Reaper, even the current version, is quite forgiving of PPC systems, and the developers are seemingly unique in the DAW world in that they prioritize backwards compatibility, so I think you could keep updating your PPC Reaper for some time without worrying. It also comes with very good bundled plugi...

Sometimes I worry that I sound like a secret marketer for Reaper. I'm not. I don't work for or even know anyone at Cockos. I'm just an uberfan.

Your first best friend is the right-click. Right-clicking almost anywhere will bring up a useful context menu, so if you're ever confused, chances are that right-clicking in a relevant area will show you something useful.

I built two LA2As (version 2, I think). I'm halfway through a pair of Redd47s as well. I love the LA2As.

I love Reaper to the max. I use it every day, and every day I love it more. I've used Cubase, Nuendo, Logic and PT, and prefer Reaper hands-down.

And regardless, a Hakko 808 will make your life so much easier! Repairing PCB gear is less of a headache with one.

I'm not looking at mine right now, but I'm pretty sure the inside slides forward through the outer case, which is more of a tube than a removable top and bottom.

That being said, FMR are a great company to deal with. If you need to send it in, I'll bet they will charge little or nothing to fix it.

Also, ATR is a great company to deal with.

The LED bulbs I've seen so far are a little too "strobey" for my taste; are there any that don't flicker so much? I'd love to go LED, but haven't seen many kinds of LED bulb.

I wouldn't even be so concerned except for the danger presented by my incendiary guitar playing.
