DAW: Cockos - REAPER 2.2 / Pc / Pro / Free

Cockos releases version 2.2 of the excellent uncrippled shareware DAW - Reaper. Many important changes:

  • Now includes the fantastic new elastique 2.0!
  • improved looped recording/playback precision
  • better looping midi item precision when item length is not a multiple of sample length
  • MIDI overdub/replace: auto-insert of new items defaults to shorter items
  • MIDI channel rewriting in sends/hw outs no longer corrupts system realtime/exclusive messages
  • looped midi input recording latency fix
  • fixed bug resulting in excessive splits when recording using non-overdub/replace to in-project midi items
  • rewire slave mode: better samplerate detection/switching
  • re-added an old fix for Drumatic3 giving invalid samples (requires extra mainschange cycle on load)
  • control surfaces: better updating of mute state on csurf track mute change
  • Better drag&drop support dragging files to some plug-ins (Battery3 for example)
  • Floating FX windows now size themselves to current FX size (but remember their old positions)
  • Option (prefs/buffering/advanced) to disable mmap'd peakfiles (to conserve address space)
  • Changed default reginfo filenames for hopefully better Vista compatability

  • VST: performance fix for many plug-ins
  • VST: better mouse/keyboard activation for plugins like Kontakt 3
  • VST: better handling of resizing UIs when docked/undocked/floating
  • dev: new APIs for getting/setting track and track send parameters
