I find it very interesting that you would ask this pro forum place, instead of asking current Magix community? How about that?

Well, this item goes back a long way, I am still using my early version designed for Windows98SE (remember that?). I bought it sometime ago from a real computer store aka ComputerUSA (remember that?) (hmm, remember parent company Radio Shack USA ?) hmmm?

I have the 2015 premium to supplement my Acid PRO 7 and Acid studio 10. It interfaced well with my PX-5S.

This is interesting - the program appears to do loops, midi and audio, so the question to be asked is

Does Acid have anything this program doesn't?

Be interested to hear from anyone who knows both programs.

I use Samplitude, this is a sort of Samp. Lite with some bells and whistles thrown in...really great sound and the VSTi-s are really a lot of bang for the buck....You really can't lose at the price they offer these programs.

The reason I chose to inquire about this program on a "pro" forum, as opposed to the Magix forum, is my perception (right or wrong) that I would receive a more valid response on the pro forum, especially as I use these various software titles in a pro environment (I make money by using them. That's how I define "pro.")

The fact that you're still using it, VideoTguy, says to me that you find in valuable enough to assign disk space (and time) to it. That's a certain degree of validation in my book.

Yes, I remember Win98SE. My memory actually goes back further (DOS). And yes, I remember Computer USA. I remember them as being the worst. And when they were bought out by Tiger Direct, I was surprised that Tiger chose to keep the Compusa name for awhile, as I thought of that brand as a negative. And now Tiger has been reduced to one storefront "cage," in South Miami, which takes me about an hour to get to. I miss having the local branches of the stores, where I could walk in and quickly get what I needed, and hold things in my hand to see what they looked/felt like, as opposed to being reduced to mail order. And yes again, I remember Radio Shack from away back, when it was part of Tandy.

But how about some more input from you on the Magix program I asked about? How are you using it?

Ah, CompUSA. Bought my first CD burner from them back when burning ones own CD was nothing short of miraculous.

It cost a fortune and was a 6:2:2. Burned at 2x (300KB/sec!) but could rip at a whopping 6x.

Magix usually offers 30day trials on these programs....go for it. Also, lots of Youtubes ...go for it.
