By all accounts it should be, but I have not yet been able to get my old head around it. I find Audacity fine for fairly rough stuff.

well....is it?


Yes Reaper is much better than Audacity is many ways. You get a full mixing console as well as are able to drag and drop. You can also apply effects and order them then tweak them in real time while using Reaper.

Audacity however is free and so you wont get as many features.
For $70 you cant really go wrong with Reaper also keep in mind Cakewalk makes low priced sequencers as well which start around $100.

It's not necessarily 'better'. That's like saying Cubase is better than Wavelab.

It's got a much shorter learning curve and is okay as a basic wave editor, but Reaper has thousands more features, since it's aimed at a different market, and a different type of editing.

If you want a cheap DAW, Reaper is great. If you want a free wav editor, Wavepad is much, much better than Audacity. The 'basic' free version does twice as much as Audiacity and has much better controls/GUI.
