REAPER is a digital audio workstation: a complete multitrack audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing, and mastering environment.

Fast, Powerful Editing

  • Drag and drop to import, arrange, and render
  • Freely mix audio, MIDI, video, still image media on any track
  • Easily move, split, glue, resize, trim, loop, time stretch, pitch shift, fade, crossfade, slip, snap to grid, without switching tools
  • Intuitive zoom, scroll, scrub, jog, tab to audio transient, MIDI navigation
  • Simple and powerful nested folder system allows group editing, routing, bussing, all in one step
  • Full automation recording, playback, and editing support for track controls and plug-ins
  • Easily manage tempo, time signature, and varispeed changes
  • Separate audio or MIDI into freely arrangeable takes and lanes for easy comping
  • Easily copy or move regions, to quickly try out alternate arrangements

Plug-in Support

  • Insert almost any third-party audio or MIDI plug-in: VST, VSTi, DX, DXi, AU (OSX only), JS
  • ReWire (audio and MIDI) any capable application for even more flexibility
  • Fully automatic plug-in delay compensation (PDC)
  • Sidechain any plug-in, even if the plug-in does not natively support sidechaining
  • Apply FX in real time, or non-destructively render FX output
  • Real-time network FX processing: use other local machines as an FX farm

What's New:

  • Crossfade editor:
    • activates for selected items that are adjacent or overlapping
    • crossfades can be constrained to be equal gain or equal power
    • default mouse modifier, double-click on crossfade to open/close editor
    • new dialog for editing various parameters of crossfades
    • themeable colors for active fades
  • Fades/crossfades:
    • new S-curve fade shape
    • changing crossfade shape via right-click menu affects all selected crossfades
    • default crossfade shape is equal power (existing projects are unchanged)
    • fade curvature can be edited via mouse modifier, media item properties, or crossfade editor
    • new cursors for fade/crossfade curvature, crossfade width adjustment
  • Mouse modifiers:
    • added behavior to move item contents and ripple adjacent items
    • new action to adjust length of two fades keeping intersection point constant
    • new context for fade intersections
    • support optional snapping for all fade/crossfade behaviors
  • Cursors:
    • new cursors for resizing the extended mixer (extmixresize, extmixmultiresize, extmixallresize, extmixsectionresize, extmixmultisectionresize, extmixallsection_resize)
    • support for colors in custom cursor images
  • Grouping:
    • doubleclicking track vol/pan/width labels now resets using grouping/ganging
    • improved volume fader grouping behavior when some faders are at -inf
  • Item mouse hit zones:
    • allow mouse to target buttons and fades even if another media item is overlapping
    • mouse targets the fade curve by default (can be disabled in preferences)
    • option to always show fade-in/fade-out handles
  • JS:
    • improved font display on win32
    • reduced fx initialization interrupting audio
  • OSX:
    • fix for render-drag problems with external drives
    • REAPER.app and ReaMote.app now have signatures for OSX 10.8
    • render-drag to a new file outside of REAPER (commdand+opt by default) prompts before overwriting an existing file
  • About: fixed usage statistics being reset when switching between 32/64 bit
  • Actions: option to stop playback at end of loop
  • API: added PreventUIRefresh which allows scripts/plugins to disable and reenable many UI updates during processing
  • DDP: fixed MD5 generation on OSX 64
  • FX: improved threadsafety in certain instances
  • LAME: support loading LAME DLLs from UserPlugins path, improved prompting
  • MIDI: fixed items that would not play in certain rounding instances
  • MIDI inline editor: fixed buttons when zoomed in
  • OSC: fixed FX parameter feedback for inactive tracks
  • Pan: track pan value can be manually entered in track controls dialog
  • Pans: manually entered values like "R50" and "L25" are accepted, in addition to "50%R" and "25%L"
  • Project bay: fixed loading of bays in certain instances
  • Project save: support for adding multiple project versions to rpp-bak files, choosing version on load
  • ReaControlMIDI: automation support for enabling/disabling bank/program select and CC sliders
  • Render: fixed saving render presets in different categories (bounds, output, all settings)
  • ReWire: further improved shutdown/device unload sequence to better handle panels that prompt before exiting
  • Routing windows: space passes through to main actions, for keyboard navigation use shift+space
  • Sends: volume/pan values can be manually entered in I/O dialog
  • Snap to grid: don't snap to grid lines that are more than 1/4 screen width away
  • Tempo envelope: more consistent behavior when adding/deleting tempo markers when project timebase is beats
  • Toolbars: fixed crash when using certain strings as custom toolbar button text
  • Video: improved rendering accuracy near end of render when using resampling
  • VST: fixed audioMasterTempoAt accuracy in certain instances
  • Windows: installers now have authenticode signatures
