REAPER 4.731 Rev 87a685 / 4.74 Pre 6 Rev 8fe80f

A comprehensive software solution that can be used to record, arrange, edit, and render multi-track waveform audio, as well as batch convert files
REAPER is a tool that lets you record, edit, mix, render and arrange multi-track waveform audio. It sports complex features, so it has been designed for power users.

Seamless installation with portable advantages

The setup process runs quite smooth, and it even lets you choose a portable installation. Choosing the latter option enables you to take REAPER anywhere with you on a USB thumb drive, and does not make any changes to your registry or hard drive without your approval.

Array of features in an easy-to-use GUI

The user interface is friendly and easy to use (by experts), and it is divided into several areas - the main menu, right-click menu, main window toolbar, track control panels, main window and edit area, timeline and mixer.

It is also possible to view other areas, such as the floating mixer master, big clock, dynamic split, FX browser, transport bar, and virtual MIDI keyboard.

Wide variety of options and performance

REAPER supports input and output aliasing (you can give names to your audio inputs and outputs), MIDI devices, VST plugins, envelope editing, user-defined interface themes, custom actions and macros, 3D surround, mouse modifiers, pitch envelopes, Media Explorer preview time selection, multi-channel track monitoring, input recording and track meters, configurable per-channel diffusion, and more.

The program uses a moderate amount of system memory (which is quite surprising), comes with a complete documentation that can be downloaded for free from the developer's website, and its overall response time to commands is very good. Moreover, we have not encountered problems of any nature when testing this software.

Bottom line

In conclusion, REAPER is certainly a professional tool for experts in the audio editing department, so beginners would have trouble handling it properly (yet learning is an option). The variety of controls makes audio processing a breeze.
