Lots of options - if only it would recognise USB!
on 25 March 2011
This looks a very good piece of software for the price. It isn't too difficult to understand; it's quite intuitive, even though I hadn't used anything like it before - editing, effects, all great. What it won't do is recognise any of the input ports on my PC! I have a USB guitar jack, and a USB keyboard that audacity can find straight away (so it's obviously not a problem with the ports themselves), but Acid can't. I can't configure anything to input as a midi controller - it doesn't give me an option to search; and doesn't show them in the 'preferences' set up. So I now have the rather silly position of having to record stuf in audacity, save it, then copy it into Acid to work on it. There must be a way round this! But i't not obvious. Hence the three star review. I'm sure I'll be very happy with it once I can get it to work!
