  1. GTFOH, I was using acid 4 and fruityloops 3 back in the day day in the long ago time. I wonder if its still any good. and why now?

    1. Still have Acid 3 on my old Dell and use it all the time in tandem with SoundForge 8.5. Love it and will put this new version on my newer PCs.

    2. they just did a humble bundle before this release where you could get acid 7.0 , soundforge and a bunch of other stuff for like $10 – I never had a legal version so I grabbed it just for nostalgia’s sake and to see if I used it nowadays if I approach it differently….

  2. Hopefully, the updated version will be good! I love ACID Pro and have composed many experimental pieces on it for years, as well as some dance stuff. Very nice program. Love the workflow. I doubt it can budge Ableton for DAW of choice, though. Still, it’s good to have options and this is like the return of a welcome old friend!

  3. Much of the music that was created for Newgrounds.com “back in the day” of early internet entertainment was created with Acid. I did this under the name Lavender Hill Mob for those that recall the pre-YouTube days of flash videos and games. There are many techniques unique to Acid that have been missed. I look forward to giving this a go!

  4. Acid Pro is great for doing commercials and other short clips and jingles. We used to just buy all pre-acidized packs and just a few other pieces of gear and crank them out. It’s an awesome platform for these types of time sensitive projects. I’m sure there’s guys still using it for this purpose.
