ACID Pro 8 Coming Spring 2018

So I stumbled upon this last night.
ACID Pro & ACID Music Studio – Simply produce music

Sounds like it's totally legit, MAGIX bought the rights to ACID Pro (and SoundForge) and are releasing a new version this spring.

I have fond fond memories of working with Acid Pro 3.0 in the late 90s/00s, 7 was always a bit too buggy, and switched to Reaper when I started working more in a band context years ago.

Fast forward, I'm doing a lot more solo writing and I'm pretty excited about this.

hey that's cool. I remember using Acid Pro as well. Still have it loaded on my old Vaio desktop. Interesting they would keep the name. Is it still to be on the more affordable end?

I'm really excited for this. It was a great tool for auditioning and layering samples. Honestly, I hope they upgrade it enough that I can just use it as my DAW.

I still have version 7 on my PC. I loved Acid. Such a fast way to create. The summing engine was not very good. Hope they improve it. Always hated having to export my project for mix down on another DAW app.

I wish there was some more news on this. Anyone heard anything lately?

Someone in the RAP/Hip-Hop section of the forum posted that they were part of Beta testing a couple weeks ago. They asked for some input about what everyone likes/dislikes about previous versions.

I haven't seen any official news for the last few months though.

They need to provide the original colour theme, at the moment there is only the dark version. Acid Pro 8 keeps crashing for me, I guess this new 64bit does not like 32bit plugins? Its strange they would release such a classic DAW 10 years later with these basic issues present.
