I would say instead of working on ACID PRO 11, why don't you fix the issues with ACID PRO 10. All I did was leave the house today, I came back, and AP10 just would not open anymore. Why? Who knows! All I did was leave the damn house. It was working this morning. Can I not leave the house without it failing? It gets stuck on child windows. It can't load without an external hard drive I have being plugged in. Why??? I don't know. That EXT HD has NOTHING to do with this program and its startup. The only thing it needs from that EXT HD are loops. The program itself runs straight from my laptop. I've used ACID PRO for years but my god, I see other users are trying to deal with AP10 and seeing failure after failure. They re-install, to no avail. I have dozens of projects running through AP10. Do you mean to say I can't open them anymore because you've gone straight to AP11 without looking back???? I would've used ACID MUSIC STUDIO 10.0 but THAT failed to load VST's that Sony used to have as a DEFAULT. Like Track EQ. Track Compressor. Reverb. Default VSTs that came with the program for years, failed to open. And I use these defaults religiously. That's why I had to get ACID PRO 10. Because it recognised those default VSTs. Now I got a program that doesn't load. So seriously, who cares about ACID PRO 11 if you can't even fix the problems users are having with 10!!!!

@DrTomoculus There is supposed to be an 'update' patch coming to fix all these issues with AP. When it comes is any ones guess, holding ones breath is not recommended. As to your problem with not starting, try going to your 'task manager' in windows (Ctrl, Alt, Delet) and see if it's running in the background? If it is 'end the task' for AP and try to open the program again. Vegas Pro has the same bad habit of running in the background and not starting when you click on the program icon. Best of luck, Cheers

Hi

Try looking look at the Windows Reliability Monitor tool to determine if there is a reason why the crash occurred - select a date you know it happened for more information.

I sent a video to Magix staff member name removed by Moderator to conform with Community rules #10 regarding the problem with downloading Loops and Instruments with the ACID Pro 11 Suite Upgrade. I was going to attach it here but am unable to. I am very disappointed in this upgrade. Most of the Plug-Ins are not only unavailable without paying for them, but also require a monthly fee. I won't be using the Independence application, too complicated for me. And as mentioned, I can't download all of the loops and Instruments.

$100 later and I am no better off than I was with ACID Pro 10.

I hope things get better at MAGIX / ACID and you are able to provide a bit more value for this upgrade. I have been using ACID for years and really like the product overall, and thank you for it, but this upgrade was a disappointment.

Hello! I have been using ACID Music Studio 11 half year now, and today i try'd open it and there comes only popup error "Application Initialization" "Error code: -1". Nothing else and it wont open. I try'd unistall and install, and it kind worked, except it didn't let me use any of my plug-ins or librarys, and when i closed the software it went back to error above. Is there some update that broke whole application or what is going on?

@EEtu-Kuja If you hold CTRL and SHIFT and double click on the program icon to open ACID, you should get a small window that allows you to reset the program settings. Maybe this will help with your problem.

Hello, thanks for trying to help. I try'd it and it still gives only the error popup. I wanted to see will that combination work for another magix software and it did, I tested combination with my Sound Forge Audio Studio and for that it opened the reset window.

@EEtu-Kuja Ok, here are some additional wild guesses:

You could try to set Compatibility Mode of ACID to Windows 8.

Is ACID Music Studio installed under the Program Files folder? Maybe a Windows update changed some security settings and is giving ACID trouble to run properly.

I usually install software on my computer under C:\Users\*WindowsUsername*\ which isn't protected like the Program Files folder.

Yes I tested everything that you suggested, still problem exist. Magix music maker and Sound Forge audio Studio also work, but some reason this ACID studio doesn't. I don't know, maybe my windows is broken or something.

Out of nowhere Acid MS 10 starts giving me errors. After rendering an audio clip into WAV, that clip won't playback. Get error message about error occurred during playback, media not supported...

So I but Acid Pro 11, everything is ok. THE NEXT DAY I get the same errors I had on MS 10. Plus now I can't render an audio clip into a wav file

I have an issue where I cannot change the default project folder. It has as a browse button, but that only takes me to the Desktop Folder. I cannot get it to point to anything else.
Also there is a drop-down that let me choose <project> but there is no explanation as to what that really means in the Help.
If I change all my folder settings to point to <folder>, when I go to save, it still points me to the default folder, again which I cannot change.

I have an odd issue with Acid Pro 11, where if I use Arturia's Tape Mello-Fi plugin, when I render the track to .wav or .mp3 there is a loud audible click or volume pop in the first second or two of the track. You look at it in Audcatity and it appears the waveform is actually broken. My guess is since you can watch all the plugins do work while rendering, maybe Mello-Fi doesn't "Load" all the way before the generation starts, its delayed by a second or so.

Hi everyone,
I made some slides with all the details regarding feedback on bugs, UX improvements and feature requests. Please have a look. Thank you.

Bugs:

Some of my VST3's don't work. VST2 works fine, but VST3 doesn't. They each get the error of "Audio engine inactive. Check your audio device." (Mainly from the Toontrack products, but others don't recognize MIDI coming in.) These work fine when I run them in ACID 9.

My projects crash when I open them via file explorer. If I open ACID first and then open the project file, things load fine. But, if I double-click my project file to open it up, it crashes.

And yeah, ACID crashes a lot. It drives me crazy. I've gone back to using ACID Pro 9 even though it doesn't have the current features.
