Cycling ’74, creators of Max and Max For Live, today announced that they have been acquired by Ableton.
The companies have ‘shared DNA’, with Ableton Live originating in a Max patch and about a decade of collaboration on Max For Live.
The companies plan to maintain independent operations, but with closer collaboration.
Here’s the text of the announcement from Cycling ’74 CEO David Zicarelli:
On behalf of my co-workers at Cycling ’74, I am pleased to share the news of our acquisition by our good friends at Ableton.
