Basic Overview – Save Session | Default Setup | Record Audio | Simple Effects

Category: Tutorials

This is the first video from Tutorials For Reaper and it goes through the very basics… default layout, track creation, basic effect usage and saving your sessions.  Once you have watched the video you should be able to do the following:

1. Save a New Session

2. Create new tracks and record Audio(midi will be covered later)

3. Understand the basic elements of Reaper are located (i.e. Trasporter, Tracks, Mixer)

4. Be able to apply effects to a track, Bypass/Disable individual FX as well as FX Chains

      I’ve never tried to do this before.. I’ll see if I can figure it out.

      In the meanwhile post the Question on the Reaper Forums http://forum.cockos.com/

    Video tutorials a good idea but 2 comments:

    1) this specific video, the window is too small for me to see what the mouse is clicking on – maybe it’s resolved if you view the video direct on YouTube; or rearrange the page winodw so more space allocated to the video shots? My watching on a small laptop screen doesn’t help.

    2) installation video – is one really needed? Or is this signalling the possibility that Reaper (may) depend for (some of) its functionality on various codecs and other bits and pieces that might have to be got elsewhere?
    Example: the pdf User Guide page 309 talks about inserting ReaFir in the FX window but at first blush I can’t see it being present. Have given up for the moment and will revisit it later…

    3) Following on from #2, it seemed to me a possibly good addition to a video is to show how to do a Noise Reduction. Say you have a mp3 of speech only, something like 16kpbs, 22kHz, mono, but it is marred by a uniformly pitched background hum. Audacity etc noise reduction surprisingly ineffective and cannot remove the hum. How would Reaper handle that and what steps would be involved in effecting noise reduction? Would there be add-ons needed for instance?
