That and VST 3 support for the new Drumcore Engine is al I need to see. I simply prefer the layout and functionality to other packages and wish Magix will continue this product line instead of attempting to incorporate features into other existing products.
Love AP7. Only thing its missing is an audio quantise/transient detection function...similar to that of ProTools 'Elastic Audio' or Studio One's 'Audio Bend'. Pleeeeease make this a new feature of AP8.
I think AP7 already has transient detection and audio quantization.. check the clip property window on an audio loop, choose timestretch mode. You have to do this for every audio clip, as fas as I understand it, so it might not be ideal to audio-quantize a multi-track drum recording, but at least it is possible.
