Soundpools vs Acid Loops

Hi - I'm a little confused by Magix online store(s). I'm looking for some soundpools and have landed at both Catooh and Producer Planet. Catooh seems to have soundpools, but I found a product on Producer Planet that I'm interested in, but it is labeled as "Acid Loops". Is this compatible with Music Maker? Any special issues in using Acid Loops with MM? Or do I need to buy soundpools from Catooh?

Thanks for any help!

I would not buy soundpools from catooh since you have to backup the files on your own.
On Producerplanet you can also download the files in both formats (wav and ogg) On catooh you have to decide which format you want to buy.
You can also download purchased soundpools from producerplanet (not acided loops) directly from the music maker in-app-store.

On Producerplanet you find normal soundpools and soundpools for acid pro.
I don't know if acid pro also works correct in the music maker.
I would only buy normal soundpools which are for the music maker / Samplitude

Acid Loops do work with MM, but the instruments may not show up correctly or the loops may not be under the correct instrument. You can change these if you know how. I have Acid Pro 7 and I used the Add Soundpools in MM to also point to the Acid loops.

However, if you don't have Acid, I wouldn't recommend buying any acidized loops.
