Hi Andrew, i understand that you use reaper to do all of your recordings but i read somewhere that you used to use cubase. At the moment i'm trying out cubase i haven't paid yet, but i find it very hard to get used to. Why did you switch to reaper and what's better about it?

Hi Steve,

I had an old version of Cubase and didn't want to pay a fortune to upgrade to get all the new features.

I find reaper to be very flexible in the routing and bussing department, and only slightly less functional in the MIDI department. For a fraction of the price it does way more in some areas, and only slightly less in others than Cubase. I can't think of anything I can't do one way or another in Reaper that I can in Cubase, and some things are a lot easier. Cubase does come with some basic synths (reaper has none) - but I don;t use them anyway so don't miss them at all.

Oh, and reaper gets an upgrade every couple of days, they are slowly but surely adding features, and they listen to their users! I once had a problem with a plugin, I reported it and it was fixed within 24 hours - I am sure that doesn't always happen but I was pretty impressed!

I'm trying to drift away from Cubase into Reaper....but it's just not appealing me yet. I'm sticking to SX at the moment. I'm sure I'd love to use Reaper someday, as most people here use it, so it could be useful smile.gif

Oh damn i missed this lol forgot all about it. Thanks Andrew i might look into reaper a little bit more.

Instead of making a new topic i might as well as this in here. It's about amp setups etc. With my PODxt i have my own rhythm patch, and a lead patch. But they use completely different setups ie, they both use completely different amps/cabs etc would this cause any problems or anything for when recording etc for final sound? Like one patch uses solo 100 the other uses line 6 insane. Was just wondering if there'd be a conflict in sound or anything. I know obviously if i were using real amps this would be a problem especially if i was playing live tongue.gif but its for POD so just wondering

There are no rules - if they sound good together, they sound good together!

And part of the skill in mixing is making things sound good together wink.gif

yeah, this is an art I'm trying to learn now....mixing and mastering...The Computer Music guides are VERY helpful by the way.
