Announced at Winter NAMM, IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality, after a successful cooperation creating SampleTank LE products (Sonic Synth, OmniSynth and eROMS), have announced a strategic alliance to create a wide range of innovative products.

“We’ve always found the works of Sonic Reality to be among the best in the sound-development industry,” commented CEO/founder of IK Multimedia Enrico Iori. “I can’t imagine a better company to team up with for making the best sample-based products possible.”

“Being able to work with a top-notch software and sound-development team like IK Multimedia gives us the ability to carry out a vision to make unique and outstanding software instruments,” said Dave Kerzner, CEO/founder of Sonic Reality. “Between the two companies, across the globe, we have one of the largest and most diverse in-house sample archives anywhere.”

The first result of this newly formed alliance will be the release of Sonik Synth 2, a powerful synth workstation plug-in. These modules will work in all of the major plug-in platforms, including VST, RTAS, DXi and AudioUnits on the Mac and Windows. IK Multimedia will also distribute worldwide the new Sonik Capsules ranges from Sonic Reality. The Sonik Capsules are multiformat sample libraries and SampleTank 2 LE module plug-ins in one package. Each focused instrument sample collection allows the user to employ these sounds with SampleTank 2 and other common plug-in formats and other popular sample formats.
