because the sample rate is dynamic i.e. you can do smooth ramping of playrate and stuff i think. also saves generating lots of gigantic temporary files.

pro tools pre-processes audio on import and it's slow as hell. i think i prefer reaper's way. same with time stretching - reaper is way better in that regard (non-destructive time stretch yay). you can always manually glue items to lock them to the rate if you want to do it like that.
