The One and Only ACID
Of course, ACID Pro 6 still offers powerful loop creation and manipulation tools, with unlimited audio and MIDI tracks, real-time pitch and tempo matching, and a ton of additional tools. Included with the software are more than 1,000 Sony "Sound Series" loops, plus the Kompakt sample player and a custom sound library.

A Solid Foundation
ACID software is built on rock-solid technology to provide you with an excellent foundation for loop-based music creation. ACID Pro 6 software also features a complete set of tools called Fundamentals - the features you need to produce truly professional results. For example, ACID Pro 6 software has unlimited tracks for audio and MIDI events, real-time pitch and tempo matching, and impressive new Media Manager technology. Media Manager tools let you search, tag, and catalog your loops with incredibly accuracy and efficiency.

Get Organized
Powerful new Media Manager technology offers a more efficient way to manage your ACID Pro 6 project media. Innovative "search and tag" tools allow you to quickly identify loops found on your hard-drive or even within the entire Sony Sound Series Loops & Samples collection - by genre, instrumentation, BPM, or other user-defined and customizable attributes.

Superior Mixing and Editing
New nestable folder tracks enhance project organization and simplify editing. Reverse audio events during playback in real-time. Set up and mix 5.1 channel surround project files for audio and DVD productions. The Beatmapper tool adds tempo information to song-length files including MP3s, so you can remix and combine music loops with existing songs. The Chopper tool creates amazing drum fills, stutters, and DJ-style effects.

Cutting-Edge Audio Effects
Apply over 20 DirectX audio effects, including the new tempo-based effects such as Flange, Amplitude Modulation, and Simple Delay that automatically adjust to project-based tempo changes. You can also create resonant sweeps, dramatic fades, EQ changes, and add effects using automation envelopes. ACID Pro 6 software also natively supports VST effects, expanding the palette of sounds available for music creation. Apply automation and tempo-sync VST effects. Use VST soft synths with multiple busses.

Your Quantization Station
ACID Pro 6 software includes powerful and patent-pending groove quantization technology. Groove Mapping and Groove Cloning can significantly expand your loop collection by morphing existing loops into fresh, new sounds. Beat-match loops and vocal tracks nondestructively in real-time. Quantize disparate loops to a common groove, create new grooves from scratch, apply any number of the supplied grooves, and even extract grooves from existing loops and apply them to other samples.
