People, im having timing problem with my acid pro.. like, first i record the guitar and then when i record the vocals on it , they dont get in sync! the second layer is slightly ahead in timing with the previous layer though when recording the second layer, i record with perfect timings! at first it used to be perfect but then i formatted my pc due to some virus, and then when i re0installed acid, since then im having this problem..ive tried formatting my pc again n again n installing the software many times but this problem is there..i changed my sound card too but the problems remains unresolved..please help me as i need to record songs..
I had that problem. I fixed it by adjusting my Sample Rate and Bit Depth in Control Panel (Sound) to match the Sony Acid Program. When in Acid, hit the record button and a window opens up. At the bottom of that window you will see 'Attributes' and next to it you'll most likely see 44,100 Hz, 16 Bit. Your computer should be set at these values to record in sync.
Your solution is to delay or speed up the sound that your running thru to your computer. The reason why they put user recording latency under the options then preferences then audio settings is not because this never happens or isn't know about. If your sound is too late in the track you have to re-record the track with a higher number try about 125-160. A hint is to play some notes to the beat, check to see that you are in time, then record what you are planning to record.

You can copy. You cannot just dump the file data. Unless you have an audio interface with multiple inputs, you can only copy 2 tracks at a time. Also, to sync the timing you'll need a midi port on the computer. Then you make the computer the "master" and the Fostex a "slave" device.
You need to adjust the buffer in acids settings. If you set the buffer too low, everything will be in time, but you will get pops and clicks in the audio. Try and find the happy medium for your system. Also be sure there are no other programs such as a virus scanner enabled or running while recording.
Depending on your sound card, there could be another solution if adjusting the buffer does not work for you.
You will then need to find a different ASIO driver that is compatible with your sound card. If you have a soundblaster, there are 3rd party ASIO drivers that you can install, and that should fix the issue.
Make sure everything is routed correctly in Windows. Double click the speaker icon on your taskbar, go into options, click preferences. You will have the option to view playback or recording settings and levels. Select recording and click OK. This will allow you to select which inputs are active for recording.
If it still doesn't work, make sure you have Acid configured to your sound card. I am not specifically familiar with Acid, but all audio programs need to be configured specifically to the system that they're running on.
This is the Sony site choose Acid 5 and they have volumes of info.
Hope that helps.
Are you plugging the instrument directly into the computer? If so you only have mono jacks from your bass, guitar so on and so forth! So in channel in only one to record! Try using a stereo microphone and record pointing at the amp. That way you will get stereo through your device. If that is not the problem make sure that the settings on the Prosonus is set to output stereo. And for most check all your plugs to make sure they are stereo inputs and outputs.
