    Good news. I'm probably not far from the day I'll have to do a computer upgrade, as my machine is probably 5 years old now (still runs pretty well, though, surprisingly). Glad to hear Reaper's stable on Windows 7.

    It's working awesome for me. I LOVE this program. I have had problems with some drum plugins etc that aren't up to speed with either 64 bit or Win7 but not Reaper (although I occasionally jumped to the conclusion it was Reaper's fault. Mea Culpa).

    Great. Now I want to buy a new recording computer, and there's no way I can afford that!

    Ive got a win7 64 bit test rig here.

    Lots of companies and plugs havent made the move yet, but for the stuff that has its been good. The reaper bitbridge is working pretty well, but some plugs dont like it

    Yeah, I got lucky there. The plugins that I use don't have any problems working with Win7. In fact, because the new laptop is a 7200rpm drive and 4 gigs of ram, most are working much better. No clicks, no pops, no freezing.

    All in all, I can't complain. I was thinking of upgrading Reaper before they get past 3.99, but I'd gladly pay for another license if I needed to.

    Using the latest 64bit version, no hiccups! Works great.

    Yeah, mine is a 64 bit version too...

    And I upgraded Reaper to 3.21. I really like the changes to the interface.

    Bump - I'm grabbing a pretty-up-to-date Windows 7 machine for cheap from a buddy of mine who just switched to a Mac. Anything I should know about configuring Reaper on Windows 7? I use a Presonus Firepod (and I already checked - there are Win7 drivers available), if it matters.

    Thanks!

    Bump v2 - so, I'm on a Win7 machine now, and while I haven't done much with it thus far everything seems to be going smoothly.

    I'm running 32 bit, though. Assuming the change to 64 won't be an issue (I have a computer savvy friend who's down to do it for however much beer we can drink in the time it takes to back up all my shit, update to 64 bit, and then dump it all back on), what's the performance difference between 32 and 64 like for Reaper?
