Reaper is a digital audio workstation: a complete multitrack audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing, and mastering environment. Reaper is designed to let you work quickly and creatively, without imposing any artificial limits on what you can do. It includes professional plugins, advanced customization, and compatibility with almost any hardware. It supports both VST and AU plugins.

Trial download is unrestricted and has no time limit. Discounted license for personal or educational use is $60. The commercial license is $225 for those using Reaper commercially and making over $20,000 in revenue per year.

I really enjoy using the new version 6 of reaper. It is very stable, fast and has many features. By thr way it is now version 6.0.3, not 6.30.0!

It's worth mentioning that Reaper is a $60 program. The $225 price is for a commercial license that very few people require. The programs are identical - just the license is different.

I still haven't tried Reaper but it's an acclaimed rival of Pro Tools for a fraction of its price! I've read good reviews about it and for personal use ($60!), I'll certainly consider it when I have to upgrade my OS (instead of the 600 bucks for PT...)
