As a result of this deal, Cakewalk gains exclusive publishing and distribution rights to all Ultrafunk technologies, including the Sonitus:fx plug-in pack. Support and future updates for registered Ultrafunk product users will be handled directly through Cakewalk. In addition, registered Ultrafunk users will now become registered Cakewalk customers, eligible for future offers on Cakewalk products and upgrades.

The Sonitus:fx plug-in pack is a suite of 10 plug-ins, including a stereo compressor, stereo delay, multiband parametric EQ, noise gate, modulator, multiband compressor, phaser, reverb, surround sound processor and wah-emulator.

"The acquisition of Ultrafunk products and technologies will translate into more functionality in select Cakewalk products and provide our customers with more choices and flexibility in expanding their studios," commented Michael Hoover, VP of product marketing for Cakewalk. "The Sonitus:fx pack also provides a great-sounding, low CPU-resource effects solution."

"After a difficult period for Ultrafunk, we decided that the only way our flagship product could survive was to find a company willing to take over all development and sales. We truly believe that Cakewalk is the best home for our plug-ins and customers," commented Ultrafunk producer Rune Johnsrud.
