What happens exactly?

Sound Forge is an audio editor, not a DAW. Closest thing to ACID is Vegas (which is more for video but audio can be produced in it too...though it isn't exactly musician-friendly).

Depends on what you want to do. As a recorder of primarily acoustic performers, i find Vegas to be much more "musician friendly" than ACID. I can't imagine using ACID for the recording sessions i do. It's just so much easier in Vegas.

Vegas is for audio at least as much as it is for Video. It may not have the midi editing/composing and tempo/key-based looping abilities of ACID, but probably the majority of musicians have no need for these things.

You must work with musicians who are music-theory-challenged then. :D

I'm obsessed with rhythm and beat, I guess. If one likes ad libitum, knock yourself out. xD

No, most of the musicians i work with are very knowledgeable and competent and precise. What they want from me is to create an as perfect as possible recording of their performance. So, i lay down tracks while they perform.

I usually roll tape too!

Rewire has no functionality in SoundForge, or Vegas.

Rewire should work with Reason and Acid, AFAIK ....
