MakeMusic And Garritan To Produce Abbey Road Sound Products

MakeMusic, Inc. (NASDAQ: MMUS) today announced an agreement with London’s Abbey Road Studios to produce a series of Garritan products including libraries featuring sounds associated with the acclaimed recording facility. Under the terms of the unprecedented five-year agreement, MakeMusic will team with Abbey Road Studios to continuously develop new innovations in sound technology.

Abbey Road is the home of the most celebrated recording studios in the world. Within its walls popular music was forever changed through the innovative audio manipulation by the Beatles, Pink Floyd and countless others. Many of the sounds found on iconic recordings from the 1930s to today are the product of the unique collection of instruments, microphones, famed custom analog outboard gear and legendary acoustics of Abbey Road Studios. For the first time ever, MakeMusic plans to create comprehensive, authorized libraries of these sounds.

“Garritan creations are works of art,” said Karen van Lith, MakeMusic CEO. “The combination of Garritan artistry with MakeMusic’s resources and discipline made this multiple product partnership with Abbey Road possible. New sounds ignite the imaginations of the musicians who use them, and the resulting music inspires us all. We are dedicated to the creation of exceptional virtual instrument sounds because we believe they will play an increasing role in the future of digital music.”

Garritan offers an entire family of world-class sound libraries including the industry-changing Garritan Personal Orchestra. These libraries can be used with Finale and other music notation programs, as well as in sequencing and digital audio workstation software.

“Gary Garritan's reputation for quality, fidelity and innovation is a perfect match for Abbey Road Studios as we expand our range of premium sampled instruments,” said Mirek Stiles, head of audio products at Abbey Road Studios. “We look forward to working with Gary and his skilled team in creating a line of beautiful titles that really encapsulate the historic technical excellence and unique acoustic properties of Abbey Road Studios.”
