Reaper is a great all around DAW, and for the cost you get a lot of functionality for your money.

I downloaded the demo, installed it and run it. It crashed several times trying to scan the VST folder on my machine (a lot of plugins there, I admit). I do not how I managed it, but it looks like OPT-clicking the icon started without scanning for the plugins. When launched Reaper activated my camera for a second without asking permission. Did it take a picture of me? What for?

Well, it is not bad. But for using this in a studio I would not recommend it.
When using large wav files it sometimes locksup.
Also, sometimes it crashes when trying to use a vst plugin. Maybe this is not fault of Reaper but be warned nevertheless.

It still needs a lot of work (most certainly the GUI) before it can compete with Ableton Live or Cubase.

Thx for the Lion fix. Was waiting for this before I upgraded to Lion.

Reaper is the best music production center for me.

I don't know whether this will change with version 4, but for now PPC users can still download version 3.76

This is an absolutely incredible program with a superb business model. The pricing is accessible to everyone and there are absolutely no weird copy-protection limitations so it will work if you have to change computers on short notice or whatever.

REAPER has superb pitch and time adjusting capacity, amazingly flexible MIDI routing and lots, lots more.

Uniquely, it has searching by text for things. Need a plugin? No need to scroll through tons of menus, just start typing the name. Need a preference or action adjustment or whatever, just search for what you want. Plus the user forum is extremely active and people are always around to help. There's a thorough manual too. But the basics are easy to figure out right away. Almost everything is customizable. I didn't like the scrolling behavior at first and I was able to change it to my preference.

They update all the time, and buying a license gives you free updates for the current and the next major version numbers. They don't change versions unwarranted either. They've had dozens of substantial updates since version 3 was released.

The flow is sensible but professional. The only thing this lacks is tons of pre-included loops, but if you want to be recording your own music you don't necessarily want that junk anyway.

While Logic, Digital Performer, Ableton Live, Protools etc. all have great features, REAPER competes fully alongside those with many superior elements and a much more fair business model worthy of support. Many professional studios have actually abandoned those other programs in favor of REAPER.
