Camelot
How does Camelot compare to Reaper?

I use to use pro tools, but found it was heavier than I needed. I've been using Reaper, and am mostly happy with it. I like how easy it is to use, yet still has almost all the functionality I would want in a daw.

And I like how it is relatively light when it comes to CPU usage.

How does Camelot compare to Reaper?

I must admit the ability to create set lists in my daw is appealing. It can be a hassle switching between songs when performing live.

But at the same time, I need something light (from a resource utilization standpoint) and stable. Stability is especially important for live performance. Nothing worse than your daw crashing in the middle of a performance.

Having attachments in my daw for lyrics and sheet music is also a nice feature for live performance. Again, avoiding the hassle of switching back and forth. So Camelot also has that going for it.

Thanks for your feedback!

Hi @Style,

Camelot was "born to perform" ;-)

It has been strongly designed for the live performance management. You cannot compare it to any DAW, it's not a DAW, it's mostly a host.

All our effort has been put to make it stable and reliable for the live performance. We are packing the update v1.0.4 that is going to be released next week, which will be much more stable and reliable.

As for the CPU usage, it depends on how many plugins are you going to load at the same time. What we have done in Camelot is to load plugins per "Song Container". A Song Container is usually a Song, but you can decide to use it as a container for a few Songs, if you need to switch with no latency between multiple Songs.

Camelot is a dedicated "Live performance" tool and obviously easy to use for that purpose.

I do very happily use Reaper for Live performance. It is cheap and extremely versatile, but not crafted for providing exactly this kind of "Live performance" functionality "out of the Box". Of course, other than Camelot, you can use it for usual DAW work, such as multitrack mixing/producing, as well. It's stability and efficiency seems to be quite perfect.

Hence Reaper can be used for what you want to do but it might be a lot of work to do the setup, as the count of options is huge.

Thanks. You've given me some things to think about.

Sounds like Camelot, being more of a host than a daw, has almost got to be lighter than Reaper, although reaper is pretty light.

That link of how to setup reaper for live performance is intimidating. Tons of info! I definitely like the idea of a tool that is already setup for live performance out of the box, rather than having to go through all that. Sheece!

I'm going to have to try Camelot and see for myself.

Thanks again!

For simple stuff both will be rather easy to get going. For a more complex setup, with Camelot you are limited to what the program offers and this supposedly will be easily accomplished, while Reaper is just a versatile tool for getting "anything" done by yourself.
