Reaper is a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) which, despite being relatively new (we compared with developments as Logic, Cubase or Pro Tools) It is one of the most powerful alternative for users who choose produce music with your computer.
A complete DAW for Windows
This program allows us record and edit audio and MIDI, use virtual instruments and effects VST / VSTi, work with REX files and apply automation to any element by simply drawing the process with our computer.
All this from a very intuitive and attractive interface, which is not only easy to handle, but also very practical because it allows us to drag any item from the Windows browser to insert effects, add samples or create a new track for a MIDI instrument.
A set of tools for remixing, editing, audio processing and remastering.
Other features to note are the ReWire connection (Which lets you create a bridge between Reaper, Reason, ProTools and Ableton Live, among others) support ASIO sound cards and MME, effects processing in real time, sidechain options and a collection of effects and instruments to work from the first moment with the program.
If you are looking for an application for compose, record, mix and master your music, and want to run away from "Big 3" test Reaper and discover a complete and very intuitive application.
