Ableton Has Acquired Cycling '74, Developers of Max for Live
If you’re an Ableton Live user, you’ve undoubtedly came across Max For Live (M4L), a development platform within Live that lets users customize Ableton devices to their hearts content. Well, the company behind M4L, Cycling ’74, has officially been acquired by Ableton and we can’t wait to see how this partnership plays out.
David Zicarelli, the CEO of Cycling ’74, comments on the recent acquisition:
Ableton and Cycling ’74 will continue to operate independently, while we look for ways to collaborate and support each other. Perhaps most importantly, all of your friends here (including me) will be working as usual to serve the Max community, just as we have for the past 19 years. […]
Given how integral M4L has become in the Ableton Live community, it is easy to see how this partnership could serve as a great opportunity and leap forward for further developments of the M4L environment.
