Apple has acquired the German based specialist music software manufacturer, Emagic. Emagic will become a wholly owned division of Apple and will concentrate on the development of new products for professionals. The financial details of the acquisition have not been publicly disclosed.
Emagic’s music software is used by musicians worldwide. The company’s most popular application is called Logic and is used by over 200,000 musicians. Mac based products account for around 65% of Emagic’s revenues. As a result of its acquisition, Emagic is planning to cease production of its Windows based products by the end of September.
The acquisition of Emagic is the latest in a string of acquisitions made by Apple in recent months. Apple has acquired Prismo Graphics, Silicon Grail and Zayante since April.
