CME is a digital musical instrument (DMI) brand originally owned by Central Music Co in Beijing, established by Mr Zhao Yitian and his partners in 1993. Since 2005, CME products have been distributed worldwide in 56 countries. Apart from CME products, Central Music Co also distributes professional audio systems and DMI from other countries in the Chinese market.
CME is one of the top professional DMI brands in China and is highly reputed in the global music production industry. It has famous musicians as its endorsers. In early 2012, the CME board decided to spin off a company to focus on their mobile DMI product line and further expand into the international market. The plan was to incorporate a company in Singapore and transfer the CME product line business, including the brand, product ownerships and intellectual properties, from Central Music Co. to the new company CME Pte. Ltd.
This was incorporated in Singapore in July 2012. Currently, CME's headquarters is located in Singapore with representatives in Beijing and Taipei (China), Nice (France), Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and Vancouver (Canada).
