  • The best DAW I've tested

    Cockos Reaper 4Publié le 12/04/14 à 14:32

    Test on a Kxstudio (with wine / wineasio) super stable, powerful, super, super easy to learn, super customizable. I use it for both dial / Laying out with VSTi for the pro record.

    The doc is pretty full, but if you're familiar with Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Pyramix, Samplitude and so on, you can do without!

    Side effect, it really is basic good reaXcomp is a good multi-band compressor, and allows reaverb, if you have good impulse responses (wav on the other hand), to have room reverbs quite realistic! After, if you have plugins like Altiverb, it's even better for sure, and will manage the Reaper carefree!

    Ditto for virtual instruments, easily integrated, and very stable!

    The strong points Reaper is:
    1- it's all tracks (buses, midi instrument, audio, everything looks the same way!)
    2- its customisabilité! You can really fit any workflow, it's just fun!
    3- the price !! It's just 10 times cheaper than an equivalent market leader ...

    RAS. an executable featherweight!
    I never read the manual because it looks like most other DAW that I use for 20 years now, but I do not do either of customization. I just use the DAW and existing config parameters without trying to create my own.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    i7 / 8Gb RAM. RAS pure performance level. After the plug-ins as it works more or less well. Sometimes Reaper is doing better, some other DAW offers a slightly better performance (AC is not doubled, about 10 or 15% more or less depending on the case, but sometimes it makes a difference ).

Sometimes Reaper is doing better, some other DAW offers a slightly better performance (AC is not doubled, about 10 or 15% more or less depending on the case, but sometimes it makes a difference ). For example, I recently acquired Recabinet4 and everything in Reaper background I crunches and I can not really use it without changing the parameters of the first DAW X3 but with sonar, it live on. on the other hand with Sonar, if I add a little reverb greedy, I have the same problem as in Reaper. By contrast with Sonar times I can stack 30 plugs before it saturates in Reaper and I get to 35 or 40.
    In short all that to say that performance level is kif kif with other current DAW (I also tested the newest versions of Cubase and Studio1).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use Reaper from the beginning, it's been a long time! What I like most is its simplicity (eg there is only one type of track, no need to choose audio or noon or else!). I love its modularity and the ability to actually customize the interface (it must also know how to program, but there is a good community not bring a lot of good things for those like me who can not program). I like the fact that it does not scan ALL VST / VSTi if one adds that! I also like to mix in Reaper.
    I like some of the original interface against, but there has very good skins developed by users.
    Short for short because there would be many things to say, this is a great DAW that does bother with nothing superfluous (no sample pack or other instrument of m # $% e), offers good performance (also depends on the PC of course) and everything has a ridiculous price! So if you do not want to break the bank and also have the ability to switch from a Windows platform has a MacOS platform with the same DAW, this is an excellent choice!

    Luckily I have otherwise I would have more serious DAW hands.

    Reaper is the best DAW ever had, and I had, loved heavy, complicated ...

    While Logic X bugguait crashed and I started a record via Reaper, hot. Nothing to do. It continues to run while I write this review, it is the least we can do. At this price it is a royal gift. I installed on my Macs both 32 and 64 bit, so I keep all my inserts and effects. I think I need to use the same rewire to use one in the other ... a test ...

    Spent two years of experimental app for my part in main app.

    Unlike (alas) Logic proX was well ADAT 8-track Fostex D90> RME UCX CLEARLY IDENTIFIED that appear in the DAW Reaper (see attached picture) I also do not understand why some find Reaper complicated ... there I tests only 2 tracks (since 1080 JV)

    REAPER is a very small download and a quick installation. It could not be any easier to get on your computer and ready to use. The manual is lengthy, but with plenty of screenshots and diagrams explaining each of REAPER’s many features concisely. Getting your plugins and MIDI devices setup is pretty much the same as other software packages, so there’s no hassle there.


    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The interface is snappy and responsive, everything is clearly laid out. The CPU usage is low and I’ve yet to encounter any instability or crashes even after 5 years of use.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The interface is snappy and responsive, everything is clearly laid out. The CPU usage is low and I’ve yet to encounter any instability or crashes even after 5 years of use.


    OVERALL OPINION

    REAPER’s features are pretty standard. Multitrack recording, flexible audio and midi routing, audio editing and so on are implemented just as you find in most other DAWs. The interface doesn’t have a lot of panache but it’s very customizable and the community creates custom themes and skins, drastically changing the look of the software. While REAPER is a very straight-forward program that does most DAW functions by the book, it does have a few subtle changes to the concept of tracks and bussing that are rather clever. There is no “audio” or “midi” track. All tracks are just general purpose tracks that can contain a MIDI or audio item or even both in the same track. Also, you can make any track act as a bus simply by dragging tracks underneath it and clicking the folder icon. This will nest the other tracks under the parent track and route all audio through it. You can also just drag and drop tracks into a desired bus track to nest them underneath. Very elegant and intuitive.

    Included are a suite of some very usable processing plugins. A couple of compressors, limiters, EQs, pitch shifters, a convolution reverb and so on. The interface for these plugins, much like the interface of REAPER itself, isn’t the most inspiring--it’s very bland with no fancy graphics, but the plugins work and fairly well at that.

    There isn’t a whole lot to say about REAPER, by design. The developers actively post on the forums and frequently update the software and keep on top of bugs and minor feature additions. It’s a powerful DAW that eschews a lot of bloat and flash, keeping things fast and simple while still delivering everything you need for professional audio production at a great price.


    Pros:
    +Fully Featured
    +Simple Interface
    +Low CPU use
    +Clever Bussing and Track implementation
    +Great, Active Community
    +Frequently updated
    +Low Price

    Cons:
    -Fairly bland looking
    -Doesn’t come with a sample or instrument library
    -No bells and whistles in general

You buy an app at a reasonable price because the publisher does not sell you its expenditures com, packaging, etc ... you buy the fruit quality developments.
    Less? may be the lack of editor partoches, though that's not really the job of a DAW in my opinion, but good.
    If Reaper continues to exist in its current form, I do not change it for anything in the world.

    A highly recommend !!!

    Ultra fast and without any problems installing, time to declare its peripherals (sound card, master keyboard, midi controllers), and it works.
    By default, the software is configured, but not too bad its great strength is that you can set all the way to simple skin to the other toolbars and keyboard shortcuts.
    The number of tracks is unlimited and a track can receive any audio or midi format without selecting anything.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for 3 years, I have not toured the possibilities of this sequencer.
    Former user of Adobe Audition I left since version 3, not taking more care of MIDI, I turned to Sonar 3 and I only had galleys and finally Reaper ...
    What I like most is stability, ease of use, customization and finally Reaper community is incredibly active and reactive.
    It lacks more than a score editor integrated worthy of the name, but be patient ...
    This software is the cheapest on the market and yet it is not ashamed to face competition.
    I think Reaper still stay on a long time because it gives me total satisfaction.

    I had many apps computer music too much to my taste (and that of my bank account ...) Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 to Logic Pro via Sonar, Samplitude6 ... And to my surprise, Reaper is No. 1 on the list.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought there over a year, but polluted by marketing I have never adopted, oddly preferring expensive apps ... With the experience I remake this choice for many reasons:
    - The price, unbeatable
    - Runs on Windows and Mac (single fault does not exist under linux)
    - Works with any sound card
    - Works with AUI, AU, VST, VSTi, nothing blocks, if a plugin is not recognized is that the plugin is poorly coded. This is the ONLY DAW that accepts ALL, plugins WAVES plugins Tone booster eaReckon, Melda Production, SSL, IK Multimedia ...
    - CPU usage ridiculous
    - Skins to have a look protools ...
    - Community growing, self-help videos on Youtube
    - Free updates every month or several times a month
    -Devs tuned continuously
    -Fully configurable

    I am not 10/10 because there is no Linux version, it is in my opinion the only lack.

    It can't get any faster nor simpler. It's only 7MB and the installation takes 30 seconds. Copy-and-paste VSTs from Cubase. And, bingo! Everything works perfectly!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Being a Cubase user, I switched to Reaper to mix and even compose. A really incredible software, it's easy-to-use, intuitive and with endless possibilities. Although I'm not one of those geeks that changes skin every week. It's really awesome.
