A multi-track audio editor packing incredible number of features into a small download. Actively developed and supported on the official forum. The program is so intuitive, given an accumulated experience with other audio editors, that it doesn't need a help-file, which isn't provided, I imagine, because it would take too much effort to keep it current.

Nevertheless, nearly every option in the Preferences dialog is explained in a clear short sentence, which appears right on the program interface without opening resource intensive external programs, or requiring the user to skim through lengthy text. Functions in the dialog are also directly searchable, without needing to search the docs, and then following them to find the required button.

None of the above uses any bulky html/metro/net bloat. Where possible, the program makes use of Windows controls to draw the interface. The whole preferences dialog is very fast to scroll through. So the other comment about Win 3.11 isn't justified. Reaper did receive a major UI update of the skinnable parts once. But it is still possible to load the skin from verison 2 in the current v4 and continue using the familiar layout.

Reaper has codecs for practical, useful open file formats, there is a powerful batch converter (also with built-in help), which allows to use any installed DirectShow or VST (more reliable) effect. Reaper can load MIDI files, and unlike with sophisiticated editors, this process seems "lossless" (events aren't rearranged), and sometimes the reason why a file doesn't sound right can be found and manually corrected.

Later versions add video support through ffmpeg. But I've never found it to be precise or stable enough to be of any use for syncing. Reaper is not a sample-exact cut-and-paste editor; and doesn't replace Sound Forge for sound, nor Cakewalk Pro Audio for MIDI. It's a DAW works on a clip level.

If u use reaper and see its functionality, it seems to me that the other stalwarts like steingberg and presonus or other big names of the audio industry seems to be fooling the general public in the name of high-end products.

That's a stupid comment below, the pdf help file is excellent and fully comprehensive, and keeps up-to-date with all the frequent revisions. Plus it can be opened from within Reaper as a .chm file if you bothered to look into it a little bit.

The GUI is fully skinnable, so you can have the default functional GUI, or snazz it up to your heart's content, I don't see what you're gripe is here.

Pointless criticisms! Blah!

Cons:
* the help file is a separate download;
* the pdf file is poorly authored;
* the interface wants to "look cool" instead of being
"professionally-simple" --- the author would have much to learn
from the GUI of the old Midisoft Studio4 for Windows 3.1;

Pros:
* you can try before you buy.

Superb software that rivals all the biggies like Pro-Tools, Cubase, etc. Easy to use "out of the box", but plenty of power "under the hood" (hint: right-click for menus!). Has sophisticated on-board plugins, and supports all VSTs and VSTi's. The "Reafir" plugin can isolate, for example, hiss or noise from a VHS capture & remove it. Reaper seems to be very actively developed, and bugs are generally ironed out very quickly before new features are added. This is the same guy who made Winamp! Non-restricted 30-day trialware!
