ACID Pro Next Innovations 

ACID Pro Next has introduced the industry to several significant innovations designed to optimize the creative workflow for audio professionals. 

zynaptiq® STEM MAKER technology precisely splits songs into tracks for ultimate sampling, remixing, mash-ups and beat production. Its Audio Source Separation Technology enables users to extract vocals, drums, and music from any song and use the resulting stems for custom music and remixing. Using the new MIDI Playable Chopper, samples can be extracted and remixed in MPC style. These technological advancements have simplified the process of working with audio, playing a complete melody in real time, and recording for immediate remixing. Coupled with the new MIDI Playable Chopper, ACID Pro Next becomes a powerful MPC-style performance sampler, offering unprecedented creative possibilities.

At the heart of ACID Pro Next is ACID's world-renowned loop-based music production technology. With more advanced features such as Melodyne Essential, exclusive instruments, and gigabytes of ACIDized loops for compositions from a wide range of genres, ACID Pro Next is now the flagship of the ACID Pro product line.
