Updated on Jun 28 2022

Version 6.26.0 e00fb4c/:

REAPER for macOS 10.5-10.14

  • add Media Explorer options to set a MIDI note or channel to assign when inserting media into sampler, incrementing if inserting on new track
  • add Media Explorer option to assign MIDI note based on detected pitch when inserting media into sampler
  • when inserting into sampler and detecting pitch, assign sampler pitch start rather than note start (so the sample can be played at different pitches, correctly tuned)
  • add pitch detection
  • display note names for pitch offset
  • if sample detected pitch is out of range of pitch start parameter, add octaves to note start parameter as needed
  • support sorting sample list by detected pitch
  • support typing in sample pitch
  • when inserting media from media explorer into an existing sampler instance, obey preferences to apply volume/pitch adjustment
  • fix exporting type 1 MIDI that has both embedded cues and key signature changes
  • fix key signature export
  • always display one momentary, one short-term, and one integrated render statistic in render dialog
  • fully cancel render queue when user clicks "cancel all"
  • make clearer in preferences that either LUFS or RMS, both not both, will be calculated/displayed for a given period (momentary, short-term, or integrated)
  • fix incomplete loading of certain complex shapes
  • prevent resizing regions into entirely negative space
  • when inserting a new edit, select the edit by default
  • fix some WMF decoding issues that were un-fixed by a different WMF decoding fix in v6.60
  • hopefully improve WMF compatibility further
  • fix performance/stability issues when using AVFoundation decoding on a track that does not use media buffering
  • fix potential crash when running action to normalize selected items with no items selected
  • various drawing integer overflow fixes with non-sensical values
  • fix pencil-drawing take envelopes on stretched media items in certain situations
  • ensure FX parameter modulation/linking are preserved after undo after loading FX chains
  • include LV2i in Instruments list
  • fix loudness meter readout tooltip label in mixer
  • add a hidden accessible text field for pitch detection output
  • fix Track/TakeFX_AddByName() matching existing instances when using FX-type prefix
  • fix pre-fx/pre-fader output recording when live FX multiprocessing is disabled
  • hit test vol/pan/width labels last even when they are above other controls
  • do not process deferred undo points if in the middle of a mouse edit
  • improve initial size behavior with plug-ins that adjust size when UI opens (Kee Bass)
  • improve appearance of checked bitmap menu items (fades, note head shapes, etc)

Trying to run Reaper on Mac Monterey. I downloaded a paid non-commercial version of Reaper. I'm trying to get some sort of voice signal out of my Samson G-Track Pro recorded onto a Reaper track. No luck so far. I've watched many of the on-line tutorials. In all of them, I am supposed to go to Preferences/Options and there is SUPPOSED to be a window that appears where I choose Audio Device Settings, where I choose Asio, WavOut, Direct Sound, etc. However this window with these choices NEVER appears for me to chose. So does this mean I need to download a bunch of drivers first? And why wouldn't they already be in the Reaper program? The only thing that appears in Audio Device settings is the name of my Samson microphone. I'm creating a track and arming the record button, but I see NO levels (voice) coming through either before or during recording. Mic is not on mute nor is the channel. Any thoughts out there? Thanks.

Reaper still is a wonderful and very good piece of software. Compared with other DAWs it is one of the best for me: fast, small and with many great functions. Most plugins work great with reaper and the developers always make updates if necessary. Thank you! Why must I always click an ok-button here in Macupdate? Every time I start with FireFox or reboot my Mac.

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...)
