ROLI acquires JUCE software framework

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

ROLI has announced the acquisition of JUCE, an acclaimed C++ framework which is used by leading audio companies such as Korg, Pioneer, Arturia, Akai Professional, and M­Audio.

ROLI acquires JUCE

The move comes just months after closing a record Series A of $16.5m, and will enable ROLI to both expand the Seaboard’s compatibility with existing 3rd party software, and develop JUCE as a leading toolkit for creating next generation interfaces for music and beyond. Julian (“Jules”) Storer, founder of Raw Materials Software which makes JUCE, will be joining the ROLI team as Head of Software Architecture and will continue as the Editor­in­Chief for all things JUCE.

ROLI CEO and Founder, Roland Lamb, made the announcement today at SLUSH, one of the largest gatherings for European startups and investors. Lamb said “At ROLI, our larger vision is to reshape interaction. To do that, we need to transform every technological link from where people create inputs, to where computers create outputs. That’s a tall order, but acquiring and investing in JUCE is our most significant step towards this challenging goal since we invented and developed the Seaboard.“

For ROLI, the acquisition will accelerate the process of creating broad compatibility between the Seaboard and leading audio applications. The acquisition will also enable Storer to continue to focus on building out the architecture of JUCE and leading the development of groundbreaking features like the Projucer, the first real­time C++ compiler which he demonstrated at C++Now. Storer commented “We’re tremendously excited about the creative possibilities that will be unleashed as we build not only new features, but better documentation, code examples, and templates that will help to establish JUCE as the leading C++ framework, not just for audio, but for a wide range of diverse applications, from graphics to gaming to embedded systems.”

ROLI has created an advisory panel of industry leaders to help guide the vision for JUCE’s development, including David Zicarelli, Founder and CEO of Cycling74, makers of MaxMSP, and Martin Robinson, Programme Leader at UWE Bristol and author of ‘Getting Starting with JUCE’. “Our first goal will be to hear from the community of JUCE developers to get a better understanding of what they need and what’s most useful,” Lamb said. “We’re thrilled that this acquisition positions us to play a bigger role in the open source and creative development communities.” A number of JUCE meetups are planned around the world, starting tomorrow at IRCAM, followed by events in London, Berlin and New York in the coming weeks.

Tempo Rubato releases Historic Harpsichords – Ruckers 1628 for iOS

Tempo Rubato has launched Ruckers 1628, a superbly-sampled recreation of one of the greatest and most valuable harpsichords of all time.

Tempo Rubato Ruckers 1628

Flemish instrument-building family Ruckers need little in the way of introduction to those in the know; suffice to say, their highly-valued (and valuable) historic harpsichords are akin to Stradivarius violins built by the Stradivari family. You could even say that the harpsichord was the ‘synthesizer’ of its time, without which influential early musical stylings such as baroque and renaissance would never have emerged.

Needless to say, 1628 must have been an especially excellent year for the Ruckers family, for the Ruckers 1628 is now one of the greatest and most valuable harpsichords of all time. Those thinking that they will never get to experience the sheer musical joy of playing this two-manual harpsichord built by master craftsman Andreas Ruckers (The Elder) in Antwerp way back in 1628 should surely think again.

Thanks to the definitive development work of TempoRubato in collaboration with sample content provider par excellence realsamples, now you can conveniently enjoy playing an authentic recreation of the Ruckers 1628 from the comfort of their favourite iOS device whenever and wherever you like!

Historic Harpsichords – Ruckers 1628 for iOS is available for purchase for $9.99 USD.
