Reaper DAW

I use Cakewalk Sonar 6, Studio Edition (though edition 7 is the current one), but I may take a look at this product: Reaper is getting lots of rave reviews in the Usenet groups and home studio recording crowd.

They've just released a new version and here are some of the features at a cost of $50 USD for non-commercial, personal use (though it's shareware, so you can try it out first for as long as you like before deciding to buy):

  • Portable - supports running from USB keys or other removable media

  • 64 bit audio engine

  • Excellent low-latency performance

  • Stunning multiprocessor performance

  • Direct multi-track recording to many formats including WAV/BWF/W64, AIFF, WavPack, FLAC, OGG, and MIDI.

  • Extremely flexible routing

  • Fast, tool-less editing

  • Supports a wide range of hardware (nearly any audio interface, outboard hardware, many control surfaces)

  • Support for VST, VSTi, DX, DXi effects

  • ReaPlugs: high quality 64 bit effect suite

  • Tightly coded - installer is just over 3MB

Anything that will help you create the music! May the Muse be with you... and ci vedimes...

I've heard about Reaper several times , but have never tried it because I dove into ProTools.

Thanks for your blog! Some good insights and information.

Hey, thanks very much Steve... I enjoy your blog as well (I guess I should have asked in advance if it was okay to link to it...)

I figure if it's on the internet, people shouldn't have a problem with someone else linking to it.

Link away!!
