Yet again another amazing in depth tutorial by Allan, he really explains in a easy to understand way on the basics and the technical side of creating pro sounding acids I used this to make acid lines in my uplifting trance track and it was easy to get to fit in perfectly, the presets that come with this are worth the purchase alone! Highly recommend
- Very well explained. Completely worth the purchase. Great video
- The only thing I would have liked better would be to see some acid sound synthesis from the ground up
