New: Acid Pro Is Back – The Revolutionary Daw Returns

MAGIX Software announces the long-awaited return of the DAW that kick-started a revolution in music production. ACID Pro 8 has more features, more power, and more plug-ins but retains the easy workflow of the previous version.

The loop-based Digital Audio Workstation ACID Pro is back with its first major update in ten years. MAGIX Software has completely overhauled the software that revolutionized loop-based music making 20 years ago and has added many new professional features, instruments and effects and an all-powerful 64-bit architecture. Yet with a brand new, sleek and modern interface and its innovative loop-based compositional environment, the software retains the easy workflow that it is famous for. ACID Pro has been revitalized for today’s creative artist and producer but is as easy to use today as it was at its release 20 years ago.

The last major update to ACID Pro, by the previous owner Sony Creative Software, was in 2008. ACID Pro 8 not only represents a major upgrade of the software but demonstrates MAGIX Software’s commitment to the brand going forward. Indeed the company will be adding VST3 support in a free update later this year. ACID Pro 8 is sure to please both new users looking for a creative DAW that marries top-spec features with ease of use, and also its large and loyal fanbase – which MAGIX consulted with for many of with whom MAGIX have worked closely together in developing many of the new updates.

New Features

Whether you are making 24-bit, 192kHz multitrack recordings, mixing with multiple effects in real time, or composing with dozens of plug-in instruments – thanks to its new powerful 64-bit architecture, ACID Pro 8 will step up to the plate and offer all the latency free power you need and support for state-of-the-art 64-bit instruments.

With the new interface, MAGIX has redesigned the GUI to enhance working in a dimmed environment and further improve ACID Pro’s famed ease of use. The sleek and modern interface makes navigating and editing a breeze.

MAGIX has also added over $1000 of instruments, loops, and effects to ACID Pro 8. There’s powerful virtual analog synthesizer from DN-e1; first-class effect plug-ins and high-quality audio tools from essentialFX Suite; screaming guitar effects by way of Vandal SE; flexible and high-quality sampling from Vita 2; plus 11 Vita solo instruments that cover everything from Pop Drums to Cinematic Synths. ACID Pro 8 also comes with a 9GB library of all new ACIDized loops and samples.

MAGIX has also announced producerplanet.com: a new comprehensive online content platform where users can purchase even more ACIDized loops, sounds and instruments.
