Apple Acquires Camel Audio
Here’s another acquisition news! Apple has now acquired Camel Audio, a popular instrument and effect plug-in maker, as according to the corporate registry site Companies House. This is double confirmed when Camel Audio’s address is updated to Apple’s London address in 100 New Bridge Street. The sole director of Camel Audio, Heather Joy Morrison, is now listed as Apple’s lawyer.
On 8th January, Camel Audio removed all access to their software from the website. This action wasn’t explained why, and many users and fans of the software expressed speculations on takeover.
While there’s not an apparent reason on to why Apple acquired this company, but it could be that Apple is seeking to incorporate Camel Audio’s technology into a future version of Logic Pro X – a software by Apple designed for professional musicians, or even GarageBand.
Camel Audio is popular for its range of plug ins, effects, sound libraries, and synthesizers. These are available through the company’s Alchemy software. It is priced at US$249 (MYR900) where it includes more than a thousand sounds with more than 5GB worth of samples, spectral resynthesis, with a virtual analog synthesizer. Those who like to create and manipulate audio for unique sounds will surely benefit this!
