Magix Acid Pro (originally owned by Sonic Foundry, then Sony, and now Magix) was the original loop production program. It allowed users to toss any loop on the timeline and have the loops automatically conform to the key and tempo of the project (or the first loop). Over the years Acid Pro has become a full DAW with multi-track audio recording and MIDI functionality. These features continue to be developed, but Acid Pro still is first and foremost a loop-based creation program. MIDI and audio recording functionality simply doesn’t compete with most of the other DAWs on the market.
