The electronic download of MAGIX Entertainment ACID Pro Next is a creative DAW that marries an easy-to-use workflow with pro-level features to provide artists and musicians with an inspiring, loop-based environment to compose, remix, record, edit, and mix their songs. The software features a 64-bit engine that utilizes the full power of your Windows computer to handle multitrack recording of high-fidelity audio at up to 24-bit / 192 kHz, or compose and mix with dozens of instrument and effects plug-ins running in real-time, all with low latency.
At its heart, ACID Pro Next Suite uses ACIDized loops, which are at the core of creative loop-based music production. They contain pitch, length, and transient data, can be edited and manipulated in real-time, and easily mixed together to make complete pieces of music. Remixing is fast and easy with powerful tools such as Beatmapper, which identifies the tempo and time signature information in external audio files and applies it to your project, and Chopper, which slices and dices audio files to create rhythmic variations of the original audio or new samples from the original loop, all in sync with your project. Also included is zplane élastique for real-time and artifact-free timestretching and pitchshifting of your audio files.
The mixing console looks like a traditional studio mixer but can be customized to match your unique workflow. It provides a flexible recording environment with a variety of routing options that let you assign plug-in effects, work with external MIDI devices, use external effect processors on tracks and busses, and create complex submixes with bus-to-bus routing, all while monitoring everything in real-time. The CoreFX Suite provides a collection of essential studio effects including reverb, delay, EQ, compressor, modulation, de-esser, and more. Also available are the am|track SE vintage analog compressor plug-in and the Vandal SE suite of guitar and bass effects racks, which accurately model stompboxes, guitar amps, and speaker cabinets.
In addition, ACID Pro Next features audio separation technology powered by zynaptiq STEM MAKER. Split songs into beats, vocals, and music, and use the resulting stems in your own tunes and to remix. Finally, when you're ready to share your music, you can burn audio CDs directly from the timeline, or encode your mixes in all the popular streaming formats used online and in portable media players.
