As the German software house describes, ACID Music Studio 11 "is the ideal way to join the ACID music community and discover why so many producers across the world are choosing this unique approach to making music." As with ACID Pro, the latest version of ACID Music Studio has been completely overhauled with a powerful 64-bit engine, a new interface and a wealth of added features and plug-ins that bring professional music production to a whole new audience. With eight amazing new instruments, six top-quality effects and more than 2,500 new ACIDized loops, ACID Music Studio 11 was designed to combine everything needed to turn inspiration into great music. Pioneer of the "elastic audio" concept and loop-based composition software, the new ACID environment now invites users to compose, add tracks, instruments and ideas with just a few clicks. Of course, always allowing powerful audio editing, changing the pitch and tempo in real-time.
Besides its new 64-bit architecture, ACID Music Studio 11 comes with the possibility to record up to 24-bit/192kHz high-quality multitrack audio. Inline Editing allows for intricate or sweeping edits directly on ACID's timeline, and the familiar Drum Grid mode makes it easy to create new beats. ACID Music Studio 11 also includes numerous of sophisticated features that one would only expect to find in DAWs for professional beat producers – including Multiple Event Editing, MIDI track freeze and Keyframe Automation, which facilitates all real-time edits to be recorded as part of the mix. It even features tools like Beatmapper and Chopper, making it a powerful remix tool as well.
With all of its advanced new features and fast workflow, essentially MAGIX is pitching ACID Music Studio 11 as an intuitive solution for all creative music needs, rivaling the popular Ableton Live, but also competing with FL Studio and other loop-based music production tools.
As Torsten Heise, ACID Music Studio 11's product manager, says: “ACID defined the concept of loop-based music production over two decades ago. In ACID Music Studio 11, we have added a great deal of features, but also refined the workflow with a brand-new GUI so that your musical ideas can be realized quickly and easily. Add rock solid reliability to this slick and inspiring environment and we believe that you can focus totally on what is most important: your music making. With advanced new features and plug-ins, professional music production is now accessible to everyone.”
ACID Music Studio 11 is now available for $59.99.
