Well, the Reaper freezesWhat. Whoa whoa whoa.
Has it ever done that before?!
I told my friend to buy Reaper as his entry-level DAW, but if it does this kind of mess, I don't want him to have to deal with it.
Please respond, etc.
The only time I had Reaper "freeze" on me was when, during playback, communication with my audio interface was interrupted. That is, the USB cable to said interface was disconnected while in use. Playback would just stop and just connecting the cable back fixed "the problem". Playback also stops if I assign the audio drivers currently in use to something else (such as minimizing Reaper. Which is great because you don't have to close it and reopen it if you want to listen to other things).
Using FL Studio at a friend's PC, if the above happened to me (sometimes because I was careless or just unplugged the interface without thinking twice) I'd get blue screened with some driver malfunction bullshit.
That said, I could probably keep 5 instances of Reaper running at the same time without slowing down performance or crashing issues.
Just personal experience.
