Subject:Using Acid with Emu's Patchmix DSP

Hi, I have an emu 1820m soundcard & I understand that I can use the Patchmix DSP effects on a final mix prior to rendering (I think)... Actually the more I think about it, I really don't know how to take advantage of my soundcards onboard processing with Acid. Can I assign individual tracks to different effects within it freeing up much needed CPU resources? How is the Compressor - Is it better than Acid's? I have Acid Pro 5 by the way- It runs slower than 4....Anyone noticed this?

is Acid 5 running slower? If it is the launch of the program that is too long then try to disable the media manager. I use the e-mu 1212m as soundcard and I must admit that I never used the effects other than for monitoring (reverba on singing ´n stuff). I look foreward to see what other users have to say about that.

If the EMU exposes its effects as VST (or DX) plugins, then you can use them in ACID.

From the docs, it appears you have to set up "EMU VST E-Wire" to do this.

Looks complicated, but you should refer to your EMU documenation to determine how to accomplish this.

I use an EMU 1820M, it comes with a VST plug-in that exposes all fo the internal FX as a "FX Rack".

Honestly, they don't sound that great. I only use the 1820M FX for things adding some 'verb to a headphone mix when tracking Vox, things like that.

Good luck!
