ACID Pro 7 from Sony Media Software is both a loop-based and linear music creation tool that allows for the production of original, royalty-free music. Songs can be created, tracks re-mixed, music beds developed, videos scored, and music for Web sites and Flash animations developed. The addition of a fully functional mixer environment now allows the software to be seriously considered as a main Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) application in any studio situation.

The software features top quality automatic loop time-stretching and tempo-matching technology and is intuitive and easy to use with its straightforward pick, paint, and play functionality. As before, source material can be pre-recorded loops in multiple genres, recorded hits or segments, complete songs, even MP3s. But with ACID Pro 7, multi-track recording and full MIDI sequencing take on a new functionality with unlimited tracks and the dedicated mixing console.

Files can be previewed, selected and dropped into place. Automatic real-time pitch-shifting, time-stretching, and groove quantization of audio and MIDI events takes the stress out of assembling perfectly synced music. The software also supports video import. With the use of prerecorded audio, a soundtrack can easily be assembled. Even if the individual elements do not fit the hit points of the movie, with the use of markers and a few key strokes, the music can be slowed down or accelerated to hit as many points as required.

          Comments about Sony ACID Pro 7 - Audio, MIDI and Loop Based Recording Software:

          I previously had an early version of Acid Loops 2.0 and used it for producing my drum tracks for an album and some full compositions for a show on a prominant cable network. This program made it a breeze to do all of my high-end recording AND drumtrack writing all in the same program on the same screen as opposed to using a system of several programs and processes, and at very high sample and bit rates. The mastering tools included are hands down easiest of all the programs I've used, and create a "Nashville" final product with ease. Thanks again Sony!

            Comments about Sony ACID Pro 7 - Audio, MIDI and Loop Based Recording Software:

            Reveiwer backgorund; 13 years pre and post production for indie music industry.Acid pro 7 is worth every cent. The product is used in our studio and we were so impressed with Acid Pro 7 that it has now replaced our standard recording software. Why? Ease of use, Rich in Features, basically there is nothing you can't do!Whether it's live multitracking, midi track implementation or loop sample chopping and hacking, the ease of setup and overall pre production capabillities of this program is mind blowing ... straight out of the box and 4 hours later we had done our first live 12 track recording!It's not resource hungry, and can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. I Recommend min 2.6 ghz CPU and 4 GB Ram for painless velvet smooth multitrack operation. Acid Pro 7 also has support for most plugins and hands on interface systems.There is no point wasting a third or half the price of this product on consumer packages. Save the extra and get this! You will discover it's a major big boys production tool from a major company.WE DID NOT FIND ANYTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT! AWESOME![...]
