The Sony Acid Pro Version 7 DAW is the latest in the line of Acid Pro software suites. As one of the top PC based loop creation programs, Acid Pro provides mixing and plug-in handling in fast and efficient interface. Version 7 brings in a number of new features that make the software more creative, efficient, and versatile while still keeping some of the classic, must-have features that previous versions made popular.
One of the big problems with version 6 of Acid Pro was that it was not Vista-compatible, but that barrier has been removed with version 7. The installation of the software on all PC platforms is very quick and easy, and in addition to the main Acid Pro suite, the installation also installs a number of nice extras like a pro effects rack from iZotope and a Submersible Music KitCore Drums bundle. There are also more than 3,000 music loops, 90 DLS instruments, and 1,000 MIDI files. Visually, the environment of Acid Pro 7 looks similar to previous versions, which means the learning curve for those who use Acid Pro won’t be very steep at all.
What’s new? Mixing has a new console that makes things feel more natural. It’s no longer the clumsy task that previous versions of Acid made it. In fact, it’s much quicker, although it still does not feature dual-pan controls, nor does routing and mixing have sidechaining support. While these little details do hold Acid Pro back from being the one-stop DAW, version 7 still features almost 20 new tools. The price isn’t bad, either—$399.95 for buying the boxed version in a store or $299.95 for the download.
