MAGIX Software announced the release of a brand new ACID Pro software package now featuring a series of advanced features including a source separation algorithm from zynaptiq and many updates to version 9. ACID Pro Next is now a much more complete DAW targeting music production, including the integration of zynaptiq' STEM MAKER technology that splits any existing song into different tracks, a new MIDI Playable Chopper, and many new creative possibilities for sampling manipulations.

Zynaptiq is one of the most innovative software companies, founded by Denis H. Goekdag (CEO) and Stephan M. Bernsee (CTO) in 2011, and located in Hannover, Germany. Zynaptiq is renowned for its advanced processing and analyzing tools, including some of the best high quality time stretching, pitch shifting, formant shifting, and pitch correction tools currently in the market. The company's signal processing techniques are also adapted in a series of plug-ins for restoration and mastering, as well as several creative tools for music manipulation and remixing.

“We are thrilled to license STEM MAKER to MAGIX Software's ACID Pro Next. We see ACID as a perfect match for our mission of pushing the boundaries – ACID has a long history of innovating how music is made. In that regard, the direct integration of our STEM MAKER into the creative workflow represents a quantum leap – and opens up the benefits of state of the art artificial intelligence signal processing technology to a huge creative audience,” says Denis Gökdag, zynaptiq CEO.

At its core, ACID Pro Next ($399.99) utilizes ACID's world-famous and innovative audio loop production. With the addition of other advanced features such as the integration with Celemony's Melodyne Essential, exclusive instruments, and gigabytes of ACIDized loops for composition across many genres, ACID Pro Next is now the most powerful software package in the ACID range, delivering next-level music production technology.

MAGIX is also offering flexible subscription options to their new DAW. ACID Pro Next 365 ($599.99) comprises all features of the perpetual license with the added advantage of instant updates, new features and patches, plus exclusive bonus content in the form of extra plug-in instruments and effects. Subscriptions to ACID Pro Next 365 start at $19.99 per month. With the ACID Pro Next Suite MAGIX adds a wide array of extra content to the software such as the Independence Pro Plus Suite with 12 GB of sounds and 500 presets, ten exclusive Vita instruments, nine exclusive effects and two extra packs of loops.

ACID Pro 9 ($149.99) is the latest incarnation of the legendary DAW renowned the world over for its innovative audio looping technology, powerful multitrack recording and high-end audio and MIDI features – all set within an easy-to-use interface. The new version 9 includes the new MIDI Playable Chopper plus all the performance enhancements and most of the additions in the all-new Next version except for the source separation. ACID Pro is also available on subscription starting at $7.99 per month.

Both versions comprise advanced features for professional mastering – including new loudness metering tools – allowing audio to be monitored with ultimate precision. ACID Pro Next and ACID Pro 9 are now available online and in stores worldwide.
