Image-Line has announced that the Deckadance DJ music application and rights have been acquired by Gibson.
Image-Line’s CFO Frank Van Biesen states, “Growing Deckadance any further required our expanding into hardware development, which would have diverted attention from our core business of developing FL Studio, our highly successful music production application and related software. With Gibson Brands building new products around Deckadance, not only will existing Deckadance customers receive ongoing support, but with Gibson’s proven hardware expertise Deckadance enthusiasts can look forward to a bright future.”
The core of Deckadance’s software team will remain intact to ensure consistency in future development, as well as make sure that future innovations are consistent with what users love about Deckadance. Because the sale was a friendly and strategic move for both companies, Image-Line and Gibson will collaborate closely to create the smoothest transition possible.
According to Gibson Brands CEO and Chairman Henry Juszkiewicz, “We have many exciting plans for Stanton, and projects that will rejuvenate the DJ scene in the years to come. Acquiring Deckadance is a huge step forward in that direction. We’re grateful to Image-Line for creating a strong foundation, and can’t wait to build additional innovations on that foundation.”
