It was a loop -based music sequencer , where Acid loop files could be simply dragged and dropped and automatically adjust itself to the tempo and key of a song with virtually no sonic degradation. It became very popular with composers, producers, and DJs, in the late s and early s, interested in quickly creating beats, music textures, or complete compositions and orchestrations, that would work with virtually any tempo or key signature, and these loops would adjust automatically. To be able to do this, Sony's Acid Pro uses specially prepared or "Acidized" music wave files that can be prepared using an audio editing tool such as Sound Forge.
