Gibson Pro Audio Group to acquire Cakewalk
Gibson Pro Audio Group is about to enter into negotiations with Roland in order to finalize the acquisition of the Cakewalk brand.
Cakewalk should soon be part of the Gibson Pro Audio Group and, in order to develop, support and promote the Cakewalk professional software products, a new TASCAM Professional Software brand will be created.
Cakewalk President Michael Hoover notes, “The world’s most iconic guitar, Gibson’s Les Paul, bears the name of the inventor of multitrack recording—and TASCAM launched a musical revolution by bringing multitrack recording to the masses. The combination will make a fitting home for products developed by Cakewalk.” TASCAM President Yuji Hanabusa states, “The future of recording is an intelligent, intuitive combination of both hardware and software. Cakewalk and TASCAM will have the power to realize this future.”
Gibson adds that the Cakewalk staff and headquarters will remain in Boston as an independent division.
