Recording, mixing, and editing
ACID Pro 7 software addresses even the most complex audio production tasks with ease. With ACID Pro 7, you get the advantages of full-on DAW functionality paired with the built-in time stretching and pitch shifting features that changed music and shook the industry. Ease of use is still paramount, even as the ACID Pro feature set has expanded to encompass the entire spectrum of modern DAW features, and our exclusive support options and third party additions help make ACID Pro hands down one of the most fun and inspiring music creation software tools on the market.
ACID Pro 7 software is a complete DAW environment. Complex editing is a snap using our piano roll and drum grid editing environments. Create and edit drum maps and use templates to label patch and drum names for hardware and software-based MIDI instruments. Ease the strain on your CPU by freezing MIDI tracks that are routed to soft synths.
Our new mixing console has the appearance of a traditional mixer --customize it to get the view you need. Expanded routing options now allow for a more flexible studio recording environment. Record hardware instruments with plug-in effects, mix external sources into your projects, use external effects processors on tracks and busses, create complex submixes with bus-to-bus routing, and monitor it all in real time. Set up and mix surround projects, and use the surround panner for precise control over channel positions.
Use Tempo Curves to create smooth tempo variations in your projects. Draw envelopes using a mouse or external control surface and then tidy them up with automatic post-record keyframe thinning. Automate your 5.1 mix on the timeline using keyframes, and use envelopes and keyframes to implement MIDI continuous controller data and program changes. In ACID Pro 7 software you can easily modify pitch, modulation, expression, or change MIDI controller data, including project-wide changes.
Place multiple media types on a single track, and add samples to your project as it plays back. Create your own loops in the Chopper and fly them in during playback via keyboard commands.
Control Surface Support
ACID Pro 7 software supports Mackie Control Universal and Frontier Design TranzPort, allows custom mapping of up to five user-defined control surfaces, and helps you stay organized by indicating all channels dedicated to external control.
Slice, Dice, and Groove
The Chopper creates amazing rhythmic variations. Use it to 'clone' loops, create chopped events, tweak your loops and create your own customized samples. Chopped events will play in sync with your ACID Pro 7 projects, and you can even use keyboard commands to drop events from the Chopper onto the timeline in real time.
ACID Pro 7 software features our patent-pending Groove Mapping and Groove Cloning quantization technology. Morph existing material into fresh new sounds. Apply grooves to a track, extract a groove from one file and apply it to another, or create and export custom grooves.
Premier Remixing Tools
Use our Beatmapper tool to add tempo information to song-length files, including MP3s. New enhancements in ACID Pro 7 software make it easier to edit clip properties and Beatmap songs with varying tempos and time signatures, providing you with more flexibility when composing songs and performing remixes.
Divide your project into logical sections that can be freely arranged directly on the timeline. Organize your tracks by placing them into Track Folders and then use cluster editing to drag, pitch-shift, cut, copy, and paste entire sections of an arrangement
