That's good news. I bought a linux magazine a few weeks back,
with a 32 bit ubuntu on the dvd, just in case!

Linux REAPER 5.50 is now up at the landoleet server. Justin has added elastique3 to the Linux builds, so hopefully the issues with Elastique2 in the Linux version are a thing of the past. This extra long development cycle from 5.40 to 5.50 was apparently due to the implementation of "automation items" - not sure what they are are or if I might use such a thing, as I don't use much automation to start with, but exciting to have something new to explore :)

Has anybody recorded and shared anything with native Reaper yet? Just curious if it can pass that real world usability test in its current state.

I'm excited about the prospect of at least a few new users coming over this way thanks to the popularity of Reaper.

I regularly record 13-15 tracks of drums with reaper, not a problem.

IMO it's stable and well worth checking out. One of the new features: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSBO_VC9q3E : :lol:

As a card carrying Ardour/Mixbus fanatic from what I've seen so far the MIDI features and ability to visually draw note velocities make the MIDI side of Reaper quite appealing, I've just dabbled and haven't produced anything with Reaper though..

I'm with you on this on Glen as a card carrying Ardour/Mixbus fanatic but my bass player is in Winnipeg and a Windows boy using Reaper so I am so happy for the native version so I don't have to use WIne or crank up my Windows 10 box.
I've tried using Drumgizmo in Reaper for Linux and it only loads in stereo, not the multi-channel like I can in Windows.
I wanted to try editing a midi drum file there. Found it not as easy as on Windows.

I figured do it all in Reaper when he sends it then use Mixbus for mixing.

Definitely a weak spot in Ardour and Mixbus, I can see that would be an appealing feature here.

Thanks guys, I will try it out.

The windows reaper in wine is faster, and more complete than the
linux version. The linux version does cover most of ones basics
for making a tune, and I can't say it's ever crashed on me. And I'm
willing to trade some speed/stability and test the linux port, just to feel like I'm snacking
and drinking unnoticed a celebrity party.

I switched to wine-staging at V 2.4, (2.16 currently) and don't think any of the new releases
have introduced regressions that would hurt a recording session.
All the commercial synths I've bought work by using vst-wrappers, .dll over-rides,
or the wine version. Even the new Line6 Helix effects demo works, thanks to osxmidi figuring out
you needed a six-character-or-fewer password for the registration.
The wine-reaper covers a few dozen plugins with gui issues wine still fails at.

My personal view of reaper, is that it stays out of your way, doesn't make
you do anything, and is laid out properly, left-to-right, top-to-bottom,
no up-side-down vertical text to parse, no arcade-based connection windows,
just easy paths to the parts needed for making a tune.

The extras that come with it are not exactly chopped liver. I hope to
learn the mega-baby sequencer before the first snows, or the last ones,
if you're among those shivering down in the white spring of OZ.
also the Reaper Blog is a good resource for tutorials and general good vibes
Good times ahead.

As a years long user of reaper in wine, it used to be my opinion that it would be better spent time to make reaper run perfectly in wine, instead of making a linux port. Partially because of the wvst support, but also because it was working so well, and just had a few blemishes, like no easy path navigation in the open project menu, etc.

That has however changed, as I'm using the linux version fulltime for a few months now. What is missing is basically alsa midi (jack midi works), jack transport and lv2/ladspa support. The lvst support is there and works fine with a gui with plugins like distroh, loomer, overtonedsp, pianoteq and u-he, while others might be broken. Quite a few lv2 plugins can be made to work with a wrapper, and an amazing amount of wvsts work using the linvst wrapper.

The software is stable, and is considered prerelease not because it's very buggy, but rather because of the above mentioned missing features and small things, like you might find that you can only navigate some field using left/right arrow, and not by using ctrl-left/right, etc. You might also find that some as of yet untested feature like say a control surface won't work, etc.

A good place to check out what reaper is capable of and to get an idea of what it, is would be: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq297H ... Q/featured

FWIW, I do all my multi mic tracking, editing and mixing in it now days.

That spectral waveform view looks incredible.
Has there been any official word about lv2 one way or the other?

AFAIK, it's coming but as I'm not a reaper dev I can't tell you when..
