Nice to know there are 9 people using Reaper, though. That sure learned me.
Have you ever seen a 'professional' use Nuendo...
You don't actually know what Nuendo is, do you.
Too lazy for reading comprehension, do you?

I failed to read what, you implied if not stated that professionals only use teh Pro Tools.
People pay the extra money for Nuendo for features which are about their job, Post-Production which people in a bedroom don't really have much use for, VR for games, extensive features to make someone that needs a faster workflow for games because of professional requirements.

So I'm supposed to have failed to grasp something from
[... ,] Cubase, Samplitude, Sequoia... or just anything other than ProTools?

How many 'professionals' do you know/have seen working?
?
You don't seem to know what argument from ignorance is, either, one supposes.

Aren't you kind of also just 'whatabouting' regarding a perception REAPER is not what pros use?
I mean I couldn't care a lot less than I do who does what, but I have some grasp of professional work in music for picture, for instance.

Nuendo is really the last thing you want to toss as an example trying to pull that (already a fallacy) off, that's all.

Suprised that reaper is doing so badly in this poll :D
Pro Tools is definitely my nemesis, ugh...

And while I've never used bitwig, its supporters are definitely the worst/ most annoying in how militant they are about bitwig being way superiour than everything else on the market

I'm afraid Reaper shares the same fate as Linux. It's for geeks
That's perception bias right there; because YOU don't 'see' it being used everywhere must mean that nobody uses it. right? While the largest part of the internet and large corporations run on Linux. What OS do you think runs most of the special effects in Hollywood. You could consider the possibility that reaper is indeed comparable to Linux in that regard as well. I bet many studios that use reaper (even in addition to protools) don't list it on their website as it is not a client magnet (but it runs somewhere close to the double track count of protools on the same hardware, so I can see the technical appeal for a big studio) .

So because you are not aware of professional use of reaper, it can hardly be something that professionals use and a bunch of guys on a forum that use (and in most cases advocate) something else INSTEAD of reaper must be the norm of course. But when I choose (and indeed advocate, why not) reaper over other alternatives, I'm a fanboy :dog:

By the way, big studios employ 'geeks' to tinker with hardware and software :hihi:

In certain ways Bitwig is superior, same with almost every other DAW. But reaper being superior in any way, and that being appreciated by part of the professional audio community, can't possibly be true :D

Oh, no, we're all sorted on that one, now that we know that the professional audio community appointed you as its representative, and your word on what 'they' think of reaper must be taken as sacrosanct.

Me stating some observation now somehow makes me the self-appointed representative of the professional audio community. So stating that Coca Cola is a bevaridge (also an observation) makes me the self appointed representative of Coca Cola :roll:

You're an idiot, which is also an 'observation' and does not make me the self-appointed specialist on white rabbit (although dealing with you here on the forum for almost two decades did give me some insight).

You mean when you were telling us what professionals do and why they do it without ever expressing it as an observation, especially when trying to representing it as factual because of 'interviews'?
Yes, that kinda does. :tu:
So stating that Coca Cola is a bevaridge (also an observation) makes me the self appointed representative of Coca Cola :roll:
No, because that's not even slighly close to what you were doing, and its a verifiable fact anyway. :dog:
( If, though, you were saying that 'more and more' professional caterers thought Coca Cola was the tastiest beverage one could buy, though, you'd be being a self-appointed representative of professional caterers.
Funnily enough that's a bit closer to what happened isnt it? :shrug:)

Well firstly, its 'whyterabbyt' not 'white rabbit', mr crysome woundlick. ( see, i can make people's monickers wrong too, aint it hilarious :roll:)
Secondly, you're not necessarily proving yourself the least biased person when it comes to passing off confirmation bias as 'insight.'
Thirdly, you've not actually been here for two continuous decades, you keep disappearing for years at a time, so that's a little bit porky. Plus my memory, with KVR's search function with backup, indicates Ive actually had very little 'dealings' with you over the years; Inflated representation of the facts, methinks.
Fourthly, Ive certainly done some idiotic things, but Ive also done some slightly clever things too, so Im not convinced by your extrapolation. Something that isnt pulled out of your butthurt would probably be a better 'observation'.
Fifthly, your alleged 'some insight' should have warned you about the pedantry. So points 1-4 are your own fault. :lol:

But thanks for the portrayal of the descent into sulking ad hominem that makes the cliched reaper user so popular. How about that Live Light, eh?
