For all of you interested in trying out REAPER or getting started with music, they just changed their policy to allow for a 60 day trial period.
Since I'm such a fan-boy of REAPER I thought I'd get the word out there for them. A license is just $60 if you're a beginner or semi-pro.
I've been using reaper for 3 years on a trial period (they call it evaluation period, same thing really). If the trial is 60 days now that's actually a downgrade and means I'm gonna be in even more debt now that I have to pay for fixing my pc AND buying reaper.
Cause debt is always fun.
How is that a down-grade? It's still unlimited... It just means there's less pressure on people to buy it so quickly.

More, you mean, because the original trial period was unlimited.
No you've all misunderstood.
It is NOT crippled in any way. The trial used to be just 30 days. Now it's 60.
Doesn't mean it stops working after 60 days either. -_-

The trial period has never been unlimited. It just doesn't stop working after the period passes. You should still buy the software after, they just don't stop you from using it despite that. It's your choice to buy it or continue to use it, and I think this is very kind of them to allow for this.

Heard or tried for yourself? As far as I can tell on their site it's still unlimited in that respect...
The evaluation period was unlimited in both functionality and time, and it acknowledged this right in the "buy me" dialog that popped up every single time you open the program. I've been using it a long time, I'm not making anything up for the sake of argument, that is how it was.
I'm not complaining either, I would need to buy it soon either way as I'm using it to record the metal portion of my album and I can't sell anything recorded in the program until I at least get the discounted license.
The only difference between the trial and evaluation periods (which has no time limit) is that one has no pop-up telling you to purchase the licence. That non-reminder period has been extended to 60 days. Um, good, I guess?
I don't really thing that's huge news, as long as the product remains free after the period is over.
Need some music for a flash or game? Check it out. If none of this works send me a PM, I'm taking requests.
