Reaper 5 Review: Why I Love Reaper DAW
Reaper DAW. A blog post about why this brilliant Digital Audio Workstation is my DAW of choice: –
What is Reaper?
The name comes from; Rapid Environment for Audio Production, Engineering, and Recording (REAPER).
“A computer-based application which offers advanced multi-track audio, MIDI and video recording environment in both 32-bit, and 64-bit download versions for Windows and OS X”.
Pricing and distribution is somewhat unusual, because it relies on the honesty of the user.
Is Reaper Free?
It’s your choice to buy a license, which I think is very generous because don’t most people love everything to be free these days?
A discounted Reaper DAW license key costs $60 (around £50 UK Sterling) if: –
- REAPER is for your own individual personal use, Or
- You are an individual or business using REAPER commercially, and yearly gross revenue does not exceed USD $20,000, Or
- You are an educational resource or not-for-profit.
Does Reaper stop working after 60 days?
The reaper evaluation period expires after 60 days, but the application doesn’t stop working.
The license key gives access to a crazy feature rich DAW, with more than 300 FX plugins (‘ReaPlugs‘) and a dedicated development team for just £50! which is staggeringly good value for money.
