Here we have IK Multimedia Home Recoridng Equipment. Way back in 1996, two Italian engineers got together to solve a problem in a recording studio (Later to form the IK Multimedia company). Could you get the sound of classic analog gear from a computer? One of them said (in Italian, of course) 'Could we emulate electronic circuits using DSP algorithms and feed an audio signal through the computer and get the same sound?' The answer was yes, the piece of gear they emulated was a vintage Abbey Road console, and a company was born.Although that's a pretty simplified version of how IK Multimedia came to be, it reflects the driving philosophy behind all of their products: give musicians the tools they want/need to be creative and productive. Recreate classic legendary products in the digital world and make them available to all musicians. But make them simple. Make them both inspirational and affordable. And make them for Musicians First.
