ACID Music Studio 10 from Sony is a computer-based multi-track recording system. The program supports up to 24-bit 192 kHz audio resolution and allows you to record vocals and instruments over the included 3,000 loops, extract audio from CDs, and import MP3 files for remixing and creating dynamic DJ sets. Extensive Audio effects, MIDI functionality, and new workflow and performance features provide a tool set for professional music production.
Audio effects include élastique timestretching, EQ, reverb, delay, chorus, flanging, phase shift, and distortion. Virtual 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. 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 plug-in which features emulations of high-gain guitar amplifier rigs such as a Marshall stack.
The software also comes with TruePianos Amber Lite, which is a VST piano plug-in that includes options to control both dynamics and reverb. 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.
The software also allows you to burn music CDs, save songs for uploading to favorite Web sites, including Soundcloud and indabamusic.com, and convert audio to MP3 files for playback on all favorite portable players. It comes with a free one-year Indaba Music Pro membership. Indaba makes it possible to 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.
