Anyone who knows me has already told me to shut up about Reaper. But why would I? Reaper is the best thing in the universe and anyone who disagrees is a damn fool.
Still, different strokes for different folks they say, so here’s an alternative for you if you don’t use Reaper (why aren’t you using Reaper?).
The cool cats at Tracktion are now giving away version 6 of their fully featured DAW and, by all accounts, it’s pretty damn swish.
“This is no ‘Lite’ version,” they say, “we do not impose track limits, plugin limitations or other such constraints commonly found in other low cost offerings. Why? – we think you will enjoy using the app so much, you will discover the value in investing in our latest versions and the expanded features we are voraciously adding. Innovation and creativity is what drives us – join the ride today and download T6 for Mac, Windows, or Linux operating systems.”
“Like all Tracktion DAW applications, T6 features an intuitive, single-screen interface. Input, waveform and mixer – including EQ, level, pan and plugins – are laid out from left-to-right. Simply drag-and-drop additional features and automation on any track as needed. Unlimited numbers of audio and MIDI tracks, combined with a professional feature set, allow you to compose, record, edit, mix and share your music with ease. Modest CPU requirements make T6 ideal for use on nearly any Mac, Windows or Linux computer.”

Otherwise, there’s still Reaper.

The interface is clean and easy to use. It’s also fast and light but very fragile. It crashes even with a mis-press of a key on your typing keyboard.
I accidentally pressed the Backspace button when there’s nothing to backspace about and it crashed.
Overall it’s very good though. And it’s free.
It’s fast, clean and beautiful. But a single mis-press keyboard on the keyboard when you’re not supposed to and it immediately crashes.
I pressed Backspace when there’s nothing to Backspace for and it immediately crashes.
But overall, it’s really good and I actually like this more than Reaper. Well, I’ve only used Reaper for a little while but free stuff is always better when they work. And this one does work.
