Probably Good if you're Experienced
Pros: The stuff that comes with it is fun to listen to
Cons: Comes with virtually no help on how to use, create, record - the tutorials seem specific to beat loops and using canned recordings of samples and stuff. Cannot figure this thing out for the life of me. Not for a noob I guess. Wish I'd read the other reviews stating such before I bought it.
Other Thoughts: I own and use Sony Vegas HD, which has a similar layout and video tutorials - no problem using that and figuring out how it works.

Have to agree with review 1
Pros: I've been a fan of Acid products from the beginning ,you need a fast machine,lots of Ram and plenty of gigs.
Cons: Midi can be frustrating if you don't know what you are doing or there is incompatibility.
Other Thoughts: This is a really cheap solution for someone who does a lot of editing and understands the basics of home studio recording.

Acid is Under Rated
Pros: Great multi-track recorder, effects, when used properly can really add to a track and it has a great built in synthesizer that can imitate any instrument you can program in or find a pack for online. It also allows for midi connections and is very easy to use with amps and audio interfaces.
Cons: This is not Audacity, let me get it out there right away, this is not a simple plug-n-play program. People call it basic, but honestly it's entry-level professional and as such, it's easy to mess up.
Other Thoughts: In short, this is a cheap, entry level professional multi-track recorder that includes a sythensizer with an amplitude of features, inputs and filters. There are track packs full of midis and general high-definition sounds, all royalty free called Acid Loops which I highly recommend you pick up if you are looking to mix a track.

Pros: Cheap Windows 7 - multi track recorder. Was only 29 bucks on sale here in a combo. Lots of bells and whistles.
Cons: Cant even play back a .wav file without making it sound like a highly compressed MP3. Compared Windows media player playback with a loaded wav file and the difference is night and day.
Other Thoughts: If it would have cost any more, I would have sent it back for a refund. At least it was obvious right away how bad it was, before I invested much time on the learning curve. I usually avoid Sony products because of the low quality of their products. Just needed a reminder I guess.
