Acoustica looks great but I don't see anything about automation in the description or feature list, so I guess not. Would be really hand for sound design purposes!

Thanks! I agree. Automation will not be available when released, but it's one of the first features that we plan to add after release and will probably be in v7.1.

Great! Looking forward to try it.
Hope it'll have as fast a workflow as you mention.
Can you set your own shortcuts to open a specific effect?

For the internal effects, yes (although currently not ready, but it will be there in the final release)... Plug-ins are a bit trickier since they are dynamic, but I can add that to our feature request list of you wish.

Oh yes, I consider that to be essential. With my current Audio Editor I have set all my favorite plugins to open with the press of the Num keys and other shortcuts and they open instantly, I adjust the settings, and hit enter and the file is processed like that. If I open a wrong plugin I can close it on Esc key. That way I can work very fast with less effort and process a lot of audio files in one session. Also if I need to undo something and close the plugin it still keeps the previous setting, which again saves a lot of time. However there are certain things, like the ones I mention here that this program lacks so I'm still looking for better options.

Don't know if you already have it but I'd really love to have a tempo grid for making loops and adjusting correct loop length, pretty much like it is in Ableton Live. Live just doesn't work at all as a fast Audio Editor.
And having global tempo would be great too for effects that use synced modulation.

Acoustica 6 already has snapping to beats (or fractions thereof) and we'll get that into version 7 prior to the final release... :)

Old thread, I know, but I am on the fence seriously considering Acoustica 7 and I have a couple of questions:

Has plugin automation been implemented?

Also, is there a simple command to make a stereo file a mono one in the edit window?

Thanks!

Thanks for the interest! Plug-in automation hasn't been implemented, but it's on the roadmap for version 7 so it will be free for 7.x customers. You can use Tools > Convert Sample Format... to convert a stereo file to mono.
