Elastic Audio in Reaper – Stretch audio | Warp Audio Like Pro Tools | Sync Vocals | Align Audio

Category: Tutorials

This is a slightly more advanced tutorial for editing audio so that you can align tracks such as syncing up a harmony to a lead vocal. The skill can be used on things like bass guitars, electric/acoustic guitars, keyboards and so on.  I would NOT recommend this method for drum editing; I will cover a recommended process in an upcoming tutorial.

Learn how to manipulate audio so that you can correct time and alter a musician’s performance when needed to make the overall recording sound as “Tight” as possible.

Customize Menus – Basics of menu alterations | Export/Import | TCP | Mixer

Category: Tutorials

So on the Reaper forums where is ALWAYS someone wondering how to make a Pro Tools look alike, don’t get me wrong here… I was one of them too but there isn’t any simple way to do it… well… until Shane has the time to finish up ReaTools.   I would recommend that you try to customize your menus to what YOU want them to do… not what AVID wants them to do.  Trust me when i tell you, Pro Tools was nice, but making Reaper behave the way I want it too is much better.

Think of it this way:

You have 1 setup for Tracking: All your input settings, takes, track removal, punching, buffer settings, midi controls, etc… nothing more thne you need because when you right click you only want to see “takes – Take – 01, Take – 01″ not a 15 option long menu.

You have 1 setup for Editing: All your shortcuts f...

Changing Reapers Theme – Download | Extract | Menu Options | Forums

Category: Tutorials

Welcome back to TutorialsForReaper.com, I’m Jonny from Red Sneaker Records, and we are going to go over changing your theme in Reaper.  I have linked 2 of my favorite themes at the bottom of this post, so I would suggest downloading them and following the instructions.  If you absolutely love the Reaper default theme then I guess you don’t need to watch this video… But if you’re like me… You want something a little sleeker or maybe even flashy.  One of my biggest issues with Reaper when I first started using it was the way it looked. Sounds kind of dumb I guess, but I came from using Pro Tools which I was very used to and I wanted something similar… or better.  Anyways let’s go on.

So click on the “LampShade – Apollo” link here at the bottom of the post… Click Run… Run a...

Audio Interface with Asio4All – Latency | Monitoring | Buffer Settings

Category: Tutorials

I discovered a nice universal Asio driver today from ASIO 4 ALL .com. You would use this Driver if you don’t have a properly supported USB, firewire, PCI or integrated sound card. OR if you want to test to see which is better.ASIO Logo

My Previous video I mentioned that I was using WaveOut… Which works fine, But these ASIO4ALL drivers are AWESOME!. I did a test to see how it compensated for delay and it’s perfect. I currently have some cheesy RealTek HD integrated sound which with the WaveOut option was un-usable for monitoring while recording. With the ASIO 4 ALL driver set to the lowest buffer, which for me is 64, I can still hear a slight delay… maybe 10-2ms… But it’s Totally usable...
