I own Acid Pro 7, and I purchased this product on a Black Friday deal.
I also own Acid Music 7. This product (Acid Music Studio 8) has greatly improved stabilitywith VST pluggins, and has even tighter and easier to use Audio Editing than Acid Music 7.I can edit loops so much faster and exact with Acid Music 8 than in version 7 pro or music.I love using this with my notebook computer and an ASIO compliant sound device (Cakewalk UA-1G).
The reviewer that complained that Acid Music 8 is only 16bit 44k and does not have direct sound (The ability to monitor what you are recording in real time).
Has no grounds for a complaint in my opinion and should please read up on Sony's product line.Acid Music 8 does support direct sound with an ASIO compliant sound device.If you want 24bit/96k, you need to purchase the Acid Pro version.
Acid Music 8 comes with a VST (REAL TIME) guitar amp simulator "Studio Devil British Valve Custom (BVC) software" and a VST piano "Piano TruePianos Amber Lite piano". It also has "Studio-quality audio effects" non real time VST, but you can purchase 3rd party VST FX if needed. If you do not have an ASIO adaptor, you can use a free download "ASIO4ALL" for direct sound, but I have never liked the product myself. Just buy a good ASIO sound adaptor and be done with it. I use SONAR XL, BAND IN A BOX, SOUND FORGE PRO, ACID PRO etc. All these products have their own charms and purposes. Acid Music Studio 8 is no exception. You just need to read the manual, visit the support Forums and invest in compatible hardware.
For the price it is a very nice DAW & LOOPER. I use it to record Guitar & Vocals while mobile or to loop tracks and export them to my Roland SP404-SX or my SPD-S.

I found this at a very low price on a Black Friday sale, so I threw caution to the wind and bought it. Two crucial things that the buyer needs to be aware of : sampling is limited to 16bit (where 24 bit audio is preferable to it vastly) AND , more importantly, there is no live input monitoring. This is a very critical feature, if you want to record from any amplified instrument - for instance, you can't play on an electric guitar and actually HEAR what you're playing (unless you hook up a splitter beforehand); this is a bigger problem if you're recording using audio plugins, as you have no idea what their effect is until you play it back.

IT TOOK ME AWHILE TO GET A GRIP ON WHAT I COULD DO WITH THE PROGRAM ON MY OLD "PC". ITS RUNNING ON WINDOWS XP AND HAS A HIGH-END (CREATIVE SOUND) CARD SYSTEM. AFTER "BRAINSTORMING" THE PROGRAM FOR 3+ DAYS, I STARTED GETTING SOME FAIRLY GOOD RESULTS. ITS A LITTLE GLITCHY WITH "MIDI FILES" AND THE RECORDING OF THEM. BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FOR $18 . I HAD TO BURN THE CD'S ON THE SLOWEST SPEED OR IT WOULD CRASH AND I'D END UP WITH ANOTHER DRINK COASTER FOR MY COFFEE TABLE. LOL........

A great product but not what I needed. I had acid pro 4 and thought I getting a deal. If you really make music get Acid Pro 7, it has every thing you need. This version would not allow me to add all my VST plug-ins, which really sucks, I knew it was cheap. Guess I got to fork over $299 for the real deal. You get what you pay for. For a beginner this is great to start with. That's why I gave it 4 stars.

ACID Music Studio 8.0 is a great DAW Digital Audio Workstation. The cut and paste loop system is great. You can build a song in minutes right out of the box with out any experience. However, the rest of the function in this program need some education to use. Some great tutorials are on the internet however, unless your willing to spend time learning how to use this software you might want to consider something less complicated. My purchase came with a free down load of Sony special loops. You can pick from a wide variety of music styles. I picked Latin Rock. I have compared other DAW's available and for the money ACID Music Studio 8.0 is the best deal out there. Just remember it is a real DAW and not a watered down version. So only the serious students of Audio should apply.

I know there is a newer version out but this one is perfect for my needs. I started using version 7 and have mixed up alot of personal tracks, mostly ambient sounds. It's easy to use and fairly intuitive, at least for the most-used functions. Still great software in 2013/2014.

I purchased this older version as I just want to make some background music for short videos and I'm not a pro musician. There was a bit of a learning curve but there are videos provided to help learn which I appreciate and there were also some videos at YouTube. It does the job and since I purchased an older version I got it at a great price so I'm pleased with Sony Acid Music Studio.
