ACID® PRO 4.0
ACID® PRO 4.0 is the latest version of Sonic Foundry's award-winning

original, royalty-free music. Use ACID to create songs, remix
tracks, produce 5.1 surround audio mixes, develop music beds,
score videos and create music for web sites and Flash animations.
While this revolutionary tool is intuitive and easy to use, its
powerful enough for professional production. Work with a huge
assortment of loops in multiple genres. ACID lets users compose
using unlimited tracks of audio and MIDI, import and Beatmap complete
songs. ACID PRO saves to a variety of formats such as WAV, WMA,
RM, AVI, and MP3.

as you like with unlimited tracks. Apply VSTi soft synths, create
amazing 5.1 surround mixes, and perform video scoring.

fades, EQ changes, and effects by utilizing new automation parameters
and envelope control. ACID 4.0 includes new Sonic Foundry automated
effects such as Resonant Filters, Track EQ, and Flange/Wah Wah/Phase.
