REAPER (Rapid Environment for Audio Production, Engineering, and Recording) is a multifunctional digital audio station for recording, editing, information, and mastering songs. Despite its rather small size - the installed program weighs only about fifty megabytes - in terms of functionality it is not much inferior to such audio studios as Adobe Audition and Cubase. Of course, we should note here that it is not very correct to compare these programs; they are absolutely different classes. But the point is that in Ripera it is quite possible to achieve professional high quality results. It should also be noted that the Reaper developer had previously developed such a famous audio player as WinAmp.

Reaper in fact, is a multi-track audio editor, which is quite suitable for amateur sound engineers in small budget or home studios. Flexible editor settings allow you to customize Reaper for your own needs. And the support and built-in JavaScript interpreter makes it possible to create your own plugins, macros and much more.

An important feature that brings Riper closer to more serious programs is support for VST, VSTi and DirectX plug-ins. In practice, this means that it is possible to use commercial (or free) professional tools of third-party developers who use sound engineers in their work when processing digital audio. The program also supports a media sequencer, better known as "piano roll", which allows you to easily edit MIDI-sequences and insert them as audio tracks. It is also possible to record midi games from midi keyboards.

Rieper has all the necessary tools for mastering audio compositions: a virtual mixing console with all the necessary features: redirecting tracks, for example, to the effect-processor, channels, volume control, assigning pre and post effects (built-in and VST\DX), equalizers, лимитер\компрессоры, the ability to edit multi-channel panorama (stereo, quadro, etc.), output tracks to various outputs or внешние\дополнительные audio cards.

Reaper is a good compromise between price and functionality, a budget version of a complete digital audio station.

REAPER is a fantastic digital audio workstation program that works effectively and can handle a bunch of different audio elements thrown at it at once without lagging or suffering any audio quality. The workstation loads quick and can handle information and save files accordingly in a concise way.
