Subject: Got email today regarding Acid from MAGIX!!

Today I got an email from MAGIX regarding Acid Pro!

They gave me a survey asking what features I would like to have in the new Acid.
My primary need (like many of you) is 64 bit!! So that I can use the current VST plugins which I really can't use in AP7 due to the memory limit of 32 bit

Please check your email and also fill in the survey and tell them know you need 64 bit too.

Especially question number 8:
"8. Which functions are missing in ACID that you most strongly think should be included?"

My answer: "Please make Acid Pro 64 bit so that I can use the current VST instruments"

Check your email, mine arrived today. Let them know you are interested in Acid.

The more answers they get the better!

I can paste the survey here, but I a am not sure if that's user connected or a general one, I did have to fill in my email at the end. It's hosted on http://www.surveygizmo.com/

If any MAGIX member is here please let me know If I can paste the survey link here.

I've checked my spam folder and couldn't find any recent emails from Magix; I do get emails from time to time from them though.

You sure it was ACID Pro and not just ACID Music Studio? Also, Peter Haller confirmed he didn't go to Magix, so now my interest is tenfold; who's doing the developing?

I'm a long time Acid Music Studio user. I haven't received any recent emails regarding an upgrade for Music Studio. Nothing in my SPAM folder.

I got one too (in my "Clutter" - thank you Microsoft)..

The survey seems to be about where we'd like Acid to go and there's also an offer of 50% off Music Maker Premium (Magix top "consumer" product).

This suggests to me they are undecided about whether to develop Acid Pro or whether simply to persuade people to cross-grade to Samplitude.

If they'd already decided to abandon Acid for Samplitude, they'd surely be offering a 50% discount on Samplitude rather than MMP.

My guess is they'll take a look at the survey and decide whether what people want from Acid is different enough from what Samplitude already provides.

Assuming it isn't they can simply state that "In the survey, respondents said they wanted xxx,.Gues what! Samplitude already has that!".

No a complaint at all. Good business sense. f Sampltude can provide what Acid pro users already have and what they might want, why develop two parallel products.

Presumably the same will work the other way with Vegas/Movie Edit Pro.

In the meantime I might just take up the MMP Offer.
