    As discussed in class, listen to this song while you visualize an ACID XPress screen in your mind. Imagine listening to a song you're working on as you watch the cursor move across the screen. Imagine the different loops in your song starting to play at different times. Now, count how many different "loops" you hear in this song. Imagine how this song might look in ACID. How many loops do you hear? (Used several years ago in this commercial)
