Question for Cockos Reaper Users: Why Reaper?

DAW poll result

According to this poll quite a number of people seem to enjoy Cockos Reaper.

The idea behind the poll was to figure out a little bit more about readers.

I was actually expecting Ableton Live to be #1, with FL Studio, Cubase/Nuendo and perhaps Logic Pro in the top 5.

Reaper proved more popular than I thought.

So I am wondering, dear Reaper users, why do you use this software? Is it because it’s relatively cheap, the features, workflow, or something else?

Please share, thanks!
