    Simple installation

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    i7 Asus mainboard - intel - 8 gigas - 120 SSD - HD 1gigas -? no sound card ext. installed at the moment (am a faignasse). Performance? MAX! The software? Superb.

    The Reaper software is very stable. We feel a power down there that I have not felt in other DAW.

    So ... it is very promising and I look forward to spending all my plugs in and prepare this app to work.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Using 3 hours. (Cubase SX3 before). The engine is a monster quality. It's just amazing to have at your disposal with a soft coding of such quality. The least? I can not find for the moment all the things that make you go very fast with SX3 or more but I think it should also work and prepare its own settings and buttons since Reaper allows so much.

    For my part and after installation ... I have not even installed my sound card and MIDI. Nothing. After half an hour I had already composed a piece measures 32 "Dance" with more synth and drums. This is just a killer. Try to do this right after the installation of a Cu .... and we'll talk!

    For me it is ok. I'm tired of spending all the time in the box then I will support this team and pay my product at the end of the month.

    My son started playing music. I installed Reaper on his bike which is initially somewhat limited to music. I installed asio on his computer, a keyboard and Reaper + three plugin. After showing her some how to cope ... he had already made some cool drum tracks after spending some time on it. I said that he is not a musician at all. So if you want ...

    Unbeatable value for money for the moment. In my opinion.

    Good music guys .... and girls .. forgiveness.

    system (64bit version) extremely simple and fast, very lightweight executable file.
    The general setup is easy if you start from zero, we must remain simple and y'arriver not be compared to other DAW like CUBASE, which pollutes our gestures base.Simple habit.
    Incompatible with my 32bit VSTi Arturia ProphetVS to 1.1 ... if everything works with all my vsti (PLAY 64bit, 64bit Independence, bestservice, etc ...)
    The manual is clear but in English and requires a few hours of reading, it is huge.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    my computer is simple CPU power (Core i3) and seems insufficient when I open 100 audio / midi, the fault was my cpu that blocks the side of real-time sequencer.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    my computer is simple CPU power (Core i3) and seems insufficient when I open 100 audio / midi, the fault was my cpu that blocks the side of real-time sequencer.
    So in a normal session like 20 tracks (10 vsti for example) the Reaper is doing fine on my PC stuff.
    With 12GB of RAM I can load banks eastwest complete. without concern for asio.
    (FireWire400 external sound card presonus)

    configuration is stable but suffers from some bug (rare. ..)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use a 100% to turn the page with cubase which is no longer able to match it on all points.
    I almost buy cubase 6.5 artist, to be disappointed (for the demo) by the lack of function offered as export multitrack audio impossible to do without buying the Premium version has more than 500 €
    10fois Reaper is cheaper and does not care. QED!
    Yet I was a fan of CUBASE since 15years ... and I realized that the so-called "tenor" do not care about their customers and take them for wallet on foot.
    Reaper makes everything (breath control via micro) controlling parameters of a track from another track, as the side chain but more powerful, huge! timestretching same with the "varied audio" everything is, as a function of Melodyne, everything!
    partoche except the editor.
    The editor provides features twelve o'clock handy but I prefer that of cubas

    REAPER will remain my choice for at least 10 years ... the time that other DAW take it seriously and resume his duties routing ultra-powerful.

    A little Drout for a novice. Everything is in English, no translation or manual other than the language of Shakespeare, but all this is quickly forgotten when we know that this is one of the best sequencers on the market bundled with a lot effects, compatible with almost all sound cards, ASIO / WDM / KernelStreaming / DirectX, VST and DX plug-compatible, MIDI management, unlimited number of tracks.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The app is running on a Core2Duo E6300 with 1024MB of RAM at home, a sound card entry Phonic Firefly 302. No problem on this config, the app is very fast compared to a plant-based gas such as C *, I have latency of around 6ms which for a firewire card is reasonable.

    REAPER supports 2000/XP/Vista, even Linux with Wine and Jackaudio rotated correctly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am Reaper since version 1.6, and each new version was right new features, fixes and new plugins. It is updated almost every three days, The reactivation of being Cockos copy! We're going on the forum, it lists a bug, and a few days later a new version comes out.
    Cot price: 50! Find a soft style for this award. Moreover, even if it is a shareware, you can use it without paying as much as you want. Cockos a trusted user to purchase a license if the software suits her, in short, it's 100% transparent.

    - Also qu'energyXT stable, as much or more than Cubase LE home.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I use it for 1-2 months

    - I love the audio and midi routing that allows to do what we want with our tracks. I like the fact that it is fully skinnable. Cockos plugins that come with are great and numerous, making a Reaper DAW self-sufficient, and directly usable.
    And the crazy thing is the updates every week (and even several times a week!) J'apprcie a lot TimeStretching the ultra simple.

    - I started with computer music Quartz Audio Master, then crack in Sonar (and yes ...), then I energyXT Discoveries (I always use because most East Live), when o I realized that dveloppeurs were crazy work on software and plugins VERY HIGH quality all this with an ethic that suited me. So after testing Cubase LE, which ergonomics did not suit me at all, I bought and test Reaper which I fully sduit.

    - The report QualitPrix is ​​my opinion the best among all the sequencers march.Quand seen the price of Cubase, Sonar, etc ... it's foutage of mouth!

    - I would do this choice of course. Now my config + Reaper + energyXT a bunch of plugins Freewares = 80 euros! And there it all, and very good quality.

    I highly recommend this solution to cutting beginners, but also to express more, which could be above!

    Some instabilities starting / leaving projects using Reason via ReWire.

    Not having a configuration that uses heavy-handed I can not judge its performance.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Everything is configurable. All. Provided the effects are extremely powerful to the point where they can become difficult to use, and suddenly you can discover some of their options by going to dig into the manuals, to realize they are even more powerful than the initial notice did not think.

    The value for money is excellent, with a special license to use an amateur reduced price: $ 50, and a license "if you earn money with your music" was $ 225.

    After trying to order a sluggish Live and finds that it was unfortunate the sound reproduction, fast Cubase and Sonar (no grip on the interfaces), I finally found a program that is both easy to use, efficient and having a clean record.

    Acid Pro 5 and 6 (DIFFERENT but a little-even when such!)

    For a non-commercial use, the license is $ 50 ($ 225 retail) !!!!!! Cest almost given when compared to other squenceurs the march. Level of functionality is amazing considering the price. The report is qualitprix I havent afraid to say, the best of squenceurs gnralistes.
    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    Jai put a lot of time designing my hardware-software configuration with constraints financires and know-how. Everything you invest in what sense is our answer to the needs, and should allow concrtiser the ides that a lon as musicians. Instruments (such as virtual ral) are one thing, and all the software is another. Culturally, jai hard rock 350 in a program that only serves matrialiser lon plays what and who is phmre. The few freeware available are not all the height, Reaper is a good compromise, the price is democratic and allows dACHETER for real, not on emule or other PtoP of Systm. So yes, Reaper is the software that most closely matches my needs. It shall not be perfect, as any such software dailleurs but REPRESENTATIVES lquilibre between functionality, usability and price.

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Installation is very simple, the updates are numerous, but there is also no problem, everything is done almost automatically. No dongle to bite me-knot, but a simple license number that shows we are trusted.
    It should be noted some inconsistencies with certain VSTi, it is better to test your configuration with the trial version before buying.
    Like any software, the manual is in English. If like me you are angry with the language of Shakespeare, it can be annoying.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I use reaper on a laptop brand new and not on my PC config with a more muscular, the app is very stable. bugger to do, you gotta go hard.
    If you have a control surface is a bit annoying to set up. I have a xboard and I still can not use the knobs, but the process exists and is found on AF in excellent tutorials.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use Reaper for two months in a serious manner. It takes a little time to get started when we went through the clutches of Steinberg, but once the keyboard shortcuts reparameterized, quickly found his bearings.
    So after the period of trial and error, we realize slowly that it is largely among the best. It is intuitive, simple, fully skinable, the audio engine is nickel, the potential enormous. In other words, value for money is simply amazing (non-commercial license around 50 euros).
    Small flats?
    - No French version, and the lack of resources in our language (no community of French-speaking users either, but I used the forums to AF and it helped me overcome many difficulties initially).
    - The lack of audio editing, but I Reaper coupled with audacity (I just double click on the audio file in reaper audacity to start and do the job of cleaning my catch of his).
    So nothing too serious.
    Otherwise, this software is a nugget.
    When I think that some of my friends are still using versions cubase Aquatic ...
    It's also really important to support the creators of software such as Cockos, people who do their utmost to get us out of the software sensational by remaining at reasonable rates.

    Simple Installation and lightweight (less than 5 MB for PC - less than 8 MB for Mac!).
    Can also be installed and used independently from a USB key (take your USB stick with your top Reaper to go to another studio mix (no need to install additional).

    Reaper is very customizable, you can use it 100% with the default settings but it is worth taking the time to configure it at your convenience.
    The manual is very clear and also practical cases.
    The forum is an infinite well of resources and users very reactive.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Mac Pro 4x2.66 (it's been that power is not really a problem ;-) / 4GB RAM / Interfaces MOTU HD192 x2.

    Reaper 2.53 (current version at the time of writing this opinion) is stable at 95% on my bike. Crash from time to time (every 20 hours of use maybe) when I ask him too much at once.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3-4 months after intensive research and testing on other platforms: Samplitude, Cubase SX, ProTools HD, Pro Tools LE, Digital Performer, Ableton Live, Pyramix, etc..

    I produce, record and mix albums distributed in the market for music and I tried the software tool that sounds best while refusing to sell my soul to Digidesign.

    In Digital Performer (the enemy of ProTools cousin), I seem to have enough space when I mix, it's as if I had to cram a big band on stage in club ... I have more tracks, more shrivels my sound is like DP could not handle 60 tracks of audio simultaneously.
    In ProTools, the sound is more punchy and defined as DP but I quickly feel mixer "head on the ceiling", that is to say, feeling a limit in the headroom (headroom). Besides I systems with outdated maps or close to being (excluding investment).
    I tried Pyramix, known for its transparent sound, and that its user interface and features that I find ill-suited to the needs of the production of contemporary music.
    I also tested Samplitude, which I really liked the sound. Reaper sounds in any case as well ...
    With Reaper, my sound is smooth, precise, punchy, clear ... even my clients I have noted that "refers to all the details" and so on.
    I did not believe at first, but I hooked very quickly and I did let go since. My DP snoozing and I still can not ...

    What I like:

    - That guy in San Francisco will be coupled to such a task with passion and are poised to destabilize the giant presence in the market of digital audio (my soul incorrigible independent speaker ;-)

    - Resolution 64-bit end to end with a collection of plug-ins staggering (over 100)!
    You will find very useful stuff and exclusive Reaper. Do not expect the pseudo-vintage look and so on. big button is pure basic but it sounds! In addition, you can organize your bookmarks into folders plugs, no more endless menus! Save your chains as plugs and remember them when you want. VST, VSTi, AU, etc..
    Number of tracks limited by the power of your bike, resolution recording and playback customizable.

    - Overall very configurable.
    Skins and their components can be downloaded from the site of Cockos, all colors are adjustable to your liking, etc.. I for one am done my interface via my favorite items to other users. Enjoyable when you know that most other apps require a graphic line sometimes questionable.
    A simple feature that I like: the ability to resize its faders in the mix virtual table and define their range (from -60 db to 12 db, for example.) Handy for mixing purposes.

    - Philosophy Community incredibly productive and dynamic.
    You've probably experienced the frustration of working on an app that you want to make a change or add a function. Reaper with the community, you will post your idea, users from around the world bring their lighting, their ideas further and Reaper team considers its implementation.
    I myself have already submitted two ideas that have been implemented within one month of their submission to the forum! I could not believe it :-)
    In addition, the Reaper community full of geniuses who think outside the box and push the soft land in unknown, very creative and forward-thinking.
    The SDK is available, you will find on the site of add-ons Cockos programmed by users.
    The updates come at a rate of about one per month ... Welcome to the 21st century!

    - Routing in all directions, side-chaining between tracks, a track type that does everything = link between midi and audio.
    Management of multi-out for virtual instruments.

    - Physical inserts via plug-in ReaInsert provided with automatic compensation of time (yes, in ProTools).
    Ability to program macros (series of actions) and assign them to keyboard key combinations (hotkeys) to save time.

    - MIDI basic but functional and developing countries.

    - 100% native, not of hardware imposed. Work on your laptop to the beach and in the studio on your main station ...

    - The demo is not constrained and can be used indefinitely.

    - Etc.

    The key elements still to be implemented:

    1. Function show / hide tracks = ability to hide or show the selected tracks.
    2. The warp markers (for Live or ProTools)
    3. of VCAs (or better)
    4. ...

    In short, Reaper is more than a soft, this is a pioneering project exciting.

    You understood, I'm a fan!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Compared to that I use cubase sx for 5 years I find this program better in many ways:

    - Performance: CPU more headroom, more stable, no crashes with many VST, instantaneous opening of the program, no zoom like a tedious project overloaded on cubase, everything seems more responsive.
    - Modularity: smart routing audi / midi, adding effects and navigation very intuitive once forgotten the previous habits. Modularity of the interface as well, with many skins really nice.

    - Possibilities: I see no obvious difference with software expensive, both in recording, editing audio and midi, mixing, automation, etc.. It is sometimes argued that it is less efficient than cubase at MIDI, I find it easier to use.

    In short I migrated. Counting a few hours to digest the specifics. Export / Import projects from my cubase is pretty tedious: export export midi + audio +? On all vst for each track (unless you have the presets). But it is a great way to take control of the software.

    Obviously it is a gas plant, so it's difficult to take over, especially since all menus are not perfectly organized. But overall I find it more intuitive than Cubase.

    Yet no French translation, but it suits me.
