Ingrooves founder Robb McDaniels took over as CEO of Beatport in 2017.
In December 2020, Beatport announced it had acquired UK-based company Loopmasters for an undisclosed fee.
With that acquisition, Beatport ingested the UK firm’s two consumer brands – Loopcloud (which provides sound packs via a subscription service) and Plugin Boutique (which sells music plug-ins).
At the time, Robb McDaniels said: “Matt Pelling and the entire Loopmasters team are world-class people who have built amazing products for the producer community that simply belong in our ecosystem.
“The phenomenal growth of Plugin Boutique, the leading global seller of virtual instrument plug-ins, and the recent launch of Loopcloud, an innovative subscription service for the samples market, are a testament to the talent of their team, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the Beatport family.”Music Business Worldwide
