IK Multimedia has announced a new strategic software alliance with SAE Institute in the U.S. Now SAE audio school students who begin the Audio Diploma course in July 2009 at any SAE Institute campus in the US will receive IK Multimedia's Total Studio 2 Bundle as part of the Laptop Production Package at no additional cost to their regular package price.
The 12 included software programs in IK's Total Studio Bundle 2 are intended to enhance the production and processing ability of the current SAE recording, sequencing and mixing bundle. SAE's students now have access to IK's virtual instrument and FX plug-ins, including T-RackS 3 Mastering and Mixing software, and most of IK's "Powered by SampleTank" and "Powered by AmpliTube" products.
Udo Hoppenworth, Director of SAE US Operations remarked on the partnership, "That SAE institute and IK Multimedia have partnered to offer our students this level of processing as part of our Production Package is definitely exciting. IK has held many seminars and User Group meetings at all of our US campuses. This new software addition is really going to extend how we work together in advancing the tools we have to educate our students. To mark the occasion, we've decided to maintain the current package price, so the Diploma classes starting in July will be getting Total Studio 2 at no extra cost."
IK Multimedia US Managing Director, Gary Kerzner said, "To have the opportunity to work with SAE and provide an award-winning software bundle to audio students at the start of training for their professional music career is exciting! We are honored to be working with SAE, and look forward to being an integral partner enhancing the future of music education for these students and the growing community of audio professionals."
Kicking off the announcement of this new partnership, IK Multimedia will be joining SAE at select Open Houses, Demos, and Studio Tours, starting with dates in the following cities:
- May 30th, 2-5PM: Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, and San Francisco.
