"REAPER is a powerful Windows application for multitrack recording and editing of audio. REAPER provides a flexible but easy to use interface that is suitable for amateurs and professionals alike."-reaper.fm website. That pretty much says it all. Brought to us by Cockos, Inc.
, REAPER is a decent recording environment, and while it isn't as full featured as ProTools, Audition, or some of the other professional recording applications, it also doesn't need a huge memory or hard drive space overhead to get the job done. You may have seen Jordan's post on REAPER
in December last year, but it was only up to version 0.42 at the time. Now REAPER is at version 1.05, and it seems that the developers have been busy. I am pretty impressed with this latest version, and if Jordan didn't convince you then, the deal now sounds much sweeter.

This is the track control interface, which is basic looking, but very intuitive and simple.
