Indie music software studio joins ever-growing list of trade association members

FXpansion, a London-based indie music software firm, has become the latest member of the UK games industry trade association Tiga.

The company is best known for software like BFD and BFD 2, as well as the 2009 DCAM: Synth Squad synthesiser kit.

“Tiga has a reputation within the industry as an influential advocate,” said FXpansion MD Angus Hewlett.

“Their political efforts regarding Games Tax Relief and R&D tax credits have been particularly impressive and we are keen get involved and provide an additional perspective to help shape Tiga’s proposals.

“Furthermore, many of Tiga’s members are users of our software so FXpansion’s membership will provide a valuable and direct opportunity to communicate with these organisations and individuals and get our message out within the industry.”

Tiga CEO Richard Wilson expanded on the point, saying: “Tiga is delighted to welcome Fxpansion to the Tiga community and look forward to working with them to ensure that the industry receives the right support from Government to continue to flourish.”
