    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.
