Another Reaper fan
« on: August 26, 2018, 10:43:03 AM »
If I'm reading things correctly it looks like there are no other posts here about Reaper except by chrisNova. There are tons of other places on the net to read about it, but I just have to chime in here about how awesome it is.

For just one example: early versions of Reaper didn't have notation support. A few months ago I had a project where I wanted to convert some ancient MIDI pieces of mine to notation and was amazed at how capable and well designed Reaper's capabilities are now.

Somewhere along the line I ponied up the $50 for a personal license and figure I've been well rewarded. I never really got into a decent workflow with Sonar, and early Reaper could be a little -- unpolished -- but its performance has never been an issue. The tiny size and fast install/load times are a plus too.

i havent spent much time with the software myself
but, i do remember that i was using it sometime back in 2013 or so, and i was trying to do something specific
and i was very impressed by their support, the support staff created an animaetd gif to show me how to do exactly what i was trying to do and i was really impressed..

they are good people the people behind the software!+ capable too
