts.

There are many competitors with price and quality all over the map. Interestingly price is not an indicator of quality. I think because it costs neraly nothing to "manufacture" software

What's different about Ivory is that compared to all but a few others the number of samples is huge.
