    Beatport joins forces with one of the world’s largest homes for production sample packs.
    At Beatport, we are pleased to announce our acquisition of a company that has established itself as the world’s top seller in music production software and digital tools, Loopmasters.

    Established in 2003 to sell sound packs to the professional audio market and function as an online store for producers using Digital Audio Workstations (DAW), the company has become a vital online outlet for music producers of all sounds and skill-levels. Offering a vast amount of VST Plugins, virtual instruments, synth presets, and music plugins through Plugin Boutique, along with cloud-based sound packs through its Loopcloud subscription service, Loopmasters is a seamless one-stop-shop for all your music production needs.

    For the last eighteen months, Beatport and Loopmasters have collaborated on several strategic marketing initiatives, such as our remix competitions, VST coupons and giveaways, ReConnect livestreams, and more. And we can’t wait to show you what’s in store.

    Robb McDaniels, CEO of Beatport, said about the new partnership: “Matt Pelling (Loopmasters’ CEO) and the entire Loopmasters team are world-class people who have built amazing products for the producer community that simply belong in our ecosystem. The phenomenal growth of Plugin Boutique, the leading global seller of virtual instrument plug-ins, and the recent launch of Loopcloud, an innovative subscription service for the samples market, are a testament to the talent of their team, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the Beatport family.”

    Yeah what does this mean - will the personal information be referred, will the shop itself change, etc?
    PB is my favorite online shop for audio related software as well. Flawless experience so far and nice sales and promotions and freebies. Let's hope it stays that way.

    It's an unexpected news in "covid" time and could change the business view of other plugin and sample resellers.
    Nothing more, nothing less.

    1) It is unexpected news.
    2) "could" change the "business view" of other sellers.
    No more? No less?
    Ok
    That is all that can be said on the subject.
    Please close and lock this thread. :rofl:
