I'm having trouble deciding...


Hey guys, I'm trying to decide on a DAW. Reaper or Cubase... Those are the two I'm debating on, Cubase might have more, (haven't been able to demo it yet so I'm not sure) but reaper costs about half as much... Is there anywhere I can get a total feature comparison for Reaper4 and Cubase 6?

I can't compare the two but I have heard so much good stuff about Reaper that i've decided to give it a shot.

All sequencers do roughly the same thing with minor functional differences.
Its personal preference finding one that fits you.
The nice thing about reaper is that you can try it out (there is no demo- its fully functional with only a nag screen at startup - you can also download and read the full user manual pdf for free) There are no Cubase demos, but you can go to any bookstore and find Cubase manuals; read through them and see if it's style of workflow grabs you.
Personally, I went from Cubase to Reaper and never looked back.
