ACID Pro 10 now includes sidechaining and Melodyne 5 essential

It's here – the moment that the ACID community has long been waiting for. ACID Pro 10 has received a powerful new update and now features sidechaining and Melodyne essential 5.


ACID Pro 10 is a true institution among DAWs, with a mix of simple operation, unique loop-based workflow and comprehensive range of functions that makes the program a powerful tool for audio production. Top international producers such as Dimitri Vegas are fans of ACID's abilities. Now, ACID Pro 10 has just received a powerful update that enables users to meet the highest demands head-on. It's all about two new components – sidechaining and Melodyne essential 5.


Whether used in EDM, techno, lo-fi or hip-hop, sidechaining has become an indispensable tool for contemporary music production. The new sidechaining function in ACID Pro 10 enables you to make your kicks cut through more powerfully than ever before. In technical terms, sidechaining involves the activation of an effect via a separate audio signal. The classic pumping effect is created by placing other instruments behind the power of the kick drum. This makes basslines more powerful and gives vocals more room.

Melodyne 5 essential

The plug-in Melodyne 5 essential also features a significant improvement in performance. Melodyne 5 essential allows for real-time audio editing in the highest possible quality. The improved "melodic" algorithm simplifies vocal editing and creates a more natural sound. In addition, the chord track with included chord recognition makes working with vocal tracks easier for ACID Pro 10 users. Plus, they can also benefit from a more musical analysis of deviations in sound.
