M-Audio, a leading manufacturer and distributor of hardware and software for computer- centric musicians, is proud to announce an exclusive worldwide deal with German manufacturer Wizoo, the creator of groundbreaking software instruments such as Virtual Guitarist and Hypersonic. Under the terms of the agreement, M-Audio will distribute Wizoo’s upcoming line of software instruments.
Founded in 1997 as a book publisher and developer of sample CDs, Wizoo was among the pioneers of virtual instruments and created many groundbreaking tools such as Virtual Guitarist, The Grand, Xphraze and Hypersonic released by Steinberg. With the close involvement of former Steinberg owner Manfred Ruerup, Wizoo currently develops its own line of software instruments as well as products and technology for major music manufacturers.
“We’re very excited about our new relationship with Wizoo”, says Adam Castillo, M-Audio’s Marketing Director. “Wizoo’s combination of technology and passion has manifested in some of the best virtual instruments in the world. This exclusive distribution deal further demonstrates M-Audio’s commitment to supplying complete, professional computer-based creative solutions.”
“We’re a small manufacturer with a reputation for innovation and quality, and we want to stay like that and concentrate on our strong points,” says Wizoo CEO Peter Gorges. “That said, we feel the strong need to offer professional marketing, distribution and support services to our users and dealers worldwide–on a large scale. We feel that distribution cooperation with a strong, power-loaded brand like M-Audio is the best conceivable solution for us and our users.”
