Just wondering, I've added to task to retrieve acoustids to my autocorrect routine, but is it really needed for anything? Does having the ID help matching w/ musicbrainz or discogs?

I only question because it takes forever to complete on my songs and with 8.0 being lighting fast now, I don't like waiting

Thanks!

Acoustids are needed for MusicBrainz matches, but they are created as needed as within the Correct Metadata from MusicBrainz task so no you don't need the use the separate Retrieve Acoustids task first.

Glad to see you are experiencing the performance improvements.

Also worth noting that acoustids only have to created once for a song
