Effortless music making. I love love love this program. A speedy, mind-boggling audio engine makes Acid Pro an essential part of my music studio. Acid Pro takes the art of making soundtracks, remixes, and dj sets to another level.

Not as good as I thought it would be
I've been using Acid Music Studio since version 7, I also use Vegas Movie Studio and Sound Forge Audio Studio.
They all "Perform" very well so I've been hoping to get Acid Pro for a decent price. When this sale came up I bought it, I didn't even think to check to see if it came in 64 bit. It only comes in 32 bit so I can't use all of my new 64 bit plugins. The included effects and instruments are ok, I already own Kitcore Deluxe, the Native Instruments Guitar Combos are great and the Izotope effects are outstanding. The Garritan Aria player is not all that, I have several other programs that blow this one away. All in all, I probably should have waited to see if a new version of Acid Pro comes in 64 bit. Everything you get with Pro besides the extras is in Acid Music Studio 8. The only other thing you don't get is the Media Manager(not all that) and Groove mapping/cloning. I don't know if I'll ever use that feature but it looks like it could be useful. My main DAW right now is Sonar X2 Producer, while the sound from Acid Pro is extremely clear and transparent I would still turn to Sonar for any intricate audio work.

A familiar friend
Acid Pro 7 is everything the previous versions were with better stability and added V.S.T. support.
I've never used Acid to it's potential. I've always used it for assembling drums and of all things, creating a montage for C.D. burning. A sort of pseudo mastering. I'm no mastering engineer but Acid makes it very easy to lay out your tracks, number and label them. And because you can have each track on it's own channel, you can apply track specific processing without adding an additional mastering step. That also means, matching levels without unnecessarily compressing the life out of the entire mix. Which of course means that you can keep your dynamics if you value them as I do.
IMHO, Acid is still the simplest way to create and work with loops and time stretch samples. That means matching tempo across tracks is just easy. There's almost no need to think about it. You just set the tempo and all sliced tracks will match that tempo. What could be simpler? I have other plugins and other D.A.W.s which do tempo matching but they are incredibly convoluted in comparison. I will go out of my way to use Acid specifically for this reason.
Granted, the interface is not as pretty as some other D.A.W.s. The benefit of that is, it does not eat up unnecessary Processor cycles just to process a pretty interface. It's efficient. And even with a reasonably fast computer(i7 4770k) audio can start to bog down your Processor when you get into larger projects. So, sacrificing a pretty GUI for better audio performance is worth it.
Honestly, I don't know if I would ever use Acid as my main D.A.W. but I highly doubt I could live without it at this point. It's just too convenient. Too efficient for me to do without. If I had to choose between this and the big one. I'd easily drop the "industry standard". Function over form and fewer compatibility issues.
The only thing that I would like to see is better implementation with Windows 8. Touch capability would be nice. Also a mixer that could be moved to a separate monitor would be nice. Other than that, great job Sony.

Just upgraded to Acid Pro 7
Having used Acid Music Studio 9 and found it lacking I thought I would upgrade whilst there was a price offer, overall it was the right decision but there are a few niggles.
Pro 7 tends to crash if I ask it to do too many things at once!
However, that might be because my PC is slightly underpowered, I'm only running on 8gb ram at the mo. and planning to upgrade to 16gb.
I'll let you know what if any difference it makes
