BTW, i take acid for a innovation in the sense it allows to compose music
straight from audio.
Ardour is more a clone of Samplitude/Protools but it has already the
interessant feature that allow to snap the "clips" to a beat or measure.
In my mind a step toward the composition.
I have never used acid (well may be one time years ago) and i have been on
the sonicfoundry site to see some screenshots.
But well, it is not easy to understand much what acid can do that makes it so
Could someone say what are the obvious features of this paradigm, what make
it to be more than a samplitude like tool ?
May be some of them can be implemented in a linux DAW ?
