    Wicked man, thanks for this. I had no idea you could have multiple dockers.

    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      Yeah man, one of the cool new things from Reaper 4.

  • Kundalinguist  says:

    That was quite helpful. Thanks Jonny.

  • Link  says:

    This is cool, for some reason though whenever I switch back to the editing one, it insists on having the master track showing on the right…

    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      Oops! All you need to do is right click the master channel and Un-Check “Dock Mixer in Docker” and then re-Save it.

      Sorry about that.. I went through that in the un-edited video.. but i must have cut it out with something else.

  • Adam-TheDizzyRecords  says:

    Awesome tutorial man. I set up my second screen to act as a mirror screen for clients to watch, so being able to quickly check the mixer is a huge advantage. Thanks for sharing.

    PS: I hate to be the jerk that points this out, but you put “bottom” instead of “button” in the video description.

    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      Oops! thanks for the heads up! :-)

  • Geir  says:

    Very good tutorial!

  • Dali  says:

    Thanks a lot for this. I’m happy to have pay for the DVD and seeing you’re still produce more stuff is fantastic. REAPER and their fans are in a separate category for sure!

  • ed  says:

    Thanks for this tutorial. I always wanted to work on a window like this.

    A problem though: for some reason when i create the second track, the inserts&sends from the first one disappear, and now i have 2 faders on the left side (mixer). If a create a third track a 3rd fader appears making all of them smaller. Whats the way to keep the inserts&sends always visible for the selected track?

    Last, i thought i could see the “show used CC lanes” on Repaer 4 but i cant seem to find this. Is it not implemented yet? Any major problem to have this little feature in?

    Thanks again!

    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      It seems like your mixer is stacking. You need to un-check the “Show tracks in multiple lanes” or something. I show that i the first like.. 2 minutes of the video.

      I’ll have to look up the show CC lane thing.

  • ed  says:

    sorry man, that just skipped to my eyes.

    About the CC lane i found this:

    So i am afraid its not possible yet. :/

  • Martin Neal  says:

    Sorry Jonny, at 3 mins 52, you move from tracking screenset to mixing. You say, ‘We are going to move this on back to the bottom”….but you do it so fast I cant see what you grab or how. sorry to be a drag,,but its got me.


    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      Oops! I click and drag the little grey border on the bottom.

  • Daniel Lyons  says:

    Dang i love this tutorial but now for some reason it constantly keeps switching my mixer on the left so that it makes multiple rows. I just want it to stay one row like yours is.

    • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

      lol. Yeah you have to st the mixer to not show multiple rows. That’s if the very beginning of the video. Open a new session with no tracks and right click that little mixer area. One of the options will say something like “Show mixer in multiple rows”… Uncheck that. :-) That should do it!

      • Daniel Lyons  says:

        No what I meant was I uncheck that jsut like you say and then each time i reopen reaper it forgets my setting and then shows it in multiple rows again.

        • JonnyGinese JonnyGinese  says:

          Well I did not show you how to make a “Default Project”

          Once you load the screenset you want as your default press “ALT+ENTER” and on the bottom right of that you have a button that says “Save as default project”

          Then every time you load up reaper it will load it like that.

          • Daniel Lyons  says:

            Thanks. I tried that. But it didn’t seem to change. Not sure why but at least it’s not a huge deal.

  • Billy Shuler  says:

    This is going to come in handy. Thanks for the tutorial.
