- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Garrick Chow and welcome to Up and Running with Reaper 4. In this course, I'm gonna cover the basic knowledge and skills you'll need to have 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, play, and edit MIDI performances in Reaper.

(upbeat music) 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, as well as perform several other types of edits and changes to your tracks. From there we'll progress to mixing our project, and see how to use some of Reaper's unique tools for organizing your tracks, applying effects, and automating changes during playback. And lastly, we'll see how to export your final mix, as well as how to export individual tracks that you might want to use in other projects. So, let's get started with Up and Running with Reaper 4.
