Acid Pro 5.0
A Revolutionary New Way To Make Music
I don't know how to describe Acid Pro 5.0 other than "cool".
The fastest and smartest way of making great sounding playbacks or whole
records with a minimum of effort. Unbelievable, that this should sound like music. But it is. So you got to
be careful. Once you start playing with it, you might become addicted.
Drop some loops on different tracks. Then add your own recordings, tune
and mix them.. That's all.
Even professional producers cannot ignore Acid Pro 5.0. It's just too
interesting, time saving and performs really well.
Since it also has a midi sequencer implemented you can use it as a
real production tool. When you have to create a jingle or a fast demo it
is hard to beat.
Acid Pro 5.0 provides some
- Groove Mapping quantization tools with Groove
Cloning. That means you can take a
groove from a loop and use that groove as a quantization pattern for a
midi sequence. This helps you create songs that really groove.
- ReWire support (mixer and device)
Acid can be a ReWire mixer that mixes different sound sources. I can
also be a device that gets routed into another mixer. This is great and
we all have been waiting for this.
- VST effects support with automation and tempo
sync. and Multiport VSTi soft synth support.
I think I don't have to explain that. Thats like Christmas and birthday
together. You can use all your VST effects and instruments in Acid.
- MIDI Piano Roll snap-to-scale filtering
Finally the Midi section has a Piano Roll editor. In order to prevent
wrong notes you can use the snap to scale feature
- Customizable Workspace and Project Media Folder You an
customize almost any aspect of your workflow. That makes it even faster
to get good result.
I often wish that any software should be like acid. You actually play around
while making good sounding music, that matches professional standards.
