For instance, as I posted in the other thread you've started on the same topic, I have a very similar vintage of iMac, also 5k screen, and also recently updated to Sierra. I don't see the laggy response you do, and find Reaper perfectly workable on it.

I don't say this to annoy you. I say it to try and help you pin down what is DIFFERENT on your setup and causing the problem, since it appears not to be universal to iMacs, or 5k retina displays, or OS Sierra. If you would like me to give more details of the exact config of my system, please say and I'll try to oblige.
Hi Andy, If you drag the Marquee tool on the bottom half of a wave file that is zoomed-in to make a selection, you don’t have any problems with a choppy GUI? Or if you resize the Reaper window, scroll a wave file…? Not an arrangement with one wave file but a reasonable real world scenario.

Thanks for trying to help.

I understand you are not saying "it works on my system" to annoy me but presumed there are not that much variables between similar iMac systems (hard and software). It could be perception by comparison or using Reaper in a different way?
