Reaper: not another DAW, the other DAW?

For audio recordists, maybe you’ve not heard yet of a recording software called Reaper. If one had to sum up this DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with a few words: convenient, affordable, well very affordable, solid, stable, compatible with much hardware or plugins. Plus its developpers are listening carefully to its users, making frequent (free) updates and trying to grant customer wishes. Yes it does exist! I have to admit I really dig their philosophy. People on forums sometimes talk about how they gave up famous DAW like Pro Tools, Cubase or Logic for Reaper. To be fair, let’s say that in terms of plugins they do not compete (yet?) with Logic or Pro Tools, but if you use third-party plugins, like most users do, it’s not a problem at all.

Composed, recorded, mixed, mastered by cats’ eye on January 29, 2010

This afternoon I’ve decided to do the following thing:

Composing (and improvising), recording, mixing, mastering one song. I wanted to experiment with distorted guitar layers. Here’s the result.

This is not perfect, for ex. the double voice is improvised, this is the first take you hear. I wanted to use only spontaneity in the process.

The XX

Album theme

Oh yes and the theme of my new record is the “social mirror”. That’s why it’s called Perspectives. (Not only because of Gehry’s building on the cover).
By the way the picture hasn’t been deformed, the building’s really like that. Gehry’s the architect who recently build the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao. Interesting work, but he’s not one of my favorite, though I really like what he did in Prague.
What are your favorite architects by the way? Just post your answers on the comment page if you feel like.
