I did try ezdrummer first but I preferred the grooves and kits in Steven Slate drums, they're pretty similar in how they look and work.

Good luck with the recordings and keep us posted on how you get on with the DAW.

You can select one from Google as per your actual needs. Any of them can record video on your desktop screen in high quality and help you create a tutorial in an easy manner. As for me, the following one, Joyoshare Screen Recorder, can show me flexible solutions to do this job.

So far I've not needed many extra get plugins for what I do in reaper, all of the stock ones that come with reaper have been good enough.

I use Steven slate drums to do my drum tracks and sometimes use a midi controller with that but it needs to be mapped to the software, this is done really easily though and I even found a YouTube video showing me how to do it.

Reaper is really quite clever the way it works and the ease of workflow in the program. I find it much easier than protools personally and a lot cheaper but it really comes down to which DAW you like using.


Glad I found it!
I don't consider myself a pro DAW user, since I am a hobbyist musician. So I wanted to know - as someone coming from another DAW - will there be any big hindrances about switching? Currently I'm using Studio One for general recording, and I heard that the Reaper is much lighter comparing to other DAWs. I would really like to be able to get all my VST Stuff working properly without spending too much time on relocating all the libaries or stuff like that. Is this even possible?

Moving from one daw to another shouldn't be a problem, they mostly work in a similar way, one thing my friend noticed when he switched over to reaper was more of his plugins and vst worked in reaper than the other daws he'd used
