Thinking of switching to Reaper

I'm strongly considering switching to Reaper as my main daw. While I've dabbled with samplitude and do like it, I'm finding there's some things I don't like. It's upgrade price is rather steep and seems to rarely include major updates. It's hybrid audio engine is a bit limited relative to others if I'm understanding their operation correctly. Also there's a nag screen about updating that when I open the program, despite clicking the do not show again box. Also it's not really Atmos compatible with only 7.1 output.

3 DAWs - 3 sounds? Reaper vs. Sonar vs. Samplitude

3 DAWs - 3 sounds? Reaper vs. Sonar vs. Samplitude In this video, I test 3 DAWS by doing the exact same mix of the same song. There was a long debate as if every DAWs sounded the same and I thought it was time to get a true answer.

I also give a link to downloadable multitracks songs.

What do you think of the tests, convincing ?

Linux DAW shootout: Harrison Mixbus vs. Reaper

Can anyone help me with some pros and cons comparing these two programs?

Harrison Mixbus 4 vs. Reaper 5.40

For today's purpose, I am running Ubuntu with XFCE. I do not have an interface picked out yet, so that can be factored into the discussion.

To get started, here is the system reqs on Mixbus: http://harrisoncons…

Looks like it has built in support for Linux, and can also run VST plugins.

White Noise/Static while recording in Reaper.

Hey all, this will be my first post on the forum.
I seem to have a problem with static/white noise. even when my mic is muted on my Behringer x2222. My mic is an AKG P420.
The white noise always shows up when I normalize a track, whether I'm recording nothing or my guitar or voice. I'll put up some pictures of my configuration too. Thanks for the help in advance!

Monitoring recording in Reaper

Hello all!

I am new to DAW. I want to create nice guitar playing video like on youtube.
Recently downloaded reaper to try out.
I have; an electric guitar
interface (Behringer UCG102)
Guitar Rig 4
HP Win 10 laptop (Pavilion dv4), Win Desktop

I don't have problem plugging UCG 102 and using GR 4. I can hear guitar with and w/o effects very well through audio out on UCG unit (using headphone).

Big thump at the beginning of tracks with Reaper?

Hi, new here.
I've been using Cakewalk Home Studio 2004 for a long time, but it is fairly old, so after reading a lot of reviews, downloaded Reaper for trial. I like it a lot, think it sounds great, easy to use, etc.
But I notice when playing back the tracks, there is a distinct "thump" as the audio begins. Will this disappear once the tracks are rendered to a stereo wave file? Does anyone know what I'm talking about here?

What can you do in Pro Tools that you cannot in REAPER?

I've been using Reaper for years, and every now & then people attempt to brag that they use "Pro Tools", but I have yet to hear what is so significant about Pro Tools over a DAW like Reaper.

Reaper is capable of everything that I need and much more that I don't need.
(Now some might wonder what my use of a DAW is, but that is aside from my question ;) )

3, 2, 1 gooooo

ZED-10FX --> USB --> Reaper --> Windows 7

So this mixer kicks ass because it's analog, has a ton of headroom, and is warm as a candle. My question is, I've been mixing at unity (master knob at 0) and using the FET transistors for my guitar/bass and vocals (I use an XLR to TS to plug my mic into a compressor pedal and delay pedal and use the FET to overdrive the vocals, it sounds badass)

Please help! Problem with Superior Drummer 2.0 + Reaper

I Have a problem with mixing in SD2.0. In mixer panel, when I set the EQ, filter, the BUS panels, but It's nothing change by the voice.
I see some tutorials on yuotube, I make so the whole thing.
In reaper right click, insert virtual instrument on new track, and select on SD2. In reaper by all track (except the first), I select on record output (stereo).
In SD2, by output, I've select on multichanel, and that's it. Everything works fine except mixing by the bus panel, can somebody help me?

Sends in Reaper

Hey everybody,
This is my first post after being a bit of a lurker, so it's nice to finally post haha. Anyways, before I got an interface I was using a mic run through a little Behringer mixer, and I plugged a set of headphones into that for monitoring, everything hardware based. I just picked up a Tascam US-1800, and I'm a little confused how to send the tracks in reaper to the interface for my headphones.
