Shion Tamura from Media Integration, IK's Japanese distributor, wanted to share his experience and thoughts about the recent events in Japan: "We felt the ground shake heavily even in Tokyo at 2:46 p.m. on March 11, but it was only after we had returned home and watched the TV news that we realized the amount of devastation. We send our heartfelt sympathies to the people who were directly hit by the massive earthquake and tsunami. At the same time, we are moved to see people trying to keep their spirits up and willing to help each other. We see teenagers spreading tips on how to save energy and make a difference. We see professional musicians making a song every day and uploading it to be listened for free.The importance of music is bigger than ever at a time like this. So, we felt really glad when we heard IK Multimedia would run a special promotion with a donation for the victims. The support and thoughts from fellow musicians around the world mean a lot to us. We want to extend a big Arigato to everyone for your enthusiastic support." Pricing and Availability:
