MUCH faster, more powerful, more responsive, more flexible, more precise, and MUCH less expensive than Pyramix, Pro Tools, Sequoia, SADiE, or soundBlade, Cohler Classical runs exclusively on REAPER—including its state-of-the-art 64-bit floating-point audio engine—and is designed for multitrack, multi-take, track-group, source-destination editing of classical music, drum sets, and other multi-microphone acoustical audio projects. Available for Windows, Mac OS X, or Unix.
Johann Sebastian Bach

Cantabile, ma un poco Adagio
Classical music balance engineer working mainly in broadcast.
Lutenist and renowned recording artist Matthew Wadsworth has appeared at most major concert halls and festivals. His many CD recordings for Channel Classics, Linn Records, Deux-Elles and Wigmore Live have all received international critical acclaim, and have been featured as Gramophone Editor's Choice on three occasions. His most recent CD features the Stephen Goss Theorbo concerto written for him in 2018 and performed with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Cohler Classical brings unrivaled Source-Destination editing to REAPER. With unlimited track groups including 9 source track groups and 1 destination per tab, each completely collapsible track group can contain any number of tracks. Each group is set up identically, and you can cut and paste audio from any source to the destination with automatic crossfades, in 1 click or keystroke. The track groups are color coded, and each has its own set of 99 same-color markers for ease of editing. Furthermore, each track group has its own IN and OUT markers for quickly choosing sections of audio. Because the groups are identical, you can simply drag and drop takes between tracks as you organize your edit, and because the mixer is identical between track groups, the takes sound the same no matter where you place them.
The Cohler Classical Crossfade Editor is so much simpler, faster and more powerful than those in Pyramix, Pro Tools, Sequoia, SADiE, or soundBlade it’s hard to describe. But seeing is believing. All adjustments can be made using either a click-drag or keyboard-shortcut interface! Here is just a partial list of the features:
“Beautiful programming here from Cohler and Vitkauskaite… it is lovely to hear how they make such sublime chamber music together… Cohler’s virtuosity [in Zarabandeo] is spectacular… Ginastera’s Danzas Argentinas (1937) in a terrific, high-voltage performance by Vitkauskaite; and how well the piano is caught in this recording. The rhythmic spirit of the dance, the virtuosity, the sweet lyricism: all are here in abundance, the central ‘Danza de la moza donosa’ an oasis of gently rocking songful peace, the final ‘Danza del gaucho matrero’ a veritable explosion of fierce energy, Vitkauskaite’s finely honed technique absolutely at the service of this glowing music. Superb booklet notes fill out an outstanding release… A brilliant disc, life-enhancing and full of joie de vivre, all cased in a fine recording. Five Stars”
—Colin Clarke, Fanfare
“5 stars: …large-scaled performances filled with musical passion… [Vitkauskaite] plays the solo part as boldly as Rudolf Serkin, and [Cohler] conducts with more dramatic force than George Szell…”
“…engineering that combines inner detail with overall impact. The full dynamic range of the piano is vividly conveyed, as is the dynamic range of Mozart’s score…”
“… the orchestral sound in these performances is extremely vivid. The strings are marvelously rich at the opening of the Mozart, yet the horn cuts through with absolute clarity. The recording also conveys the orchestra with a keen spatial sense: I heard the interplay between winds and strings in both concertos as precisely located, though my listening system is nothing fancy.”
“…warm recorded sounds…”
“5 stars: energetic and finely crafted performances; Jonathan Cohler and [the Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra] present excellent interpretations that should be the standard for Mozart”
“…an exceptionally transparent and vivid recording that “hears” everything…”
“The recording is supremely involving…”
“The recorded sound is excellent; impactful and sharply defined, but without a trace of artificial enhancement or spotlighting…”
“In the modern era the two best recordings… came from Stoltzman (RCA) and Harold Wright (DG). Cohler’s account shines just as brightly, and it has enough added verve and style for me to prefer it.”
