The team at the London development office of Sibelius software, laid off in August by their American owners Avid, have signed on today with audio pioneers Steinberg. A new London office will open next week.
This is outstandingly good news for Sibelius users, who now have somewhere to go. It should also please the Finn brothers, who tried and failed to buy back their invention from the avid Americans.
Here’s the brief announcement. Watch this space for more.
UPDATE: Hamburg-based Steinberg announce Ben Timms as head of the London R&D team. Daniel Spreadbury will be product marketing manager. this is starting to look like an all-round happy ending (except for Avid).
