REAPER is a Digital Audio Workstation that I just discovered. Free demo and very reasonably priced for individual use.

Not sure where to put this but wanted to share with you my discovery of a Digital Audio Workstation software package called REAPER (and acronym for something).

For some audio and video projects I've done in the past, I had been using a combination of Audacity and Final Cut Pro X.  However, I have a new project coming up with (hopefully) more than 40 individual audio and video tracks.  Many of the audio tracks will require some sort of doctoring, and they will all have to be synchronized to a click track.  This project is a lot like the Fiddlerman group projects.

Anyway, it was obvious to me that the tools I had been using were not up to the task so I started looking.  While it is VERY complex (capable) it appears that REAPER was built for the task I have at hand for all the audio work.  I will still be using Apple Motion 5 and Final Cut Pro X for all the video and video effects.

What are you using for your plug in? > {Hardware} Straight into your PC or external DAW?

I will be receiving video/audio files from participants and importing them for the big project.  For personal use I'll probably be using a Zoom G3X either through a mixer or directly via USB

I've never heard of REAPER but it seems pretty reasonable.
I use MOTU's Digital Performer for mixing the sound before importing it to Final Cut.
I'm sure you will notice how much easier it is to have the finished audio file, separate and remove the audio from the videos.
