I have just been kicked in the pants by this thread. I haven't used the program since last August. There have been a few additions to its functions in the intervening months. I am about to download the latest version and investigate its MIDI routing facilities. Also I have not tried to use it with Reason 7 but expect it to wok as smoothly as it did with 6.5.
Lol Wasn't trying to kick you in the pants friend! The features I think are awesome in Reaper is the fact that there isn't a difference between midi and audio tracks; the key commands are easy to remember; loads of import and export options; simple routing matrix; customizable VST plug-in favorites section; 3rd party Vst support; very stable; stereo/mono split merge options; and last but not least.....my favorite of all....track folders and group folders in both the mixer and arrange areas.
And how could I forget to mention....the price $65
If I wasn't a "one stop shop" kind of guy, and if Reaper was more producer friendly, I'd definitely buy a license for my Mac...but I'd rather mix in the daw I created the song in..verses creating a bunch of stems, on top of stems to mix. Plus I like mixing while creating for some weird reason. But I still say Reaper is one of THE MOST under-rated Daws out.
