Technology with Soul
Emagic Soft and Hardware GmbH was founded in September 1992 by Dr. Gerhard Lengeling, Dipl. Phys., Chris Adam and business manager
Sven Junge, in Hamburg (Germany).
Within a few months, the new concept for computer-based music production, "Logic" (the precursor to "Logic Audio") came to the
marketplace, establishing itself as the foundation stone of Emagic's success in the musical instrument industry for years to
come. Over the ensuing years, the product range has been expanded significantly with a number of innovative hard and software
products, used by over 250.000 commercial and private studios. In pursuing extremely high quality standards and with a constant
customer focussed orientation, Emagic has built a solid reputation as the quality leader in software music production. Intensive
research and development are the center of Emagic's business activity. Emagic is represented in more than 40 countries via its
international distribution network, and employs more than 80 people in Germany. A third of them are highly qualified development
engineers who spend their time furthering existing technologies and working on new solutions for real time audio applications.
In order to better service customers in the Americas, Emagic Incorporated was founded in 1994 in Grass
Valley, California. Since then, Emagic USA Inc. has experienced rapid expansion and success in the territories they service.
Emagic - one of the most successful companies in the field of computer-based music production - was acquired by
Apple Computer Inc, USA in June 2002. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Apple, Emagic will take advantage of the new possibilities
this presents to offer even faster, better products for all users.
