I've been using it for like 2 years now. I love it. Im able to get some pretty good mixes with it.. Check out my jams in my profile, all done with acid pro 6. It's very easy to learn and very easy to use.

I have used Acid through it's versions for around 8 years now and love it. There was a very similar thread to this recently.

Acid has everything you need for a recording package plus all the loop support not offered by some others.

Project 5 from Cakewalk is an Acid type app, I have always preferred Cakewalk apps in terms of usability over most any other manufacturer...but usability is subjective.

Yep, while I am with dB on the Project 5 version 2 thing it really is in the end how one is going to use the app and what they want in features.

Acid has some killer looping facilities, and a pretty straight forward interface. I don't personally care for some of the inner workings and the need for opening sub windows for somethings.

Project 5 on the other hand has the ability to do gapless editing which Acid does not. In other words I can work without having to stop the playback to drop in or edit my clips. I can do so much more on the fly and never stop it from playing. All this without any drop outs or glitches. Acid and Ableton don't even compare for this. As well Project 5 has a huge partition called the groove pain which can be used in a bunch of different ways.

Also, I have tried Acid, Ableton and Project 5 in a live DJ type setting. Nothing can come close to P5 for that. If I need to drop in a different synth on the fly I can do so.

As well the loop editing and creation for me in P5 is just so much more straight forward. One click and I'm opening the synth choices and they are assigned straight away. No having to go edit my channel settings or the like.

One thing I did find was Acid seemed to choke up on some of my heavier VST pluggins when running multiple instances of them.
