Acid pro 7 help

Postby peter24 » Wed Dec 18, 2019 10:11 pm

I am brand new to music. I used to play around in GarageBand for mac a while ago. I just got acid pro 7. now I noticed that there are no pre-recorded beats like there are in GarageBand. How do I get or buy these pre-recorded beats such as drums, trumpets to make my own beats and music?

From memory (I had Acid 4 through to 7 but haven’t used it for years) it should come with a ton of ‘ acid loops’ which go into a library which you can browse and audition from the main window. Perhaps you need to download and install more files?

You can download the products from Magix - hopefully the bundled loops are included.

You need your serial number for the product. If you have an older copy purchased from Sony (before they sold it to Magix) your serial number will still be in the 'My account section' on:

https://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/

When you click download it then sends you to Magix Downloads and asks for the serial number so remember to copy it when on the Sony site.

You can also buy Acid loops on CD or as a download so check Ebay for old CD's. You can buy loops from Magix direct:
