ACID Music Studio 9 from Sony is recording software that is easy to use but that still has a lot to offer beginners and more experienced musicians alike. Record vocals and instruments over the included loops provided, extract audio from CDs, and import MP3 files for remixing and creating dynamic DJ sets. Audio effects, MIDI functionality, and new workflow and performance features open the door to the world of professional music production.

Audio effects include élastique timestretching, EQ, reverb, delay, chorus, flanging, phase shift, and distortion. Ninety instruments for song creation are included, along with VST effects plug-ins and VST instrument support, allowing MIDI tracks to be played back using the virtual instruments, filters, and effects. Powerful MIDI editing and sequencing tools are also available while input monitoring allows for hearing the recording signal with real-time track effects, like the included Studio Devil British Valve Custom guitar amplifier.

TruePianos Amber Lite is a high-quality VST piano plug-in which includes options to control dynamics and reverb for the most realistic piano experience. A mixing console provides an integrated view of all tracks and busses in a project based on the appearance of a traditional hardware-based mixer. The look can be customized to provide the best view of even the most complex sessions. Additional routing options allow for a more flexible and efficient studio recording environment.

Burn music CDs, save songs for uploading to favorite Web sites, including ACIDplanet.com and indabamusic.com, and convert audio to MP3 files for playback on all favorite portable players. The software includes a free one-year Indaba Music Pro membership. Remix major artists, get placements and exposure, find gigs, enter contests, and more. Indaba Music opens a wealth of opportunities for members and includes 5GB of cloud storage space.

Note! This package is an educational discount available to qualified students, faculty members, staff members, or accredited institutions. Proof of current educational status is required.
