ACID Pro 7
Acid Pro 7
I was already using Acid Studio. I liked what I read about Acid Pro 7. I decided to purchase Acid Pro. 7. I love the ease of use for both the loops and recording. The mixing counsel is very good and the plugins both Sony and other third party vendors work outstanding. Everyone who has heard the new projects have been very impressed. I would highly recommend this software.

Acid Pro 7
I have used ACID Pro since version 1. I am happy to see it grow into a full-featured DAW (and at a great price too)!

still the best in terms of music productivity
I'm a loyal user of ACID PRO since version 3 and since then I have tried also many other DAWs but when it comes to productivity ACID is still the best. I'm a guitar player and a patch worker as far as samples are concerned and in this respect the chopper is unbeatable for chasing the best segment in a 16 measure guitar/bass playing while samples easily fitting the BPM and Pitch of the project is something that I cannot give up. Unfortunately version 7 is still battling a bit with Windows 8 so that stability is not what it was used to be with earlier versions of Acid and Windows. Hopefully they will put remedy to this problem.
That said, the mixing and mastering section is not that great at this stage so other daws might have a much better approach and tools in this regard.
A dream ? a possible version for Mac.

Acid Pro 7 mixed blessing
A lot of power for the price. The software has glitches and even blames the owner operator for it's own shortcomings. ie "You did something wrong your last session." The digital editing is weak and not intuitive. Finding a vst plugin that works with the program is like finding a needle in a haystack. Each time you open a project one has to set three different file locations to ensure that all the files go into one folder. (Portability)
The wave recording goes well and the tracks are easily scalable. There is no one key recording. Most of the common functions have a button on the interface.

Just keeps getting better
I have been using Acid since the early Sonic Foundry days and have watched it continually improve. The pro version is powerful enough it could function as your only DAW solution and deliver flawless results. I highly recommend the Acid family to anyone who wants to create music.

Acid Pro 7 is perfect for what I do.
I enjoy sitting at home laying tracks to put on Youtube and Soundcloud, (mostly to entertain family, friends and coworkers.) I use a Line 6 Interface and POD farm 2.0. I had to fiddle with the Latency for a couple of minutes but once that was set, I had no problem going to work. I find Acid Pro 7 to be a lot easier to work with then other recording software I've tried. The tutorial is a bit complicated and not easy to digest all at one sitting, but I found that I could make the program do what I wanted it to do by just goofing with it.

Good Choice For Loop Based Music Production
I'm a long time ACID Pro user. It just keeps getting better. One of its amazing features is the ability manipulate loops on the fly while a project is playing back. With addition of soft-synth recording via MIDI ACID is the best music production tool for crating music tracks for video production. It also works well for creating temp music tracks for videos.

ACID for recording is WAY better than the leading brand.
I recently bought a new interface for my studio. I paid extra for the one that came with an express version of one of the most well known applications for recording. I found the GUI on that software cryptic, counter intuitive, and simply no fun to use.
Went back to my old standby - ACID Pro, and upgraded to 7. Now I am again recording with speed, ease, power and just amazing versatility. I dont even use prerecorded loops very much, ACID is so good just as a recording platform. (I make loops right from the audio tracks I record - endless possibilities) I program and edit MIDI with keys and drums, and trigger all the amazing sounds that come in the VSTi software which is included with ACID. Unlike other leading applications out there, I can also mix in 5:1 surround sound - and in today's technological terms, that is NOT a gimmicky feature at all. Just try to mix a movie soundtrack or television commercial in stereo these days. You can do it, but you shouldn't.
I trolled around in some other programs, and I always come back to ACID. It is the most intuitive music program in the market. I wanna think about the music when I work, not the friggin software. ACID lets me do that.
