Apple has reportedly acquired Camel Audio, the music plug-in and effect maker that still commands a sizable clout when it comes to audiophiles and professional music makers. Details of the acquisition were found on corporate registry site Companies House, Macrumorsreports.According to the documents Camel Audio’s office address has been changed to Apple’s London address. Furthermore Camel Audio’s director Heather Joy Morrison has been reappointed as Apple Lawyer, which further strengthens the evidence that points out at Apple acquiring Camel Audio.
Camel Audio is well known for its sound libraries, wide range of plug-ins, synthesizers, and audio effects made available by the Alchemy software. The intriguing fact is that Camel Audio announced its closure in January thanking users for extending support and also recommending them to download all of their purchases so that they can continue to use them.
The Alchemy Synth software was last found retailing for $249, post which it was pulled down from the store last month without citing exact reasons. It further also said that the IAP’s and sound libraries will not be available for purchase. Camel Audio fans were spot on inspeculating an alleged takeover of the company.
It is quite possible that Apple will incorporate the company’s technology whilst building a future version of Logic Pro X, which too was showcased in the Apple iPad Oscars ad video. Alchemy boasts more than 1,000 sounds, samples sizing up to 5.5GB, an additive re-synthesis engine, spectral re-synthesis, and a virtual analog synthesizer amongst many other options.
