Digital Audio Workstation – Reaper


The first most important tool. The Digital Audio Workstation or DAW for short. This is like a multi-track recording studio for your computer. The one I use is called Reaper.

With this software tool, it’s possible to record vocals and live instruments, record virtual instruments using a midi controller, mix, balance the recorded tracks and produce what was once only possible from a physical recording studio.

Reaper is fully featured and free while you are evaluating it (see terms here) for 60 days, last time I checked, after which it is required that you purchase it for a relatively small price.

To quote the Reaper web site:

The evaluation version of REAPER is complete and uncrippled. There are no artificial interruptions or restrictions, and you can save and load projects normally.

We believe in giving you a fair chance to make sure that REAPER works correctly with your hardware and suits your workflow.

I highly recommend trying Reaper.
