Well, I've just spent two hours with Reaper and so far I'm very pleased. I rendered a bunch of WAV's from two T3 projects and started Reaper project folders for them...imported...did a quickie mix...piece of cake. You can dock everything...sounds good...batch volume and pan adjustments...skinnable....

yes, I use it with a quad core and the load balancing is perfect.

Reap just kicks ass in so many ways. It will take a while to learn but it is very flexible and pretty deep once you start poking around under the hood.

PC or Mac, either way. mac if you've got the money and PC if you don't I use macs for a lot of stuff but just bought a PC from Sonica for my studio The price was right, components are really good, the company is good, and the warranty is great. For interfaces I always advocate RME PCI or PCIe stuff ...

However, Sonar might be better, and I know for a fact that Reaper is very efficient at using multiple cores. It depends a lot on your software. I don't really know if 8-core systems make all that much sense for audio right now, but I don't have an 8-core system to play around with. Yeah, reap is gr...

RME gear is great for low latency recording (the PCI stuff)

I currently record with a Multiface and Reaper with 32 samples (0.7 ms) of latency.

If I want some more tracks I bump it up to 1.5 ms and it's still so low you don't notice it

Sonica is also a reputable place for audio computers along with ADK. You might have a look there too while you're shopping

PCI and PCIe beats FW if you're interested in the lowest possible latency

FW uses saftey buffers and, when you get into large track counts you'd have to use, in the case of RME gear (possibly the best FW gear out there), bandwidth limiting in order to keep your buffers low.

you could download reaper for free (and use it for free if you don't want to pay for it), import an mp3, then using the elastique algos built in you can easily do just that

plus its a damn fine daw

Is anyone using Reaper on an intel mac in windows? I'm guessing yes, but was just curious. I haven't tried that yet but the Mac version (available for download in the forum) is making some progress (0.40 preview build). It's supposed to be up to speed by the end of the year if not sooner.

What would the sound file view do? How do you use it, and is the workaround in reaper from not having it slowing you down? Can you show some pictures of it or explain how you would use it in a session? Yeah, good point. Actually, I would use it infrequently in cubendo for repairing the odd over eve...
