No, your post is not "pointless". I have been an ACID user since ACID 1.0a, and I have been a loyal Sonic Foundry customer ever since. Now this software is not geared for the "Live" performer, but rather the ReMix Artist, or DJ, or Music Producer. It's really good, if you are setting up Dance, or Dj Friendly remixes. I, being a Dj Remix Artist, just love the Beat Mapper interface, which allows me to Beat Map an Accapella, then underlay it with my own beats ( I use Fruity Loops 3 Pro to create original Beat Loops).
Now, say you are a "Live" looper, maybe yoy want to "Clean up" a taped performance. Well stick that Puppy in Acid, use the Chopper, the resequence the whole thing on the fly ! Viola, the next P-Diddy is born (without the Gun drama, but with Jenifer Lopez, oh I digress).
