Oral History Information
Enrico Iori founded IK Multimedia in 1996 with his friend and partner Davide Barbi. Starting as a software company and becoming a pioneer during the growth of computer music led to today’s full in-the-box DAW systems. IK Multimedia was an early leader in their field as one of the first developers of real-time audio processing, analog-modeling and virtual instrument software and plug-ins. The company branched into hardware applications and evolved rapidly, becoming a leader in modern, mobile music making and covering multiple musical categories, with innovative and "musicians first" audio interfaces.
