Professional multitracking and MIDI
For uncompromising 24-bit/192kHz sound quality production live or in studio, ACID Pro 7 software has an expanded set of features for maximum audio performance. Whether users are recording in the studio or creating MIDI-based studio sequences, ACID Pro 7 software is the optimal platform for reliable multitrack production. MIDI has been bolstered in ACID Pro 7, as well, with real time MIDI processing and precise control over MIDI events. Use track envelopes to automate and modify MIDI controller data over time. Other features let users apply real time MIDI quantization, create drum patterns, edit MIDI event lists, and step record. ACID Pro 7 users can freeze MIDI tracks that are routed to multiple soft synths and render them as .wav files to save CPU processing power and increase productivity during a session.
Mixing and editing
ACID Pro 7 software has a dedicated mixing console for a flexible and efficient recording environment. Specify routing, assign audio effects, and use external effects processors with tracks and busses. ACID Pro 7 software also supports control surface automation and channel tracking for devices such as the Mackie Control and Frontier Design TranzPort. The new mixing console visually represents audio signals in a project and provides additional routing options. This allows for a more flexible and efficient in-studio recording environment. The mixing console provides an integrated view of all tracks and busses in an ACID Pro project with the appearance of a traditional hardware-based mixer.

Transform loops and MIDI tracks into fresh, new sounds with powerful quantization tools. Use the Chopper window to create drum fills, stutters, and DJ-style effects.

Perfect for Me
by Verdict from Seattle, WAThis is a great program that is very deep while also keeping to its roots and being easy to use. I work with hip hop and this is a great program for that because all of your loops and samples sync up ... read more [+]to a master tempo, and with the loop preview, its easy to try out different ideas. The Midi sequencer is very easy to use and edit, applying different grooves and quantization, etc... Editing is also incredibly easy and fast. I picked it up very quickly because I am a recently graduated college student and editing in Acid Pro is very similar to editing a paper in microsoft word, which I have a lot of experience with. Where this program's strength really lies though is the main screen where all the action happens. Audio tracks are right next to midi tracks, the mixer is right below that, and windows explorer is just to the left of the mixer so you can import your files quickly. These windows can also easily be stretched and resized depending on which part of production you are currently working on. With everything on one screen like this, its much easier to stay focused and not be overly confused by numerous intimidating submenus and stuff. I like the way I write songs with this program and with vst support, I can mix and master inside Acid. Last but definitely not least, the included software is great; especially the garritan aria player - very realistic and inspiring orchestra and other instrument samples. I actually end up using the free sounds that came with the aria player I think more often than the numerous patches inside my other favorite program, reason 4.

Fun and Easy to USE :) :) :) :)
by Humberto Cruz from 10 Miles from Down Town Tampa Town !!Since I only work with loops all I have to say is that this software is Super Easy to use a complete loop base music creation setup. I'll admit that Sony needs to further enhance their original plugin... read more [+]s... I my own opinion they are for the Digital Kids!! I originally started using this software back in version 3 and it has come a Very Long Way... especially the improvement of the sound with version 7.
