Cockos - Reaper v0.953 (Pc/Free)


Changes:

* Experimental new feature: "ReaRoute" acts as an ASIO driver usable by other applications, and lets you route their inputs/outputs to REAPER.
* Improvements in the FX add dialog (renaming, rescan, JS effects editing).
* Option for no scrolling view to edit cursor on stop (default).
* Hardware outs are affected by solo as long as they are post-fader.
* VST scanning dialog doesn't come up unless actually scanning a new VST plug-in.
* VST transportchanged notification for FL Studio, etc.
* Synth's tiny "C64" sample project.
* Fixed looped recording synchronization.


REAPER is a powerful but sensible Windows application designed for the recording, arrangement, editing, mixing and rendering of audio. REAPER provides a flexible but easy to use interface that is equally suited to amateurs and professionals alike.

Some key benefits of REAPER are:

* Extremely small footprint (full featured, with an installer that is approximately 1MB)
* Easy to start using: simply drag and drop one of many kinds of files in to edit existing material, or insert a track and arm it for recording. No complex project or definitions to set up.
* Fast and powerful editing facilities: split, resize, fade/crossfade, pitch shift, timestretch, copy/paste and loop media items with ease. Ripple editing is available, too.
* Unrivaled routing capabilities: send tracks to any number of other tracks or hardware outputs, with lots of options (pre-fx, post-fx, independent faders, mono or stereo). Not interested in advanced routing? You don't have to use it (and it certainly won't get in the way.)
* Powerful recording options (supports pre-fx, post-fx recording, can record mixed output of multiple tracks, etc), supports switching record inputs/modes on the fly, input monitoring options (including tape-style auto input monitoring mode), supports auto-punch-in/punch-out, and more. If you want. Otherwise, it just behaves as you would expect.
* Support for MIDI files, recording MIDI, and VSTi/DXi softsynths. MIDI can be integrated and mixed with audio.
* User arrangeable user interface with color themes: make REAPER look how you want it to look, and arrange (or hide) elements of the user interface to suit your needs.
* Support for consolidating track edits and rendering track stems, to enable easy export for other applications.
* Includes many Jesusonic effects, and supports many plug-ins (including VST and DX plug-ins) with full plug-in delay compensation.

REAPER versions 0.4-0.99 are freeware, but starting with version 1.0 the license will change to very reasonably priced (with amateur and professional rates/support) uncrippled nag-free shareware, supporting unexpiring full functionality in unregistered form.

Basic features:

* Support for an unlimited number of audio tracks
* Audio tracks are all fully routable (multiple inputs, outputs)
* Volume, pan controls and envelopes per track
* Supports audio processing plug-ins (DirectX, DXi, VST, VSTi, and Jesusonic) with automation, easy chain manipulation and editing
* Pitch shifting and time stretching
* Fast, reasonable and usable Windows-style UI, working well on both low and high resolutions or multiple monitors
* ASIO, Kernel Streaming, WaveOut, and DirectSound support for playback and recording
* Reads WAV, OGG, MP3 and MIDI files, records WAV and MIDI files
* Can render to WAV, OGG, MP3 if lame is installed
* Full SMP support (can utilize 2 or more processors)
* Multi-layer undo/redo support
* Basic MIDI editing support
* User creatable color themes

Advanced features:

* Unlimited send/receives per track, with configurable parameters (pre-fx, post-fx, volume/pan adjustment/envelopes, mix to mono, phase, etc)
* Any track can act as a bus, giving amazingly huge routing flexibility
* Tracks can have one or more (mono or stereo) hardware sends, for analog mixing capability
* Fully routable/FX-able folder tracks that can contain and group tracks
* Item grouping
* Ripple editing
* Grid/snap support with highly configurable options
* Markers and Regions
* Unlimited takes per media item
* Auto punch-in/punch-out functionality
* Automatic record monitoring modes
* Selection length granularity options as well as grid snapping
* Tempo envelope (for grid lines/snapping/ruler), playspeed envelope
* Project consolidation/export options (for rendering all or parts of any number of tracks to WAV/etc)
* A UI and architecture that allows you to easily cut loops of many tracks simultaneously, without having to write them to disk
* Support for plug-in generated media (such as click tracks, etc)
* Project tempo envelopes for variable tempos in track, grid/snapping that supports variable tempos
* 64-bit floating point sample pipeline for high quality
* Advanced recording and monitoring options -- examples:
o You can route multiple tracks (inputs and/or media items) into a bus, and record THAT mixed down version.
o You can record the input signal, or record the post-FX, post-track-rendere signal.
o You can switch recording sources on the fly, even while recording.
o You can arm/disarm tracks' inputs while playing or recording.

A sampling of qualities that makes REAPER sensible:

* Sane, human readable, human editable, backwards and forwards compatible project file format
* Options to build peaks for recorded files on the fly
* Lots of control for the user to specify where recorded files go, etc, when dealing with many projects.
* Template support to make it easy to load a project template and save it as a new project when you begin.
* Input/output channel name aliasing (why view your inputs as "MOTU 896: Analog 1" when you could have them be "Vocal Mic", etc).
* Options for automatically backing up project files to alternate paths, timestamped versions, etc.
