About Magix ACID Pro 7
Your new creative partner
ACID Pro 7 is a DAW powerhouse that combines full multitrack recording and mixing, MIDI sequencing and looping functionality for a seamless studio production environment. More creative partner than production tool, ACID Pro 7 software inspires like nothing else. With its Transparent Technology design, ACID Pro 7 software removes typical barriers to the creative workflow so you can effortlessly transform ideas into real results.
Drop the bass
ACIDized loops are more than just audio files. They contain information on length, transients and even key of the samples. ACID analyses the file and uses the information to manipulate the sound and pitch with ease.
Innovative loop-based music creation
Version 7 retains all the classic ACID Pro features including real-time pitch/tempo transposition during playback and preview, unlimited tracks and their signature pick/paint/play interface. ACID Pro 7 software also includes 90 virtual instruments so you can start creating music right out of the box.
Comprehensive MIDI support
Experience unparalleled MIDI sequencing in ACID Pro 7 software, with real time MIDI processing and precise control over MIDI events. Use track envelopes to automate and modify modulation, expression or other types of MIDI controller data.
Professional effects and synth support
Expand your palette with native support for VST instruments and plug-ins. Create resonant sweeps, EQ changes and add effects with parameter automation. ReWire and ASIO support help you smoothly integrate ACID Pro 7 software with your existing studio.
ACID Pro 7 software has a dedicated mixing console for a flexible and efficient recording environment. Specify routing, assign audio effects and use external effects processors with tracks and busses. ACID Pro 7 software also supports control surface automation and channel tracking for devices such as the Mackie Control and Frontier Design TranzPort.
ACID Pro 7 software supports control surface automation and channel tracking for devices such as the Mackie Control and Frontier Design TranzPort. Its unique Beatmapper tool makes remixing easy and the Chopper tool helps you create impressive drum fills, stutters and DJ effects.
Professional workflow features
Maximize efficiency with folder tracks and cluster editing to drag, pitch-shift, cut, copy and paste whole sections of your arrangements. Use the Clip Pool to choose and arrange events in your compositions or create dramatic and subtle tempo changes with tempo curves. Projects can be delivered in nearly any format – all without leaving the ACID Pro 7 environment.
Included with ACID Pro 7 software
ACID Pro 7 includes software for professional music production and editing, including ACID Pro Effects Rack powered by iZotope.
Maximum bit depth/sample rate increase to 24-bit/192 kHz
Record ultra-high-resolution audio on your PC.
Audio event effects
Apply independent effects chains to individual audio events.
Grouped events move together across the timeline and stay in sync when slipped. Groups get saved with your ACID Projects and respond to commands like undo/redo as well as copy/paste.
Every little detail
These processes and filters perform mathematically perfect editing on MIDI events. Choose which notes and MIDI messages you want to record or exclude, modify key velocities and quantize notes when performing on MIDI instruments.
Hot beats at absolute zero
Projects that use soft synths can tax your computer’s resources. Freezing MIDI tracks allows you to convert each MIDI track to a .wav file, effectively taking your soft synths offline.
Straight to the cloud
Upload tracks to the world’s most popular music listening destination directly within the ACID interface.
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 revolutionized 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. ACID Pro 7 is one of the most fun and inspiring music creation software tools on the market.
Their 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.
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.
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.
ACID Pro 7 software features their 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.
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.
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
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.
Premier remixing tools
Use their 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.
Acid pro effects rack, powered by isotope
The ACID Pro Effects Rack bundle is a suite of audio effects powered by iZotope DSP technology. The effects include high quality algorithms featuring the exceptional sound quality for which iZotope is known. The ACID Pro Effects Rack bundle includes Flanger, Phaser, Analog Delay and Dynamics effects.
Manipulate MIDI data directly on the ACID timeline in piano roll and drum grid interfaces. Edit note positions, velocities, pitch bends and controller information in the main multitrack interface.
Drum grid mode
ACID Pro 7 Drum Grid Mode provides you with an easy and intuitive way to create and edit drum patterns directly on the timeline.
Midi track freeze
Freeze MIDI tracks that are routed to soft synths. Once frozen, the tracks are streamed and played back as audio files, conserving valuable CPU processing power.
Drum and patch map editors
Efficiently create and edit drum maps. Use templates to label patch and drum names for hardware or software-based MIDI synthesizers and drum machines. Save your templates and share them with other ACID Pro 7 users.
VST effects support
ACID Pro 7 software natively supports VST effects, including automation of effects parameters, giving you the creative edge.
Increase your mixing flexibility by incorporating automation envelopes to control VST instruments in your ACID Pro 7 projects.
• Zplane Elastique
• Groove quantization tools
• Envelope automation
The purchase of a volume license entitles you to use the products simultaneously on as many computers as you have purchased licenses for. Not with-standing this, you may install the products on an unlimited number of computers; simultaneous use, however, will be limited to the number of purchased licenses. If you install the products on more computers than you have purchased licenses for, you will have to purchase additional volume license codec packages for the number of computers that go beyond the number of purchased licenses.
