cons: when you want to learn how to do something in Reaper, you have to disrupt your workflow and go ONLINE to download a stupid manual, and by the time you search for it, download it, find out what you wanted to learn from it, and decided on where to store the manual on your computer, you completely disrupted your workflow. Can you believe that? It's 2013 and this dumb program doesn't even self-contain a pdf manual. Give me a break.
Also, like Cubase, 'Logic' (funny name) etc, it's incredibly crazy. To learn how to quantize a few bars of midi I had to tear my hair off, 'cause in the dumb 'manual' , when you enter a search term like 'quantize midi' (makes sense, right? ) comes up with ZERO results.
These problems were never created by musicians, they were created by computer nerds, and it shows every time.
