    I was watching the video and wondered why do a send to a separate verb/chorus track when you could just add verb/chorus to the normal track.
    I’ve seen this done on live consoles, but normally because they don’t have the ability to have all those effects per channel.

      You would do this to conserve CPU power and also so that you can have the same Verb on vocals or drums and things of that nature. Usually I don’t need more than 3 or 4 reverbs all together to get the mix sounding how I like it.

    Hey! Just sound your site, excellent stuff!! Finally a decent reaper tutorial site…

    I’m surprised you didn’t tell people about the even easier way to send a track to another, by just dragging from the send area of the first track and then drop the small jack that appears on the track you want send to… Sooo easy! Soooo nice! :)

    Anyway… thanks for a great site!

      That is a great feature! I’m trying to show the more manual ways of doing things(at least at first) so that there are less chances of mistakes.(ie dragging the track instead of just the send).

    I’m using reaper 4 and everytime i try and create a folder it doesn’t do it. what’s going on with this?

    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      Where are you trying to make the folder? In the FX area? Hmm… I haven’t had a problem with it NOT working yet so I wouldn’t know how to trouble shoot it. Maybe post on the Reaper forums for this one.
