Sony Acid Music Studio 8.0
3 April 2011
Summary: Verdict: Though a good effort by Sony the simplicity of Acid Music Studio has been diluted owing to the intimidating interface. The options on offer bring it closer to its professional counterpart however, so if you’ve got the know-how, this is a decent app.
Pros: New VST instrument plug-ins, competent mixing console, new algorithms.
Cons: Only 16-bit recording and mixing, complicated interface for novice users.
Excerpt: Our dreams of moonlighting as DJs will likely never come to pass, but we can at least sharpen our remixing skills with Sony’s Acid Music Studio. Acid has been around for years, but this newb-friendly version of the $375 Acid Pro has delights that are sure to please any aspiring club-thumper. Whereas programs like Ableton come with built-in synthesizers that allow you to create your own musical loops, Acid focuses on organizing preconstructed loops into songs.
Pros: Simple; nice tutorial; powerful; good value.
