I've been using Logic for well over 20 years, but bounced around between various DAWs once they stopped making the PC version ages ago.
I've been using Reaper for the past three years or so and I really like it. I could never get comfortable with Ableton - despite it being excellent software. Main thing for me was lack of customization for key commands.
Anyway, Reaper has so many advantages for electronic music production, especially those requiring flexibility in routing or microedits: Excellent bounce in place functionality, ability to have effect chains on a per EVENT (rather than per track) basis, sample-edit editing in the arrange window, plus about a million more things.
I suppose some downsides could be the relatively "primitive" GUI and simple built-in effects.
If anyone is curious, here's a DAW runthrough of a recent track in Reaper.
Anyone else using it? Happy to hear all your tips and tricks...
Thanks for listening,

Gotta play some gigs in 77.3% relative humidity later this year, want to take a laptop and probably a couple of Elektron box, maybe some other bits.
Anyone had experience in this sorta hot wetness? Is it sheer madness? Should I leave everything at home and perform my music via body percussion and vocalisation? Do I need a magic bag to put everything in?
I started working on some new Lemon Melon tracks after taking a 15 year break, I used to release music on MP3.com back when I was between 11-15 years old, and I've painstakingly uploaded all 200-odd tracks I made 1999-2002 onto bandcamp, and these are the "comeback" track of sorts:
If you like some of u-ziq or Wagon Christ's samplier moments, are old enough to remember Freddy Fresh, Fatboy Slim, Bentley Rhythm Ace or Lemon Jelly, you'll remember Big-Beat music. It had a few forms, Prodigy and Chem Bros probably did the harder, darker side of bigbeat, but others like The Wiseguys and Loop Da Loop just wanted to have fun.
I'm coining the term "dotBizbeat" to refer to the slightly dodgier style that evolved post-"For Your Ears Only" when people started using low-quality DAWs on family computers (whilst at the same time registering cheap .biz domains for themselves) to make crap Big-Beat by taking cover disc samples and fucking with them. I'll be having fun with trying some of those for an accompanying EP, but Lemon Law is aiming to hopefully be closer to the second-wave of post-"You've Come A Long Way, Baby"-mania that took the late-90s radio for hostage.
