Two additional Vita Solo instruments
Vita Pop Brass

Explore ensembles within a symphonic orchestra with this authentic-sounding but easy to use instrument. Create everything from dramatic brass staccatos through driving orchestral thrills to gentle string legato.
Also exclusive to ACID Pro 365:
Analogue Modelling Suite
Analogue Modelling Suite is another exclusive addition, just for ACID Pro 365 users. This suite of classic-style effects includes the AM|MUNITION compressor/limiter, the AM|PULSE transient modeller, AM|PHIBIA tube amplifier/channel strip and the AM|TRACK compressor/tape simulator.
If you need more punch in your sound or you need to level out a track then AM|MUNITION is the compressor/limiter for you. It is a dynamic mastering tool which can help your mix sound louder and with added definition. The plug-in can also be used as a limiter and with its combination of features, modes and parameters, it offers not only power but great creative flexibility.
The AM|PULSE transient modeller is great for getting creative with envelope characteristics. It is most commonly used on percussive or dynamic sounds although it can also be used simply for reducing background noise. AMIPULSE also includes a saturation control and mix functions within its very flexible harmonic control mode.
AM|TRACK is an analog compressor and a tape simulator combination. You can use it specifically for changing and enhancing your input signals, although the plug-in can be used to add character to any audio. Each of the compression and tape saturation sections has its own independent controls and characteristics making AM|TRACK a very flexible tool.
AM|PHIBIA combines an optical compressor with a pre and post filter unit to result in a very useful tube amplifier/channel strip. The compressor section can be used for a variety of tasks including being used as a vocal pre-amp or tube guitar amp, or for simply use it to add a warm character to any sound. The filter is very flexible too, with a variety of presets to choose from, depending on the input signal.

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 am not exaggerating when I say I cannot do what I do nearly as well without ACID. It is literally my ‘musical lifeline'!"

“I've used the ACID program as my main DAW for all of my major records. I'm addicted to the quick workflow, one-key instant pitch shifting and its surgical slicing abilities. Now that ACID 8 is out, I can load up more virtual instruments and plug-ins than ever."

"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."
Producer and Remixer
Donna Summer (Remix; I'm A Fire), Paulina Rubio (Remix; Heat Of The Night), Cole Plante (Remix; Teardrops)
"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!"

Pet Shop Boys (Remix; Vocal), Imogen Heap (Remix; Run-Time), Erasure (Remix; Sacred, I Lose Myself)
“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."
Producer and Composer
Justin Timberlake (Remix, Filthy), Basement Jaxx (Remix, Scars) | Night At The Museum, Real Like A Dream | Victoria Secret, EA Sports NBA
“ACID was the first DAW I ever touched and I was hooked immediately. It's still today a very useful tool with its quick and smooth loop functionality. ACID Pro is my go-to tool for studio mixes and CD compilations."

“ACID Pro has an optimized workflow for making dance music, and an excellent editing capability for recording & remixing.
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!"
