Launched in 1996 in Modeno Italy, IK Multimedia set out with the mission of bringing the high-quality sound of classic analog gear fully into the digital realm. Their core objective was to find a solution to the question, can we “emulate electronic circuits using DSP algorithms” that will “feed an audio signal through the computer and get the same sound?” 

Ultimate, the answer to this question was a resounding “Yes!” IK Multimedia’s first piece of gear emulated a vintage Abbey Road console – a nod to their longstanding goal of bringing the power of classic, legendary products to musicians in a way that is simple, inspirational and incredibly affordable.

The IK Multimedia company motto “Musicians First” is a perfect illustration of their mission manifest. The IK Multimedia team were musicians first and foremost. From the engineers and software designers to the marketing and sales team, every product is designed from the perspective of a musician, “Would we use this ourselves?” This means that they only design and create products created from the perspective of musicians, with the objective of making each product easy-to-use and accessible for musicians of all stages and styles.
