I discovered Reaper recently and this unexpensive little piece of software does amaze me: it is so light! What do you guys think about it? Does it have a place at the heart of a professional composer’s studio or are there too many limitations vs. other DAWs?
Antares Autotune doesn’t work correctly in Reaper, if that’s your thing..
I switched to Reaper a few years back when I got a new computer. I had been on Pro Tools 7, but I didn’t want to pay to upgrade to 10 so I decided to give Reaper a try. I’ve been really happy with it; it doesn’t do editing as well as PT, but its way better with midi. Its also the most customizable DAW I’ve ever used.
Reaper is one of the best DAWs out there. The thing that makes it really special is how lean it is and how fast it runs. Never had a crash in Reaper. I usually run ableton Live so I can take advantage of the session view, but Reaper is my go to for strictly linear recording, and acts as my backup DAW.
