Reaper Vs Pro Tools
- 1 Reaper Vs Pro Tools
Reaper is a lovely DAW and you don’t have to move away from it unless you have a reason. Use what you like.Most professional studios, or studios/engineers who need to work with pro studios, use Pro Tools because it was the first system that made computer recording and editing professionally feasible.
It is much easier to just open a session from the same program than to import everything, so people are standardized in the system that worked.
Almost everyone around then got it in the early 1990s
and continued to update over time. There’s more variety in the modern music Studio – many other daws can see the use. Many studios have in stock software versions of several or even most major daws,
but will only have special hardware and hardware for one – and that one is usually Pro Tools. (With third-party hardware processors like UAD, this becomes less of a problem than it was.)
However, if the Studio wants to do any work on the film, the Studio will use Pro Tools. The entire
but also because it handles a timecode movie relatively elegantly. It was also the first major system that was developed to handle playback effects for mixing movies, so this is again partly the case of the first time to market. It makes editing sound effects for an image,
recording score, and the final mix for an image in multiple surround versions very simple where other daws don’t (or just recently added features).
If none of them is a problem for you, or if you are satisfied with how Reaper handles the problems, then enjoy using it! If these are problems you’ve experienced, consider getting a trial over a few other daws to see if they fit better. No one forces you to use anything else (unless the client or employer insists). For years I have been using Protools M-powered 8 on my 2.3 GHz PC with Windows XP. The problem I’ve always encountered was the limitation of RAM on both Protools (32-bit) and 32-bit Windows XP. Also, I recently discovered Reaper and found that even in my 32-bit Windows XP system, Reaper can handle much more VI and plugins than Protools on the same computer.
Now that I’ve upgraded to a New 64-bit Windows 7 PC with a lot of RAM, I’m wondering if I should update protocols or stick with Reaper.
First, because I no longer use them-audio sound card, I can’t even use the ProTools m-program running more than 8; I need at least a ProTools 9 program to be able to use other ASIO-enabled sound cards like my RME kid. Now I use Reaper as a DAW.
Secondly, Protools 10 is not 64-bit and I have just upgraded my computer to a 64-bit system. Reaper does it all: 64-bit, VST etc…
But…I’m used to Protools and it has some lovely VI’s built-in, it has a Maxim that I find great in the process of mastering and it has a bomb factory that I love.
So I would like to know your opinion on the matter Proteoly against the Reaper. What can Protools 9 or Protools 10 give me that Reaper 4 can’t? Can I get a replacement for the Maxim or bomb factory compressor (1176) in Protools?
