Whether you're recording your band or creating MIDI-based compositions, ACID Pro 7 software is the optimal platform for reliable multitrack recording and production.

Innovative loop-based music creation

Simultaneously record MIDI on multiple tracks, apply real time quantization, perform filtering and processing, create and edit drum patterns, and more.

Superior mixing and editing

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive update to the venerable Acid October 1, 2009
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Edition:Pro
I am very impressed by Acid Pro7.0. For the price [...] Direct Box) I believe that Acid Pro 7 is a must have upgrade that makes it a worthy competitor in the DAW market. Its simplicity and ease of use, and at the same time overall robustness are a reminder that a no frills design can increase productivity as I found myself happily zipping along and having everything on the same screen only a click away.

Pros
Uncluttered interface
Best loop stretching in the biz!
Tempo Curves
Real time rendering
Plug In bundle with Garritan, iZotope, etc.
Can use any 3rd party audio editor
Price

Cons
Midi editing not very intuitive
No dedicated audio editor

As a long time Acid user (since ver. 2) I was very interested to see what the software had in terms of updates and improvements. Acid's time stretching and looping tools have always been flawless and in version 6 Sony added multi-tracking capabilities, thus making Acid Pro 6 a recording workstation.

According to Sony, version Acid Pro 7 offers improvement of the midi and tracking sections of the software as well as some welcome additions in terms of plugins such as Garritan Aria, Acid Pro Effects Rack by iZotope, Native Instruments Guitar Combos and Submersible Music KitCore. Sony have added an audio and midi mixing console, input busses, real time rendering and midi track freeze, features that a lot of users were hoping to see in version 6. There are also a few features under the hood that enhance the user experience as well and we'll get into these details later.

Installation

Acid Pro 7 requires the user to register online and to obtain a key code via a challenge and response system.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a beginner with this... November 6, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Edition:Pro
Are you a creative musician, who also is a Home recordist? (is there such a word?)
Acid Pro is all you need in my book.
It records audio like an old school multitrack tape recorder.
It inputs midi-files. Wave files, mp3 files, and much more. You can mix them all together!
And it comes with a huge library of Drum, bass, ambient, sound effects, voices, ethnic instruments, loops!
These are in many musical genres.
So you can make a backup band, with real recorded instruments, or any wierd combination you like.

I bought Acid 6 awhile ago, and upgraded to 7.
My experience is from the fostex 4 track days of the 80's.
Those days everything was pretty intuitive.
I then "graduated" to a Roland digi 8track recorder. Brain freeze!
Drum machine, roland keyboard. I had to learn how to play basic chords on the keys, or bass lines etc.
Too much to figure out for my brain. More time figuring out instead of creative juices.

Then a friend emailed me a recording he made. It blew me away!
He revealed Acid Pro to me.
Learning to lay down drums, bass, synth pads... Then change keys. All of this is fairly EZ.
Learn as you go. I ask myself "how do I do this?" Then look it up in "Help" files.
In a couple of minutes, Boom, I got it, and it makes so much sense, I remember next time.
Even the most simple stuff you experimentaly produce, can sound pro compared to before.
Creative juices are flowing along with a simple learning curve as I create.
This program is as simple as you want, and gets deeper than I'll ever care to go.

Let's say I want to record my guitar backwards. I learned how to do that in 2 mins. It takes 5 seconds to do.
How about modifying a nice midifile?

5.0 out of 5 stars ACID PRO IS THE BEST January 27, 2010
By K. Hons
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Edition:Pro
I love making music. Acid pro is one [actually, my favorite] music making software.
It's easy to use, and there's nothing wrong with it.
You just drag and drop loops from the program and then eventually - BAM! - you've got a song!
Another good thing is that you can make songs as long as you want and you can save them into Mp3.
I highly recommend this if anyone is interested about making music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monumental Music Software December 21, 2011
By incents
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Edition:Pro
This application actually changed my life. That may sound crazy, but it truly did. When I discovered ACID back in 1999, it drew me into music making and to multimedia/technology as a whole. It's ease of use, formidable power and professional loop libraries opened the door to the composition of music, in a revolutionary manner for me. For the first time, I could see magic in computer-based art. And, from there I went wild with devotion. This is a fantastic way to start mixing tracks and to explore your musical self. It's actually addictive, and I wouldn't touch it, if you don't have hours to spare blissfully arranging tracks and being fully in control of the sounds you make and combine. There's nothing more intuitive or functional out there. The developers have stayed with the core for years, and it's the core that makes this such an amazing paragon of audio-creation code. Get it. Love it. Share your sound with the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! May 14, 2012
By Jephyr
Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Pro|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy putting music tracks together using Acid Pro 7.

It's really easy to use and very intuitive...fades, crossfades, splitting, moving etc are a breeze and adding a loop /track is simply drag and drop...making creating on the run very easy.

It comes with a lot of efx but you can add VST, freeware and efx from other venders that will give tracks a polished sound.

I use Acid to create mostly loop based music and this version includes 3,000 .wav loops...some not so good...but many, many are really interesting and usable...and you can purchased other on-line loop libraries from Amazon and other on-line suppliers.

I've built really long loop music tracks and the software runs just fine on my Windows 7PC with 16 GB of RAM and an i5 CPU. For example, my last project was a music bed for a video and clocked in at 8:32 minutes and had 385 tracks...and everything ran just fine!!
