Default Nirvana (well almost)

I've just got to brag on Reaper. This is the absolute best and most stable program I have ever used.
Been piddlin' with some songs all day today and no crashes, no glitches,no problems whatsoever. The only frustration is me learning the ropes.
I'm coming from using N-track for about 4 years and this is soooo much more gratifying and sooo much less of a chore to use thatn N was.
Keep on keepin'on Justin.

Beliefs do not require respect. People do.

Hey AllDay-
I'm with you -- I've ditched N-Track for Reaper (but with a heavy heart). It's a bummer, because N-Track was responsible for my re-discovering my love for writing and performing music, and for getting me started on a wonderful new adventure of recording in my basement. But it had become so unstable for me that I couldn't even open some of my old projects without crashing.

REAPER, by contrast, does everthing I could do with N (and more), does it better (no appreciable lag on the VU meters!), and does it on the same machine without breaking a sweat. Awesome!

My only fear is that all these requests for more features will eventually screw up an amazingly good thing!

Yep new features has sure eaten Flavios lunch. The midi has never come together on N for me. The audio is ok but the graphics just stink I mean the redraws and such. Looking at the "whats new" page when you download N you see that most of "What's New" is bug fixes. That didn't seem to be the case years ago. And ya know it seems that Reaper sounds better. I don't know how this could be. It's all digital right?
I haven't really loaded a song up with plugs and things in reaper yet. It may have issues too but I doubt it from the way it is behaving now. And if it does I think it will probably die gracefully as opposed to N taking down the whole machine and making horrible noises.(Well, some of those horrible noises were mine)
Any way thank goodness for Reaper.
