    Reaper Digital Audio Workstation

    Has anyone used Reaper on a project? I'm thinking about downloading and using it.

    Yes, I have. It is awesome

    I've used Sonar Producer, ProTools, and Reaper. Protools is probably as good as Reaper but it costs so much more. Reaper rules. imho

    Thank you for replying Fep. I've watched some video about Reaper and it looked amazing.
    And the licsense cost is completely affordable. I appreciate your time.

    The tutorial videos on the Reaper site are great, I usually mention those when I recommend Reaper.

    I am sold on Reaper! I've used Pro Tools some years ago, Cubase, Presous Studio One, Mixcraft, Sound Forge, Cakewalk
    and Tracktion among others. What I found with Reason that has made it my go-to DAW: price ($60 for amateurs like me), it recognizes more VST plugins than any other DAW I've tried, and it's insanely customizable. Also, I'm running on on a cheap seven-year-old Window machine and it's flawless. Bottom line: I'm sticking with Reaper!

    Cakewalk is now 100% free from BandLab. That is an insane game changer in the world of DAW.

    I've not really become 'expert' at any recording SW, but over the years I've always had something.
    Sonar in the late 1980's, then more recently Ableton that came free with some audio interface gear purchase.
    Abelton seemed more geared to live performance maybe? I used it for recording, but then I found Reaper and never looked back.

    Seems like there's already a good consensus here that Reaper is worthwhile, so let me just pile on another +1 vote for it
