Cockos Reaper is one of the most advanced programs for creating music, both in the studio and at home.
The main feature of the program is that it has pattern, keyboard and audio editing. You can set an unlimited number of audio or midi tracks, not counting how many VST format virtual instruments you can add.
Reaper does not take up as much hard disk space and does not load the processor as programs from the FL Studio, Cubase, Reason or Sonar series. With this program you can work even on low-power computers with sound cards that do not support Full duplex operating modes. Although, if the soundcard supports this mode, you will get unlimited opportunities to create your compositions with professional sounding even in formats such as 5 + 1, and with additional plug-ins, and 7 + 1.
A huge plus of the program is that it supports VST / VST3, not counting support for DirectX plugins. You can use both the built-in editing tools for audio or midi tracks, and third-party plugins. The program also supports the ReWire virtual instrument connection system. Thanks to the harmonious interface, you can always see what you are editing at the moment. The virtual multichannel remote control is always in front of your eyes – with its help you can instantly perform operations with changing the volume, editing effects both on a single track and on the Master track.
