Cockos Reaper

Cockos has released version 3.0.3 of Reaper, a complete multitrack audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing, and mastering environment for Windows PC.

Reaper 3.0.3 introduces batch rendering, FX wet/dry controls, and lots of improvements.

Changes in Reaper v3.0.3

  • Fixes for action to crossfade at selection.
  • Crossfade at selection automatically splits an enclosing item.
  • VKB performance improvement (especially on WINE).
  • Peak caches: better validation of timestamps for varying timezones and filesystems.
  • Draw correct crossfades when an item sits on top of another item.
  • X key is mapped to crossfade selected items action by default.
  • Fixed delay compensation of untouched track channels for VSTs with latency decrease (ReaFIR etc).
  • Fixed delay compensation on untouched track channels for JS (including ReaMote).
  • ReaMote: fixed network thrashing with automated fx parameters.
  • MIDI editor: removed snap behavior where snapping is disabled more than 100px from grid.
  • Render: option to render at project samplerate, but output at a different rate (apply SRC last).
  • Fixed bug when undoing on certain projects with envelope lanes visible.
  • Fixed bug storing online rendering to project file.
  • Online rendering will pause for a few seconds before rendering to allow hardware to switch samplerates if necessary.
  • Project setting for item mix behavior (items can mix, replace earlier items, or replace enclosing items).
  • Actions to enable or disable auto-crossfade on split.
  • -renderproject hides main window from view.
  • Fix for plugins that create multiple envelopes when loaded with automation write on.
  • Fixed MIDI editor actions to move multiple notes up or down.
  • Track MIDI input can be mapped to any channel.
  • Fixed move cursor to start of previous measure action when starting on beat.
  • Preliminary wet/dry knob for FX.
  • Look for embedded track name event when importing single-track MIDI.
  • Option to not reset MIDI CC on stop.
  • Queued (batch) rendering support (Queue render button in render dialog, menu/action to bring up queue).
  • MIDI editor: control-drag also copies CC messages when moving CC with notes.
  • Action to toggle maximize all tracks will maximize first.
  • Fixed adding tempo events via transport when tempo envelope is hidden.
  • Support for changing BPM from within ReWire slaves.
  • User config for external MIDI output threading (restricted to one thread by default).
  • Fix for ripple editing + tempo marker issues.
  • OSX: better hidden-mouse UI behavior (with Synergy detection as well).
  • OSX: cleaner looking buttons/popup buttons (todo combo boxes).
  • OSX: enabled FX folder rename/delete, drag FX into folder.
  • OSX: fixed item fadein cursor.
  • OSX: better support for detecting mouse activation for BFD2 etc.
  • Internal queue optimizations.
