Acid Pro 9 from Magix

Has anyone tried Acid Pro 9 since Magix has taken it over? I always liked the simplicity of Acid and made some great tracks with it. I know Apathy still uses it. It looks like they have included some pretty nice plugins with it now.

Anyone have any experience since Magix release it? Any good?

Lots of problems with Acid Pro 9 being reported. Take a look at the forum:

I've been looking to update from version 7, but won't take the chance until I see more positive reports!

After years (over a decade) with Sound Forge on both PC & Mac, I finally jumped ship d/t total lack of support from Magix.

They have be slow to update.
They wanted a ridiculous 'upgrade' fee for no significant application changes.
Their forum is dead compared to the old Sony forum.
Their website is unhelpful (at best) in most situations.

I would avoid anything from them where possible. Their origins in cheap music/photo/NLE software are showing through the seams of their fancy 'new clothes' (i.e. the former Sonic Foundry/Sony code base they purchased). My opinion is that the emperor has no new (Magix) clothes.

I had a number of Sound Forge products. ACID, Sound Forge, a number of versions of Vegas (which became Sony Movie Studio at some point). I thought Sony did a pretty reasonable job as steward of the SF franchise.

THAT I would not say about the Corel-like, bottom-feeding software clearing house Magix.

I DID buy one update from them. It did NOT work. I could NOT get my money back. I had to abandon upgrading a title I'd used for a decade or more.

I won't buy from them. Period.
