From the File menu, choose Real-Time Render to render your project in real time.

Real-time rendering is a playback mode that renders your project to .wav (or .w64) format. Real-time rendering allows you to include the output from an external input source such as a hardware synth or effects processor with your project.

Acid Pro  Real Time RenderingNotes:

  • When you start real-time rendering, any track that is armed for recording will be unarmed. You cannot arm a track for recording or start recording in real-time rendering mode.

  • When rendering a project that does not use external audio hardware, real-time rendering and normal rendering will produce the same output. Real-time rendering will take longer to complete, allowing you to monitor the rendered file as it is created.

  • If metronome count in is enabled, it will be turned off before real-time rendering begins. If the metronome is enabled for playback, it will not be included in the rendered output.

  1. From the File menu, choose Real-Time Render.
