Dude Acid Pro is not 60 bucks at best buy, Sony actually makes several versions of the product and the one I think you are refering to is Acid Music.
And I didn't know that audio sequencers have "converters" ??
Are you maybe refering to the mix engine algorithm?..

Acid Pro 6 isn't as expensive as many sequencers, but who wants to pay more for their sequencer? And yes Acid supports 24bit/192k and 5.1 surround.
I eventually gave it up for Logic when I moved to my Intel Mac, but its a much more powerful tool than people give it credit. I've noticed a tiny difference in audio quality since I made the switch but its pretty negligable. Your A/D D/A makes a much bigger difference. However I haven't been able to use any of the new sequencers featuring 64 bit mixing engines, so maybe that will change my tune.
