Apple reportedly has purchased Italy-based music software company Redmatica.
A regulatory filing with the Italian Authority for Communications Guarantees, which was dug up by Fanpage, suggests the deal was approved earlier this week.
CNET has reached out to both Apple and Redmatica for more information, and will update this post when we know more.
Redmatica makes four pieces of audio software, including tools for sampling, editing, and library management. Its primary product is KeyMap Pro, a sampled instruments editor that runs on Apple's OS X.
Apple has acquired several digital music companies in the past. That includes SoundJam MP, which went on to become iTunes. Apple also picked up Emagic the company behind Logic Pro, as well as streaming music service LaLa.com, the latter of which was shelved in 2010.
