M-Audio seemed to be partnering with 1/3 of all companies on the show floor. They now distribute Glaresoft iDrum, an Audio Units drum machine that works standalone in OS X and Windows; GForce Minimonsta, another Minimoog tribute, but with a few innovations; and the most excellent iZotope line of plug-ins is, including the Ozone3 mastering suite, Trash multi-band distortion, and Spectron signal processor. www.m-audio.com

Roland and Universal Audio have agreed that UA will develop, market, and sell plug-in emulations of classic Roland processors for UA’s UAD-1 DSP card. The first three releases are the Dimension D Chorus, CE-1 Chorus, and RE-201 Space Echo. www.uaudio.com

IK Multimedia has collaborated with Ampeg to create the Ampeg SVX plug-in, which emulates 20 Ampeg bass amps and also incorporates a configurable stompbox pedalboard. IK products are also being bundled with E-Mu’s digital audio systems for PC desktops and laptops, as well as Mackie’s Tracktion software. www.ikmultimedia.com
