Sony Acid Pro 6.0 computer-based recording software enables you to use its on-board vocal processor to compose and edit vocal recordings. Sony Acid Pro 6.0 supports audio plug-ins such as VST and DirectX along with its own vocal manipulation plug-ins. Additional features such as surround panner and volume fader enhance the interface's vocal effect ability. To edit and add voice effects, you must have a vocal file that was created in Acid or an audio sample in WAV, MP3 or MIDI format.
