The downside is that vst offers more plugins than rtas and tdm. Also you have to have their dedicated software. Reaper does not need hardware and can used ASIO For All so after $40 you can basically start going to town. Also you can put it on a number of computers with the license.
Anyway I just had to show Reaper’s superiority over Pro Tools. lol
You can use VST with Pro Tools, you just need a VST wrapper and it works fine. Though most commercial plug-ins come with RTAS versions as well. It’s when you start using all freeware and donateware that has problems.
To be honest, I haven’t had a problem with PT and has worked fine for me. Only gripe is the program not working without the interface on the LE/M-Audio versions. That just limits you to what audio interface you can use. But since I need to repair mine soon, I’ll be deciding to stick with it or not.
I’m currently setting up a Windows audio machine again, so I’ll be trying out Reaper soon to see what’s all the fuss about.
