This is everything I thought it would be and more. It has allowed me to do so much more than just loop music for electronic songs I write. I even use it to write hip-hop beats or to help me with writing rock songs. It's pretty pricey, but the features are amazing, and you will not find better quality in any other product!
Very simple & easy to learn. If you only have a need to record one track of audio at a time, this is perfect. Great for everything from band demos to full-fledged recordings to remixes. You'll get better quality audio from this than from other product costing much more.
You cant go wrong with this product. When rewired with protools its is an easy way to set up a drum loop for jammin'
I have been using software programs for over 6 years to mix and create almost every kind of music out there. I have used almost every software program on the market, and have quite a bit of experience in this field. ACID is not a bad product by any means...but it's also not great. Its features are limited compared to some similar products, and its interface can get confusing to someone who is used to some other products (cubase, reason, etc). However, it is a great product for people who are just starting out in mixing and recording their own tracks. The only thing I use ACID for is to quickly mix recordings that I do with guitars drums and vocals. For people who have not had experience with other interfaces, this is a great product since it seems to be generally intuitive and easy to use. However, with the ease of use and intuition, sony sacrafices some power. My suggestion would be that if you are serious about software, go for cubase or reason, they are more involved than acid. However, if you are more interested in fooling around and not wanting to spend much time learning a program, buy ACID.
I've tried Ableton 4, Cakewalk Guitar Tracks, Cubasis, etc... and this is the only sequencer that easily handles all of my MIDI and audio recording needs with a stable and reliable environment. I combine this with Reason 2.5 ReWire on a centrino-based laptop PC and am very happy with the results. It handles all of my vst plug-ins with ease (except the Arturia Moog Synth which ran slow and choppy when plugged-in) The included effects are pretty consistent with what Sonic Foundry designed way back in Acid 1, and the beat quantization feature makes life so much simpler. I recommend it highly to those who want a stable, all-purpose sequencer with a user friendly environment and a universal design.
I've owned all the versions of Acid from 2.0 to todays 5.0. This is great for Remxing music or creating your own music with loops. You can even use it as Multi-Track software or for recording. You could add effects in real-time and the quality is great.
This is really simple to use. Very basic, and all the plug-ins really add to it. You can even add a tad of chorus to your voice or, make it distorted if you wanted. This program isn't just for loops
