Reaper Video Tuorials

I’m home sick like a dog today, so I figured I’d sleep, and take the time to learn more about my DAW.

I use Reaper, and if you haven’t checked the program out I recommend it highly.  It’s got fantastic routing features, is very stable, updated regularly by the developers (can’t say that for Cubase can you?). In fact, if I were a rich and famous musician I’d endorse it. But you don’t have to be rich to get yourself a copy. There’s a sliding pay scale for professionals as well as home users, so don’t be a douchebag and use a cracked copy- just buy the damn thing.

I found these great tutorials aptly titled I’ve already walked away knowing a lot more than I did, and each video is only about 8 minutes long. I won’t post any of them to my blog- you should check them out on the OP’s site. Here’s the vid list:
