Sony ACID Pro 6 Power!: The Official Guide (Power!) (Paperback)
by D. Eric Franks (Author)
Sony Acid Pro 6 Power! Product Description
Now reformulated to add multi-track recording, MIDI sequencing, and a full virtual instrument library to its superior looping functionality, ACID Pro 6 is now a fully capable Digital Audio Workstation. With such a major upgrade, ACID has become a better tool for song creation, deejaying, film scoring, and multimedia development, but it has also become more complex. ACID Pro 6 Power!: The Official Guide is the perfect resource for those new to ACID or those who are familiar with previous versions but need to get up to speed on the myriad new features. There is something in ACID Pro 6 Power! for users of any skill level. The clear and solid examples in the first few chapters introduce the user interface and program workflow. The book then moves on to music theory concepts, which are invaluable to those who want to move beyond casually playing with ACID into serious music composition and song creation. The final goal of the book is to get into some of the more technical aspects of ACID. You will learn how to polish your masterpieces using effects processing. And because publishing and sharing your newly created music is the ultimate goal, you'll also learn how to burn industry-standard CDs and produce highly compressed MP3 files for the Internet. You can dive into numerous fascinating topics, from amazing MIDI technology to recording your own vocals and solo jams. ACID Pro 6 Power! is all you need to get started. The companion DVD includes fully functioning time-limited demos of ACID, CD Architect, DVD Architect, Jam Trax XPress, Sound Forge, Vegas, and much more, plus training videos with additional tutorials, and over 500 sample loops to use in your own productions!
