    Yes I've seen the price of these go way down and I was puzzled as well. I would say they're an absolute steal at that price and for your intended purpose of critical editing & repair as they are closed and extremely comfortable.

    From my (limited) understanding about impedance vs. freq response when it comes to headphones, there are so many complex factors, variables and interactions going on, and so any perceived freq response changes across different impedance cans can range from "barely noticeable at all" to "night and day difference". I would say, just as long as you have a good amp to drive them then the consensus seems to be that higher impedance will have a "cleaner" sound with less distortion and noise/interference.

    I use Reaper in each day for all my tasks. Starting with FX editing, podcasts, meditations and of course Music. But only for MIDI(with my Korg PA600) is very hard to work. In this case, Sonar X3 is more friendly.

    Hi Vitalie!

    I'm very interested to know about your MIDI experience with Reaper because it's definitely a complaint I hear a lot. Actually I work with MIDI on a daily basis and with just a few custom toolbar buttons & actions & menu commands I'm finding it pretty smooth for my needs. Although I don't know how good it is on the other side or if I'm missing out :D

    There are quite a few major players who have really been pushing for plugin subscriptions to become the norm. You have the Slate All Access, the Plugin Alliance Mega sub, Waves, SSL Native, Kush Audio etc...

    However this move still seems to be facing fierce resistance from the pro audio community, and rightly so in my opinion. Audio plugins are not Netflix after all - there is no one single developer that can provide us with all we need and I'm sure we all have our favorite plugins from various different developers and would like it to stay that way.

    Having said that, I have been actually interested in the SSL Native sub as it provides a great set of bread-and-butter tools that can serve as a very solid backbone for every session. Another selling point for me is that SSL is doing a good job so far preserving the value of their plugins by not offering crazy $29 discounts for them every couple of months like many others do. So subscribing to them could make a lot of sense if one hasn't got the funds to buy the full bundle outright.

    How do you feel about subscriptions? Where do you think it's heading? Do you already have some ongoing subs?

    I have given Reaper some chance lately.

    Let me tell you, I've been blown away by it's performance. It's by far the most well written DAW there is. I can load a shit loads of plugins in it and it doesn't break a sweat. Tons of features too (it's the only DAW that has build-in client-server implementation for loading plugins on a server to share resources).

    BUT.

    I can't get used to it's interface. Especially the mixer.
    I tried some themes, and I found out that the Logic theme was best for me, still though, I feel there's something about its interface that doesn't actually feel right.

    I wish they could pay much more attention to the UI/UX. If they do, this DAW will be simply the best.


    Yes well I think with the new V6 they've showed some real intent in that regard, as it's looking & feeling better than ever and they've introduced some interesting things like embedded FX. Admiteddly other DAWs have already had such features for a while (and also integrated gain reduction meters which Reaper still lacks but have already added the functionality for it within the code so it's a matter of time). But it's getting there!

    In terms of themes I was always happy enough with the default theme but there is this new one that has really blown me away and it simply makes Reaper look and feel better with no "gimmicks": Smooth 6

    Interesting. I always have a blend of top & bottom bussed to a single track then working from there, without touching it again or processing the individual mics. A bit of bottom mic always adds a nice sizzle/crack, although yeah sometimes I do end up having it way low in the blend. It also depends on how much hihat bleed is in there and how intrusive it can get.

    Some people swear by micing the side of the snare although I still haven't tried that myself...
