Mixing, editing and MIDI
ACID Music Studio software provides a complete set of professional-level tools to give you precise control over audio mixing, effects processing, audio routing, and final output. Create your own music loops with the Chopper™ tool. Add pan and volume envelopes for precise control. Customize your mix with built-in audio effects. Alter pitch and tempo in real time.
Enhanced remixing tools
For remixing your favorite songs, only ACID Music Studio software has the Beatmapper tool. This tool automatically finds the tempo of a complete song, making it easy to remix. New markers in ACID Music Studio 9 allow you to Beatmap songs with varying tempos and time signatures.
Studio-quality audio effects
Apply professional-quality audio effects and processes including élastique timestretching, EQ, reverb, delay, chorus, flange, phase, distortion, and echo. ACID Music Studio features VST audio effects support, as well as support for VST instruments so you can play back your MIDI tracks through virtual synthesizers, filters, and effects.
Inline MIDI editing
Increase your productivity with user-friendly inline MIDI note editing. Inline editing makes MIDI data easier to work with. Use envelopes and keyframes for precise control over MIDI data. The drum grid allows you to easily edit MIDI notes for soft synths that have drum maps defined.
Audio and MIDI Mixing Console
The Mixing Console provides an integrated view of all tracks and busses in your project with the appearance of a traditional hardware-based mixer. The look can be customized to provide you with the best view of even the most complex sessions. The new audio and MIDI Mixing Console has additional routing options, allowing for a more flexible and efficient studio recording environment. ACID Music Studio 9 also supports up to four audio busses and four assignable effects chains.

New! MIDI and VST automation
Track envelope automation is now available in ACID Music Studio, allowing envelope control of numerous MIDI and VST parameters. Exercise precise control over instrument and plug-in parameter changes, and save these changes with your projects.
New! Sections and Folders
Sections functionality binds collections of events, envelopes, regions, commands and markers together, allowing them to be moved as single units in a musical arrangement. Folder tracks reduce clutter by allowing user-defined groups of tracks (for example, all drum and percussion tracks in a single song) to be nested into their own folder tracks, and expanded for viewing as needed.
Easily create gradual transitions in tempo over the duration of an ACID Music Studio project. Transition types include Linear, Fast, Slow, Smooth, Sharp, and Hold. Tempo curves are an efficient way to create dramatic or subtle tempo changes in your project.
