At the Summer NAMM show, Tascam announced that it has acquired the stock of the Texas-based NemeSys Music Technology Inc. for an undisclosed amount. NemeSys, known for its popular software-based sampling and music production tools for the PC platform, GigaSampler and GigaStudio, will be immediately distributed under the Tascam brand name.
Tascam also announced that it has signed the principal software engineers and previous owners of NemeSys to a long-term employment agreement in order to ensure continuing development of the "Giga" platform.
"We are tremendously excited by the possibilities inherent in Tascam's acquisition of NemeSys," said TEAC VP Gene Joly. "We're certain that the addition of Tascam's distribution and marketing strength will allow these amazing tools to be even more broadly embraced by musicians and audio professionals around the world."
The newly expanded Tascam line will now feature all of NemeSys' current products, including GigaStudio 160, GigaStudio 96, GigaSampler 64, GigaSampler LE and NemeSys' sound libraries.
