For about a year now Apple’s Macintosh Products Guide has been partnering with select retail companies on its Web site. Until now, most have been retailers that many Mac users would visit on their own, but with Apple, the companies have been offering bundle packages for interested users.
Apple has added three specialized retailers to its stable of partners that will be of specific interest to musicians. Joining Apple are Sweetwater, AudioMIDI and Musician’s Friend.
The three new retailers will be showcasing products for musicians including Oxygen 8; DigiDesign’s Mbox; 828 FireWire audio interface from MOTU; Cubase; Emagic Big Box; Propellerheads’ Reason; Yamaha EX5R Tone Generator; and a variety of other products.
Sweetwater, AudioMIDI and Musician’s Friend join established Mac retailers CompUSA, MacMall, MacConnection, MacZone, J&R’s OutPost, ClubMac and the Apple Online Store in the online program. MacConnection also updated its offerings on the retail Web site today.
