IK Multimedia - About us

IK Multimedia - About Us

About us

But enough about us, let's talk about us…

It all began in a small town in northern Italy. Not just any small town, but a town rich in heritage — a heritage of innovation. A town known as the sports car capital of the world, and also known for its exquisite cuisine and as the birthplace of Balsamic Vinegar. And the birthplace of one of the most innovative companies in the music industry - the town of Modena, Italy.

measuring a vintage piece of gear

Way back in 1996 — around the time electricity was discovered and cell phones were the size of your average 4-slot toaster — two Italian engineers got together to solve a problem in a recording studio. 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 came to be, it reflects the driving philosophy behind all of our 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 aspirational and affordable. And make them for Musicians First.

Sound familiar?

Our company motto, "Musicians First," actually has a couple of different meanings.

First, we're musicians. And we're musicians first — engineers, software designers, business specialists, marketing and sales pros, warehouse experts, logistics managers and overall nice guys and girls second. What does that mean to you? It means we only design and create products that we would use. It's a very simple philosophy, but there's beauty in simplicity, and it actually guides our product development and production processes. And it works extremely well for us and for you.

So that's our philosophy for operation. And we've been doing it longer and better than any other company in the market. You see, we don't "exceed" expectations at IK. We create completely new ones by creating tools that inspire new levels of creativity. Here are some interesting factoids about IK along with some milestones.

We'll keep it brief so you can get back to creating music.

What in the world?

Here's what we do: IK Multimedia designs and manufactures apps, software, hardware and accessory products for music creation and playback on computers and mobile devices.

Not to brag, but we do it so well that some of the top companies in the world of musical instruments chose us to partner with to bring unique and innovative solutions to market. And when we say top companies, we mean iconic brands like Fender®, MESA/Boogie®, Ampeg®, Orange® Soldano® Gallien Kruger®, Seymour Duncan® and more.

Custom Shop Brands and Collections

Plus, when it comes to software and apps, we also give players access to the official sound of two guitar icons: Jimi Hendrix and Slash.

Scores of artists, engineers and producers have used IK's AmpliTube, SampleTank, Philharmonik, T-RackS and more to create or perform the most popular music of our time including the Rolling Stones, Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, AC/DC, Eminem, Black Eyed Peas and Coldplay, 2013 Oscar® winner producer Paul Epworth (James Bond Skyfall movie).

The hard (ware) way

IK started manufacturing electronic hardware accessories for computers in 2006 and in 2010 evolved into the production of app-enhanced iOS accessories. To make sure you can actually get these great products, IK now operates a new electronics manufacturing facility headquartered in Modena, Italy that is fully equipped for hi-tech manufacturing using SMT technology.

Now over half of our hardware products are made in our own factory in Italy by our discriminating Italian craftsmen and engineers with the highest production and manufacturing standards guaranteed by our 100%-tested production. What does that mean? It means that EVERY product that leaves our factory is guaranteed to operate correctly, so you don't have to worry about a product that doesn't perform. Refreshing, isn't it?

 

Mobile Music Revolution

Mobile Music Revolution

So here's the cool thing about what we do… we create products musicians use to create music whenever and wherever the inspiration strikes them. And we do it with tools that are simple to use. Slash uses our stuff on tour when he's in his hotel room at 4am. You can too. In fact (again, not to brag), we've pioneered the mobile music segment of the market with our range of 50 accessories and apps for the iPhone/iPod/iPad. IK was the first company to introduce the wonderful world of mobile guitar tone (AmpliTube and AmpliTube Fender® for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad) and a cost-effective, professional way to connect a guitar to those devices, the iRig audio interface for guitarists and bassists. Today we make the most extensive range of mobile solutions for musicians of all types - keyboard players, guitarists & bassists, vocalists and DJs.
