Man, I gotta say: the more I use Reaper, the more I want to make love to it and risk getting dumped by my girlfriend and thrown in jail.
At work, we only have Macs, which is totally fine with me, but we run Logic. The problem with that is that I don't personally own a mac, so whenever I work from home, I need to work on something else. I'm very limited with Pro Tools. I have an mbox 2 mini, and any plugins that came with LE 7. That's fine for basic stuff, but I'm not exactly doing "basic" stuff all the time. Also, I'm way limited on tracks, and PT just eats my CPU. So, naturally, I've been using Reaper. And basically, now that I know that it works well for film sound in stereo, I'm gonna trying mixing in 5.1 soon....but ironically, I'm gonna try it with music first.
I guess all I'm saying with this post is: My name is Tim, and I like Reaper.
Also, I apologize if I'm preaching to the choir. I know how big Reaper seems to be 'round these parts.
Reaper is a great product. And this is coming from someone who's been using Logic and ProTools for longer than I care to admit.
If you haven't caught up on the history of Reaper's developer. You might want to take a quick glance at it. There's a very good chance you were using some of his earlier software on the PC without knowing it.
