Magix ACID Pro 9 (Academic)

ACID Pro 9 is where creativity meets inspiration, a DAW designed for every producer to realize their music making ambitions. This is where ease of use goes hand-in-hand with professional results, where ACID loops unleash your creativity, and where hi-end instruments and effects add layers of sophistication. All-new features for the brand new ACID Pro 9 include the MIDI Playable Chopper – where you play ACID like an instrument, remixing, jamming and composing – plus plug-ins and a ton of new ACIDized loops and effects worth $1,000.


Loops, start with something great

At its heart, ACID Pro 9 uses ACIDized loops which are at the core of creative loop-based music production. Yet these are so much more than simple audio files. They contain pitch, length and transient data and can be edited and manipulated in real time and easily mixed together to make complete pieces of music.
  • Multitrack Recording
    ACID Pro 9 offers uncompromising 24-bit, 192kHz multitrack audio recording. With an array of pro-level features, it and is equally at home being used for the recording an entire band in the studio as it is for creating loop or MIDI-based compositions on the road or at home.
  • High-Fidelity Audio
    ACID Pro 9 has a 64-bit engine and really works with your PC to bring maximum power and efficiency to your music making. Whether you are making 24-bit, 192kHz multitrack recordings, mixing with multiple effects in real time, or composing with the dozens of plug-in instruments, ACID Pro 9 will step up to the plate and offer you all the latency free power you need.
  • Superior Mixing
    With a dedicated and fully-featured mixing console ACID Pro 9 offers an incredibly flexible recording environment. It's easy to assign plug-in effects, adjust the routing or work with external effects and MIDI devices. ACID Pro 9 supports control surfaces such as Mackie Control and Frontier Design TranzPort so you can enjoy a more traditional hardware mixing experience.
  • Flexible Routing
    ACID Pro 9's mixing console might look like a traditional studio mixer but you can easily customize it to make it more suited to your workflow. An array of routing options allows for total recording flexibility. It's easy, for example, to record external audio utilizing ACID Pro 9's effects. You can also use external effects processors on tracks and busses, create complex submixes with bus-to-bus routing, and monitor everything in real time. ACID Pro 9 is also set up for mixing surround projects, with a surround panner for precise control over channel positions.
  • Control Surface Support
    ACID Pro 9 supports Mackie Control Universal and Frontier Design TranzPort MID controllers. You can use one Mackie Control Universal (with up to four Mackie Control Universal Extenders), one Frontier TranzPort, and up to five generic control surfaces with ACID. Control surfaces can be custom mapped and help you stay organized by knowing which channels are dedicated to external control.
  • Arrange Tools
    ACID Pro 9 offers many creative tools for today's producer. It's easy to divide your project into logical sections and then arrange them on the timeline. Tracks can be organized by placing them into Track Folders and then cluster editing allows you to drag, pitch-shift, cut, copy, and paste whole sections of an arrangement to help you easily create complete tunes.

Remixing in ACID Pro

ACID Pro 9's many features include the Beatmapper and Chopper tools which make remixing music easy. Beatmapper helps you identify tempo and time signature information from external audio files so you can add ACIDized files to it to create a remix.

ACID Pro 9's Chopper tool slices up your audio file and also helps you create impressive drum fills, stutters, and DJ effects. Chopper and Beatmapper make ACID Pro 9 a powerful DAW for remixers and dance producers.
  • Beatmapper
    Beatmapper offers a super fast and slick process to remix music in ACID Pro 9. It identifies the tempo and time signature information in external audio files – including MP3s and complete songs – and allows you to label and edit the file with that information. You can then create Beatmap songs and when other clips are added, they all lock to the tempo of the imported file allowing quick and easy remixing. Beatmapped audio files can also have their tempos and pitches edited for maximum flexibility.
  • Chopper
    Chopper is a tool that allows you to slice and dice an audio file so you can re-order, remix, change its groove and replay it. It creates amazing rhythmic variations of the original audio and you can create many of your own customized samples from one original loop. Chopped events will play in sync with your ACID Pro 9 projects, and you can even use keyboard commands to drop events from the Chopper onto the timeline in real time.

The Virtual Instruments

  • Urban Drums
    This is the perfect instrument for your beat needs. It contains enough kicks and hits for many genres – from hip hop to dubstep – and it's easy to program too. Just play the pads and hit record.
  • Drum Engine
    Drum Engine features a similar interface to the legendary Akai MPC sampler, so you can easily create incredible grooves. Choose from a wide variety of kits and sounds to make beats in a range of styles.
  • Concert Grand
    We meticulously sampled the sounds of a concert grand being played in one of the best concert halls to bring you this incredible piano. All the power and detail of the real instrument shines through.
  • Pop Drums
    This is a great drum instrument for many chart music genres. Play huge traps beats, thumping techno or furious metal, all from a single top-quality instrument, loaded with great sounds.
  • Electric Piano
    All your vintage electric piano needs are catered for here. It's great for smokey jazz, soulful blues or swinging funk, with on-board effects adding to the authenticity of the sound.
  • Rock Drums
    Add the dynamic power of rock to your music! All the heavy drums you could ever need: from driving metal to powerful live beats that sound like they're being played by the biggest bands in the world!
  • Lead Synth
    Lead Synth produces incredible electronic sounds that will cut through any mix. With its virtual analogue heart, it can produce high-end, high-quality leads for all genres of music.
  • Electric Bass
    Electric Bass is an instrument that is perfect for laid-back funk riffs, soul ballads or as a groovy foundation for more current genres. It's an elegantly-designed plug-in with a multitude of options for custom sound design.

MIDI made easy

ACID Pro features some incredibly comprehensive, sophisticated and precise MIDI editing features. These include direct MIDI editing of data within the timeline, track freeze to audio, Keyframe automation and flexible drum editing. You get all the MIDI features you would expect from a high end DAW but, with user-friendly tools and clear editing environments, MIDI control in ACID is intuitive, fun and hassle free.
  • Inline Editing
    Inline Editing allows you alter MIDI data directly in ACID's timeline within traditional piano roll and drum grid interfaces. You can edit note positions, velocities, pitch bends and controller information all on the main multitrack interface so there's no need to open another edit window.
  • Drum Grid Mode
    Drum Grid Mode is ACID Pro 9's easy and intuitive way of editing beats directly on the software's timeline. The grid style edit window shows all the drum parts and you can easily move, add or delete beats.
  • MIDI Track Freeze
    This allows you to turn MIDI tracks that are being triggered by software instruments into audio. Freezing a track like this means less instruments need to be running in real time so it conserves valuable CPU processing power.
  • MIDI Filtering and Processing
    Processing of multiple events or tracks of MIDI data can also be done directly on the ACID Pro 9 timeline. You can use quantization and global editing of velocity values, note event duration and more.
  • MIDI Track Envelopes and Keyframes
    ACID Pro 9 utilizes envelope and keyframe automation features. All MIDI continuous controller data used to edit parameters like pitch, modulation and expression – or indeed the controls of a soft synth – can be modified with smooth transitions. You can also use envelopes and keyframes on individual clips or make larger, project-wide changes.
  • Drum and Patch Map Editors
    Within ACID Pro 9 you can efficiently create and edit drum maps. This means that you can use templates to label patch and drum names for hardware or software-based MIDI synthesizers and drum machines. Templates can also be easily saved and recalled.
  • VST2/VST3 Engine with 32-bit Bridge
    With both the new VST2/VST3 engine and the 32-bit bridge you can run the latest plug-ins in ACID Pro and even bring your favourite older plug-ins into its sleek 64-bit ACID environment.
  • ARA2 Support
    ACID Pro 9 is now ARA2 compatible - for a more efficient interaction with other ARA2 plug-ins. This enables real-time audio editing, a much faster workflow and an improved user experience.
