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...)
