ProAction swallows Clares softwareBy Chris Williams. Published: 19th Dec 2002, 20:45:55 | Permalink | Printable
Resistance is futile. MIDI music app Rhapsody 4 to get relaunchYou can't outrun APDL and ProAction it seems. Their accquired software hoard just got bigger this week as they've reportedly absorbed Clares Micro Supplies' current range of RISC OS software products, gobbling up software so fast that it even caught Composition author Rob Davison unawares. But don't you worry, there's good to come out of this product range assimilation, or so we hope. Virtually promising price slashings, we're told by ProAction in their press release that they're taking a "good long look at each product with regards to possibilities for the future".
Golden oldies Clares started out in 1981 and has since developed numerous acclaimed software titles for Acorn users and their machines. They've seen it all basically, from the BBC Microcomputer through to the A5000 and then on to the RiscPC, sticking with the platform after Acorn collapsed in 1998, witnessing the release of RISC OS 4 and then onto present day. The Clares range includes Schema, Composition and Rhapsody 4. Notable recent applications that ProAction have given their make over treatment to includes EasyC++ and Desktop Repton.
To jump start things, ProAction are launching the MIDI enabled music playing, recording, notating and printing application Rhapsody 4 on the 3rd January 2003 and retailing it especially at half the price Clares were previously selling it. You need to contact APDL for more information, links given below.
