The all-new ACID Pro.
Looks great. Is great.
ACID Pro makes it very easy to create entire song arrangements in no time at all. It offers many creative tools for today's producers that can be accessed from the main Arranger area. It's easy to divide your project into logical sections and then order them on the timeline. Tracks can be easily organized by placing them into Track Folders and then use cluster editing to drag, pitch-shift, cut, copy and paste whole sections of an arrangement to complete your tunes with ease.
The Chopper is a flexible groove tool that slices an audio file and then lets you re-order, remix, change its groove and replay it. With the Chopper, you can quickly create incredible rhythmic variations of the original sample or impressive drum fills, stutters and DJ effects. Best of all, all chopped events will play in sync with your ACID Pro projects and you can even use special key commands to drop events from the Chopper onto the timeline.
Real-time pitch and tempo manipulation
ACID Pro is famous for its real-time pitch and tempo manipulation features. Change the tempo or key of an audio clip, track or entire song in an instant or set markers to edit the tempo or key on-the-fly at any defined position in the song. It's also easy to match the pitch and tempo of any ACID file you import to a track or entire song or even match the song pitch and key to an imported file.

Artists on ACID Pro.
"Using ACID makes me feel like a master chef setting up all his ingredients for an incredible meal. I assemble any loops, sounds, dialogue or FX in there, make my pitch adjustments, cut up and edit beats, and instantly hear how everything fits together. I then export all of that into my main DAW. I am not exaggerating when I say I cannot do what I do nearly as well without ACID. It is literally my ‘musical lifeline'!"

"ACID Pro was my creative weapon of choice for Blade Runner 2049, and in 2018 I received an Oscar nomination for my work on the film. It lets me work so fast. Both cutting and layering audio clips and creating MIDI is a faster, more simplified workflow than any other DAW. Yet it has all the features I need, whether composing or sound designing."

"In just the first 3 days of working with the new ACID PRO 8 on the forth-coming Waterboys album, I am crazy thrilled to proclaim the new DAW interface, flexible routing and in-line editing combined with the new Stellar FX and Synth plugins and updated graphics. Overall the 64-Bit sonic quality makes ACID PRO 8 right out of the box a FIVE STAR SMASH HIT!"

“When I first saw ACID 1.0 my jaw dropped. I've been an ACID Pro user since the beginning as well as a loops for ACID producer. ACID makes chopping up and mixing audio seem like magic. It's fast, intuitive, and inspiring."

“What I loved about ACID Pro was how it's workflow was so quick especially when using stems/samples/loops which allowed me to remix songs quickly for other artists. The new ACID Pro 8 follows suit plus with its new 64-Bit processing everything is much faster and has cut my production time almost in half!"

“The first time I tried ACID Pro 2, it became the only tool for my production because of its simplicity and easy to use interface.
I truly believe ACID Pro 8 is the most powerful DAW that MAGIX has created. The new look with the 64-Bit interface gives my work more flexibility. Every day I discover something new in this software which helps me concentrate my love for music."
Producer, Singer and Songwriter
Diplo, Bun B, Elliphant
"It's impressive how a DAW this powerful feels so lightweight. Complex projects open and close nearly instant and the new UI is snappy and responsive. The dark UI is easy on the eyes but keeps the classic ACID look old fans of the software have grown to love. Version 8 has the most comprehensive sound and effects package bundled with ACID Pro to date. Finally being able to use all of my 64 bit plugins in ACID is a dream come true."
Producer, Composer and Viacom Library Contributor
"The projects that would normally take me two-three hours to create a sound, or a plug-in feature in Pro Tools, would take me 15-20 minutes in ACID."

"The moment I was introduced to ACID Pro everything changed. It was the first DAW that made it super easy for sequencing, to create and manipulate loop-based content. No longer did I have to fight for studio time because now I could work from home and get amazing results fast. (...) More than 20 years later, I’ve yet to find another program that has the same power and versatility as ACID Pro. The latest version of ACID Pro 8 picks up where ACID Pro 7 leaves off, providing more stability, plug-in support and a sleeker look that’s easier on the eyes.”
Producer, DJ and Remixer
Viacom library (Jersey Shore, MTV Show)
“I've been using ACID Pro since forever and the new ACID Pro 8 is a real game changer. I've tried many DAWs, but ACID Pro always works best for me. It's fast, easy to use and have all you want in a DAW. Soon to release my second album made 100% in ACID Pro just as my first album and all my remixes!"

“I've tried for years to get my head around the Top DAWs on the market — and despite their innovative concepts, nothing gets close to ACID Pro when it comes to workflow, ease of use and mind-to-music process. You won't open the user manual once because it just makes sense, which is why it truly deserves to be called The Creative DAW."

Thanks to the happy update by MAGIX, I'm making my new songs in the 64-Bit environment. It gives me more power, therefore even making the most complex projects possible. And the huge number of new built-in plugins are very useful for me. More people should know about this great DAW! I love it!"
