Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

The fast and easy way to build a song!

ACID Pro 7 represents an incredible value for the PC-based studio. To start the creative process, you get over 3,000 loops and 1,000 MIDI files right out of the box - and that's in addition to a potent effects rack powered by iZotope and great-sounding virtual instruments, including Native Instruments' Guitar Combos software and Submersible Music's KitCore. What's more, control over MIDI data is better than it's ever been, as ACID Pro 7 sports real-time MIDI automation, quantization, and deep editing functionality. Plus, ACID Pro 7 boasts a new time-stretching feature.

Sony ACID Pro 7 at a Glance:
  • What you get
  • Professional multitracking and MIDI
  • Mixing and editing
  • Loop-based creation

What you get
Sony ACID Pro 7 combines full multitrack recording and mixing, complete MIDI sequencing, and legendary loop manipulation for seamless music creation and post production. Get up and running quickly with new interactive tutorials. Other new features include a dedicated mixing console, MIDI track freeze, input busses, tempo curves, and enhanced format support. ACID Pro 7 software includes over 3,000 loops and 1,000 MIDI files for music creation, as well as the Garritan ARIA for ACID Pro player, the ACID Pro Effects Rack powerered by iZotope, Native Instruments Guitar Combos, and Submersible Music KitCore.

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.

Loop-based creation

ACID Pro 7 software also includes over 3,000 ACIDized loops and 1,000 MIDI files so users can start creating music right out of the box. 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. Remix songs with standard or multiple tempos with the Beatmapper remix tool. Further manipulate loops with real time event reverse and freehand envelope drawing.

Sony acid pro 7

it's a great progra;
Music background: student
5/5

Acid is more powerful than is told.

Ya know Sony should stop advertising it as "Loop Based Software" because I have scored many films with this program. I've been nominated for a Grammy and I used Acid and told the director that I use "Pro Tools", which I hate! I put acid up against a avid pro tools user who is also a professional in the industry, and I blew him and his pro tools out of the water, hands down. Just so you guys know, I had 120 stereo tracks running at the same time and no hiccups! AND, I recorded strings (no loops). So Sony, if you read this, you are selling yourself short. Upgrade this program so we can give Avid a run for the money. BTW: NO I dont work for Sony or Sweetwater......And Also, Danny Elfman Scored Men in Black using acid!
