Apple reportedly buys music plug-in and effect maker Camel Audio

Apple appears to have acquired London-based maker of audio plug-ins and effects, Camel Audio, signaling its intent to bolster its own professional audio software such as Logic Pro X and the consumer-focused music making app GarageBand.

As noted by MacRumors, the revelation came indirectly via a change in the company’s listing on the UK government’s Companies House website.

The company now lists a new business address which is closely associated with Apple’s own UK offices and has replaced all members of its Board of Directors with Apple’s legal team member Heather Joy Morrison

According to information published on corporate registry site Companies House [PDF document], Camel Audio’s new address is 100 New Bridge Street in London, where Apple’s UK offices are located as well.

Camel Audio Alchemy app

Camel Audio is behind some of the most popular plug-ins, audio effects, sound libraries and software synthesizers.

It’s interesting that the audio effects firm said back in January that it would be shutting down operation and removing its award-winning Alchemy software for desktop and mobile.

The company said existing users would be permitted to re-download their previous purchases and access email support until July 7, 2015.
