Since the founding in the year 1996 the mission of IK MULTIMEDIA is to help all those producing, listening and playing music of a new generation with revolutionary software instruments. In 1997 the GrooveMaker was introduced, one of the first groundbreaking loop based remix programs for DJ´s and musicians. In 1999 the IK MULTIMEDIA T-RackS proved that high professional computer mastering solutions can be easy to use by everybody. The SampleTank first emerged in 2001 and was on of the first sample based sound modules with integrated effects and a wide variety of available sounds in form of instrument plug-In.
A year later IK MULTIMEDIA AmpliTube revolutionised the way of recording guitar tracks in a studio, by offering the first Plug-In with complete guitar amp and effect rig for every computer platform. The arrival of the STRETCH technology in SampleTank 2 lifted sampling to the next level for IK MULTIMEDIA, enabling an unmatched flexibility in manipulating sounds, never before available with an instrument Plug-In. 2005 the workstation consept Sonik Synth 2, Studiophonik and Miroslav Philharmonik was developed further. The synth-, studio- and orchestral workstations are the result of the partnership with the excellent sound designer Sonic Reality. IK MULTIMEDIA announced a range of new hardware in 2006 to take the combination of hard and software to the next level.
