What did the Reaper fat boy geek fag say to the Garage Band user? Answer "I'm better than you!" Reaper is not for musicians. Reaper is for geeks who like playing with loops and figuring out how to use Reaper to do quasi musical things. Maybe some recording engineerd might have something good to say about Reaper because it is stable and maybe it's OK for mastering BUT it's not for creating music. It's simply too much of a pain in the ass
Reaper might be OK if it had decent tutorials but the only help one can get it for it is the Cockos or CockBite forum or some poorly done videos.
Apparently the geekoids who designed Reaper did a decent job with the code because it is stable but to say it is user unfriendly is an understatement. Reaper like many DAWs is downright user hostile. The counter intuitive nature of it sucks but what sucks more is the lack of clear instruction.
Getting snap to grid to work so that you can drop in drum samples is a fucking nightmare. The assholes at COCKsuckeros have never heard of bars 1/4 notes, 1/8 notes, 1/16 notes, 1/32 notes or 1/64 notes. I tried inserting bars of drum samples. They don't sync and when you move them they still won't sync no matter what you do. Getting the tempo is easy but there are no grid lines for snap to grid that work. I don't think the word NOTE even appears anywhere on Reaper.
Geeks should not even think that they are musicians and they should stay far away from anything musical. Geeks are souless creatures who should stick to being digit heads and stay out of anything artistic.
Most music sucks today and a lot of the reason is because of the digital recording and studio wizardry. Electronic music is bad enough add pitch correction, samples, VSTi, digital effects and you get the sterile music that seems to be the norm these days.
