It seems that most people are going for the higher tiers here. I have literally no need for any of this, but looked at it earlier and have the 2nd tier at £3.33...

It would seem almost rude not to get it, now it's at £11.07
Go to Freebies where I have posted a link to over 63000 royalty free samples !!!!
Fantastic deal for the 30 bucks teir!
Don't need it, couldn't resist so went with the $30 option.
New version of ACID due very soon - magix.com/gb/…id/
They are gonna call it MDMA Pro!
Thanks op
I once recorded something on my computer.
This is 200 universes beyond my knowledge, but I'd love to learn how to use this.
A list of the tiers, Tier 3, with ACID Pro 7 (perhaps Pro 8 with the forthcoming update) seems very reasonable for £14.47.

Tier 1: Pay $1 (about £0.72)
MP3 Deluxe 19
Music Maker EDM Edition
Soundpool: Deeper Shades of House

Tier 2: BTA $16.90 (about £12.23)
MAGIX Video Sound Cleaning Lab
ACID Music Studio 10
SOUND FORGE Audio Studio 10

Tier 3: Pay $20 (about £14.47)
ACID Pro 7

Tier 4: Pay $30 (about £21.71)
Samplitude Pro X2 Silver
SOUND FORGE Pro 11

30 day trials of Music Studio 10 and Pro 7 are available from the Magix website.

What's the advantage of Tier 4 though? Is SOUND FORGE Pro 11 worth it?

Acid pro is pretty easy to learn as it's sample based. Load a few samples, paint a few blocks of sound press play and you've got something right there. Plenty of tutorials on YouTube.

Your not going to get update to Acid pro 8 for free.

Tier 4 are both expensive and powerful pieces of software. If they don't interest you then pass on them and all the other software will have you covered for all your production needs.

Honestly get this ,at least get Acid Music studio ,it is ideal for beginners ,great instructions yet almost at pro level ,there are many tuition videos available and you tube ,Honestly I cannot play or read music but I love music and through this I just played around a bit here and there and felt more comfortable and confident and wow i could express myself in music ,go on have a go ,listen to yourself ,it is an amazing experience and this will cost you very little ,it is daunting in the begining but like a new car ,enjoy the ride !
It is also great for midi use !
Should be fun to mess around with and see what I can create Opted for the $30 full package. I was charged just over £22 via Paypal. Probably the Paypal conversion rate.
From reading around acid studio 10 is more stable than acid pro 7(both of which are 32 bit)

I already ownAcid Studio and no problems but Acid Pro used to really be intensive and at its time push your system to the limits and crash ,but now with an up to date PC with good memory and ram should handle well !
My boy basically wants to be Skrillex, and is asking for a Launchpad for his birthday. Would this go well with that? Don't know much about this area myself.

Released in 2009 apparently so in other words your phone could run this nowadays!

If I went for the top tier, are there any vst plugins included with each of the programs?

Sound Forge comes with some but they are focused on audio mastering/editing rather than DAW usage.
For cheap VSTs try here: Pluginboutique

There is some good stuff for iOS such as the Korg stuff and Roli and many others.
Better with an iPad rather than a phone but I have a Korg app on my Android phone which is fun.
Doesn't compete with this but the hardware could run it which was my point.

At this price not much of a risk .this software has been used by many major groups ,it works for total amateur to total elite ,Sony just sold all this to Magix as they bought and destroyed a great company and then did nothing, Acid can do anything ,any style , you do not need an instrument and can be used alone , but a launchpad would be nice ,though that has preferences for Ableton Software which is expensive ,personally for me Acid is better and can probably user friendly to most keyboards ,at this price its dinner for 2 at Harvesters
I have little to no experience with making music. I can't read music or play an instrument yet I have always wanted to try my hand at making tunes.

Straight up, how good would this entire bundle be for me?

Don't want to waste £20 on something I'll use once, get frustrated with and then ditch.

Comments welcome...
Nice!!! Heat!

IS there a place that does plug-in bundles or anything along those lines? Love me some new plug ins!

These are a great entry into computer based music. Sample based composing will get you used to building music using blocks. Then depending how quickly you get the hang of it, you might want to progress onto an actual DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and start making music at the note level.

Hope this makes sense...
Note that Samplitude Pro X2 Silver only supports 8 tracks and 4 plugins per track, so is pretty crippled as a DAW.
Do any other DAWs (or plugin) handle acid style slicing beat matching and pitching as well?
I like Reaper but it's just a basic DAW afaik and doesn't do thus as well as I remember Acid did years ago.

Great heat, soundforge is great for manipulation including phase inversion and de-clicking / de-essing. Acid is a reasonable DAW but Sony left it gathering dust and Reason / FL Studio / Ableton all caught up. However Acid is still my go to for putting vocals into tracks purely with how simple it is to slice, temp match and chain FX such as reverb and delay.

Can you explain how FL or Reason or AL compare?

Can you explain how FL or Reason or AL compare?


FL has great VST and VSTi support, better ASIO handling and a bunch of useful plugins right out the bat. It’s chaining and automation is second to none IMO as well. It’s easier to pick up for beginners as there’s a bunch of projects presaved so you can learn how they were put together and how the DAW works. Its piano roll editing is also quite handy for slicing.

Reason is all about the refills and packs, anyone producing electronic music will have used the same refill packs and there’s just classic sounds all over the place.

Ableton live has great cross project support between operating systems so if you’re collaborating and some are on Mac and some windows it doesn’t matter. It also has good automation and chaining but you either prefer Ableton or FL UI as they’re quite different.

FL and AL both support 64bit which allows for some heavy projects without grinding your CPU to 100%

Acid is a good DAW but it’s a bit more raw to use comparatively if that makes sense. It also doesn’t like playing ball with some VST and FX which is why I mainly use it for after project works like vocals. It also eats CPU like nothing else especially when only 32 bit.

Ableton has warp function, it’s pretty in depth and you can pick your desired manipulation calculations for retaining pitch / removing gaps. It uses the same method acid does whereby you map the downbeats for the original tempo. It’s a good four / five step process each time you wanna change the tempo if it calculated wrong however tonally it sounds better than Acid’s work.

FL studio doesn’t have a particularly good implementation of warping as it relies heavily on the fruity slicer and stretching the individual samples rather than the whole track tempo tapped.

Acid is loved for that sort of stuff as it makes it very simple, there’s a beatmapping wizard when you load a file larger than a single sample cycle and you beatmap four bars of a track and its stretched to your project tempo, with the ability to redefine the tempo to bring things back in if it got it wrong. There’s a preserve pitch when stretching option that retains pitch and some predefined methods but named silly things like Music 1,2,3,4,5 Drums 1,2,3,4,5 etc rather than the actual mathematical method used. It also retains that beatmapped information for the whole file, regardless of how you slice it in the DAW workspace which is great for making mashups. It stores this tempo and peak information in a .SFK file in the same directory as the audio track

It’s OK at doing it, when retaining pitch usually you can tell when a sample has been stretched as it sounds a little grainy but you can hide some of that with a bit of reverb and delay. It also allows for key shifting however it has no notion of major or minor so your results may sound like chipmunks or whales if you’re trying to key shift too far.

Tbh I haven’t used it. I haven’t opened reason in about a year. Apparently it turns your audio file into a refill (REX file) so you can use it in the same manner according to this guide - http://cdm.link/2013/04/reason-7s-new-tools-for-slicing-stretching-retiming-audio-qa-tutorial-vid/
