When you're making your own music either commercially or as a hobby sooner or later you'll need some music editing and production software to give everything that professional feel and ensure that quality stays high. Acid Pro is a great tool for that job offering a free trial for you to get to grips with the suite of music editing tools.
Your New Creative Partner
Acid Pro bills itself as ?your new creative partner? and it?s a fair boast a DAW suite which offers most of the tools of a full audio production suite on your PC or laptop. The software is designed to not get in your way being as easy to use as possible which certainly seems to be true- though you?ll still need to be very familiar with audio editing. The program has some high-quality features such as handling high-res audio at 24-BIT/192 KHZ and the ability to copy/paste complex sections of music. The mixer panel looks like a traditional mixer and you can tweak audio modify pitch modulation expression and more. Definitely a tool for a pro!
Acid Pro is very much aimed at experienced audio editors so while it is easy to use you should be comfortable with very detailed audio mixing to get the most out of it. Having said that the free trial is there for you to get acquainted with these tools.
- In previous releases of ACID 6.0, VSTi plug-ins would stop producing output if the plug-in caused an exception. You can now click the Enable button in the Soft Synth Properties dialog twice to clear the exception to reset the plug-in (if the plug-in allows resetting).
- You can now load MIDI files that contain only SysEx data. When you load a SysEx-only file, a single track is created, and the SysEx data is displayed as keyframes.
- A bug has been fixed that caused SysEx data timestamps to be calculated incorrectly during playback.
- A bug has been fixed that prevented you from opening SMF Type 1 files created in ACID 4 and 5.
- A problem has been fixed that could cause some VSTi plug-ins to reload the current patch after receiving SysEx data.
- A bug that could cause a crash after copying envelopes to the clipboard has been fixed.
- A bug that could cause a crash when using Lynx audio hardware in ASIO mode has been fixed.
- A bug has been fixed that caused the Join command to incorrectly join unselected events that overlapped selected events.
- A bug has been fixed that could cause a rendered file to be truncated if you rendered immediately after changing the project tempo.
- General improvements when adding, removing, or renaming ReWire devices.
