Default Remove version number from Linux installation file name

Currently the Linux installer file name is
reaper664_linux_x86_64.tar.xz.

Please rename it to just
reaper_linux_x86_64.tar.xz

Whenever installing on a new machine it's great to setup all programs with one script. Sadly Reaper isn't available in any package manager, nor in the Snap store, but at least I can say:

sudo apt install libc6 libstdc++6 alsa pulseaudio ffmpeg vlc libgdk3.0-cil libmp3lame0 jackd #qjackctl-y &&
cd ~/Downloads &&
tar xf ./reaper664_linux_x86_64.tar.xz &&
echo -ne "i \n 2 \n y \n y \n" | ~/Downloads/reaper_linux_x86_64/install-reaper.sh

But having the version number in the filename means I have to remember to edit this command every time I run it.

It's in the official Arch Linux repositories. And Homebrew on macOS.

Thank you! I'll use that.

I tried Manjaro, but literally every forum answer and article is for Ubuntu, so it just wasn't worth trying to be different.
