Who Owns Who? (Companies)

Hey Guys,

It feels like I'm always the last one to know about which monster company owns which company.

Maybe we could start a little list of "acquistions" to keep people in the know.
I'll start with some easy ones.

β€’ Sennheiser -> Neumann
β€’ ATI Group -> API
β€’ Avid -> Digidesign, M-Audio, Pinnacle

And the new ones...
β€’ SAE -> AMS/Neve
β€’ PG -> Solid State Logic

On a smaller scaale, what was once "Mark IV", now using the Telex name, owns Electrovoice, Midas, Klark Teknik, RTS (the broadcast intercom folks), and Vega.

At one point Altec-Lansing was part of Mark IV, but that's spun off into it's own orbit now.

Pinnacle bought Steinberg, then Yamaha bought Steinberg just before Avid bought Pinnacle.
