Anaheim, CA (January 21, 2004)–Digidesign, a division of Avid Technology, Inc., announced at last week’s NAMM Show that it has acquired the assets of Bomb Factory Digital, Inc., a manufacturer of real-time audio DSP effects for the Digidesign Pro Tools platform. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Renowned for emulating the sound and look of vintage studio processors, Bomb Factory’s plug-ins have amassed a loyal following among customers ranging from Grammy award-winning musical artists to major broadcasters to top-tier video game developers. In the near future, Digidesign expects to announce its plans for deploying the Bomb Factory assets across the Pro Tools product line.
“Our acquisition of Bomb Factory underscores Digidesign’s commitment to deliver the most powerful creative options available to Pro Tools customers,” said David Lebolt, Avid vice president and Digidesign general manager. “By providing these classic processing plug-ins, as well as continuing to work closely with our thriving third-party community, we will offer our users tremendous variety and unrivaled audio processing quality. Pro Tools customers will benefit from the continued availability and support of these high-quality plug-ins as our platform grows and evolves.”
Bomb Factory co-founder and president Erik Gavriluk commented, “My partner Dave Amels and I are proud of the great digital audio processing products we’ve created for the Pro Tools community, and we’re especially pleased that these products will now be even more closely linked with the world’s preeminent provider of digital audio equipment to audio engineers everywhere, from high-end professionals to home studio buffs.”
