Please add git to makedepends, without it I get

==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.

==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
==> ERROR: Build failed, check /home/sekret/.chroot/sekret/build

when building in a clean chroot.

Also please add lsb-release to makedepends, because without the build process starts with

==> Starting build()...
/bin/sh: lsb_release: command not found
/bin/sh: lsb_release: command not found

Where is it said that Reaper is distributed under a free software license (specifically GPL, as in the PKGBUILD)? (Update: I see that it's fixed. Just a leftover of a PKGBUILD template?)

Thanks for your hint, i fixed that. is included in the offical tar.xz, so no need to include the older one anymore.

The name of the source package in the PKGBUILD is wrong, it should be version 529 (and the corresponding md5sum needs to be adjusted to cd0dad09aac722b0558632878c1a86bb). Also, it would be nice if the file from could be included in the package (it should go into $DESTDIR/REAPER).

Found on

"And yet more REAPER for Linux news:

on the dev section of the site, today a "" has appeared. Putting this into the /REAPER/plugins/ folder where you have extracted the linux dev REAPER allows the ReaTune plugin to use the Elastique engine now - so now it has the same pitch correction abilities as the Windows version :)"

Thank you, I fixed the PKGBUILD.

This is not a stable release, hence your issues.
From the readme:
> This is a developer experimentation release. If you are not a programmer you
should not bother reading this, nor running REAPER.

The implementations for nice fonts is also a known issue:
> The default libSwell targetting is to GDK, which uses GDK for top level
> windows, and uses LICE for drawing/compositing child windows. An obvious
> next step would be to make swell-gdi-lice.cpp render text using FreeType or
> some other library, rather than the incredibly fantastic bitmapped font.

I had to edit the PKGBUILD in order to get this to build, both instances of:

Had to be changed to:

Above will build, but it appears to have font rendering issues (Possible that I do not have the right font installed) and does not correctly detect audio devices from initial testing.
