Speaking at the recent D10 conference, Tim Cook said Apple is still in the business of buying companies, but he doesn’t want to announce these accusations unless necessary. According to a recent Tech Crunch report, Italian startup Redmatica may be the target of one of these quiet buyouts. The source of this acquisition information is Italian blog Fanpage, which found a paper trail in the Italian Communications Regulatory Authority (Agcom).

Redmatica specializes in music-editing software for the Mac. Its website lists several apps including the flagship Keymap Pro 2.3, a sampled instrument editor. Though the details are not known, it’s possible that Apple is purchasing this company to improve its music offerings like Logic Pro and GarageBand.
