I have several sample-based music projects going in ACID Pro 7 on my old Windows 7 computer. Even with all the crashes and bugs, I still love ACID Pro 7. It's what I've used for over a decade and I'm able to use it effortlessly at this point to make some really creative stuff.
I did, however, feel like I was limited by which plug-ins I was able to use. I specifically wanted to get upgrades of Izotope software that was not compatible with ACID 7. ACID 7 and my old computer felt outdated in general... My computer was 8 years old, so I decided to get a better one and also upgrade to ACID Pro 10.
I can't say I was completely shocked, but more disappointed, when I found out that my (25 or so) ACID Pro 7 projects would not open correctly in either ACID Pro 7 or 10 on my new Windows 10 computer. This was really annoying because it meant that I needed to keep my old computer for another year until each project was finished.
MAGIX, please try to make your new versions of ACID better (not worse than previous ones) and more compatible with all versions of Windows and previous ACID Pro Versions.
I have yet to create a new project in ACID Pro 10, but I'm noticing that it's very dark and difficult to see the samples / tracks in general. I'm hoping the basics are the same as ACID 7...
