The feature list of ACID Pro 7 is like a laundry list of essential audio editing tools and then some. Because it started out as a loop-based digital audio workstation application, it has numerous audio editing features that are specifically designed and optimized to be used on audio loops or audio snippets. The major features of this program include multi-track audio recording, midi sequencing, support for VSTi virtual instruments, multiple bus output, video tracking and inline track editing. These are definitely features that may not be suitable for beginners, and that's just the major features.
Another major feature of ACID Pro 7 is the new and improved mixer. Previous versions of the software had a mixer that was too basic, something that has already been surpassed even by some free digital audio workstations. The new and improved mixer now makes it easier for users to balance, route and carry out other fundamental audio mixing tasks. One innovation of ACID Pro 7 can be found in this new mixer. The zoom function lets users change the size of multiple opened tracks at the same time all with the simple action of moving the slider.
Aside from improved features from previous versions, there are also new features added to this version. Support for multiprocessing, the ability to freeze midi tracks and a new plug-in bundle have all been introduced in this new version of ACID Pro. A new algorithm called zplane's elastique Pro timestretching also makes its debut in ACID Pro 7. This algorithm complements the existing timestretching capability, which makes a lot of professional audio editors quite excited.
This software feels a lot more like a full pledged digital audio workstation than its predecessors. Multiple input buses and real time rendering makes multi-track recording easier than the versions that came before it.
