"Desktop music production continues to evolve as consumers are looking for new ways to create a big studio sound. We've taken our award-winning music creation platform and have enhanced it with even more sophisticated features often found in professional applications. We continue to support the growing demand for affordable audio recording and mixing software that is both consumer-friendly and capable of producing amazing studio-quality results," said Dave Chaimson.

New Features in ACID Music Studio 9
- Workflow enhancements: To reduce the amount of screen real estate used by multiple tracks in a complex project, selected groups of tracks can now be nested and collapsed into Folder Tracks, and expanded for viewing as needed. Sections functionality binds collections of events, envelopes, regions, commands and markers together, allowing them to be moved as single units in a musical arrangement.
- Input monitoring: Performers can now hear recording signals with real-time track effects, like the included Studio Devil™ British Valve Custom guitar amp.
- Automation controls: Track envelope automation allows programmable control of numerous MIDI and VST parameters.
- Improved performance: Users can now record 24-bit/96kHz audio, and experience better playback performance and faster render times with improved support for current multicore PCs.
