Selling my Synthogy Ivory Grand II and iLok key #1505092

Long story short, I dropped over $400 on Synthogy Ivory Grand, the upgrade Ivory Grand II )(which I just got in the mail, I never even opened it) and an iLok USB key. I have no use for the software anymore, and rather than just have it collect dust, I figure I'll let someone else get a deal on it. To be clear, this is the entire set of Ivory I with ALL dvd's, manuals, serial number, etc, a FRESH, never opened Ivory II Upgrade set (so this is the absolute latest version of the software), and an iLok key.

I have perfect heatware under computerpro3 and have been a member here for years.

I'm asking $200 shipped via paypal (or however you want, if you're local to me) for Ivory Grand, the NEVER OPENED Ivory II Upgrade and iLok USB key. While I can't change the login name of the iLok, I'll just reset the password to a temporary password before shipping it to you. That way you can login and change the password to your private one once you get it. This will effectively allow you to own the iLok USB key and install the Synthogy Software. IF you're local to the Cincinati area I'd be glad to install it for you and help you get it all set up.


PM me if you're interested, thanks.

Received the Ivory II upgrade in the mail and dropped the price. I want this gone so I can get some Christmas money to buy gifts for people! First post edited accordingly and is now up to date.

The upgrade REQUIRES that you have the previous version installed.

And BTW: It is illegal to just buy the update version and not having the previous version or sell the previous version after installing the update version. That's the reason why the update is cheaper than a full version, because you already own a previous version.

But the TO sells you both the full Ivory I and the upgrade Ivory II, so your're set!

I know this is an old thread, but -
I have Ivory II Grand Pianos - the three grand pianos, Boesendorfer, Steinway D, and Yamaha C7.
Since I've sold my VPC1 and bought an MP11, I no longer use them, and would like to sell them, with the iLok (this is the only thing on the iLok).
My understanding is that I can't actually transfer ownership of the Ivory, but if you have the iLok, that's all you need to run it on any computer.
I'd like to sell the whole works for $200 if anybody is interested (it's about $400 for the software and the iLok, according to the Synthogy website).
If anyone's interested, please PM me and we'll work it out.

That's interesting the Mp11 must be so much improved on sound that it's better now than the Synthogy ivorys software.

Dear EP,

The license agreement states that the registered user of the product is only permitted to use it. When you buy a piece of software, you are given a license to use the product in your own recordings, ect according to the license agreement. The software therefore is not owned by the buyer. Synthogy does not permit license transfers so I must kindly say that attempts to sell the product is breaking these terms.

You can email Synthogy directly at support@synthogy.com to see if any exceptions can be made however the agreement does not allow the product to be sold/transferred to another user.

OK, seems kind of harsh but I'll hang onto it unless I can get an OK from them.
I guess I thought if someone had the iLok key they could use it. My bad.
Thanks for the heads up.

Oh dear - that sounds a bit of a rum do. I think EWQL is the same - you can't legally transfer the license of ownership.

But if you buy a house or a car or a piano, you're not legally bound to be stuck with it forever.

And this is not always the case with music software, either. Native Instruments allows the transfer of ownership, therefore legitimizing the second hand market in their instruments. It works very well - you sell after decommissioning your license, which leaves the software free to be licensed by the new buyer.

Yep - EWQLP is the same.

EDIT: Here's an idea - degrade the product slightly when it is sold, to simulate the ageing of a hardware product. smile This would prevent the endless circulation of a 100% pristine product. :P (I think Pianoteq limits the number of license transfers - that's more sensible)

Greg.

No, it is not illegal. It is simply a contract violation. The only thing the law provides is a forum for the aggrieved party to file suit for damages.

Ivory could very well be the greatest thing in the world but for this reason alone I have zero interest in it. There's one copy that won't be in permanent rotation - mission accomplished Synthology.

I don't play anymore so I'm done with the software that I purchased from original poster of this topic. Selling Ivory I, II upgrade and the iLok key. Asking $150 shipped OBO.

As the OP said, the login name on the iLok can't be changed but I'll reset to a temp password for you and you can change the contact details (actual name, email, password, etc) once you receive it.

Thx
