Reaper 5.9

Professional results on a budget

I use Reaper in all of my tutorials. It’s a mature, stable and powerful DAW with the same features and sound quality as Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro etc. You can download a free, fully functional 60-day evaluation to get started. A discounted license for personal use is just £57 ($60).

Easy to learn, flexible and well supported.

Reaper is one of the easiest DAWs to learn with excellent online resources and a helpful user community. Everything can be customised to suit your workflow including toolbars, menus and themes. New features are added by the developers on a regular basis through free updates.
