I used to use Logic for about 8 years before it went mac only, then changed to Cubase. I used REAPER to do all my stage backtracks which were, back then, mainly General Midi, which it handled pretty well and it really has come on to become a good backup for me, particularly when I have had to do live recordings and don't want to unplug the dongle(cos I'm stupid and will lose it!!), I just dow the multitrack recordiung and drag them into Cubase for editing and mixing. so....REAPER is my second DAW, but a distant second to Cubase which I use every day.
