    Sony Introduces Acid Pro 7 with Garritan Sounds and ARIA Player

    Sony Creative Software has announced their ACID Pro 7, the next version of the acclaimed digital audio workstation software.

    ACID Pro 7 software includes the Garritan Aria for ACID Pro player and custom sample library developed in conjunction with Plogue Art et Technologie Inc. The sound library sounds have been carefully selected by SONY and the ARIA player has been specially customized for use in ACID Pro 7.

    ACID Pro 7 software offers powerful and intuitive DAW functionality for today's media professional including multitrack recording, 5.1 surround sound mixing, robust MIDI sequencing and best-in-class loop-based music production. ACID Pro 7 software enables a faster and more flexible creative environment by providing precise control over the music creation process through enhancements such as a new mixing environment, MIDI track freeze, tempo curves, improved Beatmapping, and additional import/export options.

    We are very excited to work with SONY, a leading innovator in music technology, and there was so much we gleaned from working with them. SONY has an incredibly talented team. We expect a lot of great music coming from a whole new group of users.

    All the best,

    Gary Garritan

    Gary -

    Congratulations on teaming with Sony with this project. Although I don't have Acid Pro, I own a number of versions (upgrades) of Sony's Vegas programs. The Vegas program is an EXCELLENT multi-track video/audio editing program. Again, in my eyes, Vegas is Excellent! The editing process is super intuitive and the results are nothing less than professional (especially, of course, when used by the hands of professionals). As far as I can tell, many independent event videographers are happily making a living using Vegas program. (By the way, I've actually owned the Vegas program and its predecessor when owned by Sonic Foundry.)

    This venture between you and Sony for Acid Pro may make me think hard about investing in this program. I may be wrong, but isn't Acid Pro currently only available for the PC platform? My problem is that I've started to invest heavily into the Apple computers (I own a MacPro and a MacBook Pro) and associated programs. Will the newer version of Acid Pro be available for both the Apple and PC platforms?

    Again, congratulations, Mr. Gary!

    Thanks Ted,

    I believe Acid Pro 7 is only for PC and no Mac versions are contemplated.

    Producing ARIA for SONY ACID Pro 7 really helped us a great deal. SONY's brilliant engineering team put ARIA through its paces and helped us refine the player and improve things. This will result in a better GPO ARIA soon.

    All my best,

    Gary

    This is great news, Gary. I have used Acid in the past. It's style of work flow is not my favorite but it works great for many people (including my son). I can't wait to hear some of the results from new members (or already members) using Acid Pro and Aria.

    I am a long-time acid user (that doesn't sound right does it?) and I'm really excited about the inclusion of aria. Good job!

    I own Acid 7. I had Aria when I got Finale 2009. It's quite stable in Finale.
    I did not know that the Acid version has GPO and JABB sounds. I thought Aria loaded the Garritan KP2 patches. I was wrong.
