The all-new ACID Pro 8.
Looks great. Is great.
ACID Pro 8 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 8 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.
