Reaper MIDI Resources
I own several DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation), Logic Pro X (Mac only), Avid Pro Tools (an older version), FL Studio, Cakewalk/Roland Sonar Producer, Sony Acid Pro 7 and Studio One. However, my favorite is REAPER followed by Logic Pro X.
Reaper is excellent for audio recording and editing and fine for MIDI too. Reaper has a very reasonable license cost and offers an uncrippled 60-day full demo. Reaper has great documentation and active forum. The parent company is Cockos, Inc. More information and downloads are at www.reaper.fm.

MIDI patches and banks for the ReaControlMIDI VST
I use a lot of external MIDI (and audio) gear. And that's why this work was created, to allow quick access to multiple banks and patches. The free ReaControlMIDI VST, developed by Reaper, makes it easy.
Download the free Reaper VST suite at ReaPlugs VST FX Suite. These VSTs will work with any modern Windows DAW. The suite includes the ReaControlMIDI VST used for the following sets of patches and banks. It also includes eight other useful VSTs, such as compressors, an EQ, delay and more. The Reaper DAW includes these with the standard download.
I wrote a five page manual on how to use MIDI and reabanks and how to create your own .reabank files. The Art of Reabanks - by joel Sampson. It is a PDF download.
To download the raw .reabanks, right-click and choose Save Link As. They are in plain pure ASCII text form. The Integra-7 collection has been archived together and you will need 7-zip or whatever utility you use to uncompress the files.

Free MIDI Drum Patterns
I also have a set of several hundred MIDI drum patterns available, now a free download. They are in General MIDI format. I sold thousands of them worldwide for $30 and $40. It's at another of my web sites, www.FivePinPress.com.
