Free or low cost recording software for Windows?

(1/2) > >>

Rob Spence:
I am new here to these forums though have been a long time poster in the Live Sound forums.

I am looking for some inexpensive (free would be best) recording software for Windows that uses the ASIO interface.

I plan to change over my mixer from ADAT Optical (to an HD24) to Dante but discovered that the recording software I thought I was going to use doesn't use the ASIO interface which is provided by the Dante Virtual Soundcard.

As soon as I can afford it (not now) I plan to get a Mac which has plenty of choices that use Core Audio.

Thank for any help.

Hi Rob,

I would suggest you take a look at Reaper. http://www.reaper.fm/ . It seems to be developing nicely and has a very attractive pricing structure. For individuals earning less than $20,000 per year it's only $40.


Rob Spence:
Thanks. That looks like it might do the job.

So, would this forum be a reasonable place to ask questions about the use of Reaper?

I have the stereo output mix routing through the digital network ok but what I want is to route the individual tracks to individual outputs. Going to RTFM now in hopes of finding the out patch information.

I would suggest the Reaper forum at http://forum.cockos.com/forumdisplay.php?f=20 . There would be far more experienced uses there I imagine.

Good luck

I'll throw in my vote for reaper. So cheap it might as well be free, yet VERY capable of professional work. I don't know if I'd run a commercial studio with it, but for many situations it's more than sufficient.

The thing I can't figure out though, is how the hell they've managed to wrap that installer into what...8mb or something?!?!?! Makes you wonder what everyone else is bloating their code with...
