REAPER gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of the snapping and grid options available. An efficient grid saves time while you are editing your media items. In this video, Brian Block shows you how to customize your grid settings so that items will fall exactly where you want them to go on the timeline with a minimal amount of effort.

They also determine what types of items in your project…will snap to what or whether or not your items…will snap at all.…Remember the grid and snapping are both easily accessible…via the toolbar.…I can toggle them on and off from here.…See how the lines disappear when I turn the grid off.…Both the grid and snapping have options that are accessible…by right-clicking on them.…
