REAPER – DAW, software environment for audio production, recording and audio engineering. The audio station has wide functionality and is an advanced professional working system for creating, recording, editing and mixing audio and MIDI material, as well as mastering compositions. Includes a simple video editor.
If you add a hardware audio interface of your choice (AD/DA: A/D/D/A) and a microphone, you have a complete recording studio. It is suitable for recording anything from a soloist to a band to an orchestra.
REAPER turns your computer into the full power of any top-notch recording studio. It will support almost any existing audio interface. Even interfaces manufactured by companies whose software does not allow the use of any other hardware interface.
There are no track types, busses, instruments, or offline processing in REAPER. If you want to create a drum bus, just add a track above the drum tracks and click the folder button. The drums will automatically go to the folder. Once you’ve set the drum levels and FX exactly where you want it, you can record the folder’s output to non-destructively freeze the drums and move on.
