I bought this program over the Christmas holidays with the intention of doing some home recording. Being a complete novice to recording, I wanted something that was user friendly and included some cool features. Suffice it to say, this product exceeded my expectations.Out of the box, ACID has a great selection of effects and loops. I especially like the acoustic drum loops. The only problem I had was with installation, but that was a simple fix (I just had to update my media player).I'm sure it may not be advanced enough for some audiophiles, but I'm more than happy with the results that I get. I use an audio-technica AT2020 USB microphone to record and it works perfectly. You can cut, paste and edit sound like crazy and everytime you use it you figure out a new trick. I also like the fact that it is easy to render recordings to MP3 format. However, like the previous reviewer noted, it is extremely addictive.
First off, let me say that I am pleased with this program. As you may know, it is much cheaper than Acid Pro 7...but for the average Joe recording from his home, this will work just fine. It has very good features and is easy to use once you get a hang of the format. It is excellent for producing drum/bass, electronic, and rap styles of music; however, get the right drum samples and you can produce any style you wish. I would highly recommend this program. The only warning I have...it is extremely addictive!
