REAPER is a powerful but sensible Windows application that lets you record, arrange, edit, and render multi-track waveform audio. It provides an extensive set of features, but is a very small and lightweight application (the installer is less than 1 megabyte, and includes many effects and a sample project).
REAPER supports ASIO, Kernel Streaming, WaveOut, and DirectSound for playback and recording. It reads WAV, OGG, and MP3 files, and records WAV files. You can arrange any number of items in any number of tracks and use audio processing plug-ins (DirectX and Jesusonic). REAPER also supports volume, pan controls and envelopes per track, multi-layer undo/redo, and user creatable color themes.

Blows Protools away (if you take the time to learn it).

OK for price. ProTools blows it away.
Reviewing 2.45 Beta (Aug 27, 2008)
Excellent program does more than its bigger counterparts with less bloat. Its not free but its reasonably priced for sure.
REAPER is not free. Be sure to purchase a license if you use it past the evaluation period. The full license agreement will be presented to you when you run the installer.
People or companies who wish to distribute REAPER (i.e. as part of a magazine or with hardware) may do so by agreeing to the REAPER Software Distribution Agreement.
