      Reaper vs Audacity opinions
      Most users think Reaper is a great alternative to Audacity.
      Reaper, while beeing less ressource hungry (totaling to about 15mb portable/installed) has everything you need to start recording and mixing music. The only thing 'missing' would be sound librarbies to use with MIDI, which most people order seperately for specific content.
