    I just got my hands on Reaper software to record with, just to find something to use to get away from Adobe Audition for a minute, and it seems to be a pretty good program so far.
    I haven't gotten far enough to try making beats with it yet, I'm not used to VSTi's. I'm not sure if I even have any stashed in my harddrive.
    The question is, does any one here know anything about this software? pros and cons? and where can I try out some free VSTi's?

    Reaper acts as an alternative to Cubase. It's a pretty good product but is still new and is constantly being updated. The Cockos website should have enough information on their site along with tips and tricks.

    Not brand new but new compared to the likes of Cubase (formerly Cubit!) which have been around for 20+ years.

    That's what Denaun Porter traded in Pro Tools for. I think Timbo uses one aswell

    The Miko/Neko series are like hybrid workstations/computers. they have all of your computer standards but are tucked into a keyboard workstation and use vsts. Hell people put pro tools on their miko also.
