Modena, Italy (September 2, 2005)–IK Multimedia recently supported the creative competition and charity by donating prizes to the winner of UK’s The Riffathon, which took place at the end of July at the Hammersmith Apollo theatre in London. All the proceeds from the event went to the A.B.C. Trust, a charity set up to help disadvantaged children in Brazil.
IK’s professional music production software, SampleTank 2XL, AmpliTube, AmpliTube LIVE and T-RackS, was given to the winner of the Studio Recording section, Carl Gethin. Gethin happily received his prizes presented by legendary musicians Jimmy Page, Brian May and Dan Hawkins from the “The Darkness.”
