Video: Welcome

(MUSIC). Hello, I'm Garrick Chow, and welcome to up and running with Reaper 4. In this course, I'm going to cover the basic knowledge and skills you'll need under your belt in order to this incredibly powerful and customizable digital audio workstation. We'll start with a tour around the Reaper interface to get our bearings, and I'll show you how to set up your projects and workspace, so you can follow along with me throughout the course. From there, we'll see how to set up Reaper, so you can record live audio from instruments or microphones, as well as how to import prerecorded audio files into your projects. I'll also show you how to connect (MUSIC), play, and edit midi performances in Reaper. And once we have some recordings made, I'll show you how to use Reaper's powerful editing tools so you can quickly and easily split, trim, and cross fade items.
