Reaper 7 approacheth.

How much more can they improve this Software?people say the midi Editor isn’t so good. Why not?

It suffers from incoherent design and an unwillingness to redesign. I can’t use it without a couple of scripts without it being a miserable experience.

When you use Cubase or Studio One things work the way you’d expect them to and you can tell it’s designed by people who produce music.

Reaper is good for the semi-openness and ability to get in there and script things in different languages. Something truly open source like Ardour is better, but they really need to make their build scripts friendlier to get the full advantage of being open source. I think they are protecting their donations by making it non-trivial.
