Native Instruments makes music production accessible for anyone.

Native Instruments turns computers into musical instruments. As the leading provider of software, hardware and digital services for music production, Native Instruments fundamentally changes the music industry and revolutionises the way people make music. Music production is no longer a system reserved for a privileged few, but is technically and financially accessible for everyone. EMH Partners has been supporting the democratisation of the music industry since its investment in 2017. Following Francisco Partners’ acquisition of a majority shareholding in Native Instruments, EMH continues to support the business as a minority shareholder.
