Description: Cockos Reaper is one of the most advanced programs for creating music, both in the studio and at home. The main "chip" of the program is that it has pattern, keyboard and audio editing. You can specify an unlimited number of audio or MIDI tracks, not counting how many virtual instruments can be added to the VST format.
Reaper does not take such a large place on the hard drive and does not load the processor, as programs from the series FL Studio, Cubase, Reason or Sonar. With this program you can work even on low-power computers with sound cards that do not support Full duplex modes. Although, if the sound card supports this mode, you will get unlimited possibilities to create your own compositions with professional sound even in such formats as 5 + 1, and in the presence of additional plug-ins, and 7 + 1.
To the great advantage of the program is that it supports VST, not counting the support for DirectX plug-ins. You can use both built-in audio editing tools or MIDI tracks, and third-party plug-ins. The program also supports the ReWire virtual instruments connection system. Thanks to a harmonious interface, you can always see what you are editing at the moment. Virtual multi-channel remote is always in front of your eyes - with its help you can instantly perform operations with changing the volume, editing effects on a single track, or on a Master track.
