Editors' Review

+

ACID Pro 6 isn't for the casual musician. It's full-featured for those who know their way around a mixing console, but can be overwhelming for newbies.

The latest update features full multitrack and MIDI support, two long-standing strikes against earlier versions. It's hard to understate the usefulness of the clean interface, given the overwhelming number of options available. The hot keys for accessing the major option windows have been coded as ALT plus an ascending number, making them easy to remember.

More than 1,000 loops are included so you don't have to record your own before beginning to mix it up. ACID Pro has got chops, too: proprietary looping technology, video integration, and even plug-in support, assuming you need to do something that isn't included.

Beginners and even intermediates should give this a pass because of the complexity. Knowing the real-world analogues of the features is a big help; otherwise, it's like giving a six-year-old a Stradivarius. You can't opt out of installing the Microsoft MySQL database manager, and registering for the trial version is also required. The price tag of $375 sounds high, but not compared to similar programs. Free upgrades are not included.

Assuming you've got the chops, ACID Pro will make your music-editing experience a smooth, pain-free trip.

"Multiple Simultaneous Recording Tracks"

April 03, 2008  |  By OllieJB

 |  Version: Acid Pro 6.0c build 355

Pros

I've always liked ACID for multitrack recording on solo projects, now it will record as many tracks at once as your hardware is capable of. Two mono tracks with a normal soundcard, or just plug in as many USB soundcards as you can get your hands on. I've had it running with an on-board soundcard and an additional PCI soundcard on one system (W2K), and on a lapop with on-board sound and two USB soundcards (yep, 6 inputs simultaneously) - and the USB devices were just cheap no-brand jobbies that installed themselves under XP Pro.

Cons

The bundled VST effects were not too spectacuar...

"Its awesome and user friendly for a newbie"

January 18, 2008  |  By jazmine11

 |  Version: Acid Pro 6.0c build 355

Pros

I don't usually mix music, but wanted to make something special for my daughters gymnastics routine. It takes some time to figure out, because I don't like to read directions. I was amazed at what I could do. I am enjoying working on this program. I wish I knew if the express would work as well because I would purchase it. I don't believe I need something this advanced, but the Acid express doesnt allow you to do much with the free download. To me, that makes it difficult to see whether or not it will be sufficient.

Cons

My only gripe, was the download had to be done twice. As soon as I closed the program, I was prompted to give them my key number for the purchased program when I reopened it the same day. I was able to uninstall it and fortunately, they allowed to download it again.
