Global sales have been moved entirely to the German firm and products such as Sound Forge and ACID can now be found on its web portals.

German software and app manufacturer MAGIX has announced that it has completed the acquisition of a large portion of the Sony Creative Products portfolio, three months after the arrangement was made official.

The VEGAS Pro, Movie Studio, ACID, and Sound Forge products can now be found on the buyer’s web portals. At the same time, global sales were moved entirely to MAGIX.

From now on, the renowned VEGAS Pro and Movie Studio video editing product lines will be sold by MAGIX under the umbrella brand “VEGAS Creative Software“. The website of the same name, vegascreativesoftware.com, went live just a few days ago, and the company will introduce the long-awaited new version VEGAS Pro 14 on September 20.

In the music division, new additions Sound Forge, ACID, and SpectraLayers will be added to MAGIX’ diverse audio portfolio. The software manufacturer is presenting these products together along with Music Maker, Samplitude, and Sequoia at magix-audio.com.

“The acquisition of the Sony Creative Software products is a milestone in the history of MAGIX. We are happy and proud to be able to sell the acquired software worldwide from this moment forward and significantly increase our presence in Asia and North America, including our new development site near Chicago,” said MAGIX CEO Klaus Schmidt. “We have now completed our transition phase in record time with the go-live of vegascreativesoftware.com and the new product portals at magix-audio.com. We are looking forward to wowing users with continuous technical development and establishing our position as one of the leading providers for video, photo, and audio software.”
